Postive Thoughts Needed :( UPDATE 11/14 now to wait for chromosome testing - Page 6

post #101 of 133
Crossing everything for you for the 11th. I'm sure it's going to be such a horrendously long wait. Be good to yourself and take care until then.

I still feel very pregnant and it should give the baby a better chance at showing some growth with waiting a little over a week for another ultrasound.

That's a good point that you need to wait long enough that you could expect the baby to be bigger (and present!) and your beta numbers to be higher.

My baby died at 8 weeks but I didn't find out until 10 weeks. Starting within a couple of days after it theoretically stopped growing I got ravenously hungry and continued to be nauseated and even vomited several times. With my two previous pregnancies I hadn't been so hungry. Because of this I was wondering if I would see twins at my ultrasound at 10 weeks. Instead I saw an 8 week embryo with no heartbeat. I tell this story only because I think it's important to remember that symptoms can continue and even increase after the baby has died. My body kept growing a placenta until 15 weeks when I finally miscarried. So my symptoms kept going, too, although they did taper off by about 12 weeks.

All that said, I hope so so much that your baby is alive and well and I do believe that there's been enough wackiness in your care and enough inconsistencies that there's certainly a possibility of that.

Kami. I just wanted to let you know how sorry I am about the whole rollercoaster you are going through. I second what someone else said; you are handling this with incredible grace. (I know my own first trimester bleeding rollercoaster had me ripping my hair out and falling apart...)

I'm sorry you've been treated with such insensitivity- I'm glad you continued to advocate for your little one.

You are in my thoughts. I dearly hope you have a viable pregnancy.

I started cramping yesterday and ended up loosing the baby greensad.gif  Ended up having a lot of bleeding and we went to the ER. I saved the tissue & blood clots.  They are going to attempt to do chromosomal testing on the tissue. Not sure if they will be able to since they screwed up and put it in formalin instead of saline greensad.gif
