I just found out that I am 4-6 week pregnant, I had an IUD and got it removed as soon as I found out I was pregnant. I have not miscarried, the baby made it to the uterus. The doctor has been doing blood work, checking my HCG levels. So far they are rising but not very high. I have to go in for more blood work and an ultrasound. I'm a little freaked out because the odds of successful pregnancys seem really low. Has anyone had low levels before, I'm worried its a sign! Any advice would be so helpful!!
Sorry I don't have any advice, but hope it works out for you. I wouldn't worry about the number on your levels, just the fact that they're rising which is good as well as the fact that the baby made it to the uterus. Can I ask what type of IUD you had? I'm only curious because I'm looking to get the Mirena in a few weeks. Good luck again!
I don't have any advice either, but agree that the fact the baby made it to the uterus & your levels are rising is a good thing! I just wanted to offer you and let you know that you & your LO will be in my thoughts and prayers!
Thank you Katie (.:Shortcake:.) for my beautiful siggy!!
A friend of mine got pregnant with Paragaurd and had a full term healthy boy. I do know of a service that can answer A LOT of questions if you want to reach out to them. They are The Texas Pregnancy Riskline at 1 (800) 733-4727. They might be able to help you with some answers that others might not be able to help you with. I know its not much but I do hope it provides some comfort.
I got pregnant with the paragard and had the IUD removed at 12 weeks, my levels had been low and the blood test had me at 6 weeks but when I had the ultrasound he was at 12 weeks (which is what we had thought).
I'm sorry that I don't have any personal advice, but it's good that the baby implanted in the uterus where it's supposed to, because an ectopic pregnancy is one of the complications of an IUD. I would just keep going to the doctor and keeping track of any unusual symptoms you may be having. But again, you are fortunate to have had an intrauterine pregnancy that did not turn out to be ectopic.
