Thank you for your kind words citrouille! Yes, this is my first try at getting pregnant! I turned 40 yesterday-- I will try again next month--I'm waiting for my HCG to get back down to Zero. I hung at 22 for two weeks-docs thought it was etopic but just most recent blood test showed its down to 12. I pray that by my next cycle i can try again! Do you have children or are you currently pregnant?

Hi Suzie Congrats. I am early ibn my pregnancy. My last LMP was 1/10 found out on 2/14 SWEET. My HCG was 788 which I was told only made me about 4 days along. Very confusing. I am checking mine again tomorrow, see I work for a gyn not OB just gyn. I still have to schedule with an OB tomorrow as well. Good Luck to you. Hope everything goes well.

I'm going throught the same thing as everyone on here. It's comforting to see I'm not alone. I had an hcg on Feb 16 & was 412. Feb 18 & was 413. Feb 20 & was 472. The doctor said I was probably going to miscarry but I refuse to give up. I also had a progesterone level drawn which will not be back for a week. My dr says this is more indicative of a healthy pregnancy. I will also have an ultrasound on Tuesday and I'm really nervous. After getting my hcg of 472 today, I cried all day, my husband cried, and I felt like something inside was dying. But again, I refuse to give up and I won't give up until I miscarry. Then, I'll cry again and try again. Good luck to everyone and I will pray for all you ladies. Please keep in touch.

I am almost 7 weeks pregnant and my hcg level is only 391. It started very low at 44 (4 wks) and then 198 (5 wks). I am going for an ultrasound next week and I am terrified to miscarry. This is my first pregnancy and I have struggled with infertility. It is so hard to hope for the best but expect the worse.

Hi all, Today i got the results, 7 weeks, hcg didn't rise much. it suppose to double. already had 2 m/c and i am very scared to lose it again. Found this website and reading about your entries..make me feel not so alone. so hard to have a baby. Take care all.

I went for an ultrasound yesterday afternoon instead of waiting until next week. They couldn't see a sac in my uterus. Doctor tells me it may not have grown or it may be planted in the wrong place. I am not in pain or bleeding so doc is not worried that it's in my tube. Got another hcg test done today. I'll find out results tomorrow. Anyone have a happy ending to a similar situation?

Wow, it's amazing to see how many women really struggle with the same issues, I have had 2 ectopic pregnancies, leaving me with one tube and ovary and I have also miscarried once, I am now pregnant again and the doctor is concerned about my HCG level not rising, it was 243 on 4/29 and only 284 on 5/2, I just had another one drawn today and am waiting on the results, I've sat in prayer the last week knowing the Lord has it in his hands, I still have the hope that with low HCG levels everything can still be normal. I wish all you the best!!! May God bless you and your families

Here's my story--on 5/7 I took hpt and it showed faint positive--took blood test on 5/9 showed positive but with hcg level of only 43.7. By Monday evening i was spotting brown and by Tuesday was full flow period. on Wed 4/11 i did another blood test and it was hcg 41.6. Thought for sure it was over! Then on Saturday 5/14 i went in for another blood test and the hcg went up to 113 (more than double) then this past Monday 5/16 it was at 235! (more than double). I'm going crazy! I go in for another blood test tomorrow--hope it has more than doubled again. Doc thinks perhaps that since i was on fertility (gonal F) that perhaps i had more than one embryo in there and one detached, hence the bleeding. You just never know---I've been reading that some women are slow risers and have perfectly normal pregnancies--i hope i'm one of the lucky ones! I've already had one m/c. Has this happened to anyone else?


Renee - May 20

well, Wednesday's hcg went up to 500! I go in on 5/23 for an u/s--wish me luck


Cami - May 21

Congradulations Renee! I will keep you in prayer. It's been just over 2 weeks now since I had to take the methotrexate shot. My last draw had dropped to 274 and I was having a tubal. I know there is still hope for everyone.


Renee - May 22

Cami, sorry to hear about your ectopic. Did you have severe pain a__sociated with it? I go in for an u/s tomorrow but wondered if pain would come as a first sign of ectopic. I feel good..no pain


Renee - May 23

Well, I just got back from doctor--the u/s shows a sac in my uterus! Doc said it was too early to tell if it was empty or not. I go back in next Monday for another u/s--she said it should double in size by then. I also had another blood draw--hopefully showing my hcg levels in the 2000 range!


Renee - May 23

:( just got the call from my blood draw--hcg is now at 1058--i would have hoped it would be in the 2000 range. I will go in in two more days for another test. Man--talke about an emotional rollercoaster!


Renee - May 24

well--a mix up with number its 1585--should still be 2000 but it's sure better than 1000

Leigh, My wife and I experienced a similar pregnancy to yours regarding HCG levels that leveled off for a 5-6 days during weeks 5-6. Unfortunately, we never saw anything but an empty sac. How did you make out? I am curious to know if any one has experienced a leveling off of HCG during weeks 5 and 6 with no signs of a fetus (just an empty sac) and eventually things turned around with a healthy birth. Best of luck to all.

I too had an hcg test, on July 28, it was 1670, I should have been about 6 weeks pregnant at that time, then 8-9-05 because I had some brown spotting, they redid the hcg test, the numbers are now at 7090, not quite doubling every 5 days. I do not know what to think, and am scheduled for another hcg on 8-15-05. An u/s done on 8-8-05 showed a yolk sac, but no fetus, unless she was hiding! I am also scheduled for another u/s on 8-16-05. Was wondering if anyone else has had low hcg levels and went on to have a normal pregnancy and deliver a baby? Thank you;
