I have just been for a transva___al u/s. i thought i was 6wks 3days from lmp. Only a gestational sac was found, no yolk sac or heartbeat. the midwife said the sac was tiny, more like what she would expect for 5 wks preg. she said i may not be as far along as i thought depending on when i concived, if i had a longer cycle. I have to go back in 2 wks for another u/s. i am reallly worried that something is wrong, but trying to be hopefull at same time. has anyone else had similar experience? Please Help!

Hi Jules. I am having the exact same thing. I am 6 weeks 6 days from lmp, and I have had one rollercoaster ride since the start of this week. I had severe bleeding last Sunday, then a transv____al u/s Monday which showed empty sack but no yolk sack or heartbeat. They tested my hcg levels Monday...they were 5300, then again wed., they went up to 8800, and just did it again yesterday but I do not know the results yet. I had another u/s yesterday, and still no yolk sack or fetal pole or heartbeat. I have had some spotting all week, and more yesterday. I have a Dr. apt. next week on friday and if there is no heartbeat, Dr. is going to do a dnc. This entire week has been so unbelievable. Please let me know how you make out...I am 37 yrs old...wondered if age has anything to do with it...take care

Hi ShelleyTony! sorry to hear u going thru this nightmare aswell. i had my folow-up u/s on fri, following a week of bleeding. The sac had grown, and there is now a yolk sac, but still no heartbeat. midwife says she is 98% sure the pregnancy is failing and i am in process of miscarrying. we were expecting this, but is still so upsetting. I am now sitting it out till next fri when i have to go back to confirm my pregnancy has ended, and whether i will have a d&c. hope all works out well for u. Let me know how u go. xx p.s i am 26, so i dont think age has anything to do with it.

Hi Jules. Your midwife and my Dr. are on the same page as far as the next step...I am going on Friday for another ultrasound, and if there is no heartbeat...d & c will be done. I also have had some bleeding and cramping. Did they take blood and tell you what your hcg levels are? Just curious...Keep me posted as to what happens, and I will do the same. Glad to know age does not seem to be a factor, but it does not make you feel so great when things like this take place.

Hi again! No they didnt take blood, i asked if they could do this to give me more answers but they said no for some reason! Maybe you will have better news seen as though your levels have been going up! seems like d&c is the next step for me if i dont miscary fully before friday. (either that or they said you can have tablets inserted which i think i would prefer to be honest). We will both find out on friday then. I will keep my fingers crossed for you. good luck!

Hi Jules. Wonder why they did not take blood. My hcg level went up to 13,000 on my last visit Friday, but there is no fetal pole or heartbeat. I was told at hcg level of 10,000 you should have a heart beat. I have had some bleeding, cramping, and I am realy worried as to how this pregnancy will turn out. I can not eat after midnight Thursday because I have to be prepared to go to the hospital for a d & c Friday if this does not look good. I would request the blood work if possible...wonder what your hcg levels are...and wish you well in whichever way it goes. Talk about a real rolloercoaster ride. I have not told anyone except my mom & sister-in-law. What does your partner say about all of this?

Yes, keep our fingers crossed. Good luck to you, too, dear. Shelley

Hi Shelley, how long have you been bleeding for? i am on my 12th day now, was expecting it to be heavier by now aswell. still having period-like cramps aswell. maybe its not going to happen on its own afterall, and will have to have d&c. We have told most people that knew we were pregnant now, but hadnt told that many people to start with. My husband doesnt really say much about it, he is upset but i dont think men show their feelings the same as us do they! He has been great with me when i have my bad moments thou! How has your partner been? Juliexx

Hi Shelley, How long have you been bleeding for? i'm on my 12th day now, thought it would have been alot haevire by now, maybe its not going to happen on its own afterall and will have to have d&c. Am still having period-like cramps aswell. we have told most people by now (that knew we were pregnant) but hadnt really told many people in the first place. My husband doesnt really say much about it, he is upset but i dont think men show their feelings in the same way as us!! he has been great when i have had my bad moments thou! How has your partner been? Just out of interest, is this your first pregnancy? Julie xx

Sorry! had problems posting 1st message, thats why its duplicated!!!

