Possible miscarriage?
Two embrios were impleanted on the 9th of January with IVF. We got a possible bloodtest, hcg 39, on the 19th, and it doubled to 81 on the 21st. On the 25st I started with a light menstruation, but the hcg levels on that day was 470, and on the 27th 940.
Did I have a miscaariage? Or is there still hope?

Dear Miekie

It appears that the pregnancy is proceeding uneventfully thus far . The light menstruation is probably one of the embryos detaching or aborting but it appears that it has not affected the preganacy or other embryo. An ultra sound scan could be able to clarify this issue and set your mind at rest.
