    Default Low HCG Levels - 6 Weeks Pregnant

    Hi Ladies!
    Hope your all well today

    Was just looking for a little reassurance i guess... wondering if anyone has experienced the same?

    Im 6 weeks pregnant tomorrow & got my blood results back yesterday. The doctor told me my hcg levels were quite low for what they should be at nearlly 6 weeks pregnant - Around 100.

    I went in all positive & this just sort of deflated my bubble. I have no bleeding or any pain. She told me maybe its just rising slowly, to rest & stay positive. But i know if it doesnt rise its very unlikely to be successful.

    Im going back in 2 weeks to re-do bloods....this is going to be the longest 2weeks. Im a worry wart and every time i go to the bathroom in scared ill find blood

    This is my second pregnancy, my son is 6 months old. Im sure he will keep me occupied till my next appoinment!

    Must stay positive!!

    Hi PeanutCookin, just got back from giving a little more blood thanks to low HCG levels as well. Thought I might be able to at the very least let you know you're not alone!

    I've done a bit of reading online & some medical stuff, and it all seems to point to that none of us are the same, some HCG levels stay low and never reach the giddying heights that others do.

    My GP only made me wait a week between blood tests (this is my 3rd test in 3 weeks), so I know a little of how horrible the wait is, and how I dread going to the loo just in case... but I'm trying my best to not live (wee?!) in fear and just trust my body and my baby know what's happening.

    Thinking of you!

    I would be asking for a bt sooner than two weeks. Just see a different doctor if you are worried about an argument with the doc.

    I also would be asking for the repeat bloods to be done a lot sooner than 2 weeks.
    I had my bloods done every 2 days.
    I'd be asking for them to be redone in 2 - 3 days and hoping they would have around doubled in that time.
    Hopefully your dates are just a little out.

    Best of luck!!

    i had a MC last cycle, but at 5 weeks and 6 days this little peanut has lasted longer already taking victories where I can!

    I agree with Amara, if you feel like it, ask another GP for a blood test, or even see if your GP will reconsider. My GP is generally a nice guy, but sometimes he makes me feel like a paranoid! I think I'm rather restrained, at least in his presence

    Will let you know how I go!
