Low HCG levels


I am two days late for my period and I tested on a FRER and got a very faint positive. It was hard to see. I went in to get bloodwork done (fertility center because this was an <a href="https://glowing.com/glow-fertility-program">iui</a>) and my hcg was at a 12. They said at this point it doesn’t look good because of how low it is. But they said to just wait and see what the second blood test reveals and then we will go from there. Has anyone else gotten a very low hcg level and been just fine?

My husband and I keep thinking that because I just got my positive test that the hcg hasn’t had a lot of time to get into my system. 😫
