  • Are they asking you to go back and take another one in 2 days? If the number doubles your still pregnant if it drops or stays the same your not.

  • I had an ectopic. My level at what we thought was six weeks was only 185. It burst that night and I had emergency surgery to remove the pregnancy and my tube. I just say watch that pinch you are feeling. All day long I was having just a bit of an ache, I told myself I was just constipated. Then boom, the worst pain I'd ever felt in my life. If it hurts, go to the emergency room.
