    Good luck today @Blossom74 - will be stalking ! @winsor, try not to drive yourself too insane. HCG is a fickle beeatch and can't be really used for an indicator of much at all imo. Probably why the clinics don't like to test it too many times. When will you be able to scan ?

    thanks. trying to keep this in mind. it was the falling progesterone (& slow rising hcg) that's also worrying me - it's still within range but I don't like that it dropped from 97->33.7. sounds like something has stopped. scan is monday 9am, so not soon enough. I'll be 7weeks 1day then (I think)

    Are you on progesterone support @winsor ? Sorry, you have probably already said but I don't remember seeing it...

    yes, they told me to keep taking the 1 pessary each night (100) but I've upped it to 3 in case. hoping not too late already (the standard box label says take 3 but clinic says 1 is ok for me)

    @winsor - I'm with @tuxcat in that I'd prefer not to have so many blood tests early on. I have had a blighted ovum and my HCG was 15,000 - at that time my obstetrician kept saying it was all about the scan, as HCG is so variable between people. Having had the drawn out experience of blood tests starting at 5 weeks I'd never do it again. I'd have an initial blood test to confirm the pregnancy and progesterone levels and then I'd do no more tests til a scan at either 6 or 7 weeks when you could expect to see something.

    Before you know it , it will be Monday morning and you'll be having your scan.

    thanks @Green lady. yes I think you're right. it would be far less stressful. the only advantage I can see is that it's given me a week to cry/prepare for the worst instead of a big jolt at the scan. though I suspect the jolt will still happen if we have a BO too.

    Blossom all the best with your embryo transfer today.

    Winsor if your scan on Monday isn't good, unfortunately "knowing" isn't going to soften the blow (if that makes sense) I agree with the others that repeat blood tests cause stress. My beta levels (in all 5 pregnancies) have always been on the higher end and doubled in 48 hours or less and I don't have a baby yet. You would think at least one or two might have given an indication but nope. I don't hold any stock in repeat blood tests as to me high levels mean diddly. Maybe low levels are the way to go for me. I certainly hope it is the case for you.

    @winsor my hcg fell rather quickly but only got as high as about 2000 i think. So very slow rising. Mine increased 60% only every 48 hrs and then eventually stopped post my scan. A few days later i mc but scan showed a sac, yolk sac but no fetal pole at 6wks. They said it could still be to early but i knew it was over. Hcg droped to 600 3 days post mc starting. Then wk after that it was less than 5.
