Transvaginal Ultrasound And Bleeding

AnytimeLittleone - February 17

As most of you know, I found out that I was pregnant again 4 weeks ago. I considered this my miracle baby, as Dr's didnt think Id be able to get pregnant again after the delivery of my dd (lots of trauma to uterus). I went for a transva___al ultrasound, and everything seemed fine. 4-5 hours later, I was hit with large amounts of cramping, bleeding, and passing clots. I went into my doctor, who told me I was pg with twins, and that it looked like "one" of the pregnancies was not viable and that I would miscarry. I have now been bleeding for 2 weeks. Ive been told that there is no way an embryo can survive the amount of bleeding that Im experiencing. When I had the ultrasound done, the woman was by no means gentle! I dont blame this bleeding on the ultrasound completely... but for all you mom's that are planning on becoming pregnant in the future, be VERY WARY of the transva___al ultrasound :(

How far along are you now? Had you already been told that you were preg with twins after the initial ultrasound? Has the doctor done another ultrasound to check for a second embryo or to check on the well being of the pregnancy? Are they checking your hcg levels? Sorry about all the questions, but I was just wondering if the doctor is just a__suming that it's a twin pregnancy. I can tell you that my step-mother experienced ma__sive bleeding while pregnant with her last baby. This was 14 years ago, but they also told her that it was possible that is was a twin pregnancy and that she only lost one....they never actually confirmed it though. Also, I was going to mention as far as the transv____al ultrasound, you said that she wasn't gentle....what did she do exactly? I've had several transv____al ultrasounds with my numerous pregnancies and I've never had one be so much as uncomfortable. With all mine the transducer barely had to be introduced into the v____a so I'm wondering if maybe this woman wasn't a little more rough than what she needed to be?

Oh, I meant to elaborate that my step-mother did give birth to a healthy baby boy even after experiencing all of that bleeding.

! week post conception, my HCG levels were extremely high (8,000ish). My doctor had thought I was 2 months pregnant.. which is why I was sent for the u/s. During the ultrasound, the tech told me "everything looked fine", and then at my doctor's follow up, she told me there were twins, but that one embryo was not forming. At that doctors appointment, I had already been bleeding for a week, and she told me that it should stop soon. My HCG levels are doing wonky things... they went from 17,000 to 25,000 then dropped to 19,000... but are still high for 6 weeks pg. I have another transv____al ultrasound on tuesday.. and Im so scared. The first u/s I had she seemed to be pressing very hard, and was very "sharp" in her movements. Ive had other transvag u/s and this one was.. strange. Im not expecting to see any kind of life on the approaching u/s... but I suppose anything is possible. Like I said.. I dont completely blame the ultrasound for the bleeding.. but yes, the woman was very rough in her movements.

Aww Im very sorry to hear about the stuff youre going through. I really hope that on that u/s on Tuesday all looks well.. theres a good chance of that happening. Please keep us informed, you will be in my prayers! ~Kristin~

I hope all turns out well. As I said, my stepmom had ma__sive bleeding and the doctor was positive that she was miscarrying. Once it was all over (over the course of a month and a half she was hospitalized once and had several other bleeding episodes) the dr. told her that she had to have been preg with twins and lost one as he had never seen someone bleed like that and not lose the baby. My brother is a healthy 14 year old today though. I know it must really be weighing on your mind, especially since this was an unlikely pregnancy. I will be keeping you in my prayers.

OMG Rabbits, thats insane! The doctor told me the same thing... "nothing can live through this". It has been 2 weeks of intense bleeding and clotting. God bless your step mother for going through this... and god bless any other woman who has miscarried and has gone through similar symptoms. If this bleeding doesnt slow down soon, I can forsee going to hospital soon :( Thank you for keeping me in your prayers, I'll keep you all updated re: my ultrasound on tuesday!

I am so sorry you are going through this. When I was 12 weeks pregnant I went in for a routine pap smear and was bleeding for days after. I started bleeding very heavily and sorry tmi-pa__sing tissue and clots so I went to the er and they told me for sure I was misscarrying. Well, I didnt and I was shocked how much I was bleeding. So you never know. I will be praying for you. Good luck!

Ry... did they send you home from the hospital to have the m/c on your own at 12 weeks? My biggest fear right now, is that if this IS a m/c... its taking too long.. and will I be able to m/c myself at 12 weeks along... (ie: at what point is a d&c absolutely necessary...)

I'm sorry you are going through all of this. I have no experience with the bleeding and possible twins thing, but with my first pregnancy I had a transv____al u/s that really hurt. It was a man doing it and he just didn't seem to have a clue. It felt like he was pushing the transducer really hard when they looked for my ovaries (when they have to turn it to the side a little). It was like he was putting WAY tooo much pressure on my v____al wall (sorry TMI). But with my next three pregnancies I had TV u/s's and they were fine... so I would think this girl needs to be told (maybe through a superior) that she needs to be more gentle. Can you request another u/s tech for tomorrow?

Because of the amount of bleeding that Im having, and the fact that my v____al area is already very tender and sore, I'll be telling EVERYONE tomorrow to go easy...

Anytimelittleone, that was my fear too, and yes, they were going to let me go home and let it happen, then check me in a few days to make sure I didnt need a follow up d&c. But when they finally got the results back from my levels they were high so they did a quick regular ultrasound and all ended up being fine. I am sorry but I am unclear, do you fear you are losing both of your babies? Or just the one that the doctor felt was not viable? I have a suspicion that that is what happened to me. I may have been pregnant with twins and lost one. (My hcg levels were pretty high and they thought I was farther along then I knew I was)

And tell the freakin' b___h to be more gentle with you. Sorry but I would be so mad! I was after my pap smear too, it was ridiculous!

Apprently its quite common to have a twin pregnancy... but most of the time the 2nd twin doesnt implant.. and thus doesnt have to be flushed from the system. Im feel very encouraged when people tell me their stories of bleeding during pregnancy.. and then I go to the bathroom, see the amount of blood in the toilet and I think "yup, dr is right, Nothing can live through this."

I feel so terrible for you Anytimelittleone. Just wanted to wish you luck tomorrow, i will be thinking and praying for you.
