Hi friends,

I need some advice for my niece. She is newly pregnant. at roughly 6 1/2 weeks she started bleeding alot. She went to dr next day and did u/s. they found that she had a funky shaped uterus: one one side of the heart shaped uterus was the sac (found heartbeat of 120) and the other side was a blob, possibly a sub.bleed. dr was concerned so she drew blood for a beta. that number was 31000, 2 days later it was only 37000. should it have gotten alot higher? she is 7 weeks today. do you think this means that the baby isn't developing and growing like it should?

PLEASE ADVISE!!!!!

Thanks,
V (my daughter from ivf/de is now 4 1/2 wow)

that far into a pg.
The best measure at this point is recurrent u/s.
Good luck to her.

that far into the pg. I've neer had a beta that late into the pg. At that point they just did u/s. I hope everything turns out ok for your niece.
