can anyone help me with dates? I've already been told I'll m/c.. - Page 2

Well, 3700 is low if the only time you had sex was in May - it's around the 5 weeks pregnant level. However, betabase shows successful pregnancies at HCG level of the lowest of 539 at 30dpo - and that is pretty low - so I'm hoping for you!

DDCCing to say that during this pregnancy, they had a hard time finding the heart beat the first time, and even the second U/S (done about 1.5 wks apart since we had a previous loss for my first pregnancy). My heart literally stopped until they found it. baby was just in an odd location in the uterus, and mine isnt even tilted. this was also with a TransVag U/S. that was at 6.5 wks and 8 wks.

I have the highest hopes for you, and really have to give you so much for being so strong, and insisting on the additional U/S!!!


FWIW, I do see something in those US shots, but you can tell they are taken from different angles, so it's hard to tell exactly what it might be... I see something more promising in the first one, but the second could be viewing an embryo from the front, so you only see the head/tail nubs instead of the profile view.

I agree with kalamos' calculations, esp since you didnt give us ovulation date. It's still possible with all the circumstances that they're having a hard time detecting a totally viable pg.

good luck, I'll be following everything crossed for you!

omg =(

The o/b's office just called and said I miscarried. My levels went down to 34000. I was wrong about the numbers yest, I thought they were 3400.. nope 34000, but they were 36000. They wanted me to schedule a d&c. I told them I'd call back. holy crap.. I don't know what to do!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I have to research this first... I'm not bleeding. I need another ultrasound, maybe a 3d one or something, I'm shaking so hard

The doctor just called back himself, said that he doesn't feel it's healthy for me to have false hope. Said that whatever was in the sac yesterday was "debris" and that there is a 0% chance. I have an appt at 11:15 for another, and last ultrasound.

Oh honey, I am so so sorry. Btw, you don't HAVE to have a D&C if you don't want to, there are other options, ask your doctor about using Mistoprostol or letting your body do it naturally. The HCG levels - I dunno - that is a hard one because they start leveling out or dropping around 8ish weeks anyway. Make sure they do an in depth u/s so you are positive this time for your own sake. I am so sorry, I wouldn't wish this on anyone. I would definitely research it, and please keep us updated (((((hugs))))))

thanks, I'm going to make sure they are positive! I'm not going to let them kill my baby if it's alive.. god I hope there is something there, some heartbeat today. If they insist on scheduling, I'm not going to do it for today..and if they insist, I'm not showing up. I'm so scared. according to LMP, I would be past 8 weeks! May 3rd LMP.. I hope my levels are dropping because of the week.

34,000 is a pretty high HCG level; I would definately hope they do a thorough ultrasound.
I hope you find answers soon mama. I know how stressful and awful this limbo is.

They can't force you to undergo a D&C. Not today, not ever.
If it comes to the point where you need to make that decision, I would ask for other options. You can be chemically induced, or you can wait it out.
There is no rush.

I am so sorry

Michelle is right... give it some time mama, ask about options.
post #35 of 61
oh mama, i'm so sorry you have to go through this!

and i agree with finnegansmom, you don't *have to* do anything. i see nothing wrong with waiting it out or asking for other options, but of course do your own research about it so you feel comfortable with whatever you choose to do! at the very least, i would not do anything this week...give yourself some time, mama! this is such a difficult thing to go through...i'm so sorry

Mama I'm so sorry you're having to go through this! I hope you get answers and soon.

This website may be helpful to you. There are stories of women that had a dx similar to yours and the baby was there and fine. So, you never know. It's worth checking out.

Also, I totally agree with the PPs! If it comes to it, not only do you NOT need to do a D&C, it's better if you don't. D&Cs carry risks. Of course, a lot of mamas just don't want to wait, as it's tough emotionally. So, it really depends on you.

I agree with previous posters and just want to give you a (((((((hug)))))))

Just wanted to send you a hug.

Oh, mama! I'm so sorry. You do not have to have a D&C. If you feel the need to help things along you might check the recommendations in the book The Herbal for the Childbearing Years.

I wish you peace.

I had a similar experience with my third pregnancy. I chose to let nature take its course and not have a d&c or take meds. It took several weeks from the time I knew and the time I actually miscarried. It was hard to be in limbo, but I have never regretted letting my body deal with it on its own. Take some time to heal and be gentle to yourself. Pregnancy loss is devistating. I'm very sorry you are going through this. Don't let someone else push you into something you do not want to do. Trust in yourself and you body to know what's right.
