Prayers please, things don't look good

So I was in the ER all day today. I am supposed to be 5 weeks and 3 days pregnant. I started getting horrible cramps on my right side yesterday and it has progressively gotten worse. After no sleep I decided to go to the ER this morning.

They drew several vials of blood and urine sample. No bladder infection. Great, but I was not prepared for what followed. No one gave me the result of the lab, but I was sent upstairs for an ultrasound. The tech did her measurements and I asked if she saw the pregnancy. She said no, but she wasn't surprised with how low my numbers were. I had no idea my numbers were low. She said they were just over 300.

According to charts, at 24 dpo I should be over 540 and even averaging at 1000 right now. But I'm not.

Oh wow, you must be such a wreck! How confusing and kind of unprofessional those doctors sound.

sending you all the prayers and positive thoughts that I can. I really hope that you do not have togo through that and the next blood draw shows that things are ok. I can understand going through that. With my last m/c the u/s tech in the hospital wouldn't tell me anything. I got a call from the ob the next day telling me everything was fine and that it was just too early for a hearbeat, however she had not read my chart to see that I was 8 weeks pg and had a heartbeat 2 weeks prior. If you want someone to talk to please don't hesitate. I really do hope things turn around for you.
