yeah, so I just got my results back from my second HCG test and it doesn’t look good :(. On monday my levels were 30,028 and two days later they are only at 35, 228 so they are concerned it might be an indicator of an early mc… I have my U/s today in the afternoon but after this, I’m not feeling too hopeful

mco06: I’ll sorry the news wasn’t good. But don’t lose hope – hcg stops to double once it gets above 6000, so you may be fine. So glad you have an ultrasound later today – I hope your little bean is happy and healthy in there! I’ll be keeping you in my thoughts!

I got my second beta back and it doubled nicely – from 1145 at 16dpo (4 weeks 2 days) to 2876 yesterday ay 18dpo (4 weeks 4 days). Only 4 weeks until my first appointment! 🙂

mco06: Check out this link: http://www.betabase.info/chart/doublingByBeta/15/Single and you’ll see reason to be optimistic – your doubling time of roughly 200 hours looks to be on par for such a high hcg level. Fingers super crossed for you.

I’ve been feeling weird all day..the base of my back hurts a little and yesterday, my left rib hurt a little. I still don’t “feel pregnant” if that even makes sense this is our first baby and I don’t know what to expect!
Anyone care to share their experiences when they were at the 5-6week mark, like I am right now? And so I don’t feel insane? 🙂
PS. I LOVE THIS BOARD..Darling Husband and I are keeping the news under wraps until at least the first OBGYN appt which I’m excited and terrified of in case anything isn’t right, and this forum is a lifesaver since I can’t talk about these things with anyone in real life, cept Darling Husband..but clearly, there’s only so much he can relate haha.

What are you most nervous about? MC, Having to decide to take medication for MS.
What will you miss most while pregnant? Feeling normal I suppose!

I posted on FB earlier, but my appointment today didn’t go so great. I’m grateful I was able to be seen today, and that they were able to get me in for an u/s as well, but I didn’t get much reassurance. I’ve continued to spot/lightly bleed since last night, varying in color from brown to more red. The u/s did show a sac with a small blob that I’m assuming was baby, but I measured almost two weeks behind where we expected. The doctor basically said all we can do is wait it out and hope for the best, since there is no way to stop it if I am in the early stages of miscarriage. She thought the odds were about 50/50. I still don’t have much cramping at all, which makes me feel better, but my lack of other symptoms worries me. She’s supposed to call me back tomorrow with the results of my blood work, and we have a follow up u/s scheduled for next week to see if anything has changed. They did not find the heartbeat, but based on where I was measring (closer to 6 weeks), said it still might be too early. So all in all I’m not feeling too good about things right now, but I’m trying to stay hopeful while also preparing for more bad news.
