First Beta in...

Beta is 356 - 9dp6dt -although nurse says it is equivalent to me testing last time at 9dp5dt for IVF #1. Wouldn't it be a day beyond?

Last time it was 259 on 9dp5dt and I was pg at the time with a singleton.

Estrogen and progesterone are good numbers, but lower than last time. For FET, you are on PIO longer. (at least that is what the nurse told me before we started). I was off of PIO last time at 4 weeks and on suppositories. I did have super high estradiol last time that stayed high for a long time due to mild OHSS. I'm excited and scared of the possibility of twins. My peri said I could transfer twins during my prepreg. consult with him. It's in God's hands now. I am trying not to worry too much.

Taking things day by step at a time. Next step is 2nd beta on Friday. Last time I did 4 betas as they weaned me off of estradiol and progesterone. I may have about the same before my first u/s.

Spotting is gone today, very slight yesterday. The IVF nurse called with new instructions, but I didn't get to talk to her this afternoon. I did take the call when the other nurse called me around 12pm today. My phone died on the 2nd call. Their message just said to go in for a beta on Friday and continue my PIO and estradiol.

Thanks for everyone's support. Interesting food for thought....A girl on my incompetent cervix board lost her baby the SAME DAY that I did half a country away from me and she found out this week that she is pregnant too. That is so weird. Another girl on that board is doing a FET later this month, but transferring only one as she lost twins in December. She doesn't want to chance twins at all. Well, she said she had a dream that I tested and got a BFP. She had it the night before I actually tested. Very strange...
