HCG Levels Not Cooperating (warning loss mentioned)

Well my HCG levels are not cooperating. Anyone have this experience and have it turn out to not be a loss? We're preparing for the worst as the RE feels it is not a viable pregnancy, but he has also said anything can happen. At this point we have to wait and see.  No bleeding, but I'm on PIO shots still. Slight cramping and sore breasts. 

BETA #1 - 97
BETA #2 - 236 (two days later)
BETA #3  - 569 (six days later)
BETA #4 - 567 (1 day later)

Next beta will be on Tuesday. Praying it has jumped up and gotten back into a more normal range.  The low numbers don't bother me as much as the fact that they are not doing the doubling thing every few days.

Re: HCG Levels Not Cooperating (warning loss mentioned)

  • Oh I'm so sorry you are in this limbo. I only had betas to track my loss to zero so I don't know much about them. Have they done a Sono to see if you have a gestational sac or more. Maybe seeing or not seeing something will help. I truly hope this works out for you.

    All welcome

  • I asked my RE and he said It's too early to do an u/s to see if there is anything present. I've also ready that your hcg level has to be over the 1,000 to be able to see anything.  So I'm stuck with just waiting for more blood tests.
