I have been showing signs for weeks.My stomach looks bigger I have horrible stretch marks already,I feel emotional all the time.The doctor tested my blood ,my stools and my urine,and said the hcg levels were okay,and everything else looked fine with the other tests,I'm about to loose it.I just want to know what's going on ,everything but the hcg levels points to pregnancy.Going back for another test in 2 weeks I know I can be low in iron so Maybe that can affect the levels? I've never felt this sick,tired and I even get motion sickness in the car.

Welcome to ehealthforum,
If the HCG levels have shown values suggestive of pregnancy, pregnancy can be considered as confirmed as suggested by your symptoms. If worried, go ahead with getting serial HCG level tests done to see if the levels are rising every 48 hours to confirm viable and progressing pregnancy. Visit your doctor/gynecologist for further examination, evaluation, clarification and assistance. Be in regular monitoring and follow-up with your treating doctor/gynecologist and report any new/abnormal symptoms immediately. Take adequate rest. Drink plenty of water. Maintain healthy diet and lifestyle. Look out for danger signs like increase in intensity of abdominal cramps, increasing back pain, fresh bleeding etc. Avoid bending or lifting any heavy weights and avoid heavy work. Avoid standing for long duration and avoid climbing stairs. Avoid use of caffeinated and carbonated beverages.
Take care.
