So, as I've mentioned a couple of times here in the last few days - I'm pregnant. Yay! It's actually very early days for me. My last period was 25th April, but I'm incredibly irregular and ovulated 12-13 days ago at the earliest which puts me at approximately 3 weeks 5 days instead of the 5 weeks 2 days I would be according to my last period. I know I ovulated then because I was using OPKs.
My blood was taken on Thursday and I got the results yesterday - the HCG level was 38. That seems really low, right? I've been getting intermittent back aches like when I get my period, but I've had no spotting or bleeding at all.
I'm worried because it's so early that I'm going to miscarry. I'm 22, this is my first pregnancy. I just have this worried kind of feeling like I'm not allowed to be too excited or anything...how do you stop worrying? I get the new blood count on Monday and it should be higher than 38, right?
Is an HCG count of 38 at 3 to 4 weeks an okay number or is that too low for this far along?
Thanks for any input.
