    Default Very low HCG levels

    I was so excited to learn I was pregnant but my first blood test earlier this week showed my HCG levels at only 42. I repeated the test 48 hours later and it only rose to 50. I'm booked into see my GP tomorrow, another 48 hours later so I guess I'll see what she says but I'm just wondering if anyone has any experiences with low and slow numbers like these. I've prepared myself for the worst and fully understand I am most likely going to miscarry. I've had no spotting or bleeding, but also no other pregnancy symptoms at all. Thanks for any words of wisdom xx
    I should also add that I am estimated as being 4 weeks 6 days along.

    I just got back from my doctor. I'm getting more blood taken on Monday. Though with my levels like they are we are just waiting for the bleeding to start. If I don't have my period by next week I'll need a D&C. Doc said there is no chance at all that the baby is alive. It's likely the egg fused and implanted but hasn't developed any further from there. Wasn't meant to be this time 😔

    Thank you for checking in and your kind words. It means a lot
    Unfortunately my HCG levels started dropping and I'm miscarrying naturally. I'm not doing too bad considering. Doctor says I can start trying again after I get another blood test when AF finishes to make sure the miscarriage is completed.
    Thank you again for your support x

    @AimeePR so sorry you are going through this.
    I guess the positives are that your body is doing what it needs to do on its own.
    I was in your situation 2 years ago. We started trying again straight away and didn't have another period after the MC. I know have a 13 month old.
    I believe it's quite common to get pregnant straight away, so if you are up to it I'd just keep busy! Hopefully you have good news for us in about 6 weeks. It took me 4 weeks to o!
