8 week ultrasound

I'm 8 Weeks today..yay! I'm going for an ultrasound tomorrow and I'm so nervous. I had a ton of pretty bad cramping and persistent spotting so they had me go in to get my hormone levels checked and at 7 Weeks my hgc was over 90,000. Which she said was some what high which brought me to my ultrasound appointment. I'm 25 have a 4 year old soon and had a chemical pregnancy a few months ago. It's crazy how thinking you're pregnant for a couple days can make you so sad when it ends. Especially after trying for close to a year. Soooooo, anyway! Just going for the best..looking for words of wisdom about hormone levels, cramping, spotting or whatever

they usually dont go much by hcg levels at 8 weeks but yours are with the healthy range :), which is 7,600 to 230, 000 so good luck for tomorrow and I hope your baby is nice and healthy :)

Haha yikes! Thanks for responding ladies, hopefully I will have good news tomorrow! The cramping and spotting pretty much has stopped this and I'm still sick to my stomach and sore chested so going to keep positive thoughts that all is well.can't believe how much I was put off though about severe cramps everyone acted as if it's normal.

I had cramps & some bleeding when i was early in my pregnancy. & being this is my 1st I am worried about everything! I had tons of questions & read ALOT. My Dr. said the cramps wer becuz my uterus was stretching. Growing pains! But good luck with ur pregnancy :)

Well thank you, that's good to hear. My first pregnancy was so easy.I never spotted I had nothing but mild stretching pains..  But it's good to hear of pregnancies with cramping spotting that go to full term!

Fyi all - saw a perfectly healthy SINGLE 8 week peanut today! Heart beat and all! She said everything looks perfect and bleeding was a fluke most likely since it's resolved as well as cramping. Thanks for listening ladies!
