    Default Low HCG result - advice needed please.

    Hi all,

    After trying for quite a while, we finally got a positive hpt last Wednesday. I went to the doc on Friday for confirmation etc and had bloodwork done. I got the results back yesterday, and my hcg was only 69 on Friday 😔 (4 +5 by docs calculations, 4+2/3 by mine) I know this is technically still in the "normal" range, but it's still definitely at the low end, and to be honest I am scared as hell that something is wrong. Does anyone have any positive stories about low starting hcg levels please?
    Thank you from a panicking first time mum-to-be x

    With my first my HCG was 15 at 4w then 81 at 4w4d. She is a happy healthy girl now. It was a stressful wait till the next blood test coz I really had no idea what it all meant, but I think it’s just coz the pregnancy tests give us results so early, and we are so eager to get bloods done so quickly. I’m sure it will be fine, are you going for follow up bloods?

    This time at 4w4d mine was 234 so higher than last pregnancy but still not massive I guess.

    So risen from 69 to 234 in 2 days? Sounds like it’s doubling ok!

    Thanks so much for answering 😊 I had more bloods done today so will hopefully have an answer soon! Fingers crossed it is just that its early days and that there is a beautiful little sticky baby happily settling in!

    Hey Narabulla how did your second test go? I had a test Monday and HCg was only 136 which my OB said was low. I have to wait until tomorrow to get bloods again I would have been 4+1 Monday according to my LMp but both of my boys always measured late so I think I must ovulate late.
