    Default Low Slow Rising HCG Levels

    Hi,

    This is my second pregnancy, and I'm getting low level HCG results - hoping someone can let me know if theres a chance this pregnancy will stick?

    HCGs
    Mon 2/5 23
    Tues 3/5 52 (next day)
    Mon 9/5 483

    I thought these numbers are ok because they're doubling within 48hrs - but the doc says they're still quite low so I'm doing another blood test on Thursday.

    My cycle is anywhere from 34-40 days and I think I OV around Weds 23rd April but I'm not 100% sure of that.

    Any advice would be appreciated

    If you ovulated around 23/4 then today you would be about 16dpo so your levels look excellent!

    Fertility clinics like to see levels above 100 at 16dpo and yours are well over that! My levels at 16dpo were 488 but my FS said that was well above average so sounds like you are also well above average too!

    Congratulations! Enjoy your pregnancy!
