I know I need to speak with my doctor, and the office said he will call me tomorrow... in the meantime, I need to hear from others that know more about hCG levels than me... do you think I should I be legitimately worried right now?
I caught this pregnancy early and went in to the doctor at about 5 weeks. On the ultrasound he did not find the baby, but said it was early and he would do another in a week (which will be this coming Friday). The doctor did not seem worried, and didn't give any indication of a worrisome situation. He had me do bloodwork last Thursday and Saturday (44 hours apart) to make sure that I was progressing. I got the results today: on Thursday at 4 PM they were 172 hCG, and on Saturday at 12 PM they were 192 hCG.
Everyone says the important thing is that the hCG numbers double in 48 hours. Mine are not even close to doubling. What does this indicate??
I had one healthy pregnancy, and haven't had a miscarriage before. Am I miscarrying? Ectopic pregnancy? Really hard to just wait to hear from my doctor tomorrow...
