Default 2nd beta

I wasn't supposed to have a second beta, but over the weekend I was cramping so bad that my dr. wanted me to have another one to make sure the pregnancy was progressing o.k. So, I just got the results and it was 1507. They said that it's good if it doubles every 48 hours and mine did. I am just still so worried because I am having terrible cramping. It's not all the time, but when I have it, it's worse than any AF cramps I've ever had. Has any one else experienced this? I was worried that it is ectopic, but they said along with abd. cramping most people have shoulder pain? What other symptoms would I have?
Leslie, I looked up your polyps on line and it said that you wouldn't even know you had them unless the dr. saw them on an exam because they are painless and harmless. It said the dr. can take care of them right in the office. What does your dr. say about them? Good luck! How are you feeling? I woke up sick this morning (but it didn't last long). Hope it isn't a precursor of the next 9 months

That's fantastic Missy. It sounds like you are progressing nicely. I'm sorry about the cramping. I don't think that I had any cramping with my pregnancy with Annie. I did bleed at the beginning though. I hope it's nothing beside the baby digging deeper into your uterine lining.

Yes Missy it's tomorrow but I tested on Sunday and got a BFN so I'm not very confident about tomorrow.

Missy, I have read a lot about pregnancy cramping and I think it is pretty normal. The progesterone can cause some cramping too. I know it is hard but try not to worry too much.

Ellen, I tested the Sunday before my beta also and it was negative but when I had my blood test I was pregnant. Do not give up hope yet and good luck tomorrow.
