hi ladies,
well, i had an hcg count last monday and wednesday and they were 62 and 84 respectively. About a 2.82% rise. Possibly within normal range depending on when I ovulated and when I implanted, but the rise isn't very good. I have another test on Monday and will get the results on Tuesday. My heart tells me everything is absolutely fine, but everything I am reading on the internet warns me that I'll probably miscarry. I am not spotting and I am not cramping. I do have some abdominal discomfort and either I'm in denial or it's just growing,stretching etc.

Now I'm starting to wish we hadn't told our friends and some of our family. I guess I'm not totally stressing because I believe everything is fine, but those numbers are SOOOOO not good. Any advice? I know my levels were slow rising with my dd too, at 7w3d, I was 55,061 and 62,946 respectively. That is about a 7% rise.

I don't know,I guess if anyone out there feels like praying for a stranger

Hugs, mama! I know everyone here can appreciate the stress you are under. I am in constant fear that I will have to "untell" everyone. But have hope that the numbers are still in the range of normal.

Positive thoughts coming you way!

Sarah, How frustrating. I can kind of relate as I had some bleeding earlier this week. Not knowing is so hard, and then stressing just makes it worse. You are in my thoughts and prayers. And sending you lots of

I'm so sorry you're going through this.

How are you coping with the waiting-and-not-knowing?

I've said some prayers and have convinced myself that everything will be ok. Depending on what the test results come out to be, I may or may not have more testing. Unless there's a chance of tubal/ectopic I will stop testing and just let my body be. I'm game for one more blood test on monday though.
