I ovulated on Sept 21 and then 7 days later I had what I thought was my period. Heavy bright red bleeding and cramps, 6 days long. On Oct. 12th I felt really tired and I started spotting small amounts of brown blood, no cramping . On the 13th I took a pregnancy test and it was positive. I took another test on the 14th and it was positive and I was still spotting, so I went into the ER that night (the obgyn couldn't see me until a week later). At the ER they took a blood test and confirmed that I was pregnant and checked my Hcg level, it was 78. Didn't see anything on a transvaginal ultrasound. ER told me I was probably miscarrying and to get another blood test on the 16th. Result was a level of 107, but it was only 37hrs between the two tests. Talked to nurse today at OB's office and they said I am probably miscarrying but to get another blood test in two days. Any possibility that I am not miscarrying?

Also, please don't use the ER for things like that. You were not bleeding to death......
As the op I have to say that gosh this sounds cold hearted. I have never met my ob and I only talked to his receptionist, but my regular doctor (who my husband insisted I call) told me to go to the urgent care, who then sent me on to ER. I have heard of women who have "periods" but still have succesful pregnancies and I wasn't positive spotting small amounts of brown blood with no cramping was a miscarriage. I'm sorry to have wasted your money and I'll keep it in mind that you feel strongly about who should and shouldn't go to ER. $100 copay 9 hrs waiting for my body and what was my baby.
