HCG levels

I did a home pregnancy test on 21 January and got a faint positive. Went to get a quantitative HCG the same day. The result was 55. Had it done today and the result was 140.

I spotted from 21 January and had real bleeding from 25 January.

Is the HCG level high enough? Should I worry?

Should I get it tested again?

I am so worried, because I had a miscarriage in December.

You should repeat the test in three days. If the value increases, you are pregnant. Monitoring of the beta HCG is an excellent tool to determine pregnancy.
