I'm supposed to be 5.5 wks pregnant but my hcg is low and not doubling. My doctor wants me to go to the hospital as soon as I have bleeding and/or pain. I dismissed that thinking that of course there will be blood and pain with a miscarriage (I had 2 before having DD). However, I realize now that her fears of me having an ectopic pregnancy are because my hcg is still rising but nowhere near doubling.
I'm torn because I don't want to go to the hospital just for a miscarriage. There are long waits and I find hospitals depressing and unclean for the most part.
Any suggestions on how I can actually tell I may be ectoptic and not just miscarrying?
Eta: I'm having no cramping or spotting at all yet.
