Do the usn: There is a point where HCG does not go up any more and actually starts to go down. The ultrasound will be definitive at 7 weeks as to whether you have a good pregnancy. I think you should have stopped doing any HCG after it was 65549 and just done the ultrasound.

It is possible...: But the us will tell the full truth. Good luck to you! if you do miscarry, make sure your doc runs the mthfr 677 ; 1298 genotypes, and get treated with l-methylfolate, methyl cobalamin, and p5p....Life changing! 84% of the population has this mutation, and it effects range from neural tube defects to add, autism, depression, anxiety, obesity, diabetes, elevated homocysteine levels, dementia etc.
