It's crummy when the doc doesn't tell you anything. That's how it was with my last m/c. My levels had dropped and they told me that was it, I'd m/c and didn't need to come back unless I had problems. I hadn't had any bleeding at all and no pain up til then. About a week or so later, I started bleeding, but I never did have any pain. I took pregnancy tests until mine came back negative just to make sure my hcg had gone back to 0.
I like your suggestion of the pregnancy tests, if she can wait like that. If she wants to know for sure tho then I'd probably call another doc or go to the hsp like what was mentioned above. She can even go to one of those walk in clinics that people go to for school physicals and such and get them to do bloodwork for her.
go to the hospital and they will do all the tests they need to, and you guys will get a for sure answer,
i though i was farther alone then what the dr said i was i went in on Oct 5, 2010 dr said i was 5wks 6day and had a heart rate of 145bpm i went back on oct 19, 2010 which is 2 week later and they said i was only 6wks 3 day and the heart rate was down to 80bpm this is my first pergnacy does this mean i will miscarry i am so scared and worried i just dont know what to think..
As long as that heartbeat keeps going you should be ok. Sometimes the dates are really off at the start. I had different HCG reading up untill 12 weeks. It freaked me right out nothing made sense! The heart rate is a bit low but there is still one so keep thinking positive.
At 8 weeks you should be able to see something on the U/S and then maybe they will have more info for you. But yeah, it's a crazy waiting game, but try not to stress. Stressing out is not good for the baby. No matter what happens it is nothing you can control if the pregnancy does abort. Do what you can, eat well, try to think positive. Maybe it will work out fine.
Good luck to you I hope it does!
