HCG levels not looking good
Thu, 10-11-2007 - 10:20pm
I am so bummed. My levels only went up 60% with this hcg test (my third). They have always been low - first one was 75, second was 220 and todays was only 366. I am only 5 weeks, but those are relatively low. I will have a more definitive answer on Monday when I retest, but all i've done this pregnancy (since starting AF) is wait, wait, wait. I am over it. I am old and don't have that kind of patience!

Sending hugs and positive thoughts your way. I think the ability to find out early HCG levels is both a blessing and a curse. I've heard stories of several women with either low numbers or slower doubling times who went on to have no problems - so please, as hard as it is, try not to worry about it too much, and don't give up hope!

Take care,
