hCG number less than 300?!

So I’m pregnant with my third child (took a pregnancy test yesterday) and when I got the lab results back the hCG number was less than 300. They want a follow up lab in a week but I’ve never dealt with this. For my other pregnancies, I found out I was pregnant two months in. So I’m just hoping that I’m just really early in the pregnancy?! Just feeling a bit anxious about the number being low. Has anyone ever dealt with this and the numbers increase and it’s a normal pregnancy?

    I’m dealing with this right now except my numbers was exactly 300 and I was told because I was bleeding and had pain I might have an ectopic and to go to the ER so I get to the ER and they do the blood test less than 24 hrs later and tell me it was negative I must have had a miscarriage. Anyone else been through this?

    It’s probably because you’re not that far along yet. I’m glad they are having you come back!
