Betas. Especially high beta levels...

Postby queenypink » Fri Jun 16, 2017 11:01 am

Hello wonderful ladies! Im happy to share that I got my BFP after my second round of FET. I had one beauty 4BB embryo transferred and got my BFP on 8dp5dt, and beta today at 10dp5dt was 498.

My last pregnancy was a beta of 179.

Did any of you ladies have a high beta and only carry a singleton? Betas don't necessarily indicate multiples, do they?

I'm worried because I can't carry multiples (difficult medical history) so... freaking out over here! I want to move from being anxious and upset to happy and celebrate this BFP!

Mine at 9dp5dt was 300 and something with twins.
High betas don't necessarily mean multiples.

Thanks for the reply ladies.

Kylee - oh good, your beta with a singleton makes me so relieved!

Danaa - that's reassuring. I'll focus on that!

Queen, i was nervous too because I cant carry twins either due to previous 2x fractured pelvis and previous adbominal surgery.

Incase anyone comes across this post concerned about their high bet level...

Ultrasound was today at 7 weeks, and one healthy little bean in there!
