Hello! Before I start, let me say that I know this probably means I have a chemical pregnancy. I got a trigger shot around 11 am on 6/18. My doctor did a blood HCG test the morning of 7/2 (14 days after the trigger shot - not 14 days after ovulation) and my HCG was 26.4. That seemed low to me but I know the numbers have to start somewhere. I went back the morning of 7/4 for more bloodwork and this time my HCG had dropped to 25.1. It's a small decline but I know not a good sign since that number should double every 48 hours. That was probably 15 dpo. With my first pregnancy, my initial HCG was 84, and I ended up pregnant with Identical twins so the numbers skyrocketed. (I lost one of the babies at 29 weeks.) Has anyone had a similar experience with a decreasing HCG this early on? Like I said, I know it's consistent with a chemical pregnancy, and couple possible mean ectopic, but just wanted to see what other people think. I don't know if a drop of 1.6 is a small decline or if any decline this early on is significant. I'm pretty positive that the same lab was used both times, though the test on 7/4 I guess could have been sent elsewhere since it was a national holiday. I'm going back for more bloodwork on 7/7 but now I'm nervous that I'm going to miss the signs of an ectopic pregnancy. After losing a baby at 29 weeks, finding out I had a chemical pregnancy just doesn't even compare, but I would love to hear any other similar stories, regardless of the ending - happy or sad. Thanks!
