40 - First IUI BFP....but...

Postby missysgonnadoit » Mon May 16, 2011 4:45 pm

slow rising betas:

5/12 - 298
5/14 - 406
5/16 - 555

They are having me get an ultrasound to check for ectopic. I doubled at 4.5 days exact between the 3 dates. ( instead of the 2-3 that they prefer)
I am trying to stay positive. My doctor said that doubling is not an exact science but that I should go forward like this is a normal pregnancy until I have a reason to be concerned,

I feel great, no pain, no spotting. BBs are tender, falling asleep at an early time.....pretty normal stuff.

Any thoughts friends?

I've been told that it's a % they will look at if it doesn't double.

Praying that all is fine for you and baby :praying:

Thank you. Ultrasound in a few hours and I am not feeling very hopeful. It took 23 months to get here, I am not sure what makes me think I ma going to get lucky now.....

I appreciate your reply!
