Learn About Beta HCG

A woman was wondering about her beta HCG levels (beta) in the early weeks. Here are some links with good information about beta in early pregnancy:

BetaBase -- an online database of beta HCG levels submitted by women with pregnancies that get past the benchmark of a heartbeat.

What is beta HCG? - info chart and calculator

IVFer's HCG Levels in Early Pregnancy Page -- info, calculator and links to other HCG pages/info

Human Chorionic Gonadotropin (hCG): The Pregnancy Hormone

What is hCG?

There is also this link which is not related but you might find interesting, this is related to how your body knows there is a fertilized egg at all and might explain why some women know that they are pregnant right away:

Early Pregnancy Factor

As for me, I'm 3-4 dpo and having PMS symptoms. It's been my best cycle since before I got pregnant so I've got my fingers and toes crossed. This is our second cycle trying without the fibroid, perhaps my best fertility ever. I hope this month is a success and it is so hard not to get one's hope up.
