<div class="mall_post_body_text">Numbers are only up to 853. (from 607) again up....but the nurse is making it sound like it is looking bad. I have to go in once again tomorrow and stay to talk with the RE. He may or may not do an U/S at that point. Bleh. All is feeling the same as with Tyr...but she said the numbers are rising so poorly that unfortunately the fact that I am feeling the same could mean nothing. Wish me luck for tomorrow.<span style="display:none;"> </span></div>
<div class="mall_post_body_text">That was yesterday at 6wks (going by ovulation date)</div>
<div class="mall_post_body_text"> </div>
<div class="mall_post_body_text">My first reading last Tuesday was 288 then 467 then 494 then 607 and now at 853.</div>
<div class="mall_post_body_text"> </div>
<div class="mall_post_body_text">I think what is making it all worse is the fact that I can't just be happy and celebrate this pregnancy....I spend everyday waiting for results and worrying everytime I pee.  I have had absolutely no cramping or spotting.  I am having all the usual fatigue and afternoon queasiness, but generally feeling great (just like with my son).</div>
<div class="mall_post_body_text"> </div>
<div class="mall_post_body_text">I really hope I will have an u/s tomorrow and maybe that will give a bit more of an answer.  I know that this early and at these levels they may not see much but I am done with having blood every other day.  I am more than happy to go in every 5 days for an u/s. lol sorry just had to whine a bit.</div>

<p>Hi LoneGirl,</p>
<p> </p>
<p>We're here to support you so I'm glad you felt able to come share.</p>
<p> </p>
<p>Check out the site <a href="http://www.misdiagnosedmiscarriage.com/mycommunity/viewtopic.php?p=88633" target="_blank">Misdiagnosed Miscarriages</a> for some good stories of people with low rising hCG. The link I included is to their stories page and if you scroll down there's a section on low rising numbers that will help give you hope.</p>
<p> </p>
<p>I think staying hopeful and positive is the best thing you can do at this point... think happy thoughts for the baby!</p>
<p> </p>
<p>*hugs*</p>

<p>I really hope you get that ultrasound to see what's going on!  Why do they wait so long?  Insurance??</p>

<p>They are waiting as the RE feels he wont see anything at this point that will point him in the right direction.  I just got back from the RE office.  So, no u/s today. I had yet another hcg drawn. I spoke with the Doctor this time. Pretty much what the nurse said is what he said. There are slow risers and there are sloooow risers....I am a sloooow riser. He felt it too early to u/s today and we will do it in 2-4 days. Because I am having no cramping or bleeding that is good. He is just really concerned now. There is a glimmer of hope that it will turn out ok....but only a glimmer. I guess I am following the typical abnormal rise....but he said there is the occassional case of abnormal rise and normal pregnancy. If u/s shows not ectopic then we will just watch and wait.<span style="display:none;"> </span></p>

<p>I am so sorry you are having a hard time. With my now 16 month old, my betas were not going up like they should have also. The doctor was going to do a D&C. Thank Goodness we postponed it until after the holidays! My numbers started to rise then.</p>
<p> </p>
<p>I hope your numbers start to go up better for you.</p>

What is this number thing? I don't understand it. Should I be tracking this and if so, how?</div>
</div>
<br><br><p>It's the HCG levels, pregnancy hormone that goes up every week the baby is developing.  This way the doctor can know if the baby is growing.</p>
<p> </p>
<p>Week one: 0-50</p>
<p>Week two: 50-500</p>
<p>Week three: 100-10,000</p>
<p>Week four: 1,000-30,000</p>
<p>Week five: 3,500-115,000</p>
<p>Week six-eight; 12,000-270,000</p>
<p>Week twelve : 15,000-220,000</p>
