I went to the ER tonight because I was having issues with tachycardia; my heart rate ranged from 125-145 for the past two days. I'm finally on a beta blocker now (Metoprolol). The ER doctor decided to do an hcg test and ultrasound. My hcg is 9925, the ultrasound showed that my EDD is October 19th, I was 5w5d. The ER doctor said there was no fetal pole, I'm a little nervous.. I had bright red bleeding with my daughter, I went to the same ER and the doctor told me she was probably etopic. Clearly they were wrong.

I need to set up an appointment my OB for two days from now.

It's an ER doctor, so it's not his specialty, and it's probably too early to see alot on the u/s. I hope your OB appt. goes well.

I totally agree with Julie! It is still early to see a whole lot on an US just yet. Hopefully your OB will clear this up for you.
Feel better!!!

I hope you feel better and I have to agree with everyone else. 2 days before I had emergency surgery for a ruptured tube, the ER told me I was having a normal m/c. I really lost all confidence in ER Dr's and the technicians. I just hope it was too early and again they have no idea what they are talking about.

Hope things go well. I wouldn't put a lot of weight into what an ER doctor says, they are great with emergencies but pregnancy is not their specialty. I carry Metoprolol for episodes of heart palpitations, my cardiologist says its the safest for pregnancy!

If the ER doc read the ultrasound, I wouldn't worry. They aren't skilled at that.
I took Labetalol last time. I had a consult with a Perinatologist who ok'd Nadalol, but after taking it a couple times, I found that it gave her fetal bradycardia (I had a doppler and I also went to L&D because her heart rate was much lower than usual and she wasn't moving). Labetalol worked so-so, but the baby didn't have anymore bradycardia episodes when I took it. I had another L&D trip as I was having dizzy spells, but it turned out that my heart rate was spiking to the 200's briefly, but once I increase the Labetalol dose I was fine.
I may do some research on Metoprolol (I've taken it before--will have to remember why I switched).
