I have been bleeding lightly on and off since Sunday and had bad cramps on Sunday too, I had a scan out weds and they couldn't see anything so just thought it was too early to see anything and said they'd have to re-scan in 7-10 days. But I also had to do a blood test and levels read 62 (lady rang me with results today) and she said they think I may have miscarried, and to go back tomorrow.

Has anyone had anything similar? I don't know if it's just their theory or could I just be only a few weeks gone as the test they done was still positive on weds please help! Xx

That's around the level you should get when you first miss a period (4 weeks pregnant) so if you first had a positive test a week ago and think you are 5 weeks then it doesn't sound good. HCG levels should double every 48 hrs in early pregnancy. Pregnancy tests have different sensitivities - the early ones detect a level of 10, so until you drop below that you would still test positive.
I guess the test today will tell you, if it has doubled then you may be earlier than you think, if it has dropped then it's bad news.
I'm sorry sad

That's what I was hoping that maybe I had conceived earlier than the predicted dates, but we will see smile just not enjoying this waiting game! But thank you x

Sorry to hijack but just wanted to say to bakintins thank you for your honesty. I got so much false hope when my pregnancy was failing that it was devastating when it all finally ended. It would have been much better if I had thought about things realistically rather than convincing myself I would be in the 0.00001% that everything would turn out fine despite falling hcg levels and no progress on scan. Thinking of you op at this difficult time, this time of year should be a happy occasion.

Sorry snook that sounded really negative! I didn't mean it to, I hope your dates are wrong and it's just too weeny to be making its mark yet. I would say hope for the best and prepare for the worst. All I meant is that I let myself get my hopes up when if I had looked at the bigger picture I would have been more realistic and maybe less hurt smile

Oh I didn't see it that way to be honest I needed it in black and white so thank you! I'm just waiting for final blood results this morning, but have been bleeding a lot and been having cramps since yesterday so I know the outcome. It's just one of those things would just like this to be over now though sad been bleeding on and off for a week tomorrow sad x

thank you, yes i am coping well im back to normal and feel myself again now. in a funny sorry of way im glad we didnt see anything on the scan as we didnt have an attachment if that makes sense. but i saw the doctor this week and hes assured me im at no higher risk of this happening again and we can start again when ive had my next period. If i can wait that long :S but ive realized unfortunately it is just nature and sometimes in life we have no control over some things. x
