Hello....I am new here....so if I am using this incorrectly I am sorry and maybe you can educate me.
I have my first doctor visit today. I had a miscarriage back in January, so they tested my hcg on this pregnancy. I am not sure what the DPO was....my the first day of my last period was April 26.
My doctor tested my HCG on June 2 and my hcg was 1122.3, progesterone was 15.64. He tested me again on June 4 and my hcg was 2286.5. I am really nervous about my appointment today. I really do not think I have been having very many symptoms at all. Maybe a little fatigue....but it has been a really busy time. And maybe a little breast tenderness and more frequent urination....but that seems like it is not as bad as it was.
I am not having any cramping or spotting at all....but I am worried so much since the last preganacy ended in a miscarriage. I have no symptoms to make me think I am miscarrying this time....but I have very few symptoms to make me think things are progressing as they should either. I am scared to death about the appointment today.
Since the HCG levels were doubling....does that increase the chance that things are ok and that they will see a hearbeat? Any advise, suggestions or comfort would be welcome.

You probably won't hear a heartbeat with a doppler for a few more weeks, although you would be able to see one on an ultrasound. As for your hormone levels, the hCG is perfect but the progesterone is low. You should talk to your doc about repeating the level and possibly putting you on a supplement to help. (15 is NOT in the danger zone, but you don't want it dropping to 10 or below) Few symptoms isn't a problem...my main symptom is exhaustion but other than that I've been doing pretty well. A few cravings and a few food aversions, but not really nauseous at all and no sore boobs. Definitely going to the bathroom more, I think. Also no cramping or spotting here...which is a good sign for both of us!! Not having many symptoms does not mean that anything is wrong...there are lucky women who don't have symptoms at all, and they have perfectly healthy babies. Without clear evidence that something is amiss (bleeding/cramping/no heartbeat on ultrasound), try not to worry...although that may seem impossible. Good luck!!!Me (29), DH (43)
