Hcg & Progesterone #'s

Well, I went for my second beta this am and she ordered them STAT (whatever that means).  It will only be 40 hrs from the first Beta though I have to keep reminding myself of that when she calls w/the #'s.  Wednesday, the day AF was due my beta was 44 and progesterone 21.3.  Ughhh, well, it's early, right :)  Just wanted to post to let you guys know!

STAT just means immediately. Which is good you will get your numbers faster.

It looks as though we are very close. I am waiting patiently to find out what your second series numbers are!! I had an appointment today and the doctor tells me I must have gotten pregnant within the last two weeks or so. And when my HCG gets up to 10,000 - 12,000 we can do an ultrasound. I am having my blood work done once a week now, on Thursdays and then seeing him on Fridays. How often are you having your blood taken or did the doctor specify? Can't wait to see those second set of numbers!!

HI Patty,
Still waiting....... but it won't be a full 48 hrs only 40 because I had my first beta at 4 on Wed and 2nd at 8:45 on Friday..Am I being weird about this? Anyways...he normally doesn't do blood work on everyone whom gets pregnant, I kinda nudged him in the right direction. We didn't talk about anymore beta's but, depends on the next set of #'s I'm sure....waiting..... We did schedule an ultrasound for the 27th, yippee, 2 weeks from today providing all goes well up until then.. Anything new w/you?

Hi Kelly,
My appointment went great today. I got there at 9:30 am and didn't walk out until 11:10 am. What were we doing?? TALKING!! I love my doctor! He was explaining everything to me and I was like yeah.. uh huh.. yeah.. la la la.. He looked at me and said "you know all of this already and that's what I like about you! One of the FEW patients I have that knows exactly what I am talking about! It makes my job SO much easier, and for that I Thank You!

You are not being weird about any of it! You have to have what you need to have done in order for YOU to feel better. And your doctor should understand that and appreciate that. I freaked out about the time limit I had on my beta's too and I was only lacking an hour!! So.. no you aren't being too weird!

My doctor asked me if I wanted to have my blood work done every week. I said absolutely.. so I can feel more at ease. He said "well then I am going to check *threatened abortion*(and don't freak out because it means nothing) on here so I can see you more often and so you can have blood work done as much as you like". I said "great Thanks!!" So I go in every Thursday now on.

Keep me up to date!! I'll be waiting!!

THanks You Guys, but I never got a call....I'm one of those people who we looked at my chart and made sure she had my cell# and gave her the benefit of the doubt when she said she would call :(   she said she would call AND DIDN'T!!!  Oh, well, no spotting, I'm on progesterone suppositories, what can I really do anyways. Geeze, if she would have given me a low # I would have obsessed all weekend. Now I'm pretty much worry free. I finally tested + on the OPK's Just for you test a holics :) ha ha ha and a very much darker frer, (come on I had 1 left ;). Anyways, thanks for all you checking on me. YOU BETCHA I'LL BE CALLING FIRST THING MONDAY!!  Have a great weekend.
Patty, sounds like your dr. is the bomb. Mine is to an extent......His flakey 29 year old nurse w/my name could you a little empathy....
