Too early to tell: Too early to tell. Need repeat hcg few times. The number should double every two days. Bottom line is not until 9 weeks from 28day cycle to be sure Most miscarriage happen before 9 weeks. Good luck. Should be on prenatal vitamin now. And beware of cold flu and other environmental toxins exposure
