Hello, my name is Monique... I am very early in my pregnancy. Probably about 4-5wks. I was seen in the ER to test my HCG levels and they were at 72. I was told to return to repeat the blood work 48hrs later.. The numbers only increased by 3.. I then returned two days later to repeat the blood work again and on this day it doubled. Although the Nurse doesn't think the pregnancy has failed, she gave me two options.... To either come back again and hopefully the numbers double showing that everything is okay with the pregnancy or to have a D&C done because of the slowly climbing HCG levels they aren't too sure what could be going on in there ... I have decided to follow up with my OB because all of the information I have read, my numbers do not indicated a failed pregnancy... Had the numbers dropped and or I was bleeding or cramping that would be a different story... What do you think? Should I be worried?
