QUESTION

Dear Midwife, I need to find out what is going on with me. I have a history of a blighted ovum. I had a D&C on June 19th. I had not had a period since the surgery. I took a pregnancy test (actually 3 of them) and they were all positive. I had an ultrasound done on August 6th. The technician said that she saw a gestational sac and she also saw a yolk sac. She wasn't able to locate fetal pole. My doctor did a trace of my HCG levels after 48 hours. On August 9th I had a level of 18,600, on August 11th the level was 28,900. I got those results yesterday.
