Well the numbers are in...

Beta today was 289. I guess I would be 18DPO or 15DP3Dt. I actually am happy with this number as was my clinic and they said there is no reason to retest.

Both other times I have been pg the betas came in at crazy high number like 1800 and 2200. Obviously this was not a good sign. So I am thinking 289 is a good number.

So now we wait again. My u/s is actually the 10th! One less day to wait. As my clinic informed me that they don't do 8 week u/s on Saturdays. And we wait. I am going to get good at this patience thing if it kills me.

I have to say I am wholly encouraged that the number came back at a much different value than the last 2 times. I also checked Dr. Google and everything I have read indicates that the average beta at 4 weeks should be between 5 - 426 mIU/ml . So that puts me smack in the middle and I am very happy with that. I wish be.ta.ba.se was working. But maybe it's better I don't over obsess.

So now I wait. I would be most interested to hear what your betas looked like. Feel free to comment.

That sounds like a wonderful number to me! This time, with twins, my first beta was 310...just barely higher than yours. Everything sounds so good!

Hey...just got your comment and couldn't find an email address for you....

Don't rule out anything! Do you read Gemini Girl? She has twin girls, and her first beta was 270, so you're definitely in the range. I don't know if that's even something you're interested in, but, you know, it's definitely a possibility. Of course, these numbers are hard to gain much info from at this point, but still...it could be twins.
