I went for my 2 week followup appointment yesterday BFP 1/17, bleeding started 1/25, has not stopped. My HCG levels 2 weeks ago were in the 400's, then dropped to 300's within 72 hours, and I was bleeding so I figured my body was just doing its' thing. US at that time did not show anything abnormal, however could not visualize a gestational sac.
My OB was wonderful yesterday.
This is my 2nd miscarriage in 3 months, and she was very proactive in wanting to help me make sure my next pregnancy is healthy. She started me on a baby aspirin and some extra folic acid. They also drew my HCG and checked my thyroid.
I got a call this afternoon, after the office had closed. It was my OB telling me my HCG levels were actually up to 1000, which is abnormal considering the circumstances. She believes I have had an incomplete miscarriage or that I could be having an ectopic pregnancy. We will be doing another US Friday to check it out.
I've been bleeding for almost 3 weeks, how does my body not know? I just thought this was almost over and that I could be back on the road of TTC again. Apparently I was wrong.
