I think unfortunately you have to play the waiting game.  The only way as you know to see if this is a viable pregnancy is to see what that number does.  Perhaps the embryo(s) implanted late and that's why the number is where it is.  Think positive & SSBD! - jen

I think this waiting game is the worst part of ivf, as 40smama said the only way to truely know if it is a viable pregnancy is to get the repeat blood test. Good luck and let us know how the repeat blood test goes!

your number doubling is very, very good news - I really think you have a shot.  I imagine they will continue doing a hcg until the number is over a certain limit (or at least that's what the case was w/me).  I wish you much luck and SSBD!

Today I did another HCG level....It went down to 50.7  
I'm so discouraged.I have to repeat the test again on 2 days...
Did it ever happen before to someone and still had a viable pregnancy ?
I hope I don't have an ectopic pregnancy ...plz wish me luck and pray for me .

I was always told it doubles every 2-3 days


i googled doubling rules and found this:


In about 85% of normal pregnancies, the hCG level will double every 48 - 72 hours. As you get further along in pregnancy and the hCG level gets higher, the time it takes to double can increase to about every 96 hours.

Hi
I had my first ivf cycle and found out the the pregnancy test was positive with a Hcg number of 95.  The nurse told me that it was a good strong number. I went back 2 days later for another blood test and was told that it was 135. She said that they really like to see the number double and that I would have to come back again in 2 days to repeat the bloodwork.
The nurse sounded like it was not going to have a good outcome..

Please advise... Im so upset..

If you scroll up on this thread, you'll see a post by lori0615 that talks about hcg levels doubling rate.  The only way to know on your pregnancy is to see if your number goes up at least 70%.  With a number of 135 w/previous one being 95, it's just too hard to tell since it's not quite up to that.

I know how hard it is to do the waiting game - bless your heart.  Hang in there and try to think positive - jen

P.S. Google hcg numbers - you'll find quite a few interesting posts - you can also post your question to the expert forum for a small cost.  Good luck!
