Low Betas

Postby saraelise » Fri Sep 22, 2017 3:52 pm

I had my 3rd iui on September 2nd. I started testing positive at about 11/12dpo and I'm currently 20dpo. I had my first beta on Monday and it came back at 47 and my second came back at 69. I know this is extremely low and the nurse said things didn't look good. I have had no spotting or cramps and my tests are progressing. I beat the control line with my last two tests. I'm not understanding how my numbers can be so low with such dark tests.

First of all I hope the numbers double and the nurse is proven wrong. As for why, First response test are made to detect the earliest pregnancy. I don't have the exact numbers, but they detect levels along the line of 5-15. So if 5-15 in a faint line, 15-30 should be a normal line, and anything over that a strong one. Again, the numbers are not exact, but you get the idea. Anything over 30-50 would be strong positive, and the tests are not made to see beyond that. Good luck!

Betas finally doubled and we were able to see the gestational sac at 5 weeks 5 days. Everything has been going great. I go tomorrow for another scan. Currently 7 weeks and 1 day!
