gestational sac 4w0d but low beta????

Postby woodsgurl » Tue Nov 10, 2009 9:34 am

Thurdsay Nov 5th my beta was only 10 then Monday Nov.9th,I got a yes or no blood test.Hcg had to be 50 for it to be positive.My test came out positive.Then dr sent me to u/s and there was a gestational sac measuring 4 weeks.Not sure what my beta was but how in the world could it have increased enough to see a gestational sac?Doesn't it have to be at least 1000?I have taken several hpts and they keep getting darker.Could this be a blighted ovum?I have a ultrasound scheduled tomarrow and another beta at a different hospital.With the first beta the hospital was having computer difficulties.But I feel it is highly unlikely that the beta was a error.

History-I have had 2 previous miscarriages.Both ended around 6 weeks.The first one we did get a heartbeat.Didn't know it ended til 8w6d.

With my last miscarriage-I took a test from the same clinic that where my hcg had to be at least 50 and it was positive.6/28/09 Transvaginal ultrasound the same day measured a gestational sac 4w3d.

7/1/09-beta=30

7/6/09 beta=163

7/11/09=miscarriage



I'am afraid that history is repeating itself.Why would a gestational sac show so early (measuring right on time) with a possible low beta?

The dr said it could be a gestational sac or it could not be.That it was just too small to measure.The u/s tech said the other u/s tech had her's magnified alot.My beta was 242 which the dr says is good.So far so good.Please keep my bean in your prayers.
