Mirena IUD pregnancy & low/slow rising hcg levels

I got pregnant with the Mirena in place last year and ended up having a blighted ovum...fast forward to this september, I had another Mirena inserted 9.18.18 b/c who could possibly get pregnant twice on the mirena? ME!! Yep, just because I was nervous it would happen again, i was taking dollar store pregnancy tests every week to two weeks...on 10/24/18 I got a faint positive...went the next day to the dr and had the mirena removed...had a little bleeding a couple days letter for a couple of hours due to the removal I think...my levels have been as follows: 70, 100, 76, 196, 251...i go for another blood draw tomorrow to see if still rising...i'm wondering if anyone thinks there may be a correlation between mirena pregnancy and low hcg and slow rising early in pregnancy...dr thinks I may just be super early or of course, could be another impending miscarriage...

Oh my gosh, you are kidding me?!!  That's nuts . . . lol.  Well, I don't know if LOL is appropriate.  How do you feel about the pregnancy since you were on birth control.  I hope you are good with it.  It makes sense to me that it is super early.  Oh my gosh, I can't believe it.  LOL  Please come back and tell me what happens at your next draw and what the numbers are!!!

Sorry , I just figured out how to log back in LOL
I’m thrilled to be pregnant...I’ve wanted another baby since my twins were 2 and they r 15 now... dh wanted to be done so I just accepted it and prayed for a miracle haha
My last number came back at 146 so we are pretty sure it’s another miscarriage... I went yesterday for another hcg test to be sure they are going down and should get the results some time today... still praying for a miracle but knowing I may only get to meet this little one when I get to heaven... thank you for reaching out {hugs}

Oh, I'm so happy you are pregnant sweetie.  I am hoping and praying it all works out for you and you get to meet your baby bundle of joy right here on earth!!  Things have a weird way of working out. That you got pregnant twice on the mirena IUD?  That's nuts!  I will be waiting to hear how your draw goes tomorrow.  I have a soon to be 15 year old.  I  can't imagine having two.  ha ha.  They are a challenge at times.  Yours are in high school?

Yea they are I high school and my son plays basketball and daughter plays volleyball... I also have an 18 year old son who just left for college this year and plays ball... it’s fun but I miss them being little...
I started bleeding the other day and have now stopped... I bought a dollar store test and it came back negative... I’m very sad about it and told my kids tonight.. I don’t understand why God has allowed this to happen again since He knows how long I have wanted another child but I trust that He sees and knows what I don’t and His ways are perfect even though it doesn’t make sense to me right now... I have to trust that everything will turn out ok...
I'm so sorry to hear about this!  Please know that we are here if you need someone to talk to.  :(

Oh gosh, you have one who left the nest.  That's going to be rough for me.  Well . . . I think.  ha.  Both my kids are up in their room right now after giving me some lip.  Grrrrr.  
I am SO so sorry about the negative test.  I truly am hon.  That's a loss.  Are you going to ditch the mirena altogether and try again?

Hey, I'm on the relationship forum where there are some fun questions and nice people.  If you want the link, I'll give it or it is under communities under the R's. It's here at medhelp.  

But I am deeply sorry about this not working out.  Go for hcg test and find out for sure and I'll still hold on to faith and hope.  hugs
