I just lost a baby on May 29th. I was 2 1/2 months pregnant. I just found out I was pregnant again September 19th (Friday). I was spotting from that day until Tuesday the 23rd. I am 5 weeks 1 day. I went to the doctor and she said my cervix was closed. I got my HcG levels tested on Monday the 22nd and they were 282. I get tested again on Wednesday the 24th (2 days later) and my levels were 939. What I'm worried about most of all is having a blighted ovum or losing the baby. I was just wondering if anyone else's levels rose like this and they still had a blighted ovum. I'm so scared I'm going to lose the baby too because it's only been 3 months since I lost the last one. Is anyone familiar with blighted ovums? My levels tripled, which I think is a good sign, but I've read that with a blighted ovum your levels also increase. I just need advice before my ultrasound (2 weeks away). Thanks so much.
your cervix is closed and your hcg levles look great. if it were a blight ovum...your levels wouldnt be rising hardly at all. your leves increase but not like they are supposed to. if you have one your levels woudl go from 282 - 435 or so
