Low Hcg

Hi ladies, 
I found out I was pregnant on Friday, 3(ish) days before my expected period. My doctor had me start progesterone and had my Hcg levels checked. On Friday they were only 14. On Sunday, they were 61. He says this is low, however, he’s going off my LMP, which was December 29th. I told him that I have longer cycles (38ish days) and I usually don’t ovulate until cycle day 23-24, meaning I didn’t ovulate (most likely) until January 20 or 21, making me 11DPO when I got the 14 and 13DPO when I got the 61. Am I that low? I had a miscarriage in November and I’m petrified it’s going to happen again :( I added a pic of my test profession lines.

    We really can't give you much help here. The big thing is that your HCG continues climbing. Until you get an US there is no way to confirm exactly how far along you are if you were not temping/doing OPKs to confirm your ovulation.

    ETA: it's against TOU to post anything you peed on, other than the "what does a positive pregnancy test look like"
  • @TannaHagy No, you're not low. Hcg is supposed to double every 72 hours. There's no way to tell when you Ovulated at this point but I don't see what that has to do with your betas doubling or not. 
    People think we become mothers when we give birth but the truth is we become mothers the moment we start calling our babies to us in our thoughts, dreams and prayers. Some paths are short and some are so long that you can easily forget where you were headed.

    How I feel all of the time.
