Symptoms: cramping; light, brown spotting; breast tenderness

After getting a positive result on a home pregnancy test yesterday morning, I began spotting this morning (light, brownish), and it looked similar to what I believe was implantation spotting on Tuesday, January 26. I was alarmed by this and called the doctor; I was then advised to come in this morning. A transvaginal ultrasound revealed very little evidence of pregnancy, but the in-office pregnancy test did yield a positive result. He drew some blood to check my blood type and HCG level. I was advised that my blood would need to be drawn again in 48 hours to check for a doubling of the HCG level, which would indicate a normal pregnancy.
