Hi. I'm 27 years old. I have PCOS/PCOD. For so long I was so scared I couldn't even get pregnant. Last week I noticed that my emotions were hard to control sometimes. My breast were so tender. I just thought I was starting my cycle after not having one at all in almost a year. A couple of weeks ago my doc did a CT and ultrasound of my left ovary and found a solid mass. I began to fear an ectopic pregnancy so I took a HPT and sure enough it was positive. I did five more. all positive. With in 24 hours of the positive HPT, I began spotting so I went to a clinic. The doctor confirmed that I am pregnant. I was so happy, but the the spotting never stopped. I started having uncomfortable cramps, and began seeing small clots. My husband took me to the ER where they said i had a "threating abortion". My beta HCG was 140. He said I was about two weeks pregnant. I've had an ultrasound which showed nothing, of course. My OBGYN did another beta HCG. He said he was looking for a number between 280 and 350. It was only 247. I'm still having cramping and bleeding. I been bleeding for a week now. Lately it tapers off at night, only to return hours after I wake in the morning. They told me they will retest in a week. This is all driving me crazy. Since it is only two weeks into my pregnancy and I'm having so many problems, I really think this pregnancy is doomed. I don't want to wait and get attached just to lose it in a couple of weeks. My husband doesn't understand. He thinks there is hope. He doesn't understand how this hope he wants me to have will be so crushing the longer the miscarriage drags out. Is it possible at two and a half weeks to have light cramping, bleeding, back pain, and a slow gain of HCG and still have a successful pregnancy? I just don't see how it is possible.
Yes, it is possible. My levels rose very slow with my daughter, and she was born perfectly healthy. There is also something called decidual bleeding that happens in some prgys. I bled but cramped very bad along with it and I took another test after the bleeding had stopped and it was neg, so I had a chemical preg a month ago. But my advice would be to take another test when the bleeding stops. I'll be praying that you're little bean is hanging on in there.
