Sometimes it's nice to get advice from experts with a lot of letter degrees behind their names, but other times, you just need to hear what another parent (with a M.O.M. behind her name) has done that has worked. You've got questions? These moms have answers.

I went back jan 7th for 2nd HCG level it was 619 then again on the 12th it 991. My dr done a ultrasound didnt show anything. but she wants to do another one at the end of next week if nothing still shows she wants me to have a D&C i keep trying to tell her there is no way possible i can be 7 weeks what should i do

Well I definitely wouldn't let her do a DNC! If she keeps on and doesn't listen to you I would change drs. You can't risk your baby on her not listening. I don't get though how your blood work was negative on dec.23 and then on jan.2 you had a positive test. Normally you don't have a positive home test until around 4-6 weeks. I would give it a little more time but this is definitely confusing. I hope all turns out ok for you. Good luck! :)
