Confused please HELP

Hi everyone- I was about 4 weeks 6 days along yesterday. On Thursday night I started spotting so I went to the hospital. I had a positive pregnancy test Thursday night and the dr said if I was still spotting in the morning he would arrange an emergency ultrasound for me. I went and get couldn't see a gestational sac but she said it could be too early. I had no pregnancy outside of the uterus and no hemorrhage which was good. I went back to the dr at 5pm yesterday and did a urine test and it was negative. He said I must have miscarried. I was so upset and confused. I went home and I POAS and it was positive so that made me even more confused. I don't know how fast HCG leaves your system when you are pregnant but I did not think it was that quick. So now I am waiting for the cramping and the clots and tissue to pass and I have had nothing yet. I never did have any cramping. The doctor never did confirm pregnancy with a blood test. I don't know if I actually miscarried or not, what do you think? I was thinking if I still had a positive test on Monday I would go back to the dr and demand he order blood tests for me to see what's going on. Thank you all for reading and your support.

I'm also about 4 weeks, I had spotting Thursday afternoon which turned to blood at night. Friday morning I woke up to more blood and went to the Emergency Room. They did a blood test, an exam and then an ultrasound. The blood test said I was pregnant but they couldn't find anything in the exam. The Dr said I was having a miscarriage. I had horrible cramping especially after the exam. If you have had none of these signs (cramping, bleeding, etc.) I would definitely go back to the Dr and have a blood test done.

I hope nothing but the best for you!!

Thank you for replying. I have not had any cramping and I am still spotting lightly. I am so sorry that you are going through this as well. It's so hard, this is my first MC after trying for 7 months. I am blessed though I have a 4 year old son.

Its very hard, this is my first MC also. I never thought I could have children as I've never been able to get pregnant before. I guess we thought this was a miracle which ended horribly. I need to be positive and think of the future and the possibilities but right now that's a little impossible. I have to go back to get more bloodwork tomorrow and I'm dreading it, I just want it to be over.

It's good to know I'm not alone especially reading everyone else's posts. I'm glad you aren't experiencing any cramping, alot of people I know spotted during their pregnancies and their Dr's told them it is very normal. My prayers and thoughts are with you :)

(((SARAH))) you got pregnant so that is good because now you know you can. I am so sorry it did not work out for you. My heart breaks for you because I do have a child. I hope this is over for you quickly and maybe you will be able to get pregnant quickly after this because women are more fertile after a MC happens.

Often times the doctors tests aren't as sensitive when it comes to urine tests.
