I thought I'd just let you know that after a certain time HCG levels aren't really the best indicator of viable pregnancies...ultrasound is. HCG is produced in the beginning to support the pregnancy until the placenta takes over, once the placenta is working, HCG isn't a real concern...
Taken from BabyMed:
Blood hCG levels are not very helpful to test for the viability of the pregnancy if the hCG level are above 6,000 and/or after 6-7 weeks of the pregnancy. Instead, to test the health of the pregnancy better, a sonogram should be done to confirm the presence of a fetal heart beat. Once a fetal heart beat is seen, it is not recommended to check the pregnancy viability with hCG levels.
Hope this makes you feel a little better!

it's just the subchorionic hematoma they detected on the ultrasound and nothing affecting the baby itself. Please let us know how you go, I would imagine the doctor will book you in for another ultrasound ASAP to determine how the baby is going.
Best of luck!

Just back from the doctor. As my bleeding is heavier and I now have AF style cramping and lower back ache but getting some nausea and other preg symptoms, the doc thinks threatened miscarriage now so has told me to have some bed rest over the next few days and no scan til Tuesday. She said its too soon after the other one and its better to give it more time which is frustrating as I wanted to know now. She said if it gets worse over the weekend to go to the emergency room instead. So I'm resting but stressing that I don't know any better on what is happening.

How much bleeding are we talking about here if you don't mind me asking?

I've had light spotting since my first scan smeared through my cervical mucus but since my latest scan (no idea why it happens after) I've got much thicker blood. It still seems to be mixed with cervical mucus but now really bright or dark red. Not so much clots but thick & still mostly just when I wipe so not free flowing.
Yet when I get home at night & rest, the bleeding stops til I get active again.
Hope that's not too graphic lol

No not at all lol. It sounds like all could be ok.
With my DS i bleed very early on- i even found a clot, i was terrified and sure i had lost him But i had a scan and some bloods taken a few days later and all was fine. They found a little heartbeat and that i had a subchorionic hemorage (that settled down not long after).
I will be praying this is the case for you and your little one also.

I hope so Laurea. Was you bleeding ongoing for a while before that? I never thought pregnancy would be so scary. Going to be a long 9 months if we get there!

Hey.. Can you take any leave from work at the moment? I'm not talking days.. maybe a week or more if resting seems to do you good when you get it!
I ended up having to make the decision of 'is it more important to work or to get my baby to stay in my uterus for longer?'
i know you have your trip planned for mid this year.. and not sure if you can put things on hold at all but rest as much as you possibly can and i am thinking of you and DH xxxx
