I have had two miscarriages, September 2011 at 10 weeks, and February at 5 and 1/2 weeks. I am currently pregnant for the third time, under the care of a fertility specialist. My hcg has been doing some funny stuff. I haven't been able to find any stories quite like mine.
So, on Monday-8/6 I got a positive home test
, I called my doctor and they had me come in that day to take hcg and prog. HCG-68, Prog-16.8 (better than either previous pregnancy). I went back Wednesday to repeat betas. HCG-38
This was exactly what happened with miscarriage #2 . I pulled away, didn't eat dinner, and waited for the bleeding to stat. I felt so awful. My doctor wanted me to come in again Friday to repeat the test to be sure the HCG was almost gone. I almost cancelled my appointment-why do I want to pay to have someone tell me my numbers went down? I was just upset still. Well, I decided that if I hadn't started bleeding, I would go. No blood, not a drop! So, I went in on Friday (yesterday) and my HCG was 465!?! 465 would be right on track if I had never even had a drop! I am trying not to be too hopeful with my past, but I feel very confused. I go in on Monday (8/13) to repeat betas and get an ultrasound. They mentioned a possible etopic pregnancy or blighted ovum...I am just hoping that I can see a perfect gestational sac and maybe even a yolk sac! I will be 5 weeks, 1 day so it's not likely that I'll see a fetal pole.
I would love to hear of someone else with a big drop, then a big rise.
Also, has anyone heard of a fluctuating HCG being related to etopic or bo?
