    Default Help with HCG levels?

    Water lily, my FS says 48-72 hours is fine. Try to stay positive, that's still a nice big jump in your level

    Most sites and drs say anything between 48-72hrs is good. You're in the range! Try not to stress out... Waiting is the hardest thing! Your numbers are good!

    Default Help with HCG levels?

    Thank you so much guys! It's really awesome to have the support!

    I'm being really positive. Even talking to my belly, willing it to stay sticky

    My scan is on the 14th so not that far away.

    I think the worry is always going to be there especially whilst having no symptoms other then cramps and sore nipples

    Default Help with HCG levels?

    Just have to say... This is my story so far and I'm still early and anything can happen...

    Mon-hcg -2002
    Tues- scan which shows sac and yolk and nice lining - less than 5 weeks they say.
    Wed-hcg- 2050 (at which point I've already all but given up hope)
    Fri-hcg-1953 (at which point the drs apologise and say its not progressing)
    Tues-scan to confirm pregnancy isn't progressing. Finds a heartbeat and 6wks 2days foetus. All healthy and normal.

    I'm still freaking about the hcg, and also my progesterone is a bit low (22). I only know about the because I've had 2 miscarriages in a row this year, so I asked them to check.

    They've ordered progesterone pessaries for me (which are $100 a week because I am not an ivf patient) and they advised me to take them for the next 5-6 weeks...

    It's hard not to expect this one to miscarry as well.

    So anyway, bottom line is apparently the hcg can fluctuate and not necessarily mean the worst, although, twice this year, it wasn't good news for me.

    Here's hoping yours is perfectly normal.
