Gracias

Thank you ladies for all the reassurance and advice. I guess I should clarify why I was worried though. Although my nurse said that they like the beta to be over 100, and my clinic checks 14 days post-TRANSFER, most clinics and data available from evil dr googl.e say that the beta should be about 100 at 14 dpo. At the time of my beta I was 15 days post-retrieval.

I know, I know -- its only 24 hours and that I was probably well over 50 or more at 14 dpo. Especially since I couldn't even get a positive hpt at 13 dpo, I'm hoping the levels are rising quickly. Its just that nasty blighted ovum issue was last year at this exact time. And I'm just dreading a repeat event.

I want to move to LA next year and spend that year raising my child. Taking walks everyday in the sunshine and visiting fun shops and just enjoying that year. If this doesn't work out, I just don't know that I'm going to enjoy that year very much.

I'm sorry I'm being so negative. I know that I am lucky to even have a chance of things working out. I guess after so many years of trying and failing, its hard to believe there could possibly be a different outcome. I keep reminding myself -- we deserve this (you all do). Its just hard to remember.

Oh if only my boobs were sore! (wonder who google will bring over for that one?)

I understand the worry part. I didnt have a stick to pee on this morning and I am filled with worry until I get beta#2 results.

Happy Friday!

Here's to Christmas 2008 in LA, with your family of 4.

Can you stop in Colorado on your way?

Standing by for sore boobage...

Worrying is normal, especially early on. Hang in there sweetie.

At 15 DPO, avg HCG level is 59 mIU/ml, with a typical range of 17-147 mIU/ml.

I am praying that you have a west coast, palm tree Christmas with your foursome. It really helped me to take it a day at a time during those initial first anxiety-ridden days. Hoping you get good news.

I'm hoping for a fantastical number for you, a new baby, and every other Christmas present you can think up. Oh, and yes, some sore boobs.

Congratulations on your BFP!!I also understand the worry part. I am 22 weeks now, and it never ends. First we worry about the betas, than the symptoms (my boobs never got sore!!) and so on! I have my fingers crossed that the next beta will give you lots of reassurance

Well, let's remember that just because we have a certain DPO, or DPT, you still have leeway on implantation, up to 5 days. So things could go up for the better, doubling nicely, just not on quite the schedule you expect.

I am hoping and praying that everything is just fine and that your number will increase nicely.

Try and keep the faith sweetie!!
