Betas!

Feb 21, 2015 - 13 comments

My first beta which was drawn around 13 days post a 5 day blast transfer was only 236, the clinic wanted it to be at least 270, I was unable and still unable until Mon to get a second drawn. The first was drawn on the 15, cause I am out of town and unable to get to a clinic to get a req. should I be concerned with this low number?? I know it matters if doubles and that is the main thing but the clinic only wanted one draw until I had a "low" number. Now I can either get a secon draw on Monday or just go for an ultrasound on the 5th (it will be the fourth cause I thnk I work on the 5th). I am trying not to worry cause my hpts are getting darker but I admit I'm a little concerned!
Anyone have any advice or opinions?
Thanks!!

First of all, Congrats!  

Secondly, betas are so subjective.  There really is a "right" beta number.  Go for the second draw to see if it's appropriately rising. If it is, hang in there until the ultrasound and if not, push up the ultrasound.  

Hugs!

I'm not sure about how long it takes for numbers to really rise with transfers, but my first beta was only 71 with chloe, and that was 11dpo, and she's just fine!! I would do the 2nd draw just for peace of mind!

My 1st beta draw with my son was just 93.  Try to relax and maybe go ahead and schedule the 2nd beta for your peace of mind.  I believe that 1st beta is a great number to start!!!  Congratulations again....I am so excited for you!

My comment should have said there really ISN'T a right beta number!  Sorry for that typo.  I hope your next one is doubling well!
