You’re not going to believe this.

I got a call a few minutes ago from my obstetrician’s office. They want me to come back in today to have another ultrasound because, guess what…My hCG levels from Friday? They were up.

Apr 3 12,163

Apr 5 9,216

Apr 14 19,400

Come on! Are you kidding me?! I feel emotionally adjusted now, for goodness sake. I want to be done with this craziness!

I’m not even going to guess what is going on. But I would really appreciate you praying for me again. I could very well be having a medical procedure today that I’m scared of if there is nothing viable in this crazy body of mine.

  1. My thoughts all along were that your numbers were high for how early along you thought you were. I guessed twin loss, and was happy you didn’t have the d&c right away. I actually expected this result today. I will pray for your health no matter what the outcome today.

    1. Really? The twin theory went out the window for me when the numbers went down. Any idea why they’d drop and then rise? So weird, but I don’t want to Google this. Lol
      The d&c sounds entirely too much like an abortion, so I couldn’t possibly do it unless I KNEW there was no baby. Know what I mean? :(

      1. I figured twin Hcg levels are “usually” higher than singletons, and over 9,000 still seemed pretty high for your possible gestation. If it dropped more, then started gaining again for a single baby I think your level seems appropriate. Of course the ultrasound will be a better indicator of viability. I would say you should see a heartbeat by today. 6 weeks and on is normal for that from my experience.
        I agree with your feelings on the d&c at such an early gestation. Timing is critical so early on, and where you are breastfeeding ovulation could absolutely be off from your normal. In my case the d&c was only an option because I was so far along, and my husband had viewed the ultrasound. 😞 I was led to believe my body failed me, and a d&c was necessary. I probably could have waited…I can’t change the past now though.
        I was surprised your doctor was willing to offer the d&c right away. If you do in fact have a viable pregnancy now, maybe they will be more cautious in the future.
        I have heard of reasons for Hcg to increase without a viable pregnancy, but in my heart I just want to believe you’ve got a fighter in there.😊

    1. Unusual is right! And, as it turns out, there is a very good reason for the strangeness – the cells are abnormal, not regular pregnancy cells. *sigh* I’m having to learn about molar pregnancy now, this is all new to me!
      Thanks for your support. XO

    1. Thank you. XO I was quite pleased with my lack of anxiousness after the initial shock of finding out about the high hCG. Thankfully I didn’t have to wait more than a few hours to be seen at the doctor and get answers. I didn’t LIKE the answers, but at least I’m no longer in the dark. :)
