On Monday my levels were 137 at 4 weeks 3 days and 2 days later it had only gone up to 152. Doctor said its not a viable pregnancy. I had some spotting yesterday and a bit of cramping but today there is nothing. The wait is killing me I just want this over with, it's my second m/c in a year.

With levels that low do you think it will happen soon?

Thank you.

No. But it seems I don't need to as light bleeding has started :down:
Thanks for your reply.

The light spotting stopped and it never went red or into a flow.

So I haven't miscarried. I am confused.

I tested with a digital today and it said 2-3 wks pregnant.

Can levels go up even though you have a non viable pregnancy?

I would get a 2nd opinion.

yep get bloods again.

its only a miscarriage if your HCG goes below the lsat test.

A slow rise can be fine and it can mean not viable.

Not viable is very different to a miscarriage and medical intervention may be required so you need to go back to the Dr and insist on another HCG.

Im sorry you are going through this
