  • 8 or 800? If it is 8, I think that you had a MC, which would explain the negative pregnancy test

  • I'm sorry hun, it does sound as though the embryo did not take. At 1 1/2 -2 weeks gestational age the HCG should be in the hundreds or low thousands I believe.

  • It does sounds like the embryo did not take. I was told my HCG was abnormally low less than a week after my missed period, and they were almost 800 and still considered abnormally low. I think they have to be 15 or 25 to even be considered positive for pregnancy. I'm sorry this has happened.

  • 8 would mean you either miscarried or it just did not stick. And no HCG isnt hundereds or low thousands til around 5 weeks which would be about 3 weeks gestational age

  • Mine dropped to eight after a miscarriage. I'm sorry for you if this is the case :( It's a painful loss.
