5wks but no symptoms

Postby nicann2012 » Mon Sep 16, 2013 9:53 pm

FET (2 embryos) on Aug 30 and 2 weeks later, my HCG levels were a whopping 3,193!
we're likely to have twins, but will know for sure next thur (Sep 26) when we go back for our first scan.

as much as we're excited, i'm a bit concerned that im not having any symptoms (no sore breasts, no frequent urination, no fatigue, etc).

bcos my HCG levels were so high, doctor didnt see the need to take another blood test, which is normally the case to see if the levels are doubling up.
but how would i know if they have not decreased since??

tempted to take a HPT just to be sure...any advice?

I was pregnant with twins and my m/s kicked in right before 6 weeks. It was awful.

The only advice I can give you is try to relax and enjoy the fact that right now you're pregnant. If God forbid something would happen, there's nothing you can do about it. That's what I kept trying to tell myself every day.
