I am new to this community, and very anxious about my early pregnancy. This is my second pregnancy, the first ended in a missed miscarriage at 8 weeks (fetus stopped developing at 6wks).
I discovered that I was pregnant on 10/16, and confirmed the pregnancy with 3 urine tests at home, and then with another one at a doctor's office. My cycle is incredibly long and irregular, so I was unsure of when I may have conceived, but my guess was that I was roughly 4wks along. They did an inter-vaginal u/s and saw nothing but a small cyst on one ovary and a thickened unterine lining. The doctor told me the cyst and thickened lining were normal signs of an early pregnancy, and that it was most likely too early to see anything, but wanted to run blood tests to rule out miscarriage or ectopic.
My first test came back HCG: 451 prog:15. They said the progesterone looked good, but the HCG was lower than they would like. I had my second test roughly 45 hours later, and it came back HCG: 690 prog.: 17. They drew my blood again today (at my request) which is roughly 96 hours after the last sample. I am praying that my numbers have spiked, but I am so nervous. The doctor doesn't seem too concerned, but having read online that levels should be doubling and in the thousands, and with my past miscarriage, I am incredibly anxious and looking for any input from people who may have been through something similar.
I really appreciate any info anyone on here might have given my situation. Thank you in advance.
