    So if your HCG was, say, 700 at 6 weeks, and they scanned and couldn't see anything, wouldn't that mean the pregnancy was non-viable anyway, even though your HCG is under 1000?

    I know with natural conception there can be date discrepancies, but IVF is kind of a sure thing as far as dates go. So I guess my question is, why is there a 'limit' on what your HCG is to be scanned? And would that mean, for example, if your HCG was 900 at 8 weeks gestation, they still wouldn't scan you? Because I would have thought that a pregnancy with 800 HCG at 8 weeks would be non viable?

    Or am I looking at it wrong, lol......

    Help

    @Blossom74 - it's confusing. I've had the reverse - scans at 6 weeks and 7 weeks showing no foetal pole, no yolksac no heartbeat , but because my HCG was 15,000 - dropping but dropping in the 100's no the 1000's they wouldn't call it a miscarriage until week 8 - clearly the pregnancy was non viable - there was nothing there - but they tortured me and made me wait until 8 weeks before calling it. I think the reality is they won't call it a miscarriage based on either HCG or a scan alone and will look at the overall picture.

    Yes, you must be right @greenlady. I remember mine was really high but I still didn't have a visible fetal pole or yolk sac, let alone heartbeat.

    If I ever manage to afford another cycle I really do think I'll try and avoid any BT's aside from the first confirmation one. HCG really doesn't mean much to me anymore. For all intents and purposes, with a HCG of 45,000 (and still increasing!) at 8 weeks I should have seen a happy little bubba bouncing around with a great heartbeat, not an empty sac.

    Kind of makes me think HCG is just one indicator, but is not the be-all and end-all....

    From my understanding i thought under 1000hcg you couldnt really see anything on a scan cause normally by about 5 weeks or so your beta is around that anyway and you normally cant see hb until 6.5 weeks if you are lucky.

    If the Drs won't commit to a m/c and want to drag it out wouldn't it simply be a matter of stopping any progesterone and bringing on AF?
    My last m/c when the Fetus was still alive but hadn't changed size in two weeks, my dr just agreed with me when I said I should stop all meds and bring force a m/c. When you know, you know.
    Afm, I'm like a bear with a sore head today. First day drug free. No more progesterone, clexane, prednisone, progynova or provera. I'm in the bedroom now with the door shut because DP insisted on trying out his new sound system and despite my filthy looks and sarcastic comments, didn't heed the warnings about turning it down, helping me clean, putting down his frickin iPad, anything that would have appeased me (if there IS such a thing) so I've cracked it and shut him out. At least he's smart enough to not come in. I am just so fangry today and if this frickin auto correct doesn't stop changing my words this iPad will find itself embedded in the wall too !

    @Blossom74 i agree however next time i will be asking for regular bt only because ive had an instance of having a great first 2 bt then nothing until the 7 week scan and finding nothing there on the scan when there should be a heartbeat and my hcg was only 5000 when it should of been much more and i had no idea. This was a few yrs ago now.

    Last cycle, those early blood tests, every second day helped me to know when my pregnancy stopped. My hcg went 67, 100, 101, 4. So formed a helpful picture for me.
    With my other 3 pregnancies in the UK I didn't have blood tests just scans and they were super helpful at forming a picture too, starting at 5 wks.
