Pregnancy can bring a lot of joy, but also many discomforts. Talking about it with others who are pregnant can often be a big relief. On I-am-pregnant, we strive to make this as easy and as much fun as possible.

I have recieved a call from my ob/gyn today and im only sapposed to be 3 or 4 weeks preggo and my levels are at 10,000 is this twins??? Anyone have the same and already know they have twins???
Just to update you all – sadly my little one didn’t make it. I went for scan yesterday and today and both gave the same results: the baby’s heart beat has now stopped. It put up a good fight and its heart kept beating for three weeks after it stopped growing, but it is now at peace. Thank you so much for all your kind comments, support and advice. It has meant so much to me and really helped me through this difficult pregnancy. All my love and very best wishes to you and yours xxx
I had a miscarriage April 14th. I have been going in every two weeks to get my levels checked to be sure they were dropping. On the 15th they were at 95 and today the 27th they were at 219. I am trying to not get excited but do you think this means I am pregnant again. I have a feeling it does.
I went in to the Emerg. room friday because I was feeling very constipated… My OBGYN came to see me and did an ultrasound with a portable machine…he couldnt find a heartbeat so he did a vaginal ultrasound…still no heartbeat. He did blood work and my HcG levels had dropped since they were taken 10 days before this. I was 9 weeks 6 days on Friday and the baby was measuring 9 weeks 1 day…. My OBGYN said you can usually see the heartbeat by 8 weeks and hear it by 10 weeks. I have NO signs of cramping, bleeding or pain at all. He says there is a good chance that I am having a miscarriage and it just hasn’t started with physical symptoms yet. OR I am off with my dates and just unable to see the heartbeat yet. The dip in HcG could be somewhat normal at this stage of pregnancy. I am going back to repeat the HcG test and another ultrasound on Monday. Does anyone think there is any hope….Im a mess…I feel awful!! Has anyone ever had an expierence like this??? Thanks….
Thank-you to everyone who gave me words of advise over the weekend. I went back to the doctor on Monday and my hcg had dropped again to 32 thousdand. the babies heart had probabyl stopped beating about 8 days ago. So they gave me medication to enduce the miscarrage and I go back on Thursday to make sure all the tissue has passed. If not they will do the D&C. Hopefully I have passed all the tissue with the medication!!!
This is such a painful and sad emotional experience. The only good thing is we know we can have children, our beautiful 5 year old is proof of that and we will try again soon!
Mandam, I am so sorry for your loss. I have lost 3 babies in the last year and I know how difficult it is. I hope that you expel everything and dont need a D&C but I have had two D&C’s and have had no problems. I know how painful the medicated miscarriage can be also as I had that before a D&C once. I know it is not fun. You will get thorugh this. Good Luck and let me know if you need anyhting!
So I’m still freaking out because of the phone call from my Dr’s nurse. It took them almost 2 weeks to get my HCG results in. The day I had the blood taken my Dr. thought I was 6 1/2 weeks along, but my levels for that day were only 996. I have no idea if that is good or not and my Dr. can’t see me now until June 29th. When her nurse told me the results on the phone she just hesitated for a sec and said that maybe I wasn’t as far along as they had thought. What are good numbers ladies? I was either 5 – 6 weeks at the time and no earlier or later.
Brie-just got back my HCG results. I went form a 76 to a 145 in just 2-3 days. I’m staying positive!!! Tomorrow is another blood test. Whewww I’ve never been on pins and needles like this in my entire life! (and I got 9 more months to go!!!) 🙂 Thanks again for your words of encouragement!
