Hello My name is Megan.


We've been trying to conceive our first for a little over 3 years. After our first round of Clomid I got a BFP (2 actually) I went to the dr the following day for bloodwork and it was confirmed. We're thrilled. The nurse told me my levels were 109. Based on the first day of my cycle I would be about 3 weeks along. I've had cramping everyday for about a week; consistent with my period cramping. I'm so nervous our hearts are going to break again. Are my levels ok? Is cramping for this long normal? Since I'm a newby any info or advise would be terrific.

Congrats to you all!

Welcome and congrats! My name is also Meagan

Cramping is completely normal this early in pregnancy and I do not know much about levels but they look great from what I have read!

109 is a good level for just finding out.

as for cramping totally normal. Your body sometimes still thinks its suppose to have a period and well go through the motions. Sometimes women even spot around the time of their period for a few months into pregnancy.

Try to not worry.

Welcome and Congratulations!
109 seems good to me, it is more important to see if your numbers are doubling every 48 hours or so. Are you going for another blood draw?
I am sure everything is great!

I don't know about the levels or what is normal since this is our first that's made it this far. But I've had cramping, spotting and all the other feelings I get right before I start, only it comes then goes (then comes again). It is a little scary since it feels so much like the start of a menstrual cycle but I do get relief hearing so many other say they have the same symptoms. Congrats!

How exciting! Cramping is totally normal, but unnerving. Hang in there!

I agree with what everyone else posted. I can't wait til the second trimester when everything seems a little more secure with our pregnancies

I got the results from my third set of blood. They say everything looks good. HSG 1540. I have my first OB scan on Wednesday. I'm still having cramping. It's making me so nervous.
