    So I had a miscarriage last month, and then this month when my period was due and I did not get it I took a home pregnancy test. This came back positive. I have taken a few more and the line does not seem to be getting any darker. I called my doc today and since I miscarried they ordered a beta hcg blood test. I should be 5 weeks today and the number 2077. This seems extremely low to me from what I have been researching. Does anyone know if I could be miscarrying again? I haven't heard back from the doc for them to tell me if its too low, and I'm so worried I am going to have to go through the same thing as I did last month. Someone help!

    Hi,
    That is a great number for 5 weeks pregnancy. I have miscarried twice in the past so I understand your worry about the numbers. But 2,077 is perfect. Also what actually matters is that the numbers should double in 48 hours. The intially numbers do not matter as long as they are very low which yours aren't.

    Good luck

    Thanks for the info! The doctor never called me back about my numbers, so I did not have a repeat in 48 hours. I have an actual appointment this tuesday so I'll see what they say then...I just hate waiting!

    Those numbers sound awesome. According to my LMP I should be 5 weeks but my blood test Monday showed 66 and Weds I was at 102. I think I ovulated late. Doctor said as long as the numbers are rising he's happy.

    I'm on pins and needles. I go back Monday for one more blood draw. It's supposed to be tomorrow but we're going out of town tonight. After our MC last year, I just want to know everything is OK. I feel fine for now and tryingn to stay positive.

    Keep us posted. Good luck!
