I know babe - I feel the same - but then again, nothing has been confirmed for either of us yet and things have to go right sometime, eh. I'm doing a double bluff on myself - I've chilled a lovely bottle of wine in the Fridge for Friday night in case of bad news at my scan - hopefully I wont be able to drink it.
Your numbers are fine!!I cant believe he told you they were slow!! Once you numbers hit 1,200 they only double every 3-4 days. Once they are 6,000 they take longer than 4 days to double!! Yours are doubling well within the normal range!! I cant believe they even took your hcg after it got past 6,000. They shouldnt once your levels reach 6,000 because hcg will start to slow down considerably!! I am sure you baby is fine! An empty sac just means you are probably about 5.5 weeks. Thats usually when only a sac will show up on ultrasound. When are you getting an ultrasound?? Im sure when you go, you will see a nice healthy heartbeat, your hcg is rising perfectly just as it should be. I dont get how some Dr's are clueless as to how hcg really works!! Good Luck!!
I just used a hcg calculator using your #'s. I put the first 5,900 and the last 12,034 and put it was 4 days between the tests and you doubling time is 93.4 hours. So very good. At the point where you are it normally takes longer than 96 hours to rise. So yours is actually faster than normal!
I hope your scan goes okay chick - your hcg numbers look really good!
I know it can be a worrying time, I had to have my hcg tested when I had some initial bleeding early in preg and also had to have a few scans, but a lot can change in a couple of days, try and keep postive.
hi I would just like to say i know wat your goin, i found out 2weeks this monday i was pregnant and i arranged a docs appointment, when i was seen by the doctor she wrked it out for me to b around 8weeks pregnant. she then asked if she cud have a feel off my tummy as i ad been experiencing cramps while she ad a feel of my tummy i had a sharp pain on my right hand side. she then adviced me to go the hosptial to have scans done. i arrived at the hosptial were i ad bloods taken and they tld me i wasnt 8weeks as 2weeks b4 i had a negative test i also ad my tummy again by anuva doc n exprienced a pain that i cudnt describe she then tld me i was being admited and i wud b sent to the ward and scaned the following day. few hrs later they squeezed me in for emeg scan wen i ad the scan done she cudnt c anythink as my bladder was empty as i was tld i cudnt eat or drink as they wasnt sure if my pregnancy was ectopic. i then had to have a scan thru my virgina and she sed she cud c something but wasnt aware of what and i was in the very early stages of pregnancy and they dnt normaly c n e think untill its 6weeks. but they wasnt ruling out an ectopic pregnancy so i ave got to b re scaned the 17th jan. I jus ask docs if they r sure about ur dates if ur periods arent normal and i really hope everythink goes well for urself x
