How is the IVF treatment progressing?

I continue to have all the pregnancy symptoms. Two emproys were planted after 5 days of IVF on Dec 18. 10 day HCG was 29, 12 day was 78, 17 day was 703 and 24 day declined to 218. In first ultrasound today,we found only one sac of 5mm. I continue to have very strong feeling that I am preganat with all the symptoms. The next HCG is scheduled for next Tuesday (4 days later).

What do you think is happening and with all the posts that I have read, it seems that it is not over as yet? What do you think? Waiting for your response.
Thanks

Hi Skk, I have gone through your question and understand your concerns. Decreasing trend of hCG values, if all the values are repeated from the same laboratory, is suggestive of non viable pregnancy.It can also be a laboratory or sampling error.Gestational sac of 5 mm with no fetal pole is more suggestive of non viable pregnancy.
I would suggest you to get the hCG levels repeated. If it has still a decreasing trend, then the pregnancy is non viable, and this has to be confirmed by ultrasound.
Hope you found the answer helpful.
Wishing you good health
