I'm so confused!

I went to the dr and found out I am pregnant. According to my last period I should be about 6 weeks, but my hcg level (80.5) says I am about 1-2 weeks but we haven't had sex in at least 2 weeks so how is this possible?

Also I am having a lot of clear discharge which actually gets my panties pretty wet... This is my 2nd pregnancy, but I don't remember having this with my first. Did anyone else have this? Is it normal?

  • Sperm lives in the vagina for as long as three days. Then it takes time for the fertilized egg to travel and implant in the uterine wall.

  • Welcome to the world of second pregnancy!! (LOL) I had the same thing with my 2nd and it freaked me out!! I actually had to wear pantyliners some days. It only got worse the farther along I got too. (probably didn't make you feel any better there...sorry)

  • I am on my second pregnancy and I get VERY wet a lot and it has been through the whole pregnancy! I didn't have this with the first one either!

  • What is the doc going to do? There is the possibility that your body is either working on a miscarriage which would mean that your levels would be dropping or that maybe you have a blighted ovum (empty sac) But if you are only 1-2 weeks then technically you wouldnt have even conceived yet because that would have been how long it would take after your LMP to ovulate. Maybe he means 1-2 weeks past conception which would be about 3-4 weeks

  • At exactly 4 weeks past my missed period, my hcg was 59 - very low. less than a week later it jumped up to 1341 which was right on target. The doc was very happy. Many women start out with a low number and things go just fine and I hope that's the case for you.

    Yesterday i found out that I lost my baby at 9 weeks - i was 9 1/2 weeks. The best advice I can give you is if your doc hasnt' already ordered it, get a few follow up bloodworks taken to help ease your mind. I hope the best for you and baby!!!
