Repeat tests 1 week: I'm sorry you're dealing with this uncertainty. If you have a repeat ultrasound and hcg in a week, the doctor should be able to give you a much better idea of what's going on. If the bleeding or cramping becomes worse before that, please call your doctor or go to the ER to be evaluated.
