I recently found out I was pregnant which is amazing, as we have been ttc for the past 3 years. I am unsure of how far along I am, but i'm pretty sure I'm only 3-4 weeks. I found out I was pregnant 2 weeks ago, and it was confirmed by a blood test and urine. I had brown discharge that last a week and chalked it up to implantation bleeding. During that time I made several trips to the ER and have been being followed close by OB due to my history. 1 live birth, 2 miscarries and 1 ruptured ectopic which took my right fallopian tube away. While I was having the spotting and had cramps, and I was also cramping. Due to my history I took no chances! I've been getting my blood drawn every 2-3 days with the levels being 975,1534,800, and back up to 1300. The doctor is concerned that my levels haven't doubled, but I've seen quite a few posts of having a healthy pregnancy with slow rising HCG levels. My question is...does anyone know what this could be stemming from? I was told to prepare to miscarry when my HCG dropped, but when it rose the doctor was confused. They still can't see anything on the U/S and I'm sure it's due to me not being far along. I've stopped bleeding and have no more cramping. I have symptoms to include nausea, fatigue and insomnia. I definitely feel pregnant, and am hoping for the best! Hopefully someone has a success story or can shed some light on the situation. TIA!
