I would be so grateful for any and opinions.
I'm pregnant for the first time and it's still early days but I'm not sure about my HCG counts.
My first (exactly a week ago) was 38, 2 days later it was 127 and 5 days after that (today) it was 1233. So all looks good, right?
My GP sent me for an internal ultrasound last Thursday (day of first HCG count when it was 38) and the ultrasound tech said she could see something very small (2.5 mm by 3 mm) but that it was waaay too early to tell what it was. She said she would probably bet that it was a gestational sac.
Today, my GP sent me for another ultrasound (a week after my first one) because he wanted to rule out an ectopic due to very slight tenderness, and the ultrasound tech definitely saw a gestational sac which had grown to 3mm x 4mm but was too early to date as there are no fetal pole markers yet.
My best guess (due to VERY irregular periods and ovulation) is that I'm about 4 weeks and 3 days, but my GP said the first scan was measuring at 5 weeks (in which case, my initial HCg of 38 doesn't match and he thinks I've had a missed miscarriage!) - how does this work if my HCG has climbed to 1233 since then and my gestationalsac has grown?
The beta charts I have looked at suggest an HCG count of 1233 for 4 weeks and 3 days is very high.
Do my HCG counts seem normal for 4 weeks and 3 days? Is it possible the gestational sac seemed bigger because I could be having twins? Is it possible to miscarry and have your gestational sac grow and hcg count rise prolifically?
I'm 22 and not on any fertility treatments by the way. Please, help a confused and worried first time mumma out and I'd be so grateful!
