Danaa- YAY!!! Congratulations :)

Johnny- Still praying for you, try to take your mind of things a few minutes at a time and enjoy your weekend.

AFM- Everything is moving along perfectly so far with these little nuggets, if they cooperate we'll be able to find out their sex this weekend. BUT we're going to wait until the following week to have a little gender reveal party. I'm so excited to find out, I'm almost positive there's at least one boy in there for some reason. Hope you all have a lovely weekend!

Congrats danaa delighted to hear this.....xx

Johnnyswife thinking of you and hope you get some clear answers. Generally hcg should be more than 1000 to see something. Hoping for good news it is hard being in limbo. When I had ectopic I had pain in my right back but even in this pregnancy I had pains all over my uterus on both sides which freaked me out but relieved it wasn't ectopic. Thinking of you all.

Hey ladies!
Welp! Im closer and closer to being out! Still nothing on the scan and waiting on my levels right now! But at 5.5 weeks we should at least see a small sac. However, I'm not sad, I'm glad I got to see those beautiful lines after so long!!
Since my body is in pregnancy mode, it'll be easier for me to get preggo again!!
I'll still be here to cheer you ladies on! Love you guys, seriously!!!

Yes, scan was transvaginal. I live in GA, so the only other place I could go is the ER. Should I go there?? My levels went from 534 to 1022 in 4 days!!! It should be well over 2100 today.
I'm going to take the shot in the morning. Any strong advice is needed!

Johnyswife im lost,ur numbers are increasing but why doesn't the scan show anything?Could it be an ectopic?!
What did ur clinic suggested?
If you can i say go to the ER and ask for a scan,you got nothing to lose plus a second pair of eyes is always welcomed especially in cases like this.
I don't know what to say or think.
