I went in for my first U/S yesterday at exactly 6 weeks gestation and saw no gestational sac on the monitor. RE told me to stop meds and let nature takes it course. The problem I have with this is that my hcg levels continue to double and I think my hcg was barely at 1,500 yesterday. From what I’ve read, your hcg levels need to be between 1,500 and 2,000 in order to see anything with a transvaginal ultrasound. My hcg levels started low but have consistenly doubled within 48-72 hours as follows:
10/20 - 30 (4w1d)
10/22 - 69 (4w3d)
10/25 - 151 (4w6d)
10/27 - 315 (5w1d)
10/29 - 662 (5w3d)
11/2 - U/S - no gestational sac (6w)
11/3 - 2,080 (6w1d)
I had my hcg tested again today despite RE’s saying not to, but I really wanted to know if it was dropping or even stagnating. If it had done either, I would stop my meds and let nature takes its course, but now I’m even more confused since today it was over 2,000.
Has any ever had a similar experience? Is there any chance for a normal pregnancy or am I just postponing the inevitable by continuing progresterone and estrogen patch?
Any insight is greatly appreciated! No need to sugar coat, looking for realistic info. I’ve already pretty much accepted that this will end in a miscarriage but just want to make sure that I do everything I can so that I never have to look back and regret any decisions I make.
