I don't know if levels are different in the states from here but is 99 hcg low for 11dpo? Finally had a dr call me back with my blood work and I'm freaking out a little as she says 99 is low depending on where you are in the pregnancy and wants me to retest to see if its going up.... She wasn't very clear and I'm not sure if she got that I was 11dpo and very early in the pregnancy.... I was actually feeling pretty good about levels as it was the first time a pee test at the dr was positive and I didn't have to get a blood test to confirm that yes I was pregnant... But I had a miscarriage in Feb so I'm freaking out a bit now....

An OB once told me that an HCG of 100 is what they expect to see at 14dpo, so using that framework, 99 at 11dpo seems just fine. I personally find that early betas do nothing but cause me to worry. Serial betas don't provide much useable info considering that, at this early stage of pregnancy, nature just has to take it's course. If I were you, I wouldn't get another beta done. Congrats on your pregnancy!

Congratulations on your pregnancy! My doctor considered a 50 positive. 11DPO is still rather early. 99 sounds like a perfectly great number to me. They do usually want to see the number doubling at a good rate. I'm sorry about your miscarriage. I had one and then had a healthy pregnancy the next time. Try not to worry too much! There doesn't seem to be any reason to believe there is a problem right now.
