Hi everyone! I am hesitant to introduce myself here until next week, but I just couldnt wait! I got a tentative + beta yesterday. I say that because I am barely pregnant at only 9dpo today. Yesterday at 8dpo I got a very faint + on a hpt and called the doc. They sent me for beta and it only came back at a 7. The nurse said it was fine for 8dpo, but to be "cautiously optomistic" and wait until next week to see where we are at with my hcg level. After 21 months ttc and one round of clomid and preseed, I think this is the one. I need lots of sticky dust though! Has anyone else had a beta really early? If so, was the number that low? Sorry for rambling, I am just so excited and nervous. Thanks so much everyone.

Congrats girl! You had probably just implanted so 7 should be fine. It's not so much the number as the doubling time. It should double every 48-72 hours. My first beta at 12dpo was 96 but you aren't quite that far in yet. Let us know how the next one goes.

Well, I spoke to soon, Sad My numbers did not double and I started heavy cramping and bleeding today. Dr. said it was an early miscarriage, and if I wouldn't have tested so early, I would have never known. Thank you to everyone for the congrats. We'll keep trying until we get it right.
