and then we worry out of our minds once we do. At least, that's my scenario.

My symptoms are near about gone all of a sudden. I noticed yesterday especially. I have decided to go to the ER and just say whatever I have to get some levels drawn or U/S or whatever. I have to know. I can't not worry and I can't be happy about this baby until I know if he/she is alive and well.

Well, I went to the OB ER and they drew some blood, and after waiting for two hours, they let me know that my hCG was 800. The doc who was on call then did an U/S saying that she didn't really expect to see anything and just noted that my uterine lining was thickening like it was supposed to and that she saw nothing abnormal. My cervix is closed as well. I am going back on Saturday to get another set drawn. I will be at work that day, so Im going in before work and they will call me with the results and also to let me know I can come down for another sonogram. The doc said we might be able to see a sac in a few days. When I mentioned that my symptoms were less than what they were, she dind't seem concerned and said that it wasn't bad, it was lucky. I told her that I was worried because of my prior loss and she said that m/c were usually isolated inicidents (which I guess in MOST cases they are, but I still worry). So...how do I feel? I feel better, but will feel much better when I get those new levels on Saturday.

Oh wow! I hope everything is okay- I know what you mean about being so nervous. Miscarriage takes the innocence out of pregnancy, so it's definately hard to go without worrying!! Let us know how things go!!

Good for you for being proactive! Let us know how sat goes..I know waiting for those comparison numbers is nerve wracking to say the least.

The HCG's don't really tell you anything unless you get 2 done in 48 hrs. At least that's what my midwife told me on two different occasions.

(((hugs))) I haven't stopped worrying since I got my BFP back in November. I had all the bloodwork & ultrasound done and everything looks good, but I still worry.

Hope everything is ok w/ your little one!!

You're right--it's been nothing but worry for me every single time. And I woke up with lessened symptoms this morning and am spending my day moping about it. Hehe.

Glad you got some peace of mind at the ER. For just over 5 weeks, that's a pretty good number, I think, right? Please let us know what you findout from the second draw!!!

Like Norina said, I'm glad that you took charge of your situation. It's just easier when you know something, isn't it?

Good luck Saturday!
