I got the blood work done on Monday... and my doc said the number was low.... Now i am only like 3 weeks.... Is it normal to have a low number? She is testing me again on Monday to see if the number is going up, and to make sure im not pregnant where im not suppose to be ... :-( I'm scared, and worried!



Yesterday my left side was hurting... the type of pain you have if you were walking too much? I use to get it all the time when i didnt drive lol! Before that paid it was just more of a pressure like pain? I dunno lol.. it didnt HURT though, it was irritating.



Has this happened to anyone? I have heard bad things about ectopic pregnancies, and im praying its not one....



Both sides hurt on and off... i know people who had pains when they first got pregnant though, so i am just praying its normal pains.... stretching of the uterus pains!



:( Please help....

Yeah in the end of June/July I had Dull pain during the first month! I found out I was Preggers at 3 1/2 weeks with 1st response.. I've had so many problems I hadn't had a cycyle Since April of this year.. so When I went in to the OB my Levels were low.. they thought I was Further along then what I was according to my LMP... but they thought I had a misscariage or was going to, but they did blood work on a mon I came in again on a weds and the levels were going up fine!! and to top it all off while I was waiting they barley got a spec on the Ultra sound!! I was freaked out!! but when they did the US I was only 5 weeks pregnant!! too soon to see anything!! All is well now so far I'm 4 1/2 months today! having another boy!!

if it was an etopic preganacy it would pretty much hurt all the time. At least it did with mine. Hope all is well

Its pretty early to have pains from your uterus stretching, but it could be cramping from implantation. I wouldn't worry about your low HCG. Mine was also low when I was 4 weeks, they just repeated the test 3 days later to see if it went up, as long as it does, you should be good. I am now almost 13 weeks with my second baby. Good luck!
