HCG doubled from 1400 to 2990 :) Also scan not ectopic!!

Hello everyone, just a little update. I went back to the hospital for my follow up 48 hour HCG blood test and it had more that doubled from 1400 to 2990. They also gave me a scan and little Emby is exactly where he/she should be! I am very relieved as I was really worried I had an ectopic with all the pain I had. I do however have lots of cysts in my ovaries which explains the pain, but this is normal after stimulation. I am going back for 8 week scan in 2 weeks so feel I can finally relax a bit and enjoy the extreme tiredness and nausea that is starting to kick in! Wishing everyone love luck and lots baby dust xxxx

How are you getting on, I was sure I had replied on your latest post but couldn't see that I had. I am sorry you lost little one but over the moon for your little fighter. This actually happened to my Mom when she was carrying me so I am actually the surviving twin xx

It happened to my husbands mum aswell, I feel a little sad but they told us early on what to expect. Obviously we will never forgot and in time will do something special to remember,but it wasn't ment to be and want to put all our positive thoughts into our strong one. Can't believe I will be 10 weeks tomorrow xx

I think they did it for me because I have been quite poorly, but had it done at EPU and not my IVF clinic. Good luck for your scan xxx
