I was 3 1/2 weeks post ovulation/conception and my levels were only 343...I freaked thinking the worst cause I expected higher. (I have miscarried once before and know a little about hcg levels) the next day I just expected them to be falling but were 372...then 2 1/2 days later they were 558 not doubling but almost. I'm prepared for the worst but is there hope? We are rechecking in 2 days...i'ts 4 weeks post ovulation today...this number seems low, anyone know of similar numbers with any advice?

Yes, you should have alot of hope. You should read all the posts under "Need Some Support........" and that might make you feel better about your situation. I think you are doing fine.

Thank you for writing back...I am getting my levels checked again tomorrow and will let you know what they are. It means a lot that you read my plea and gave me something back...it helped. :)

I think 343 sounds just fine. I think there is a little paranoia invovled because of your prior miscarriage, which I completely understand since I also had a miscarriage. I am now 6 weeks pregnant, but my HCG 17 dpo was 1,000 and I was freaking out because I thought it was too high. Doctor said it fell within normal limits. It appears that women can double anywhere between 36-72 hours. I think we get ourselves worked up before there's something really to worry about. Good luck and try to relax!

things don't look so good....my numbers were only 740 today and I have started bleeding a little with some pressure in my lowere abdomen. U/S saw nothing...but he said the numbers are to low to see anything anyway and we will recheck friday...I'm prepared for a D&C but is there really hope?

There is always room to hope. You have not miscarried yet. I had a miscarriage and it did not require a d & C so if you do miscarry I would really check into whether or not a d & c is necessary. From what I hear if you don't need one, you don't want one.

Hi. How many weeks are you, from your last mentrual period? I posted HCG level information under "need some support" post. The weeks gestation are in ( ) and the appropriate levels follow. Do not get a D & C until you are without a doubt sure that the pregnancy is not viable. Good luck and keep up posted!

I had a positive ovulation test on Aug 1 so we gave it a shot that night. That was 4 weeks ago. My levels are 740 and today I started bleeding, although bright red not a lot. I also have a lot of pressure in my lower abdomen :( The U/S today did not show anything...nothing in my tubes or any gestational sac but he said it was to early anyway....if I had not started bleeding I think I would have had more hope
