Hi Anonymous and welcome to EmpowHER.

There's a wide range of normal hCG levels in pregnancy and one single value doesn't tell you much about the viability of the pregnancy. The HCG level usually rises as pregnancy progresses, and there's a wide range of normal hCG levels in pregnancy. In general, one of the best indications of a healthy pregnancy, in addition to a normal rise of hCG is a good fetal heartbeat after 6-7 weeks.

We wish the best for you and your baby, and hope you will keep us posted.

Hi Pam thanks a lot :)
I was tested again at 5 weeks 5 days and am just waiting for results. Today I have started having period like pain so i am pretty sure that it's another miscarriage unfortunately. If so, this will be my 7th in 6 years after a perfect pregnancy 7 years ago :( it's really hard

Anon - I'm so sorry for what you've been through. I hope you're not having another miscarriage, but if you do I hope you have a good support system in place to help you through this loss. Even an online group can be very helpful when you can talk with others who understand the emotions this brings. Take care, and we'll be wishing all the best for you in the days and weeks ahead. Pam
