My hcg level last week was 20.6 and today it is 427. Is that normal?

Thanks Angie, I will go for

Thanks Angie, I will go for another test on Sunday. I spoke to the Doctor and he told me that it doubles every 2 - 3 days, and mine is not low at all.

Hi. I am currently pregnant,

Hi. I am currently pregnant, but we cannot determine how long as i had a miscarriage and DNC on 15th November. I am getting scanned weekly as this is my 7th pregnancy with nil children. I had bHCG on 18th Jan and result was 21591. Scan showed 6wks6days. On 20th Jan we repeated bHCG and it was 24000. Scan on 24th Jan showed correct sac, but no embryo. On Thursday 27th January, embryo was visible and sac showing 8wks1day, but embryo showing size of 6wks. bHCG only showing 34000. Obvoiusly within a week this should be over 100,000. I am waiting for another bHCG tomorrow to determine the life of my child. Has anyone experience this and had a successful birth? this is my 7th pregnancy and don't think i could bear to lose another baby. its strange that the embryo grew and sac, but the bHCG levels aren't progressing as should be. Is it possible to still carry or am i more than likely to lose again? anyone.....thanks.
