Hello, this is my first pregnancy. I had pain and went for an early scan on 22/10. There was an empty gestational sac and another “mass” outside the uterus. The next day I had a laparoscopy and they found the “mass” was a cyst. My HCG levels were 2500 on the 22nd and 3500 on the 24th (48h). I had a second scan yesterday 29th and the gestational sac was still there and they found “low level echoes but no definitive yolk sac or fetal pole”. My HCG levels were 5800 yesterday ( should have been around 14000 if they were doubling). The consultant told me I will probably MC. I’m currently 6 weeks from date of conception. Another scan on Friday but I’m so worried. Any advice or experiences welcome, good or bad news!!

Unfortunately at this point I would say it will be bad news I'm sorry. All my non viable pregnancies have had low rising Hcg- I know doctors say doubling time of 48 hours but actually the only viable pregnancies I've had it's been more like 30 hour doubling or less x

I agree with pp. Sorry you are going through this.
Are they going to do another scan? At 6 weeks you should see a heartbeat so it doesn’t sound like good news.
