Hi I just joined the site tonight. Only found out I'm pregnant last Thursday, went to hospital Saturday with pains and was told I was almost 8 weeks (judging by my last period only) and sent home with a scheduled scan appointment for Wednesday (yesterday). Got there had the scan and they found no sign of a baby.
Was then sent for blood tests to check the level of HCG which was only 237. I have to go back tomorrow to get the levels checked again. Apparently if the levels fall I am miscarrying, if they stay the same I'm having an ectopic and if they rise I have the chance of a normal pregnancy.
Been through this myself. Couldn't find a baby and they called it an unknown location pregnancy. Unfortunately my levels dropped and it was miscarriage. I feel pregnant very quickly again and im now 17weeks. Hope you got some good news. X
Thank you both, that's what they were treating mine as, unknown location. Thankfully I got good news my levels more than doubled in 48 hours so I'm having a scan this coming wednesday. Obviously I cant say I'm out of the woods yet as I'm only early but things are looking on the right track. Thanks for asking.
Yeah my cycles are irregular, I told them all about that and told them I was only very early but they went with 8 weeks until they checked the levels. Levels are now over 1000 so I'm hoping the scan Wednesday will tell me how many weeks I am. Thanks all x
