I went to the ER last night with right side abdominal pain. I was so worried it was an ectopic pregnancy. Long story short, I had an u/s and the baby is in the uterus! 5-6 weeks along, all they saw was the yolk sac but said that was normal for where I was measuring. My blood hCG levels came back normal for 5-6 weeks development too. No problems with my appendix, ovary, or the fallopian tube that they could see. I still have the pain but it's not any worse. They suggested it could be pain from the corpus luteum cyst, but that it looked normal by u/s. Do any of you have pain from yours or know anything about it? I have to call and schedule a follow up blood work and u/s in a week so they can try to see a heartbeat. In the meantime, I am in dull pain and not hungry at all although I did manage to eat some cereal this morning. Would appreciate some information if you ladies know anything about this. Thanks!
I just got off the phone with my doctor's office. Turns out my corpus luteum has fluid behind it which they think is slowly leaking into my abdominal cavity and causing the discomfort. It should just be reabsorbed, but since it is not leaking into my uterus, I am not bleeding at all. They also say my hormone levels are fantastically high: 27,174. I have no idea what that means but they will do a repeat u/s next week and skip the bloodwork. Crazy times.
