    Thanks for your concern

    I have been to see a doctor this morning and i have been assured all is ok, and nothing to be worried about. I will be getting the routine bloods done tonight.

    Will keep you posted.

    Well i got my B-HCG results back a few days ago and my levels are at 176. I will be retested in a few days to ensure they are rising as they should be.

    Doctor is not too concerned as long as they rise.

    I have had a light brownish discharge (sorry TMI) but the doctor has also said that thats completely normal as long as its not red blood along with cramping.

    So thats whats happening at the moment. There is no point having an ultrasound as i have been advised that until my levels are near enough to 1000 they won't be able to see anything.

    Did you get your second results back?

    (I really look like a stalker, don't I?! )

    Hey Lambjam,

    Sorry for my late reply, it has been hectic with the Easter weekend

    Well, all was going well, levels were rising as they should have been (doc was testing me every 2nd day).

    Until mid-last week when I started bleeding, quite heavily.

    After yet more blood tests, it was confirmed that my levels were decreasing and that I was miscarrying

    I have now been bleeding for 8 days. As of yesterday my HCG levels were still at 405, so they sure are taking their time going back down.

    Thanks for all your concern, I really do appreciate it.

    In my heart I knew there was something not quite right about this pregnancy. In saying that it still hurts, I just want this all to be over so I can move on.

    I'm so sorry you're going through this. It really sucks

    I'm sure someone has explained the importance of your hCG returning to zero. If it doesn't it most likely means there's a bit of tissue remaining, in which case you might need a D&C. My ob determined that my pregnancy was most likely ectopic and gave me Methotrexate. Whether it was ectopic or not the drug did the trick and I avoided surgery.

    I highly recommend you do something nice for yourself in the next few weeks, a mani/pedi or whatever you enjoy. It's nice to have someone touch you without a needle in their hand!

    Will be thinking of you.

    Thanks Lamjam
    I am still waiting for HCG levels to go back down to zero.

    At the moment i am still bleeding, it has been almost 11 days.

    Today i have started to get some pain, which has been quite bearable throughout this process, however at the moment is quite painful and uncomfortable.

    I am at work at the moment, however had made an appointment to see my dcotor tonight. They mentioned to me at my last appointment on Tuesday that if i was still bleeding by the end of the week they wanted to see me again.

    I just want all this to be over, but its dragging out.
