Okay, so after being scared about bleeding I was having, the ultrasound looked fine. We even heard the heartbeat!

But I had blood taken Tuesday and Thursday to check my levels, and although they did increase, they didn't double. So now I'm worried all over again.

Has anyone had this happen to them and still went on to have a healthy pregnancy??

I would really appreciate anyone's opinion

I did. With my dd, my levels went from 10,000+ to 13,000+ after 2 days. I remember starting to ball in the doctors office (having had miscarried my first to blighted ovum) and he was very reassuring saying that it was a good sign that the numbers were going up. He scheduled me for an ultrasound and we heard the heartbeat and she's now 3.5.

I want to say I was about 9 weeks when I took the test but I might be wrong. I know I took the test in mid-late january and was due sept. 10 (very close to your dates!)

Feel free to post your numbers and how far along you were when you had the tests.

I've also heard that your chance of miscarriage goes down to 5% once you've heard the heartbeat...very reassuring to me!
