Sorry if I don't know the abbreviations for posting, I'm new here. My LMP was 10-11-12 my first +HPT was 11-3-12. At 20DPO or 4w5d, I went to the Dr. They did a pelvic and said mu uterus was measuring 12 weeks!! I said "No Way!!" So they did a wand scan (trans vaginal?) and could not see a gestational sac and said it may be too early. So the looked at my ovaries and both ovaries are LOADED WITH TUMORS! They sent me for a quantitave Hcg and at 20DPO/4w5d my level came back at 3,900. Now everything I've read suggests the very high end of normal for a pregnancy further along, which according to the scan and LMP...NOPE. Twins/Multiples, my maternal grandmother had 2 sets of fraternal twins, my mother is a fraternal...So MAYBE? Or Down-syndrome...Who knows?? I'm 35 on my 12th pregnancy (lots of miscarriages) and I'm freaking out. I go back in the morning for 2nd Beta and at 1:30pm for a different scan (level 2?). I'm just wondering if there is hope/has someone else had #s this high or is it the tumors causing it?? I just need some support. I haven't told my husband yet, I was going to surprise him for his birthday on the 29th.
I am on my 9th pregnancy, 6 early losses. My losses were early and had high beta's. Here are the beta levels for this pregnacy, 4 weeks 1546, 4 weeks 2 days 3476, 5 weeks 13859. These were all on the high side.I dont have experience with tumors but there is a chance that your baby is fine....I have had testing done to my age/history and my baby does not have Trisomy 13, 18 or 21 (the most common chromosome defects). Not saying this has been a smooth pregnancy but my lil girl is doing just fine. Good luck!!!

Miracle baby Ella arrived Mar 22, 2013 7 losses at 4 to 7 weeks (feb 05, July 10, Oct 10, April 11, Oct 11 Feb 2012, Jan 2015)
No explanation for losses
Okay, so I had another Beta first thing this morning and it came back at 7,600. So in about 40 hours it almost doubled. I went in at 1pm for another scan that finally picked up a sac but noting else besides what appeared to be fibroids? in my uterus. Also, the scan puts me at 4w6d?? So at 4w4d Hcg @ 3,900 40 hours later it was 7,600. Doesn't that seem high? The doc said we would have to take a "wait and see approach" and just "go on faith for now". He said until he can see the placenta clearly at 13 weeks, he can't say how the tumors will affect the pregnancy. "It depends on the placement of the placenta with the fibroids, IF the tumors/fibroids grow with the pregnancy, and IF the placenta has to compete for blood with the tumors." He measured one of the tumors on one of my ovaries and it was 8.4 cm=3.3 inches!! I freaked! At this point I'm hoping the "tumors" in my uterus are actually more sacs just too small to see this soon before they have to do something drastic and this is my last chance to have kids. Anyone know if these Hcg #s are high and is there a possibility that it is just too soon to see more than one at 4w6d?
