    Hey guys.. I have had multiple positive equate tests, 2 positive clearblue digital tests (and many negative clearblue digitals also!). Yesterday had the pregnancy confirmed at the clinic, edd 12/23/09 and I was 14 dpo.

    The nurse commented on how light my positive result was, as well as most of my home test have been very light (for 14 dpo).

    I got my first beta result back today and it is 13 :(

    I know they say dont worry about the first number, as long as they double in 48 hours they are fine. But how do you NOT worry with a crappy number like 13?!? A number like 13 at 14dpo can't be good news.. right??

    And if its really 13 I am surprised how many (light) but positive tests I have had!

    You can read and see pics of my test "progression" up untill yesterday (14 dpo) here...

    Im thinking of going into the walk in tonight for a nother beta even though its only been 24 hours. Should I wait untill tomorrow afternoon instead? Its just so hard to sit and wait :(

    Does anybody know of anyone else who has ever had such a low beta and had a healthy pregnancy or is a miscarriage a sure thing?

    A beta of 100+ from 14-15dpo is what the Dr wants to see...BUT, there are lots of women I know with very low betas that go on to have a healthy pregnancy...you maybe just have a late implanter on board, or is it possible you got your O dates a few days mixed up? As a few days makes all the difference with beta readings.

    Get another test in 2-3 days time, and if numbers are doing what they should (double every 48 hours) then it will be looking really good.

    The other possibility is that it might be a chemical pregnancy. I hope I haven't scared you by saying this, and i'm hoping its not, but it may explain the + tests followed by a low beta reading.

    Good luck for your retest :hugs:

    My last period was 3/17 and the only day we BD during my O window was on April 1st. I have a normal 29 day cycle. So I am pretty sure conception happened right around April 1st. I've bee thinking chemical pregnancy also because the test are so faint.

    My doctor told me that normal levels for 4 weeks are 9-130. It could be that you implanted later than most, just a few days ago. I do know a woman that had a Beta HGC of 13 and has a happy and healthy 1 year old baby girl. ( i can find the post for you if you like) I understand your concern though. with my third pregnancy my levels were a 6! Good luck and keep us updated.
