My LMP was July 17, 2009. I went for an appointment September 1, 2009 and was given a vaginal ultrasound. I was believed to have been 6 weeks 3 days pregnant. The ultrasound showed me more around 5 weeks 4 days. There is a gestational sac in the uterus as it should be, but there was no sign of yolk sac or fetal pole.
My progesterone was 7.1 and I was placed on prometrium. Within 48 hours my progesterone had went up to 17.2 which is great! My hcg levels are my source of worry. They were 9,000 on Sept 1st and had only risen to 13,004 by Sept 3rd. This is only 48 hours and I was under the impression it could take up to 72 or 96 hours to double even, but my doctor seems a bit worried that this could be a fork in the road so to say and either thrive from here on, or be a sign of possible impending miscarriage. I was not too worried about the ultrasound at first. I only thought perhaps it was too soon. But now that these hcg levels are thrown into the mix.. I am one hot mess of stress and worried I am going to miscarry.
Any logical, insightful help or advice would be extremely appreciated. (good or bad)
Thanks so much.
