So I found out 1 week and 2 days ago I was pregnant. I got pregnant through IUI (I am 37 and my husband is 41, we have been married for 11 1/2 years and trying for 2 before we opted for IUI) and am now unsure of where this is going. My HCG is not increasing like it should be (1st test 63 on 7/18, 2nd test 97 on 7/22 and 3rd test 124 on 7/24). Originally I was told it's a biochemical pregnancy or an ectopic one. But now, since my HCG continues to rise, they want to keep checking that (another test of it tomorrow) and do an ultrasound next week.
Has anyone else has low HCG? I did some reading and I know it's possible to have a healthy baby with low HCG but I also know it should be increasing double or more every few days. I am so many things and so much is frustrating and up in the air. If I got pregnant on my own and didn't need IUI, they wouldn't even be testing this so early and questioning.
I have no symptoms at all other than feeling extremely anxious (which I am trying not to be) and I am out of breath when I walk, which I normally wouldn't be. No cramping, no bleeding, no pain, nothing. I hate not being in control and not knowing what is next. Has anyone been through this? Words of advice?
I think we complicate things when really it's quite simple; find what it is that makes you happy and you're set. Promise.
