Argh...this is just dragging on and on....

As you may remember, last week I had a tiny bit of spotting and went in for an u/s where a gestational sac was seen but no yolk sac or fetal pole. The same day, I went for a BHCG which came back at a very good level of 13,000 at 6w. On Friday, I went for another one which was 20,000. So, I'm still confused.

As a general rule, HCG should double every 2-3 days in normal pregnancies but, according to my recent research, that is only in 85% of normal pregnancies. And after the numbers hit 6000, it can take more than 4 days for the numbers to double!

I go back for another blood test tomorrow and this is driving me crazy!! I almost wish I had never started this whole process by telling my dr about the spotting. My dr is not positive at all and I am very frustrated. Right now, I just want to know what's going on.

I am so sorry. This must be so frustrating qnd scary.

The truest answer to violence is love. The truest answer to death is life. The only prevention for violence is for the heart to have no violence within it.  We cannot prevent evil through any system devised by mankind. But we can grapple with evil and defeat it, but only with love—real love.

I'm so sorry that you don't have any firm answers. I'm keeping you in my thoughts. Good luck with the test tomorrow.

Tomorrow is my Birthday, so I'll send some of my birthday baby dust your way.

How frustrating...but wouldn't the level go *down* if you were losing the baby? Have you had anymore spotting or cramps? Is your belly swelling?

Sending you much healing, strength, patience and clarity...
