Beta = 354

17dpo. Not bad, but not great in comparison to my previous pg which were ~350 at 14dpo and ~850 at 16dpo, and ~500 at 15dpo. I am hoping it's just because IVF pg tend to have lower betas than natural, and I believe I found a scientific paper to that effect when I was researching why my betas were so much higher than those most people were posting.

Going back on Monday for a repeat. Not so worried about that, more about what happens in a few weeks, but I think that's only natural based on my m/c being at 8.5 weeks. I imagine i will need a lot more hand holding as / if we get closer to that.

Updated: I get to change to endometrin instead of PIO. Whoop whoop!

I know it's just the first hurdle, but it's an awesome number!! :)

I think it's a totally great number, and easily affected by the actual day and hour of implantation. Sending lots of great vibes your way!

I think that's a solid number. I was at 277 at 16dpo, and I think there were still 2 in there at that point. Have you looked at Betabase?

Great news! I've realized enough time has passed I don't even remember any of my beta numbers in detail. I think that's a good thing!

Sounds good to me. My experience has always been that you need to be at 100 or above on 14dpo, which you would almost cetainly have been, so I would not be too concerned. But always nerve wracking as you say. Hang in there.
