    Default Low HCG levels

    I'm 5+5 weeks pregnant today. I had some pain yesterday and went into the hospital given my history with an ectopic.

    The hospital did bloods and my levels were only at 132. They could not find a sac on the ultrasound, either in the uterus or outside. I've had a very small amount of bleeding, it's mainly dark brown coloured blood.

    I'm happy they did not find a pregnancy outside the uterus but I'm really worried that my levels are so low. I'm scared it's a miscarriage.

    Has anyone else had very low levels but a successful pregnancy.

    I'm with @Mamasupial sounds like your dates are way out. Hcg that low would be around 4 weeks total not 5+5. Mine @ 5wks where 750 and you couldn't see the sac until 6wks.

    My HCG at 5 weeks was 77, I'm now 15 weeks.
    HCG levels have such a wide range of "normal", you will get more information from a subsequent test to see what rate they are rising at.
    Try not to stress. Bleeding isn't normal, but is common (I've had bleeding 5 times this pregnancy). I know it's easier said than done, but please try not to stress until you know more. X

    My hcg always starts low. If you are only 5 weeks what they have seen is normal. I would get hcg checked again and see if it's rising/ get another scan done in just over a week to see if it's grown and can see Bub now.
    I had a scan over 6 weeks with my youngest and was told 'that may be cells of a baby but I can't be sure'. And that was an internal scan.
    Goodluck

    I don't think so but I'm going to ask my fs about that tomorrow. I confident on the date I ovulated as I had a trigger shot so it had to be within 24-48 hours of that.

    Thanks @babymummatobe

    I have repeat bloods tomorrow morning, I'm hoping to see them at 260+

    I'm trying to be calm and not stress, but it's so hard. I'm back working tomorrow so hopefully that will distract me between dr appointments

    Fingers tightly crossed for you. Could have been a late implanter?

    Thanks @Mamasupial

    It would have to be very, very late. I only started having some blood at around 25 dpo

    Hopefully your bloods keep rising.
