Wondering if anyone has a similar story. I am a 43 year old woman that just started doing acupuncture and taking Chinese herbs this month for fertility.
I ovulated on July 4th - (have been taking my temp and did an OPK). On day 8 (July 12) I double over with a very sharp pain on my left ovary area. I thought - maybe this is implantation??
Took a pregnancy test on July 15 and found out we were pregnant.
July 17 - went to Doc, HCG 107, Prog 26
July 19 - HCG 195
July 23 - HCG 257, Progesterone 8
July 25 - HCG 346 - so at this point, Doc is saying I will prob miscarry.
July 27 - HCG 672 - started taking progesterone supplements, but doc still saying I will miscarry
July 30 - HCG 2328!!!!
July 31 - doc did another ultrasound and found a sac in the uterus but no fetal pole or anything yet.
Is it possible that what I felt on July 12th wasn't implantation but a second ovulation?? I know it is EXTREMELY rare, but my body responds very well to medicine and the acupuncture. On the 12th - I also had acupuncture because we didn't know we were pregnant yet and had sex with my hubby!
Could it be that the first pregnancy was just a chemical pregnancy or something that didn't take and the second egg are the numbers that we are seeing now??
