I was given a urine pregnancy test 3 weeks ago. It came back negative. Three weeks later I have a vaginal ultrasound done and it showed a 5 week pregnancy. My blood work is showing negative. The first was below 1 and the second one was done 4 days later and showed 2.3. I feel pregnant and I can feel the "flutters", have mild nausea and mild stomach discomfort. I have not had my period in over a month. But I did have some slight bleeding and cramping over the past weekend. I guess my question is: Am I still pregnant? Any help would be greatly appreciated. This is my second pregnancy. Thank you.

Hello,

Welcome to ehealthforum

If the vaginal USG is showing pregnancy then it is the most confirmatory test.Blood HCG test usually comes positive after about 10 days of a missed period date and the rising titres of HCG support pregnancy.Light bleeding/spotting is present in somw woman during early pregnancy.
Kindly wait for a week and repeat HCG titres.If they are increased that is a good sign.Consider visiting a Gynaecologist for examination to look for signs and symptoms suggestive of pregnancy.

Take Care!

I had slight spot bleeding a few days before the scan&cramps.The scan showed a 4week pregnancy,which was a shock. I took a pregnancy test aftr the scan but it was negative, took another test the following day which was also negative. Im so confused now.
