low hcg





OK so I just got back and I am still pregnant as of today. I went for my 1st HCG on 7-27-10 and it was only 32, I went for my 2nd 72hrs later and It was 68. She is not concerned that it did not double in 48hrs, because it doubled in 72hrs. This is a BIG first for me, with the 3 other m/c's my numbers NEVER doubled!!!!! They always dropped by the 2nd test. Everything looks the same down there, cervix still closed. She just thinks I ovulated later then I thought, which could be because I did not use OPK's this month or track my BBT untill the middle of the month. My numbers are low but she showed me a chart and they are in the range of what they should be, she thinks I am only 4 weeks not 5. I go again on the 9th for more blood, and the 16th for more blood, then an appt on the 17th and if the numbers are still going up she will schedule me for a scan. I am still naturally worried because I am still spotting, but she said If I am not bleeding heavily then I should be fine. I know my HCG levels are low, but I am holding on to a little bit of hope because they did double. So just keep me in your prayers!!! It $ucks that I have to wait two weeks to find out anything!!!!!!!!

I have been checking all day for an update on you...from my experience I think its nicer when your tests are scheduled farther apart..less stress waiting every 2 days to see whats going on.
I really hope this is it for you! I will keep my fingers crossed for you...between you, me and dscoqn one of us has to be the lucky one! I hope its all of us!! but not holding out to much hope for myself..

Girl dont stress out to much, I have come to realize if it is not going to happen then it was not meant to be. Although those words are harder coming from another person, I am truly starting to believe them!!! I am happy that they went up because they never have, and yes it is easier when they are further apart, because I am not going to stress everyday about it! Although it ***** to have  to wait that long. My Dr seemed happy for me she said she truly believes this one is viable! Yes I hope it is all 3 of us!!!!! Hugs and lots of sticky baby dust to you!!!!!!!

Girl, I have been on here for the last 2 hours lookin for ya!!!!  Well, technically, they doubled appropriately.  As long as it is every 48-72 hours.  So, let's stay positive!  Take it easy until your next appt.  Glad things are looking better than they have!

That's really good news hunnie - at least there is still hope! It's a shame that you have to wait till the 9th - why aren't they doing it every two days??  At least you can keep doing hpt's - they are a good indication of how things are going.  I get my 3rd beta back this afternoon but I have started spotting this morning and my lower back is killing me which is always a sign of impending miscarrige for me :(

Like butterflybabies said I really hope you don't lose yours as one of us has to come out of this ok!

Thanks Ladies!! @Kristen the Dr's office took forever!!!!!!!! I am staying positive and not stressing with this one. If it sticks then it was meant to be, if not well then, then I will cry!!!

@D The Dr doesn't think it is necessary to them every 2 days, she is very optimistic and thinks this is a viable pregnancy, she just thinks I am 4 weeks.

I'm sooooo happy that this is going well. I think about my girls every day, although I'm not on here everyday anymore doesnt mean you girls are not on my mind often (that is no word of a lie) I hope you all stay positive and everyone turns out to have very happy ending.

Well congrats on your numbers going up, that's a great start.  Mine dropped a lot with my MC by the 2nd test too so it looks like you're off to a way better start.  

Has your dr. talked about putting you on a progesterone supplement in the mean time.  Mine said she would put me on one right away the next time i got prego.  Maybe that is something that would help you too.  Some dr's are aggressive with that and others won't try it unless you bring it up but if it does the trick I say go for it.  I hope the next few days go well for you and you have as few worries as possible.  Good luck and you're in my thoughts!!!
