I just found out I am pregnant with number seven, I have had six MC and I went to the hospital today, one of which made it to almost six months. I am only a day late arms it showed up on a clear blue digital test . The. Doctor said my hcg level was only 17. My LMP was 6/13/12. He says I'm either going to M/C or I'm only two days pregnant. How can this be? Can someone explain? I don't have horrible cramps or any bleeding. Please help. I don't want to go through this again.
Update: as we all know birthright and health departments use the cheapest tests so as I went to birthright last week it did not show up as positive . So a few days later I decided to buy a dollar test and it came back positive . The emergency room last week said my hcg was only 17 and it most likely wouldn't show up on a test yet. Does this indicate my numbers are increasing? Please help
Is it possible you O'd late in your cycle? Your numbers may be increasing, but with just one HCG reading, you can't tell for sure. Have you had your progesterone levels tested? If they are too low, m/c usually result.
I hope you have a good OB/gyn to work with to have a successful pg.
