    It seems to me, that the digi weeks estimator doesnt count from your last period but from when you actually got pregnant. When the doctors office (not my obgyn) called to tell me my beta they told me i was 2-3 weeks pregnant. Which means 4-5 weeks to us and an OBGYN. Know what I mean? So your 3+ wouldn't show up til 5-6 weeks. Hope that helps!

    Mine showed 3+ at 5wks 3d . I was worried because I had expected it to show sooner based on betas, but evidently I had nothing to worry about! It doesn't read 3+ until hcg levels are around 3000-4000.

    2nd betas are drawn and I got my Progesterone results from Monday. It was 39.2 so at least it's a high number and that's one less thing to worry about. He did put me on Progesterone just in case. It's the oral, so not too bad. It just makes me sleepy. My Lovenox has been ordered and I start it tonight , along with a baby aspirin. He said we'll hold off for now with the steroid, which doesn't make me happy but we'll discuss it at my next appointment. Now just waiting for beta results....

    Hoping and praying for a great beta today !! Your progesterone levels are fabulous ! Oral progesterone makes me really sleepy too .

    I'm sorry he's holding off on the steroid...I'm sure that's nerve-wracking for you !!! I'm looking forward to talking to my MFM dr about starting a low-dose steroid and possibly lovenox in my 2nd tri because of my unexplained losses...my guess is he'll say no, but it sure won't hurt to ask.

    Great progesterone numbers! I take the oral stuff too, I didn't notice an issue with being sleepy ... but I've always been sleepy in the 1st trimester.

    Holy cow! I just gave myself my first Lovenox shot and OUCH! The needle didn't hurt. It's the medicine itself. My belly is on fire! 🔥 It will be so worth every pain, in the end though.

    I woke up to very sore bb's today. That's a good sign. They've been a little tender but today it almost hurts to look at them. Lol. Not complaining at all. Bring on the uncomfortable pregnancy symptoms. I welcome them with open arms.

    those are great levels Cindy, I hope this IS your Rainbow Baby! Did you know you had to take lovenox due to blood clot testing you had to previous take showing you had bloot clot issues in the past?

    All of my clotting tests were fine but my Dr wants me on the meds just in case. We couldn't find any reason for my losses so we are doing everything possible to ensure a healthy pregnancy.

    Thanks for sharing Cindy, I have not found out any reason for my losses either and my round of blood clot testing came back fine also and all they did was prescribe me to folgard and one baby aspirin a day. Maybe next time I am lucky enough to get pregnant I will mention that and see what my RE thinks about it. Your story has given me hope!

    Ouch Cindy, sounds like the shots are no fun, but it will be worth it! It's amazing how much moms due to help and protect their babies before they are even out of the womb....small things our babies will never know about but creates an amazing bond just the same.

    I have decided to wait closer to 7 weeks to have an ultrasound. I want to make sure we see everything, especially a nice and strong heartbeat. I'm really supposed to go once my betas hit 1,000 since I've had a tubal reversal. It's only to make sure it's not an ectopic pregnancy. But I'm just going to have faith and be strong and hold out until 7ish weeks.
