Thanks ladies! I wasn't sure. I'm gonna go tomorrow cause they like to allow a week between labs. Hopefully it's down significantly.

Like Nicole said, it supposed to take 3-6 weeks. I had a natural MC and I dont know if the beta thing is different but for me personally because mine were so high, it took 10 weeks to drop. and for some horrible torturing reason, my MW had me going back 3 times a week, for 10 weeks! It was horrible! (I should take back what I said... She had me coming back for a good reason, but it was still pure torture :( But being that you are at 26, it shouldnt take much longer! I would give it another week, possibly 2, and you will be good :)

Sometimes your levels will be back to zero at 2 weeks post m/c, but usually it is more like 3-6 weeks. I think for me it was between 3 and 4 weeks and I totally hated going back every week for b/w because I hated the reminder of my miscarriage and the fact that I used to be pregnant, and I just wanted to have the whole thing finished and
over with.

If your HCG was at 26 this week, then hopefully it will be less than 5 next time, and then you wont have to go back again for repeat blood work anymore.
