Hey ladies!
I was told I was in the process of m/c at my first ultrasound on January 28th. My RE said my u/s showed i was one week behind and was hopeful. I asked for an hcg test, which came back at 2817, and should have been at least 5000. I stopped taking my progesterone that day. Since then, I have had preggo symptoms. Because of the continued symptoms, I asked for another hcg test for Friday, February 1st, which came back at 2600. I was pissed that it was taking so long to come down. I took a hcg test again this past Friday to check how much my levels had gone down, since I had not had any bleeding.
Here are my levels:
Friday January 25th =2843,
Monday, January 28th=2817,
Friday, February 1st = 2600.
Friday February 8th=3700.
I know it is not a good thing that my level have not good up too much in 2 weeks. I'm just confused on what's going on and mostly will m/c. I have an ultrasound tomorrow at 10:30am to see what's going on but would appreciate some feedback.

 Honey, I just don't know.  I don't want to give you false hope, but them numbers seem odd to me.  I've never seen numbers DROP and then rise.  I have seen them stay the same or only go up in bits and pieces.  Please keep us updated and we will all pray for you.

I don't know, I've never had my numbers done.  I have seen other ladies post theirs.  They do sometimes go down, then up...but only a little, not 1000+, definitly something isn't right.  So with that, the numbers increasing, I'm sure they want to see you back in right?

Jenn- great news!

Nikole- kmfx for you!!! Hoping you get the BFP!

Marissa - great news!!!

Afm- Bittersweet ultrasound. I saw my baby, but it is two weeks behind. Two weeks ago at six weeks there was no baby and i was one week behind. Today I was able to see a flickering heartbeat but could not hear it , which is not a good. Have another ultrasound next Tuesday. My hcg went down to 3300. :( I know it's not a viable pregancy, but it was amazing to get to see my baby's heartbeat, something I did not see with my last two m/c. At this rate, it's going to be a little while before I miscarry, but want to wait before a D&C until I'm 100% sure baby is gone. DR left it up to me if I wanted to take the progesterone, but said it would only prolong the miscarriage. What would you ladies do?
