Hi I m 6weeks pregnant but dont feel pregnant (have no symptoms), is it normal? Also, how many times should I check my HCG? Checked 3 times and got 720, 2500 and 7400 on days 12, 16 and 19 post embryo transfer (ivf). Are these levels ok? Does it look like a twin pregnancy? Thanks! Lynn

I just had my HCG level checked at 13dpo and they were 14, which the doctor said is extremely low. I will be having them checked again after 48 hours. Has anyone ever had that low of a number and finished the pregnancy or did it end in miscarriage? I just had a miscarriage in my last cycle and concieved again right away which was a surprise. If this ends in miscarriage too it will be my fourth miscarriage and I have two healthy kids.

I have taken a pregnancy test and it came out positive. I went to get my blood checked and the hcg was 50 and that was thursday. That following sunday i went again and it increased to 71.4. I went once again tuesday (today) and it lowered to 70. I was four weeks when i went thursday so in two days i should be five weeks pregnant. They are pushing a miscarriage on me and I am believed otherwise. My mom said they considered me also a threatened miscarriage(which is what the doctors are saying i am having) but of course she had me. The same with my sister
