So the not knowing WTH was going on left me with the resolve to head to the ER to get thte U/S done and the HCG count.
I tried watching the u/s screen but you know how they are at this stage, tight lipped and they avoid things. I saw gestational sacs and thought maybe blighted ovum.
Since she was saying she couldn't say anything I figured I lost the baby.
So then the doctor came in and was kind of upbeat and said that they did see a 5 week gestational sac, and that my HCG levels were within normal range of a 5 week pregnancy at 9980.
I am stunned and utterly confused now that I didn't know what to say and couldn't formulate a question.
She did say that bleeding at 5 weeks was normal, but it could also mean that I was miscarrying. But that they couldn't do anything to prevent a miscarriage, well duh, but that wasn't my intention. I knew they couldn't stop it.
So I said - But I was supposed to be 10 weeks along.
And she just goes "Oh well then you are probably miscarrying. Sorry." And then leaves.
WTH!!!! I'm still trying to process all of this as it wasn't making ANY sense at all.
So here is my confusion:
U/S shows a 5 wk pregnancy
HCG count shows a 5 wk pregnancy (9980)
Calendar says should be 10 weeks.
So now if I lost the baby 5 weeks ago and have been bleeding for almost a week now, I don't get how my HCG count could still be at the 5 week level! A high level at that, IMHO. That to me makes no sense. Logically to me I think my HCG levels should have been below the 5 wk mark and not at par with it.
I do go in on Thursday to get my blood drawn again and that of course will tell us difinitively if I am truly pregnant and the #'s are increasing or decreasing.
If they are increasing then WTH happened to 5 weeks of my pregnancy?! LOL
Is it possible I was pregnant but lost it and it reabsorbed without a period because I am nursing and I just happened to O again an conceive 5 weeks later? That this bleeding is a normal period but that I'll stay pregnant (some women have period while pregnant) or is it that I am miscarrying?
So by Friday I will know one way or the other and hopefully the bleeding will have stopped by then.
Talk about freaky weird.
I can only guestimate another EDD based on the u/s to be April 21st-ish.
: I am so confused and helpless.
The downside in all of this, is that if I am still pregnant I lost 5 weeks of it somewhere and just when I thought my baby looked like a baby, it's back to being a blob and having to grow limbs again! LOL
