Possitve Pregnancy Test But Low Hcg

This is my first IVF so my transfer was Dec. 18th, 2007 and my pregnancy test was on Dec. 28th which came out possitive (HCG 198). I went back for a second blood work Jan. 2nd, 2008 and HCG was 215. I'll be going back on Jan. 4th, for another round of blood work. What does this mean? The nurse things it might be a failed pregnancy. I would appreciate feedback for those that might have gone through this. Thanks.

whay does your nurse think is a failed pregnancy when the hcg levels are increasing??? surely it would be the case if it were decreasing....i think you should give them a call and ask them to explain. tell them you are getting worried and stressed and want to know what the nurse means. good luck x

The HcG levels should roughly double every two days. So if it was 198 on the 28th, on the 2nd it shoud be roughly about 800. That would be the reason the nurse thinks it may be a failed pregnancy. Don't despair yet.... Wait for the next results to see if they are climbing, they still can. When I had a miscarriage my numbers climbed to 650 and then stopped before I miscarried. I asked a million questions, don't be afraid to ask some yourself. That is what you are paying them for. Don't despair yet, my Dr. had told me that sometimes this does happen and them the pregnancy will eventually progress. They monitored the Hcg for ten days at the same level when she said I could let it happen naturally or she could do a dnc. I opted to let nature take its course and was able to grieve my lost baby better than I thought I would with the DNC. My wishes for the best for you.
