Low hgc at 9 weeks 4 days

So I found out I was pregnant last week, from my calculations I'm 9 weeks 5 days today! I know this because DH and I only had sex the previous month! We have had other means of fun,but no sex. Yesterday I started to have a brown blood tinged mucus and waves of acheyness in abdomen they have been present even before I knew (about 6 weeks) they're very dull and don't concern me what so ever as I had them previously. I went to the hospital where I waited for 2 1/2 hours to have a pregnancy test via urine and blood (hgc count!)I was not scanned due to the hospital ultrasound department being closed til Monday! We decided to go home to collect our other children as the nurse said they would call me back with the hcg results. The doctor rang me and said I did have pregnancy hormone in my blood which is at 176! Which suggests the furthest along I am is 4 to 5 weeks! (Impossible unless DH has super sperm which hangs around for a month, or the very unlikely chance that he may have had a bit of that clear stuff before they actually cum and has gotten it near me with his hands?! Not holding my breath tho) I am terrified! I have practically slept all day to avoid overthinking it and when I am awake I am googling it and searching forums! I have had no more blood except for the two times I wiped yesterday and cramps are gone completely! From what I've found it's either a four week/ five week pregnancy, beginning of a loss, ep topic or belighted ovum( I think that's its name). I think because I am so confident in when I conceived, is what is making me petrified! The only other thing that points me towards getting pregnant with the foreplay is I had a period (doctor says implantation bleed) and negative on which would have been cycle day 1, in October. I had missed period this month. The hospital doctors obviously don't know when DH and I had sex last, even though I have told them till I'm blue in the face; they still think it's a pregnancy not as far along as it could be! Better than what it could be I'm even hoping for this even though I know the chances are very slim! He also said we can't really tell how far I am by these numbers, to add to my confusion even more, it's the amount the hgc is doubling every 2--3 days! So ring the early pregnancy unit on Monday and book in for a scan! The nurse advised to go back for another blood test on Sunday, if the levels were low; but he's suggested the scan! How do they expect women in these situations to hold on for so long! I know that nothing will change if it's bad news it'll be bad news today and Monday and the same if it's good! It's just the worrying, not knowing and waiting! I am going out of my mind! If I had never had gone to hospital as the blood was brown and usually they tell you not to worry I wouldn't even know my hgc levels so wouldn't be feeling all these emotions! I went to ease my worries and find out why this was happening and now I have no answers and even more worrying! I've had two healthy pregnancies before but have never known my hgc at this stage with either so I don't know if I naturally produce very low hgc or what! Has any one gone through this and there has been light at the end of the tunnel or am I heading for heartbreak

Re: Low hgc at 9 weeks 4 days

  • When I say I've had cramps for 6 weeks this has been the same a day with no cramps and few days later some slight cramping. Which the pattern still.
  • Wow, that was a lot of one paragraph. I have a few questions:
    1. You mention a period and a negative test in October, but your doctor thinks it was implantation bleeding. Was there enough blood to fill a tampon or pad? Was it red? Did it last more than one day? If yes, then it was a period and you're only 4-6 weeks.
    2. When you talk about possibly getting pregnant without sex, anytime the penis goes in the vagina unprotected, you can get pregnant. Even without full penetration. There is some truth to pre-cum on hands then foreplay leading to pregnancy too, though rare.
    3. An ectopic pregnancy is usually accompanied with lots of pain. If you're having severe cramps, get the scan ASAP.

    Good luck.

  • That hcg level is not consistent with a 9 week pregnancy. Ectopics normally cause significant one sided pain - not mild cramps. Hope you get some answers Monday.

  • At 14 days after my hcg was 144
    At 16 days it was 343

    I had a scare and at about 8 weeks so they tested my hcg again it was 78000 and 3 days later 85000

  • I posted more than that but it doesn't let me post in paragraphs! My levels are decreasing, I've been told I am heading for miscarriage. My levels aren't going down as quickly as they should so they will be monitoring me to keep an eye out to make sure this isn't ectopic, I've had no scans just bloods! Which is frustrating! As ectopic is very dangerous but still am waiting another two days to find out! I suppose I haven't had severe cramps, just mild period like cramps and only bleeding in the form of brown mucus! Which doesn't alarm them at the moment! It is just a waiting game of when baby will pass

    I'm so sorry for your loss. If you're wanting to make it so that this board doesn't come up as your home board, go to the "..." tab at the bottom, click on "my account" and change your "status" from pregnant to TTC or whatever applies at the moment. You can do the same thing when you get pregnant again to get your new BMB saved as your main. I hope that helps, sorry if I misunderstood.
    Yes that's what I wanted thankyou I am still getting emails re due dates and upcoming things to do for my gestation which isn't really what I want to be seeing at the moment and thankyou everyone for your kind words good luck to all who arr expecting and I wish you all happy healthy pregnancies and beautiful bundles of joy, good bye for now x
