DownbutnotOUT - June 10

Hi ladies, I unfortunatly lost my baby on May 15, 2006. I woke up with some blood in my panties and new immediatly something wasent right, I went to the hospital where they checked me and told me "no active bleeding and the cervix was closed". The doctor was confident everything was fine but did get me in for an u/s. I was suppose to be 11 weeks 1 day but the baby was only 6 weeks 6 days, no heartbeat. Also my HCG levels were at 7000. Two days I had another u/s to confirm that yes the baby had passed. My HCG was 2500 from blood work taken the same day as the u/s. I had a missed miscarriage, it breaks my heart and I cry constantly over the lose of my baby. But to me the worst was knowing it was dead still inside me, I eventually passed the baby and all tissue 4 days after the first sign of blood. Shortly after I started having the feelings of pregnancy; sore br___ts and the Dr told me that was normal, very shortly they went away. Also I felt ovulation pain, which I have never felt before, about 7-8 days ago. But recently I had the sensation of pregnancy, really strong and I took a pregnancy test and it was a faint positive. It has now been 25 days, since my HCG was 7000, and considering it dropped to 2500 in 2 days I though in no time the numbers would return to 0. Has this happened to anyone else? I am questioning if I am pregnant or it is left over HCG in my body?????? pls help

hi DownbutnotOUT - so sorry for your loss; itt's so hard but you'll find comfort here with others who've been through it and understand your sadness like their own. as far as whether you might be pregnant now or not, it really depends... first off, did you ever have your levels tested since the 2500 (did you take an hpt before the recent one and get a neg ative?) because it is possible for HCG to linger, especially if you have any tissue left over. have totally stopped bleeding for 21 days or more? if so, then you could well be pg again, a__suming you have bd'd in the meantime of course... in any event, if you test again in a few days and it's a strong positive on the htp then you should probably go see your doctor for a blood test... lots of women here have gotten pg before their first a/f after m/c so it's entirely possible... hope this helps... be well and good luck!

Thank you hcw. No I didnt take a pregnancy test soon after the m/c I found myself housebound for the first couple of weeks, not wanting to talk or see anybody. I saw an OBGYN about a week or so ago concerning the m/c and she scheduled me for a u/s on the 21st to make sure all the tissue came out. I am hoping for the best but only time will tell. I will be taking another pregnancy test in about 4 days and hope its a strong positive. Thanks again and I will update u on what happens. take care XoX

Down, I just read this today and I am soo sorry for this loss. Have you seen your doctor recently to confirm anything? I was told that HCG levels go down the same rate that they go up, but it is so contiversal and everone is different. I wish the absolute best for you no matter what the outcome is now!! Down but not out is the way to be!!!
