My HCG levels are not increasing at 5weeks any hope??

For those of you who were following up on my story, I was tested positive for pregnancy and had the 1st 3 Beta increasing from 70 to 130 to 332. My Dr comgratulated me and told me to come for my 1st u/s,which I did but they found nothing at all, not in the uterus and not in the tubes. Also I was experiencing cramps and spotting and even heavy bleeding for 2 hrs that stopped on its own. I did my 4th Beta and it was 467, so my Dr said this is not a viable pregnancy and I need to do a laproscopy right away. I was not comfortable at all wth his decision. So I had a 2nd opinion, the other Dr did again an u/s and found SOMETHING in my uterus, so he said no way you have ectopic and I don't need laproscopy. But the sac is very little and since ny Beta increased to 667 only he said better to wait one more week and then decide, most probbaly I will end up having  a natural miscarriage. I found by mistake a vey interesting website called:www.misdiagnosedmiscarriage.com, it was very helpful as I saw a similar case like mine where the HCG jumped to 2,000 and she had a successful pregnancy.
I am not giving myself much hope here, I am expecting the worse but hoping for the best but at least I don't want to accept terminating my pregnancy before I am sure this is the best decision.
Has anyone started with low rising HCG similar to mine then had a successful pregnancy or do you think I will end up having a D&C? I am so confused now cause I can't consider myself pregnant and yet there is something inside..?? I am ready to hear negative and positive stories if anyone can help. Thanks

I am glad you got a second a opinion, if the doctor found something that is a good sign.  I would have them continue to monitor you until you fully start bleeding, hopefully you will not and the little bean is now nice and snug!!!

I just got a BFP this morning and I am having some very light spotting sometimes it is not even there. I am super nervous being that I miscarried in October 06. I got pregnant the next year and had my beautiful angel Cooper this summer on June 6th, but he returned to heaven on July 23rd at 7wks. I just feel like God owes me this.  

I hope everything turns out great for the both of us!! Please keep me posted!!!

Sorry to hear about your loss. And thanks for replying back. I am realistic about my situation. I am not in denial but I just want to make sure I did my best before any decison is made and I still want to believe miracles can happen. I hope we will be sharing good news together but if I don't then it's God will and I will accept it and move on.
All the luck and keep me posted.

I should be around 6weeks and 5 days maybe. This whole pregnancy was very confusing, first the 2ww,then the Beta hell and now the u/s to see if I will be having a miscarriage or my numbers could just rise dramatically!

last month, my first beta 44, second 775 at 1 week apart, and then schedule 3 weeks later for U/S.  However, 3 days after second beta, I got bleeding and so much pain at lower ab, and end up to ER.  They could not find any thing inside my uterus and beta came back 2900, next day 3500, next day 3750, 2 days later 4700.  They sent me home, said would not see anything because beta below 6000.  Is it true?  I got second/third/forth opion, all said the same.  However, I'm still bleeding, pain about a week, then I passed out the tissue, 2 days later I believe I passed out the bean.  Now my beta drop 2500, a week later 185.
If your beta doesnot drop, just hang in there and wait.  You wont see anything if your beta too low.
I hope everything turn out great.

You are still early. You have to wait for the beta to be at least 2000 to see something more accurate on the sono.You still have hope.Keep it up.

i have been on missedmiscarriage.com also, and i was hopeful, but not one of the lucky ones.  there is always hope, always, you never know what's going to happen.

but..... i think you will have a natural miscarriage.  i remember when your numbers went from 77 to 70 and then back up it wasn't good.  you won't see anything on u/s until 2000 but you should be 2000 by now.  my last miscarriage was similar and then there was something seen in the sac by week 8 but the fact that it took so long was not good.  you should be ready for that.  

however, you should wait -- no need to rush -- for me, i had to start bleeding to be sure the dr. was right, even though it didn't happen until 13 weeks.  i wanted every chance, and there is no reason not to give yourself that if you want to.  

as to being pregnant -- this may not work out -- but you ARE pregnant.  enjoy this short sweet time with your little one.  :) i am sending happy thoughts.

Yes you are right Alikat, turns out that just today my Beta levels started dropping down,which in a way I am relieved cause I was not excpecting much from this pregnancy but I was more worried how it would end. I really didn't want to do a laproscopy or D&C unless required. My new Dr confirmed to me today that I will have a natural miscarriage and should expect my period soon within 2 weeks. He advised me to wait 1 normal cycle and then try again for IVF. I am looking forward for my next round of IVF and hopefully I will have a supportive group like you ladies cause rally without you all I would have gone crazy . To all of you ladies who are on the 2ww I wish you all the luck and all the baby dust to you. To all of you ladies who have had confirmed pregnancy I wish you a happy 9 months and to all of you ladies whose story is similar to mine, who did not have much luck, let's not give up quickly and let's meet again in our next IVF!!

I have had 2 miscarriages and one live birth. I am pregnant again at 5 weeks 1 day. I first found out that I was pregnant at 3 weeks 5 days. My beta that day was 78, then it went to 184, then to 457 then to 897 and then to 2276 all 2 days apart.. I am just so worried.. I have no pregnancy symptoms and had a ultrasound yesterday and  it took her while to see something.. I just want this to work out... My beta say everything looks good.. I went for another beta today... Is anyone is the same boat as me.. NO symptoms..etc...
