    I had my last period on October 13. I noticed a light pink discharge when I wiped on November 5. This only lasted about 2 trips to the bathroom and it never got on a pad. I took a test that same day and it came back positive. I went to the doctor two days later. She did a blood test. It was around 150 hcg and I took another one 2 days later and it had went to 349. She said that indicated I was about 10 days pregnant. I went for my first ultrasound on November 24 because the doctor said I should have been 6 weeks. The ultrasound indicated I was only 4 weeks 5 days. Has this happened to anyone else? Is my baby dead already and I am just going to pass it?

    Hi there

    Welcome to BabyandBump :D

    Your hCG levels looked good doubling (more) in 48 hours. Have they told you they think you will lose your pregnancy? It is hard for me to answer your final question.

    Did they take more bloods for a hCG count the day you had a scan & booked another appoitment for an U/S?

    Hi hun,

    Try not to worry babe, your HCG levels vary quite a bit, it is hard to get an exact idea of how pregnant you are from them, infact is is impossible to do so, but a scan is much more accurate and can tell you how pregnant you are, and this is the dates the doctors will use. So please take no notice of the '10 days pregnant' comment!

    Let us know how you get on! :hugs: x

    hi there as you are only 10 days pregnant its hard for anyone to say wether or not you will lose this pregnancy did you ask was everything ok and normal for the number of weeks you were as i was only 5 weeks at my first scan and there was just a black sac i thought i wasnt pregnant but sonographer said everything was fine. As long as your not bleeding you should be ok if your not happy go back to doctor but im sure all will be well as your only 4 weeks the baby is still very small so it will be hard to find at this point on an ultrasound scan

    hope this makes sense

    I called yesterday about my blood work. My hcg level at 4 weeks 5 days was 8668. The doctor said that is high, but it is good. Could it be twins?

    Finding out how far you are I assumed was the concern - Only another scan can show this. I'm sure you will be fine you may have ovulated later rather than the middle of yout cycle - Taking how far along you are from your last period isn't always accurate x

    :D

    I went to the ER last night for pains in my lower back and at the site of my c-section scar. They did blood work and my hcg came back at over 24000. They did an ultrasound and the sac measurements showed that I was 6 weeks 2 days. They said I should have seen a fetal pole, and they didn't. It was only a sac. They said it is a blighted ovum. This will be my second one. I don't know what to do. I am going to my ob Tuesday for an ultrasound that I have had scheduled forever now. I am praying that something will have changed. I have been crying all day.
