Ok so heres the thing ladies. I have been trying TOTW but that doesnt seem to kick so here is my honest delimma and hopefully I can get some feed back.
My period didnt come last mo. and I have all the signs of preg. nipple color change, breast tenderness, nausea, slight cramping, exhaustion. However we're missing one piece to the puzzle. MY HCG levels are not showing on a preg test. Now if you go from time of last period to now you would calculate that I am 5.5 wks along. At what time should the HCGs be strong enough to show? I am worried that maybe something else is wrong with me even though I am healthy. Has this happened to any one else? I went to the dr recently this week and I was told that I would have to come back to meet with a dr and perhaps they would order a blood test. In the mean time I am a nervous wreck. I don't drink or smoke so I wouldn't be putting my next child in any danger, but I am just afraid. 3 of my friends recently found out they were preg all around the same time. The farthest along is 9 wks. 2 have lost their babies one due to tubal and one due to miscarriage and the other one, unfortunately the drs cant find the heart beat the one at 9wks. I have only been preg once and that pregnancy was full term to a healthy baby other than she has not thyroid. Does any one have any advice or words of comfort because I must admit that I feel so alone right now, and scared and confused. I don't know what to do. Also if u could pray for my husband and I. He recently lost his job, found another one but is not getting hrs. We are in a bind, and I am so afraid. I know that God will provide but I still want to know if I am alone.
