Hi everyone, I have miscarried twice before, one blighted ovum in dec 2005 and one Down's syndrome baby october 07. I am 31 and today I am 5 weeks 2 days. Went in for beta on 14dpo it was 361 and 19dpo it was 2594. Went for my first U/S today and saw only a gestational sac (11.4x10.3mm). The doctor said he should be able to see a yolk sac by now. Anyway, is this another pregnancy headed towards doom. Also my symptoms have definelty decreased. I am hoping for a miracle and it's yet to happen to me. Is there any hope for me?

abi, I just thought I would offer you a little hope. I was further along than you when I got my U/S and they only seen a gestational sac. 6 days later there was a fetus but no heartbeat. (I was so upset) But the next time I went (10 days later) There was a heartbeat and a baby that looked like a gummy bear:) Don't loss hope yet... I know how you feel I also misscarried... I tend to keep my feelings guarded. But your #s sound good. My thoughts are with you.

Hi Fall thanks for the support. I am worrid because I am losing my symptoms and yesterday I found out my progestrone dropped to 18. Anyway, my doc put me on prometrium. Did you have a successful pregnancy with the baby you had difficulty seeing the first time around.

I went through the same thing. A friend of mine that is a ultrasound tech told me it is normal to only see a sac, even up to 7 weeks, if your uterus is tilted they are harder to see also. I am also on the prometrium and now my symptoms are strong again. I went in at 7wks and there was a baby with a heart beat. I have had 4 m/c and 4 live births, with one of my boys I was told to go home and plan on a m/c cause my levels were so low, he is now 2. Try to think positive thoughts for the baby growing in you.

Mommyto4 congrats on your babies and sorry for your losses. Thanks for your support. I will hope for the best. I don't think I have a tilted utereus but may be there will be a miracle when I go back. Praying to the lord..

I have a tilted utuerus as well and they had a hard time seeing the baby with a normal ultrasound, i am 7 weeks, 6 weeks when I had it done. when they did the v____al ultrasound it was easier to see. Did they do that? I hope everything is ok!


abi_77 - September 22

Missie they did do a v____al ultrasound. I am really losing hope as my symptoms have decreased.

abi, I would have them check your hcg levels again and see what they are doing. I am praying for you hang in there.

abi any news yet have your symptoms come back at all?


abi_77 - September 24

Hi Brenda, thanks for checking in. I am having symptoms, my b___st is still tender to touch and at times I feel nausea and tiredness. Today I had really bad gas problem in the afternoon. But I think that could be because of me eating peas. Anyway, all these symptoms can be attributed to the progestrone I am taking. So who knows. I am waiting for Monday..

abi, after I had mc(s) my dr. did put me on progestrone and I had my second son. i'm pregnant again and as I told you before things did not look good in the beginning however after my 3rd ultrasound the found a baby with a healthy heartbeat. Oh, although progestrone contibutes to some b___st tenderness, its more likely you are experiencing nausea and tiredness due to hcg.

Fall congrats on your babies. Thanks for the info. I will keep you updated.

My fingers are crossed for you Abi!

Any news abi?


abi_77 - September 29

Ok, it's not good news for me. My Gestational sac grew to 30/12mm but nothing inside. This is my 3rd consecutive loss. I am crished. Hope it will work for me the next time.


BrendaW - September 29

Oh Abi my heart goes out to you are they going to start any testing since this is the third loss?


mommyto4 - September 30

Abi Is there any hope? My gestational sack was 12mm and showed no yolk sac or baby at 6 weeks 1 day. Are you going to wait another week to see if there are any changes? My prayers are with you.
