Beta #1 (run locally)

My friend, the doctor I used to nanny for, helped me get  bloodwork drawn to be run locally and also to be sent to PPVI as soon as I can get in touch with them tomorrow.  I got the HCG number just a few minutes ago and P+15 it's 572.  I'll post the story of everything so far later, but I'm going to evening Mass in a few minutes so this is just a quick update.  I got a progesterone prescription (suppositories, can't get PIO on Sunday) and I'll start that tonight.  The local lab should have the progesterone in the morning and I'll update once I hear.  I'll be calling both PPVI and my local ob/gyn tomorrow and I'll let you know what I learn.

P.S. Does anyone have a link for a chart of average HCG days post ovulation?

  1. This site has a chart: http://www.betabase.info/showBasicChart.php?type=Single
    They also have one of those doubling calculators that will make a chart based on your first and second beta numbers.

    Your #'s are great, too! Congrats again!!!

  9. Oh my goodness! We just got back in town today and I just saw this post. Is it pathetic that I just started tearing up reading this! I am so happy for you....what a blessing. You will be in my prayers. I can only imagine this happiness. Wow! This is so deserved!

    I honestly have been praying for you lately. You were one of the first blogs I ever read through the whole way and ever since, you just stuck with me. I would read your comments on other peoples blogs and would just know how much your heart desired. I'm praying for you still. God bless you:)

  10. let me just say that the day i tested was that day or later and your hcg is every bit as high as my highest two if not higher. it truly is an awesome number. truly. those hcg charts have a huge range, but I am telling you, you are off to a GREAT start. glad you are getting progesterone support already. so thrilled for you! p.s. there is lab variability so if your next one is somewhere different and it doesn't double, try not to worry. that happened with charlie and we thought we were going to lose him then and there, but it was totally lab variability. totally. PRAYING!

  12. Belated congratulations! A happy and healthy nine months! 572 is a good number for P+15. I was 472 at P+17.
