LOW HCG but DOUBLING?


My Betas have been doubling (yay!) but the numbers are SO LOW. Anyone know of someone having betas like this and it turning out to be okay??


Trigger Shot- 1/11/18
IUI day- 1/13/18
1st Beta (14dpiui) 5.75
2nd Beta- (16dpiui) 17
3rd Beta- (18dpiui) 42
4th Beta- (20dpiui) 133.5
5th Beta- waiting for call from nurse....

all pregnancies start like that, you just caught it really early. the fact that your numbers are more than doubling every 48 hours is a really positive sign.

my doctor is concerned it could be an ectopic pregnancy because my numbers are so low. Also, I should mention I was bleeding bright red blood (moderately heavy) 15dpiui through 19dpiui (Sunday 1/28 through Thursday 2/1). I haven't bled since. And my numbers were still rising. I guess today's beta will determine what's going on...if my hcg doubles again I might be okay. If they level off or drop, it could confirm it's ectopic.

The part that stinks is, your hcg needs to be over 1000 to be able to see if it implanted in my uterus. My numbers are so low, I have to wait it out.

Your numbers are actually tripling so I would say itís a good sign.

mel28nicole, you're right. They are more than doubling! I will hold on to any little bit of hope I can.

Waiting for these phone calls from the RE's office make me so anxious. I stare at my phone all day waiting for my results. I think today's results will give me the peace of mind I need.

My HCG started out at a 10 because I found out I was pregnant really early. The fact that the HCG is doubling is a really good sign, my HCG doubled every 25 hours at first then once it got up higher it was every 55 hours. So even though it was super low to begin with, it just meant I caught the pregnancy really early.

I remember going through this a few years ago, I even posted a thread about it, Doctors looking at me all concerned because my numbers were so low, but they were doubling. I also was told to prepare for ectopic and also told at 1000 we should see something on a scan, went at 1800 nothing on a scan not even a sac, they wanted to do a small surgery to investigate in my tubes, 4800 we saw a empty sac, was told could still possibly be another in my tube, as numbers this high I should now see something, went back again (around 10,800) finally saw baby with HB she’s now 14 months x

The doctors scared the life out of me, counting down the weeks back from her due date turned out I was only 4w 3d at my first ultrasound no wonder we didn’t see anything! X

@ Keepsmiling91, wow that is an incredible story. It's amazing how we can let ourselves get caught up in what "ought to be". I really appreciate you sharing your story...it eases my nerves quite a bit. I am praying my circumstances turn out to be as positive as yours!

My beta only went from 133.5 to 165.4
So it stopped doubling. And my progesterone went from an 8 to a 7.9

I have to go for an ultrasound Friday to find out if it's in my tube or uterus and then figure out if we need to do a D&C or that methotrexate shot.

So bummed.
