Faint line on pregnancy test. Low HCG level. Can I still have a healthy pregnancy and not miscarry?

I was taking pregnancy tests religiously last week and after spending a small fortune, I finally received an extremely faint line on Friday, November 2nd which would mean to me that my hcg level would be around 25-30 to just be positive (Esp. Since my test on Oct. 31st was negative). I got a blood test done on Nov 8 and my hcg level was 310. The Doctor told me that was lower that they would like to see so I have to go back tomorrow. Do you think I can still have a healthy pregnancy and not miscarry?

Hello, I would be happy to help you with your question.

Yes, I think that no conclusions can be made based on one HCG level. If anything, it seems to correlate with what you are finding on your home test. Do not give up hope and go in for the followup. There is a very good chance that everything will be okay.
