Not Necessarily: She will be looking both for changes in the ultrasound and in increases in the betaHCG. You don't know anything at this point. I know it is hard to wait, but until you know what the numbers show and what the ultrasound shows you just don't know what is going to happen. I wish you nothing but good thoughts and increasing levels

Good sign: Seeing a heartbeat on ultrasound is certainly encouraging. Miscarriage rates are thought to be in the 5% range once a heartbeat is detected.
