First Blood

Results from Friday's bloodwork are in.

hCG: 9700 (5W2D, or 23 DPO). Nurse Practitioner called it "very good," but I have no reliable internet source to prove it.

Progesterone: 22.1

TSH: 2.103

T4: 1.33

How to spend the time till tomorrow afternoon or Wednesday morning, when the next numbers come in? Why, by grinding my teeth to little bloody nubs, of course!

It's a very safe beta number, look here

You're in the top quartile. This embryo is doing well so far.

I wouldn't consider myself a good internet source, but with my twins my beta at 22dpo was 5133.

Like Thalia says, check betabase. That's a great number. Keep in mind that the higher your beta gets, the slower the doubling time. So to be average you'd want a doubling time of about 60 hours. When's the ultrasound?

Yeah. That's pretty good. And also, Einstein was "pretty smart". Awesome, awesome, awesome news. I will be continuing the furious pacing until the results come back later today or tomorrow (your doctor's office really digs torture, don't they?)

Also, like millie said, after 6000, the doubling time starts to slow down, which is good--means Baby Bugs the Sequel is doing the right stuff.

Patiently waiting for the doubling! An infertile coworker had a first beta at 3385 and we just did ultrasound today and she's expecting twins.
