Hello,

I had my Ec on 06.10 and first blood test on 20.10 which was positive but with a low HCG of 35- had repeat test today and it is now 87.

I am having a scan on 04.11 and was told only to be mildly optimistic and that may periods may start in the meantime- Help!!

I believe i am now at day 15 (post ET) so is this bad?

Bower; I believe that HCG levels are supposed to at least double every 48 to 72 hours. There is a link to HCG levels in early pregnancy on the Bun In The Oven board and from this you can see that levels can vary widely and go on to produce a health baby at the end.
If you want peace of mind, you can always ask them to do another test in a few more days to make sure the levels are rising nicely. Meanwhile, be cautiously optimistic.

Clare; it's worth remembering that some of the home tests are more sensitive than the standard doctors and clinics tests. My first HPT had a squint-and-you-miss-it faint line but the hospital test done the next day was negative. Three days later, my levels had trebled and the HPT was big fat and clear as anything. GIve it a couple more days and test again. Make sure you use the first pee of the day as the concentration will be stronger.

Best of luck to both of you!
