HCG levels worry

Hello everyone,

Lovely to be here and meet you all and Happy New Year.

We have just done our first IVF cycle.  We transferred 2 embryos of 8 cells and they had started contraction.  I am today 11 days post transfer.  I had my first beta HCG which came back at 5.34.  The OBGYN wants me to retake it in 48 hours whereas the fertility clinic said that we are not oregnant full stop.  We will retake it in 48 hours for sure but what hope do we have?  Has anyone had such low Le eks at that stage?  I want to hold onto hope but need to be realistic too.

You could be pregnant cuz any thing between 0-5 means your not pregnant and anything between 5-25 means you could be pregnant anything over 25 means your pregnant.

The number is low but what is most important is that your level in the next test doubles or more.

Good luck! :)
