So after being told that I was “definitely” miscarrying on Thursday morning, my doctor just called and said based on the fact that my levels have jumped from 6 (Thursday afternoon) to 52 (Monday morning) that MAYBE I am pregnant still.
Honeslty, I had really mentally prepared for him to say that levels were back down to zero and this seems like cruel torture to make me have any hope that things are OK. He used the term “cautious optimism”…. Has he ever met a woman trying to conceive?
My biggest fear now is a tubal pregnancy- and starting over the heartache orush is miscarriage again.
Has ANYONE heard of something like this before??

First, I’m sorry you are going through this : (
Second, did they take levels before Thurs. or was that your first reading? If that was your first reading and today’s results jumped up, it sounds promising. Are you going back again this week to get levels rechecked?

@Erindesmar: I’m going back tomorrow for another beta test and a progesterone test. I’m hoping for some difinitive answers either way.
@Running Elley: the doctor said it may have to do with my progesterone levels- you said you use cream to deal with low levels, right?

This happened to me pretty similarly. I ended up having a chemical pregnancy that turned into a partial miscarriage which dragged things out over 2 months. Basically it started out getting a positive hpt. I called my OB and she had me come in that day for a blood test. That test came back negative. I kept getting positive hpt’s, so I told them I wanted a quantitative test (the first blood test was qualitative) and that came back at 10. The next test 3 days later came back at 20. Then I started bleeding and my level came back at 19. I was sure I’d miscarried.
Imagine my surprise when my level jumped up to 72 on my next blood test. It kept doubling every 75 or so hours for a couple weeks and then it practically stopped. Diagnosis was that it started as a chemical, but my body retained something and was tricked into thinking there was a viable baby still which is why the hcg levels started jumping. In the end it took from Dec 7th when the bleeding first started until Jan 24 for it to finally be over with.
I truly hope that yours is different. I know it’s happened before that situations like yours and mine have had fantastic endings, but I also wanted you to know my story, because learning that I HAD miscarried for the 2nd time was exponentially harder then the first time.
Best of luck! I’ll have you in my prayers.

@MRSLMA: I am so sorry you are going through this… All I can say it that I really sympathize… I know the waiting is excruciating. It is so hard not knowing how to feel… hopeful, scared, or sad? 🙁 My limbo last 3 weeks and I remember that you were sweet and supportive to me throughout. It kills me that you have to experience that uncertainty as well. I hope you get an answer today or sometime soon. Please know you are in my thoughts and prayers. Keep us posted!
