Has anyone had a low HCG and been pregnant?

Hi all! I am the process of IFV and just had my beta test on Friday.  Unfortunately my number was only 9.8.  I had another test on Monday and it was 19.  So this is all really really low - I need to be at 25 to be "pregnant", but has anyone had this low of a number and gone on to be pregnant?  I'm really hoping its not a chemical birth.

I'd be more concerned that it is not rising very fast than that is is low.  If the embryo just implanted a couple of days before the beta, it would naturally be low.  Will you have a third blood draw tomorrow?  It might pick up speed, and then you can relax.

ps -- My IVF clinic considers anything over 5 to be pregnant.  It is true that they like to see 25 by day 14, but until you get a drop in number, you are pregnant now.

Thanks Annie.  I will have my blood drawn again on Thursday.  Am really hoping they see a significant increase by then!
