I am new to this forum and excited to read through the experiences of all you surrogates!
The one reason I came to this forum was to ask a quick question and hopefully receive a little reassurance. We went through a 3rd transfer on March 22nd which we are very excited to have receive 2 positive beta tests (1st HCG level result was 1508 and two days later it was 3387) which would make me around 6 weeks. We booked the first scan for April 25th.
Last night I woke up around 11 and found that I was bleeding. Not heavily....but enough that I had to wipe a few times. It was bright red. I did not have any discomfort or cramps at all.
I put on a pad and went to bed. In the am there was a small amount of dark red blood on the pad. Again, no discomfort. Before I left for work, there was no sign of blood when I wiped. i had to stop in to the clinic to grab some meds to get me through until the 25th (Estrogen and Progesterone Oil). I discussed this with a nurse and she ordered a blood test. I received a call about an hour ago and my numbers at at 12554. The nurse said they look fine. My question is....if something happened last night, would it not be a little too soon to see a drastic change in the levels? I was not overly confident after the call. My actual Dr's nurse called me and said that he said the numbers look encouraging however, if I want, I can go into the clinic and get an ultrasound and speak with a fellow Dr (since mine is actually on holiday) just confirm that everything is ok. Of course I made the appointment.
As of right now, no blood but, there are dull aches like I am in the early stages of PMS which is nothing abnormal from what I have been feeling over the past few weeks.
Has anyone else experienced a sporadic, short lived bleeding episode within their first 6 weeks?
