Very Worried

TraceyH - April 27

Hi, According to my LMP I should be 7 weeks and 4 days pregnant. At 5 weeks and 5 days I noticed occasionally (not every time) that I did a wee that there was a small amount of brown staining on the toilet paper. This is still continuing to date. I went to my doctor at 6 weeks and 1 day and he was concerned about this discharge. He sent me for a HCG test and also an ultrasound. The HCG test showed that I had levels of 12,264 but the ultrasound showed a embryonic sack and a yolk sac but no fetal heart. After the ultrasound my doctor sent me for a further blood test (2 days after my previous one) which showed levels of 16,900. The discharge has continued, I have had no red blood or cramping but am still extremely worried about whether everything is okay. Would you expect to definitely see a heart beat at 6 weeks 2 days and can I experience this discharge and still go on to have a normal pregnancy? I am very worried however all my doctor says is that he wants to repeat the ultrasound in two weeks but that the increase in my HCG is encouraging.

I wouldn't expect to see a heartbeat @ only 6 weeks . . . they saw mine (first u/s) @ 7 weeks, 5 days . . . so I wouldn't worry at all. My first baby, they didn't see a heartbeat until after 8 weeks. I know it's hard, but try to stay calm . . . stressing/worrying won't help anyone. Just try to trust that God knows what He's doing.
