Hi, Ive been lucky to get a positive result at the weekend and I have to go up everyother day to have blood tests to make sure my hormone levels are increasing, what level do they like you to get to before that will do a scan?

Congratulations on your  ^BFP^
The clinic tend to scan you once your levels are between the 10,000 - 12,000 mark.
Enjoy your pregnancy!

Hi Michele,

Congratulations on your BFP,

i dont think they scan you untill your at least 6 or 7 weeks pregnant as they would not be able to see much before that point,

Mine dont sound so great now compare to yours, but then you are having twins  :)
I think I may need to ask more questions there tomorrow as I don't want to panic when I compare 18 dpo is still only a third of your count, but then tomorrow way speed up??

Good luck with everything and hope your feeling well

You dont need to worry silly  ::)

Mine started off high so will have to carry on high  ;)

Yours are more than doubling which is excellent, doesnt matter about the numbers as long as they are doubling every 48-72 hours you will be fine  :-* if they were worried they would of said trust me  ;D

Good luck hope there still low for you :)
I think I was one of the few who had the side effects from it one my first go - chills, headaches and felt so weak I couldnt even talk.  Im not a weak person as I felt good through out the IVF treatment but that Im not looking forward to again - I here that if it drips through to quickly it can bring on the effects more  ::)

Hi there. I had a positive result on Sunday (1st time ICSI, feel so lucky...). HcG was 170 (15 days after EC) and today is 249 - annoyingly they aren't doing a blood test tmw so i won't know if i'm doubling in the right amount of time or not, but they didn't sound too concerned. I find that the thing with ARGC is you have to let them take control and try not to worry around it (impossible?!) and they have delivered such a good result so far that i'm happy just to go with it.

Hi Mel - congratulations - are you still buzzing - I still cant believe its really happened. Your levels are good, mine are up to 3420 on day 22 (2 days ago) which they are happy with.  They said they like them to double every 2 days so I have been going for blood tests every other day and hoping for my 1st scan early next week.  Looks like I may get away from the IVIG again as the levels are doubling and not slowing down - hugh relief :)

If it helps I have my gestone done by my GP's nurse.  When you are going to ARGC the nurse there will also do it for you.  I have had them do it for me at weekends if I am up there. 

Good luck

Michele
