    Default Low rising hcg

    I found out I was pregnant last week and saw the doc this past Mon. I had bloods done then and another done yesterday. First one was 1977 (at 5w2d), and yesterday was 2355. My levels aren't doubling but are rising.. Just slower than normal. I have another blood test on Monday but I'm really concerned. My first pregnancy my hcg was 351 at 4w2d and I never had more bloods taken after that and produced a very healthy baby boy. I have pcos and took 8yrs to get first bub, haven't been preventing since he was born 22 months ago and this was a really happy surprise. I thought the second pregnancy I would be less paranoid but I'm finding I'm handling it so much worse. I know the answer is just to relax but I feel crampy and when I turn in bed occasionally get sharp pains on my left side. No bleeding at all tho. I am in a new town with new doctor and I've been told the extra bloods are just how he does things but man I'm freaking out. Never had a mc or chemical preg or ectopic... So scared it will happen. :'(.

    Both were morning (late am- then early am). I dunno I'm just freaking out. I decided to tell everyone anyways. Just hoping for the best.

    I'm going through something similar I also have pcos and found out im pregnant last week. My hcg levels are around 700 mark and at u/s today we could only see a sac no heart beat and I'm measuring at 5 weeks 3 days. I'm quietly freaking out! This will be my second also and I thought I'd stress less 2nd time around. Going back to Dr tomorrow and hopefully my hcg levels are rising. Fx same goes for you and we both continue on to have easy healthy pregnancies!
