    Hi... Just to prepare myself, i'll ask the what if question.

    What if tomorrow when i have my HCG levels re taken, it goes back up? its been rising very slowly, i had surgery for suspected eptoic and now they have dropped)

    I know the doctors will want me to take the medication to dissolve it all (which i dont like the sound of anyway).

    Could i still be miscarrying? im clear of an eptopic as i had surgery and found nothing on Fri..

    Im not saying it will go up, but just what if??? It would just top me off it think...hehe! should i get positive?

    xxx Im sounding like a looney now arent i?

    Heya,

    I'm not sure of the answer, it all seems very confusing - I had a similar situation in 2000 when I was diagnosed with possible miscarriage and then an ectopic when they couldn't find a uterine sac but there was a positive test and bleeding and obviously strange HCG levels which I didn't understand at the time......there was no surgery and in the end I was sent home with a "tubal abortion" diagnosis - but I'll never really know!

    I guess the point is that diagnosis and the difference between miscarriage and ectopic can be tricky to pinpoint - and doctors never really know how much of a fighter your little bean is so there's always a chance things could work for you :hug:

    Thank you so much for your time and encouraging words.

    Im still holding on to any little bit of hope. I really should start facing up to the fact that it will probably happen. Whats worse is that i still havent been able to see my little on on a scan as my levels are too low to show it and im 8 weeks today :-(

    my emotions, like everyone that goes through this im sure....are all over the place. My husband is really trying to keep me together. i feel so bad that he's having to put up with me like this. Nothing i do or think is making me feel any better right now.

    thanks again xxx

    its only natural to cling to hope...i certainly did for the 4 days before i lost when i was spotting.
    Have you tried another pregnancy test at home to see if the line i lighter or darker? I know it isnt a realy good way of determining much but it may give an answer?
    hope your ok xx

    i did one yesterday and it was lighter than the one i did the week before.
    Im not bleeding at all at the moment, which is obviously a good sign, but i did bleed at 5weeks then for about an hour last sun. (but levels went up after both of those bleeds)

    who knows.. im really hoping they go up again tomorrow.xxx
