Low HCG..is there any hope?

Post by hopefulinillinois » Thu Jun 05, 2008 12:15 am

Has anyone had their first bloodtest and their hcg come back lower than 14 and still have a successful pregnancy?????? Had my first bloodtest today and my hcg is 13.4 I'm looking desperately for hope!

Well, years ago when I did this I too had a low HCG (17 I believe) and I ended up with a successful pregnancy. I have a beautiful 3 year old daughter to show for it. Just take care of yourself, and try to keep PMA!!!
