Well, I headed to the lab on 09/11 and there was the girl that has done all of my blood draws. I explain to her my situation and she told me that the beta test isn’t processed at their facilities. They do the blood draw but they send the sample to another lab, and because of that they keep track of those orders a lot, they could still process my request but I needed to sign this paper with the name of my doctor…. And of course I did so!
I had my blood drawn and as the sample isn’t processed in the same lab, I needed to wait 24 hours to get the results….. The wait began and the next day, when it was time to go pickup the results it was raining a lot here!!!… I wasn’t sure how bad the traffic was going to be and was afraid I couldn’t get to the lab before they close so I called and they gave me the results by phone, and told her I was going back to the lab the next day to have another beta….
Now, both results are back!!!…. My beta on 09/11 at 13-14 DPO was 294, and the one on 09/13 at 15-16 DPO was 887….
I have just no words.... I am truly a.m.a.z.e.d, and s.h.o.c.k.e.d, and s.u.r.p.r.i.s.e.d!
BabyMed has this nice H.C.G. calculator and graphs your values in a chart so you can compare them with the average data of singleton pregnancies. This is what my values look like in the chart:
There was a 202% H.C.G. increase in the two-day period and my doubling time was 30 hours…. I really don’t know why my hormones levels always are OFF CHART!!!!…
I was surprised by my numbers, I really hope it doesn't mean there is something wrong!!!... It seems that for us, the worries never end and I know it is still early…. I will try to take one day at a time, anxiously waiting for the appointment with our FS next week on 09/26. For now I am on cloud nine, over the moon and I want to enjoy it!
