aaa123 - October 7

Hello, This is my first month TTC and my last period was on August 31st. My next period was due 8 days ago on September 27th. We TTC twice in the middle of September and twice towards the end of September. Since I just started trying I didn't really track ovulation but I would assume that I ovulated in the middle of the month. Anyway all last week after the missed period my HPT were negative. I went to the Dr. this past Friday and the blood test was negative ([5 HCG). Then, 2 days ago on Monday I started spotting and also got a full positive HPT. I wasn't sure if I was pregnant or my period was on its way. So I went back to the Dr. and the HCG was 28 this past Monday. I was told I am most likely going to miscarry with such a low HCG but they checked HCG again today to see the comparison to the 28. Will have the results tomorrow afternoon. Is there any hope at all since I was negative on Friday and 28 on Monday or is it hopeless? Based on my LMP I am 5 weeks so the number is so low but was wondering if I conceived later in the month if maybe the level was normal. I was also just wondering if anyone could tell me what to expect will happen when I miscarry.

Well, it's hard to say... it sound like you could have possibly ovulated late. I would think that if you would have conceived in the middle of the month that blood test would have showed you were prego. So just wait and see what the result shows tomorrow. I personally had 2 early miscarriages. For me, both times i actually had what i though was a period that came on time. Then is stopped like normal, and a few days later i started bleeding. This is how it happened both times. My hcg never got above 60 either time. For me, having a m/c was just like a period, same amount of cramps and bleeding. Are you bleeding alot now or just spotting? I'm keeping my fingers crossed for you! Don't give up hope quite yet.

Thanks so much for your response and what I can expect in a miscarriage. I am not really bleeding, mostly just spotting brown on the toilet paper and once in awhile a brown dot on the liner. I really really hope it is just that i conceived later in the month and I am kicking myself for not noting the exact days I tried. Thanks much for the reply.

It is very likely that you ovulated late or that you implanted late. That would account for the late hcg. My friend had her levels checked around 4 weeks 5 days and they told her that they were low for that time but the levels taken two days late had doubled. That is all that matters. If your numbers double over 48 hours then that is a great indication of a healthy pregnancy! good luck and don't give up hope.

Thanks so much for the words of encouragement. It is helpful as I wait for the results. I think I would be much more hopeful if I didn't have spotting for the past 5 days, that seemed to make the nurse think I would certainly miscarry. But I have my fingers crossed that this will be OK.

Hello So I got my results today, they went from 0 on Friday to 28 on Monday and are 51 as of Wed. The nurse said that with the spotting it is still likely for miscarriage but there is some hope. They would have preferred to see 60 or higher. I have to go back tomorrow and check the levels. I guess all I can do is pray. Anyone think I still have a shot?

aaa123: It ain't over till its over. Don't get discouraged. That nurse is just relaying her opinion and we all have one. I think you still have a shot for sure. Your numbers are increasing. Almost doubling. That is encouraging. Let us know how it goes. Try not to stress too much.

It's definately not over yet! They actually say they want the number to double in 48-72 hours. So being that was 48 hours and almost doubled, don't count yourself out yet! Just be cautious. If the spotting still hasn't turned into full on bleeding that's a good sign. Still keeping my fingers crossed for you! Keep us updated!
