Worried and Confused!!!

I had my tubes tied last July, I missed my period in may Took a home pregnancy test and it came back positive. I talked to my obgyn and he though I was crazy but went ahead and  sent me to get blood work. The blood work came back that I was pregnant and that the count was around 3000. I had an internal ultrasound which showed nothing. about two weeks later I had more blood work and my count went down to 200. My obgyn said i will just miscarry and he was going to shoot dye into me to check my tubes but i still feel pregnant. I feel little kicks in my lower abdominal. What should I do? Can the baby actually survive?

I would "think" that with your levels dropping that much there is little hope, but it was a maricle you got pregnant in the first place so who knows. You could have your dr do more blood work. I think that if you had a missed miscarraige you still have the pregnancy symptoms and you might have to have a d&c.

My mother had two children before she had her tubes tied somewhere between 1990 and 1993.  In early 1994 she found out she was pregnant with a third.  The doctors insisted it was an ectopic pregnancy and that they should do a D&C.  My dad refused saying they had their dates all wrong.  Well, a little while later the doctors came and apologized to him.  In December of 1994 she gave birth to a healthy baby boy... and my dad got a vasectomy.

Although if the counts are dropping that low it was probably a bad pregnancy and the baby may already be dead.  The symptoms may take a while to disappear but I would do the dye thing.  They might have to fix the tie or something.
