Hcg not doubling every 48 hours in early pregnancy
Hi ladies i was just wondering if anyone has had a slow rising hcg level and gone on to have a H&H 9months, i am just over 4 weeks pregnant and last monday my hcg level was 23, by friday it was 113 and by today (2 days later) it is only 121, My progesterone is at 50. I am really worried that i will miscarry and i am hoping some will be able to share their experiences so i can see what to expect. Your feedback will be much appreciated x
Well the fact that your are rising is still a good sign. The beginning of my pregnancy my levels started off scary low according to my doctor. So I took it easy and rested and drank plenty of water. Around 6 weeks my levels shot up like crazy. I have heard many stories of women who started off real low and then picked up quick. only one bad reading is not sufficient enough for an answer so I do hope that your doctor has ordered anothe test. Also, can you ask for an ultrasound to see if baby is placed in theright area and if he/she is ok?
Sometimes when hcgs do not double or are very slow to rise- it can be an ectopic pregnancy. if you experience pain worse than normal cramps, bleeding- go see doctor. Also sorry if tmi but is you feel extreme pressure in your bottom, shoulder pain, or heavy bleeding go to emergency.
Ectopics are rare so try not to worry. Good luck and remember to rest and hydrate! X.
I have an u/s on the 14th so 9 days to go. I dont have another hcg scheduled either but i may go to the EPU on tuesday to see if my numbers have gone up...my gp recommended this anyway. I am going to rest and drink lots of fluids...Thank you for all your advice, i have mild twinges on both side and no other pain, the bleeding has stopped as i dont have any when i wipe. I am keeping everything crossed. Did you experience this with your current pregnancy or your previous one and was your hcg levels accompanied with any bleeding?
yes i am in the uk...you're in california right? thank you so much for sharing your experience it really gives me hope...i haven't had any bleeding or spotting since this afternoon so im going to drink plenty of fluids and try to relax...x x x
No i dont mind you asking, im in hertfordshire at the moment but i did grow up in london...It can be awesome but it just seems like in California there will be so much things to do...like beaches! I never go to the seaside in england...thats what we call it the sea side...i wish there were more activities to do on the few hot days we get over here...for me its all about work and ttc how far are you into your pregnancy?
14 weeks. I had a loss in January after seeing a heartbeat which was horrendous. Then we decided to wait. Apparently my body had other plans and we got preg again on feb. So now I am 14 weeks. Pregnancy sure does go by so slowly lol. I wish that we all could fastforward and make sure everything goes as planned lol. Enough about me/ how about you? Any news?
I know that the wait is the worst part. During this pregnancy the i went in at approx 4.6 weeks with cramps and the dr said I had ectopic and had to wait a day for surgery. The next day we went in and the fluid in my tube was gone and I has a thickened uterus but no sac or anything. Had to wait a week. Then at 5 weeks 5 days they saw an empty sac. Had to wait longer. A week later finally saw a heartbeat. Then I bled and they four a hemorrhage and low Lying placenta. The hemorrhage is now gone and placenta is hopefully moving up. I tell you I'm going crazy!
wow you got pregnant quickly...im so happy for you...im happy that your pg is going well and youor at 14 weeks..how i wish to be 14 weeks right now...tell me about it pregnancy goes so slowly...each week feels like a lifetime!! nothing has happened as yet...i have a little brown spotting at the moment but not enough to be seen on a pad...i have small twinges under my belly button and my breast tenderness comes and goes im trying to be positive but the 8 hcg increase in two days is really bothering me...i just want it to increase more by double even by tripple even by quadruple, im going to go to the epu and get some bloodwork tomorrow. Please keep your fingers crossed for me i really appreciate you taking the time to respond to my messages...you give me hope..do you remember what your hcg levels were? and how far you was when you took them...? Do you feel different this pregnancy? are you hoping for a girl or a boy? I hope the hemmorhage has gone and the placenta has moved up my fingers are crossed for you!! dont worry about the typing errors i have them too hehe x
