I am nervous even writing this blog post, because I don’t want to jinx myself or our chances. . . We got a glimmer of hope today. For the first time, our hcg levels have doubled to 105.   I realize that these levels are still incredibly low, but I can’t help but celebrate a little. I feel like we’ve been given a glimmer of hope for this pregnancy for the first time. We are still considered high risk for an ectopic pregnancy, but we won’t find out anything until next week with another blood draw and our scheduled sonogram. For now, I am going to try and think positively. . . and try to stop googling ectopic pregnancy.

  1. Good luck, I will keep my fingers crossed and say a prayer for you, because I would never wish the pain of an ectopic pregnancy on anyone, Keep positive and calm.Hugs form this stranger.

    1. Thank you Ezzyie. I will take all the positive thoughts and prayers that I can get. And I’m sorry to hear about your loss with a past ectopic pregnancy. *Hugs* to you too.

  2. I’m so sorry you are going through this roller coaster 😦 just something for you to consider looking up is ‘misdiagnosed ectopic’, when your hCG numbers are so low they get concerned, but there are stories of women going on to have successful pregnancies despite this – I hope this is the case for you 🙂

    1. Thank you!! I really, really hope that this is the case, and thank you for replying. I am trying to keep my hopes up 🙂
