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.

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.

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

Hopefully your bloods keep rising.
