    Unhappy Please be a Sticky bubba.. Pretty please.

    Hello.. For those who don't know me I am almost six weeks pregnant. I have had three miscarriages in the past and I am worried that it is going to happen again. I have been having mu hcg levels monitored and they have been as follows:

    3w 4d: 131
    3w 6d: 345
    5w 0d: 5190
    5w 6d: Results in tomorrow

    Yesterday I was very confident about this pregnancy.. My morning sickness started on monday and yesterday I was queasy all day, had very sore bb's, starving hungry all day.. But this morning when I woke i noticed that my bb's were not even half as sore as they were yesterday. Still tender but not sore. I am a little queasy but I think it is nerves more than m/s. I am definately not hungry like I was. I just have the awful feeling that something is not quite right. I was off like a shot this morning for another blood test so I will find out the results of that tomorrow. I guess what I want to know is if anyone has had something similar happen to them but had a positive outcome? I have had no bleeding or pain. I had slight period type cramps in the beginning when i first found out but nothing since. I thought my hcg levels were quite good and was feeling positive that everything was going to be okay with the pregnancy but now I am not so sure.

    I need all of your sticky vibes as this is a very very much wanted bubba

    Any of your advice would be much appreciated as I am worried out of my mind. I have my forms for my u/s but was planning on going at around 8 weeks so they had a better chance of catching a heartbeat. I will head off to the Dr for another b/t on Sat morning and i guess will know nothing for sure until monday. Please keep your fingers crossed for me!

    Thanks TellyTubby.

    Got the test results for yesterdays hcg

    5w 6d: 19000

    I think that is good news... I don't really know.. I worked out that they took 76 hours to double. From what i have read, when the levels reach a certain number they take longer to double. Has this happened to anyone else?

    Thanks for your sticky vibes everyone x x

    Hi Kym, i'm in pretty much the same boat and found this which made me feel better...

    Look most closely at progression: during the huge majority of early pregnancies (80-90%), the level will double every couple of days, or 72 hours. As your pregnancy progresses, levels rise and that doubling time increases. The expected doubling time for HCG levels:

    ? Under 1200 mIU/ml: 48-72 hours.
    ? Between 1200 to 6000 mIU/ml: 72-96 hours.
    ? Over 6000 mIU/ml: more than 96 hours

    HCG levels rise during the first 8 to 10 weeks of pregnancy then decline slowly for the second and third trimesters.

    Sending sticky vibes your way!!
