High HCG, OK Progesterone, Brown spotting 5 wks

I had a miscarriage in May at 6 weeks LMP.  at that time my HCG levels never rose above 116.

3 months later we found out that we're expecting again!  We're thrilled.  

At 14 DPO my HCG levels were 514
At 16 DPO they were 1098

And now at 25 DPO they were 18,808, with Serum Progesterone levels of 16.8

This evening when I was wiping I had a clump of clear mucus tinged with stringy brown.  It wasn't a lot and I haven't noticed anything since.  Dr. says rest this weekend and call if I have any cramping or if blood increases.  He said not to worry about high HCG all that matters is that the levels are doubling.  

However, I'm so scared.  So worried.  They didn't schedule an U/S for another 3 weeks and I can't bare the suspense.  

Should I be worried?  Anyone have any experience with this??

I had a similar situation twice into my pregnancy.  Once was recently at 10 wks.  I also had clear mucus with slight pinkish blood along with cramping so called the doctor and he asked me to come in since I have a history of miscarriages.  I was really scared like you but it was nothing to worry...also doctor said its very normal to have slight brown / pinkish bleeding in your 1st trimester.  Like your doctor said the good thing is your HCG levels are rising!  He also said to take it easy and not to worry too much, as stress can cause other things.  So please take it easy and enjoy your pregnancy.  Good luck!
