Questions about Possible Miscarriage
Hi! I was told today that I should plan on having a miscarriage at any time. Here is the history of my pregnancy thus far:
The day of my last period was July 31st, and I took a pregnancy test September 6. Three home pregnancy tests confirmed I was pregnant. I was concerned because I have had a constant cramp in my lower abdomen. Particularly my left side. I went to the doctors Sept. 14th and the ultrasound showed an abnormal gestational sac. They checked my Beta HCG level that Tuesday and this Thursday. Tuesday's level was 356 and Thursday's were 370. I was told that these levels should have doubled. I was also told that with an abnormal sac and HCG levels that I was either going to miscarry or need to have a D&C. They also found a cyst on my left ovary that was said to have caused the pain in my left side. I was told that my progesterone levels are great and there is no concern there.
We are scheduled to have another ultrasound Thursday, September 24th. We will also be checking my blood work again to see the levels.
Should I be concerned? How concerned? What are the chances of a healthy normal pregnancy?