Hi Jules. I have some news, and it is not good. I had some more bleeding yesterday, not severe, but the cramps, tightness in my lower belly area, and I called the Dr. and they had me come in right away for another ultrasound. The results were not good, Dr. said it was not progressing although my hcg levels had risen, still the pregnancy is not going like it should. As far as my husband...he has taken this sooo hard, he cried last night, cried when he told his mother, cried while in bed, cried, cried, cried, and I have not many tears. I guess I am numb, or knew in my heart of hearts this was not going right...my body was giving me the answers. My morning sickness was gone, and so was the urge to pee all of the time. I was also really worried because if the pregnancy did go on further, the Dr. was going to do the amnio and I did not want to have to make decisions like that...what to do if s/he had a genetic defect. I go tomorrow at 2:30 pm to the hospital for the d & c...no food after midnight tonight. I do not think it will be a picnic, but I will go on from here. Time heals all wounds, so I will heal. I hope it all works out for you & your hubby, too. Take care, Shelleyxx

Hi Shelley, I am so sorry, that is awful news. i do know what your going thru and i know its not easy. I know what u mean about if the pregnancy was carrying on. I dont know what i would do if when i go 2morrow they say there is a heartbeat (very unlikely i know!) but then we would have to think what to do cos there would obviously be something wrong with the baby anyway. I think i have more or less come to terms with the fact that it wasnt meant to be this time. Even thou i still get upset when i think about it. I am sure we will both have healthy babies next time. I will be thinking about you both 2morrow (we will be at hosp at same time!) I hope the d&c goes well and that its not too traumatic for you. Take care, and keep in touch! xx

Hi Jules. Hi Dulce. Jules...how did it go at the hospital yesterday? I am doing okay...gotta take it easy for a few days. Kinda crampy. Did they give you any good news? Or did yours turn out like ours...Take care and I hope you are feeling okay...Shelleyxx P.S. my Dr. is going to do some tests and let us know what went wrong with the developement... And Dulce, I don't know what to say except this has been a real rollercoaster ride. I hope you get some better news than I did, and maybe your dates were off. Did they do the hcg tests for you? Just wondering...

 

Dulce - March 31

Hey Shelley im really sorry for your loss..hope your doin better..well they did check my hcg levels..they didnt give me excact numbers or i was just 2 nervous and didnt pay attention lol..but she sed by my numbers im at 5-10 wks..it gave me some hope but then again that can mean my numbers have been goin down..thats the 1st time they checked my blood for hcg levels so i dont kno wat 2 think...im tryna stay positive but its hard..i really hope my days are off..because my boyfriend is pretty sure we concieved in the beginnin of Feb which would make me like 6 or weeks..so im hopin he's right....

Hi Shelley! Glad the op went ok for you, and that your not feeling too bad. At least it is over now and you can try to move on. I think the waiting part is the hardest. Bad news for us as we expected, sac has grown but yolk sac is no longer there. I am waiting till mon to get an appointment to have the tablets inserted to bring on the miscarriage. I feel this is a better option for me than the d&c. So still not over for us yet unfortunately. Thats good that your doc is trying to give you answers as to why it happened. Anyway hope you are feeling well again sson. Put your feet up and take it easy for the next few days! take care. xxx

Hi Dulce. Sorry to hear you are going thru this aswell. It is a complete nightmare as i'm sure you are aware. I hope that your dates are just off, and that you see your baby next time you go for u/s. Its good that you havnt had any pain or bleeding, so at least thats a good sign.I had pains very early on, that was the reason for me having an early u/s. I will keep my fingers crossed for you ad hope for a better outcome than ours!
