Patient : Hello. I am 27 years old and have a healthy 27 month old. I started trying to contrive again fast the beginning of February and got pendant on the third try. At the 9 week ultrasound we found that the embryo never developed and I had a d and e on may 31st at 10.5 weeks. I just My last period was in June 22nd and I got a positive result on an early detection pregnancy test on July 19, one dy before my period was due. It was extremely faint and I'm surprised I saw it at all. Because of the previous miscarriage I made an appointment to get blood work to test for hcg. I had the appointment 3 days later when I would have been 4 weeks 2 days according to lmp. My levels came back at 39..they said this was extremely low. Should I be worried based on the fact that a hpt was able to pick up my pregnancy 3 days prior? I I got blood work again yesterday but won't have results until Monday.
