Hi mamas! I already posted this in first tri but I thought I'd ask you guys since we're all kind of around the same weeks..

I got a blood draw done for betas on April 14 and it came back at 18. I went for my 2nd on April 17 and it came back at 101, doubling time 28 hours. I thought it was pretty good but then my drs assistant calls me and says that 101 is actually low and he wants me to get another draw down next week to make sure it's rising and then possibly be seen for an early ultrasound. I don't understand why they're saying it's low when it more than doubled. My period isn't even due until this fri/sat so I'm still super early. Google is actually making me feel better (shocking! lol) because most everywhere I'm going says that 50-400 is normal range for 14dpo (which is where I would guess I was on April 17). Do my numbers sound good? Help me stop freaking out!

Every pregnancy is different, therefore numbers can be different for everyone at different stages. That being said, my numbers at 4 weeks were 103, and then 179. Around 5 weeks my number jumped to 642, then at 6 weeks my number was 18,752. So...wide crazy range. My first two numbers were "concerning" and that is why I had early scans and more bloodwork done. As you can see, my numbers did go up. Have you had another draw yet? Maybe they're just being extra cautious like with me. I know they suspected ectopic with my 103 and 179 results but once they saw the 642 their suspicions went down some. Hang in there...these early weeks are so rough.

I'm impatient now. My doctor won't see me until May 15th for the first ultrasound but I'm so impatient! Unfortunately I have awful symptoms too This morning I was so nauseous but couldn't eat anything to the point I was in tears. This might be a long haul if this keeps up XD

It definitely sucks having to wait for the first appointment to make sure everything is okay. I did make an appt with another drs office to talk about a VBA2C and they wanted a blood draw as well so I went yesterday and I got my numbers back and it went up to a 314! So from April 17-19 it more than doubled. I feel a lot better lol.

What are the signs of ectopic? I'm so worried about that

Sharp stabbing pains, period like bleeding, weakness/dizziness, hCG not doubling

Thanks. I have some lightheadedness but I get that with all my pregnancies. I'm so nervous! Hopefully everything is okay

Yeah Ashley, what Wrapunzel said. What made them suspect ectopic for me was my initial 2 hcg results.

Have you had an ectopic mouldy? Or was was that your hcg result for this pregnancy?
