Hcg levels was19488 no heartbeat seen (tilted uterus) to 25391 in 3 days, doc told me to prepare for miscarriage. Still any hope?

Hcg levels was19488 no heartbeat seen (tilted uterus) to 25391 in 3 days, doc told me to prepare for miscarriage.   Still any hope?

If your "severe cramping" worsens or worries you, it will be wise to consult your gyn and perhaps request a pelvic sonogram and a reevaluation...and alleviation of your symptoms too. ...Read more
