hCG Levels

Three years ago, I started to see a specialist for infertility. I got pregnant on my second round of IUI, only to miscarry at 8 weeks. We found out that I have some sort of anti-killer antibodies or something like that that doesn't recognize the baby as a baby. So for the past few years we did IUI with heprin....to no avail. Most times I would miscarry right at 4 weeks. So fast forward to now where we are now doing IVF and intralipids. So I had my first blood test on Tues and my hCG levels were 16 so my dr. office wanted me to test again on Thursday which I did and my levels were up to 25. My dr still doesn't like that result so I have to test again on Monday. Which I know had I had a 25 on Tues or if Thurs would have been my first test day, they would consider that pregnant. Plus on Mon and Tues I had major cramping but no spotting. Anyone else have this happen, what was the result?

I've had two miscarriages but they didn't monitor HCG in either. I do know they like the numbers to double in two days but I've known women that haven't had that happen and that've gone on to have healthy pregnancies. I hope this is the case for you. This must be very stressful, hugs.
Me (39) and DH (38). 2 m/cs and unexplained IF. DS Connor born 8/22/10 via our 3rd IUI and DS 2 Tyler born 3/25/12, conceived naturally.
