only have a minuute but I got my HCG (39) not good....RE thinks it's a bad sign...any advice?

Hi girls well have to keep this short the library is closing.  My HCG level today was only 39...I think I'm 17DPO...had 2 IUI's one on the 23rd and one on the 24th of June.  FF says I o'ed on Day 24.  Is it possible that I could've o'ed twice.  If that's the case then I'm 11DPO...RE said thinks I o'ed when they did the IUI but can you o again.  It doesn't look good this will be my 3rd m/c in a little over a year...what do you guys think?
thanks!

mine were only 46 10dpo, so if you are in fact only 11dpo, then that seems right.  wait until Monday and see if they double.

I don't know why the RE would say it doesn't look good, really...I've always heard that HCG can't be evaluated with one result; it's the doubling that matters!  Also, I don't think that it's possible to have o'd twice, but you could have implanted late.

I agree with alikat - enjoy it!  Worrying won't change anything :)

Good luck and congratulations!

39 is not a bad number.The low side of a good number is 40/50 so you should be good.
Lets pray that you number double on Monday.
hang in there!

I don't think you can O twice.  Even if you have several follies they will all be released within 24 hours.  
I am sorry about low hcg.  I hope your RE is monitoring you closely to see what's going on.

I have heard of several women having numbers around 39 and having healthy pregnancies. I would wait until Monday to get upset. This may just be ok. Good luck!

You could have implanted a little later than some and that could be why your number is a little lower than expected.  This early, it really could be viable pg.  When do you go back for another hcg test?

Don't panic yet - one number tells you nothing! I think you sound sure of your O date (don't listen to the doc - they feel like they know everything). It took me 4 days to O after my trigger shot and I know that for a fact! People don't always O on "doctor time". Go with your gut (and ff if it concurs). Hang in there - we are pulling for you!!

Like everyone said, "Don't panic".  My friend just had her HCG drawn 13 dpiui and it was a 41.  RE told her to wait until the next HCG to see if it doubled BECAUSE IT MAY HAVE IMPLANTED LATER.  It was July 4th weekend so she went back after it had been 4 days and it went up to 216.  So, I know it is hard to wait, but the real sign is whether it doubles or not!  Hers was only 2 higher than yours.  She is now up to a 400+.

I would just wait and see, my  friend just found out that she was preggo, she was a day late and her #'s were only 42 and within 48 hours it went to 169. I will keep you in my prayers.

Hi girls!  Sorry I haven't been on...still waiting for all the mold junk to be moved..LOL.

I just have to say, "thank you" to every single one of you!!!  You all make me feel so much better...wish I had read this on Friday.  I pretty much have come to the conclusion that it is probably a bad thing but I do feel more preg. then I felt on Friday...have a few more symptoms.  BBs are a little sore, having some cramping and bloating...NO spotting.  Oh, and I went to my favorite restaurant last night and ordered the all you can eat...yeah, I always order it...I was repulsed!  It's all you can eat meat...too much meat...LOL.  If it is my 3rd m/c then Dh and I are going to wait until probably Jan. to try with the RE again.  I just want to enjoy him and get our marriage back...I think I've been MIA a little bit.

Thanks again girls!!

11dpo is sooooo early to do a beta. I had one at 14dpo, and yes, it was high, but I had triplets at the time.However, I did POAS at 11dpo and it was a BFN. I can't wait to hear how it goes Mon!!!!

All your symptoms ound promising, esp. aversion to meat. I think I could easily become a vegan now!

back again...thanks for all the positive thoughts! Sasparilla-  Yeah, I love meat...don't know if it's b/c they told me to expect the worst but I really haven't been eating that much this weekend...and the meat was too much!

Heath-  The more I think about it I think my RE has to be right.  I know I had mature follicle on the 23rd and it wasn't there on the 24th....so I think I had to o then.  Which would mean tomorrow would be 20 DPIUI.  Yeah, I better have some good numbers or else it didn't stick.  My progesterone is also not so good at 8.  Thinking about IVF or adopting....

I agree with Sasparilla and I LOVE your positivity! Its okay to stop ttc for awhile.  God will give us children when he sees fit, not when we see fit.  Hard to take, but its true.  IVF or adopting, huh?  There are a lot of children out there who need a good mom like you will be! =) Hugs!

hi ashort,
i have o'ed twice in a month before but it is really really rare and usually brought on by major stress.  i remember looking at your chart & thinking ff had your o' date possibly wrong this month.  i agree with the other ladies and think it might be late implantation.  i'm glad to hear that you are still having symptoms ~ my hopes are up and my fingers are crossed for lots of doubling symptoms.good luck!!

Hi girls!  So yesterday didn't go well...but it was expected.  My progesterone is 0. something.  Not sure what my HCG is but I'm going to call in a bit.  My RE mentioned that my FSH was in the "gray area".  He said he thinks to see them below 10 and mine was 12.  He thinks my egg quality might not be the best.  So he is recommending trying injectibles and IUI.  He thinks then at least one good egg might stick.  Dh went with me and said he was on board for that...he needs a break though.  We have had A LOT of **** going on lately.  Dh wants to try again the end of Sept. or Oct.  I agree with that...I need to wait until I have a couple of period anyway.  My RE thinks I will m/c on my own.  I hope so...I don't want another D and C.  Thanks again girls for being soooo helpful and positive!  Good luck everybody!
