    I am certainly no expert, but when the nurse called with my HCG number, I specifically asked what the lowest number could be and still be a pregnant. She said anything above a 5. So based on my limited knowledge, 14 would definitely be pregnant. I wish you all the best. Please keep us posted.

    At 11 dpo for me my level was 43, then 4 days later my beta was 462. If I were you I would have your doctor check your level again. The rule with the beta levels is that it is supposed to double every two days. So if it drops, or goes up, but not doubled, then there could be a problem. Good luck!

    You may have had some implantation then the embryo stopped developing. Usually called a chemical pregnancy. You might want to have another beta drawn just to be sure of what is going on.
    3 years and 15 medicated cycles(clomid, injections, iui's, ivf's, fet, you name it) and 2 angels before finally getting princess 1 (1999)

    2 injection cycles for princess 2(2002)

    I started spotting on 12 dp retrieval. My hcg level was 7.8 on 14 dp retrieval. It doubled very well for 1 week, after reaching 238 the next test it dropped 96, and after 2 days I got my period and miscarried. Don't know the reason yet. Waiting to talk to my RE next week.
