The doc should: Draw a Progesterone level with the beta because a high one is reassuring a a low one under 5 is not, 5-10 is worrisome, over 10 is normal, over 20 is favorable and repeat the beta in 3 days should double every 3 days if u are preg now the blighted ovum on 8/16 has nothing to do with this pregnancy.
