Today I got my Hcg level back at 4215, last friday (3 days ago) it was 5300. I know this is a bad sign. Anyone that can offer any stories of hope?

Lenny: how far along are you and have you had an ultrasound yet?

I am 7 weeks by dates, 6 wks 3 days by u/s. My last u/s showed a heartbeat but it was slow (88 bpm). I am having another u/s done this morning. I am preparing myself for the worst. It is just so hard.

Oh hon, I'm so sorry. I know how hard it is, a similar thing happened with my first pregnancy. I know hcg levels are supposed to go up continuously, but I've read of ladies who's levels took a dip and their babies were fine. Just hang in there. This is the hardest part. And yes, 88 is slow, but I've seen worse that have gotten faster. Let's hope you just have a slow starter. I'll be thinking of you and praying for you.

Thanks kim...I just got back from my u/s and the news is not too good. The heartbeat is only 80 bpm and the sac is becoming an irregular shape which the doc said is a bad sign. I see be OB on Tuesday, so until then I wait to see what happens. Thanks for your support and prayers.

Oh I'm so sorry to hear that. I'm thinking of you and hoping for the best. It is such a difficult thing to go through, I know.
