What do i think?

I was told that i wasnt able to have children, im only 22. But i found out 3 days ago (8/11/2015) that i was pregnant by using an EPT test, estimated approx 5 weeks. - Yesterday i spent hours in the ER because of bleeding and little pains in my pelvic. Dr told me that i am pregnant just about 4 weeks, my hormone level is 860 but the ultra sound only picked up the sac not the yolk, they do not have a location of the fetus, they dont know if its in the uterus or tubes, and that makes me low risk and have to keep monitoring my hormones. She wants me to be atleast 3000 Beta but having 1300 or 1600 by Friday 8/14 is her goal. My question is, will i be able to jump from 860 to 1300 or 1600 and make it to 3000? will i be able to have this baby and especially healthy? -- im scared & dont know what to think..

I'm sure I've read somewhere that during the first 6-8 weeks of pregnancy, your hormone levels double almost daily. So yes, it would be possible for you to reach that threshold, but there's not really much you can do to make it happen if it's not going to. Must be a really difficult time for you, waiting to find out.

Get lots of rest, put your feet up as much as possible, don't do any strenuous exercise, running or lifting heavy things, drink lots of fluid (not caffeinated drinks) and eat healthy. That's about the best you can do to try and give the best chances of there is a pregnancy still growing.

Will keep my fingers crossed for you!
