    Default Low HCG levels

    Hi,
    I'm looking for a bit of reasurance about my low HCG levels.

    I got my BFP on the 9/11 after having my second IUI. Yay!
    I got a blood test the day after and my HCG was 58 at 14dpiui.
    On 18dpiui it was 266, so it had taken 42 hours to double.
    Yesterday, at 26dpiui my hcg was at 1776. It's now taken 70 hours to double, but has gone up just over 60% in 48 hours.

    My clinic is telling me everything about this is fine. Most things I've read on the internet seem to say the same thing.
    But I can't help but worry, especially when read about lots of women with HCG numbers up in the 10s of thousands.

    Has anyone here had similar numbers and gone on to have successful pregnancies???
    I'd love to be more relaxed, as I'm sure it's better for me, but I can't really help it!

    I don't have as many numbers to compare it to but I always have low HCG numbers. With my current pregnancy at 14dpo it was 33, two days later 70. It went up but only just doubled (I can't remember numbers after that). But in all of my pregnancies I've never had a hcg number in the thousands and I have two healthy children and I'm almost 32 weeks.

    It's still rising which is good so try not to stress yourself too much.
    Goodluck

    Thanks, it is comforting to hear that other people have been in the same boat and everything has turned out alright.

    As long as it's still rising then that is a good sign.

    This pregnancy my hcg at 5 weeks (so 21dpo) was 77. Really low, and was slow to rise but here I am due any day now.

    The fact that it's rising is the main thing. With my first pregnancy my levels were quite low at the beginning, I can't remember any numbers tho sorry. The gp sent me for another set of bloods to check if they had risen as she was worried. They had gone up slightly (not much from what I remember) and I've currently got a very healthy almost 3year old sitting next to me now. Try not to stress as long as they are going up that's what matters.
