I have had a crazy past week! We weren't trying just yet for baby #2 but we weren't preventing. It all started when I had a light af that was very unsuall from November 22-24. Afterward I continued a very light brown spotting occasional and had some other unusual symptoms. I had some internet strip tests and I decided to just take one to rule it out. And BAM second line right away.. very very faint but there.
I took many more tests and even some first response and all came back lwith the same light line. This was a week after the unusual "af". So I was scared and went into the walk in clinic. Their office test came back negative but doctor ordered blood work. The blood test came back positive and he sent the same blood for beta. The next day he called and said beta was 17 and prepared us for the worst. That we had lost the baby or it was a tubal. So I immediately went in for another beta. They called that night to say "Good news its 29!!" and said that they think its just really early and that its alright. Which was crazy after crying all day and thinking that we had lost our baby.What a rollercoaster!! I go in tomorrow for another beta and go in to see my pcp. I am really nervous and I can't get excited about this pregnancy. I know that since the numbers are doubling that is a good sign but they seem low. I go from one minute excited and hopeful to completely heartbroken the next.
I have no idea when I ovulated and they are assuming the bleeding was implantation. The last af before that was october 25th. I have only had 3 cycles pp and I am breastfeeding my 15 month old.
I take a test everyday and the lines although are a tad darker than the intial tests are still not the beautiful dark ones I would expect by now. The only symptoms I have are fatigue (and that could be from going off caffiene) and maybe a tiny bit of food adversions.
Anyone have any thoughts, advice, stories with similar situations? I am a ocd google addict and everything on low numbers is discouraging. TIA!
