ok after reading all of ur stories i know there is hope here is my storie im 29yrs old have had 8 miscarriages in the past and am now pregnant again according to lmp should be 7 wks 4 days had first u/s on feb 6 2012 and they said 5 wks and only a sac no yolk no fetal pole..still to early, here is what they dont tell you every persons cycle is different conception date and ovulation the doctors use a standard mathmatical system to determine how far along you are from your lmp not necessarily accurate. i am going for another u/s in 2 wks to check the progress i have had light spotting throughout this pregnancy and am taking the progesterone treatment as well. my hcg levels are rising on feb 2 8557 and on feb 6 12998 we will find out this afternoon what yesterdays numbers were. so stay positive i know its hard as its all that is on ur mind im with ya on that one and remember docctors are not miracle workers they dont always have the answer and dont always have the answer u want. i know from experience that if ur hcg levels are rising there is always hope and it is hard to not worry but try not to.i will post more as i know it to keep everyone updated,,, anxiously waiting for good news

I read some of your posts and it is really inspiring. I am 5wks and 6 days pregnant according to the calculations from the Doctor however there the v____al ultrasound isnt showing any embryonic sac or baby. My HCG levels are rising and the doctor advises an ectopic pregnancy. However the scan does not show anything in my tubes other that what he believes are two cysts in my left ovary. He suggests a surgery to go in and search through my tube to find out if his thoughts are confirmed. I want to wait because i don't have any pain, my cervix is still closed and i want surgery to be the last resort. Is there any advice that anyone can offer?

I have been reading over this post for the past 4 days, and it has really helped me cope. Here's my story: Last Thursday 03/08, I went in for my first scheduled appointment. The first thing the doctor ordered right off the bat was a t/v u/s. What was noted: I was measuring 5w5d (lmp puts me around that timeframe), an irregular gestational sac was viewed, a subchorionic hemorrhage (doc attributed that to implantation however), and there was a questionable yolk sac (it wasn't plainly seen, but there was SOMETHING there!). Afterwards, the doc talked to me (and might I add, was a complete nightmare! Her entire att_tude suggests that she doesn't really care whether or not my pregnancy works out, that it's just another fetus to her). She advised that I have a 50/50 chance of miscarriage and there's nothing I can do....stated in her own words that "I could flip a coin and it go either way" !!!!! I was shocked by how she so casually approached this! I really want this baby so bad, it will be my first if the coin lands in my favor. I have never been pregnant before, nor do I have any fertility problems that I'm aware of. The tech did say that my uterus was tilted, therefore I'm hoping that had something to do with not being able to view things correctly. So far, everything has been fine. I've had several of the typical early pregnancy symptoms, and no bleeding or serious cramping. I'm hoping it's just too early to tell. I'm scheduled for a follow up u/s on 03/16. The doctor also stated that the heart should begin to beat at 5w6d and that since I was one day behind and she couldn't even see a definitive yolk sac that things didn't look good. Everywhere I've read online, and everybody I've talked to said it's too early to visualize anything, and have an ultrasound. Apparently most docs don't order them until after 6 weeks at least, unless there is bleeding or severe cramping (so I have no clue why mine performed one so early). I also don't understand why she didn't order blood work or perform an exam. The ultrasound was it! Ive been going out of my mind since Thursday over this! I had never seen this doctor before, and it really bothered me by how insensitive she was regarding miscarriage....it just took away all of my hope! Regardless of what happens On the follow up I will be finding a new OB, whether it's for finishing out my pregnancy or getting a second opinion. Women in this situation need positive support right now, not negativity, especially from the person your placing your child's life in their hands! She also made the comment that she's not spiritual and doesn't believe in religion, which her beliefs don't matter to me, but I am on the other hand and I thought it to be rude of her to act so condescending toward me because I could not agree with her. I have prayed to God every night since to allow this child to be born into my life, but I know either way, He has a plan and its His will and I can't change nor go against it. My thoughts and prayers are with every woman suffering through something like this. I know from reading this forum there are many experiences like my own that have been positive, and I'm hoping I have one more to add to that. If anyone has been through something similar please advise me on how it turned out. I'm trying not to stress but it's so hard hanging in limbo for a week! I just want to be prepared, and your words will be greatly appreciated.

UPDATE.... (and for women going through this ordeal in the future) Went back on 7w2d and saw everything! A gest sac, yolk, and baby! Clearly visible....everything looked sooooo much better, also heard the heartbeat! So don't give, I'm thinking anything before 7 weeks you're not gonna see much, even at 6 weeks I was borderline so it made anything definite hard to see, Best wishes to all moms to be out there and God bless! I know this is truly one of Gods miracles :)

After another HCG the doctors feared that it was ectopic after seeing what looked like the foetus on the ultrasound. So i had the surgery and it was ectopic but now there are complications with bleeding and it has been almost a month since then. I'm about to switch doctors for a third time. Its very discouraging but I'm trying to hold it together.

Congrats k0rtnei! I ended up having a miscarriage. I went into labor with it at 2 months. It was inevitable they told me it wasn't developing. My husband and I are going in for chromosome testing. and they are going to look at my Cervix to make sure it is sitting properly and is shaped right. I have a kinda rare blood disorder also that makes things more difficult. I have anti phoshpolipid antibody syndrome. I wish you the best. God doesn't give us anything we can't handle.

Im terrified right now. Had my first u/s last monday at only 4 weeks preg. they only saw a sac about 5mm. Went today for my second u/s at 5 weeks (according to my calculations) and they said the sac measured 20mm ????? is that even possible. To top that off they didnt see anything in the sac. They took my levels again (waiting on results). Last week my levels were 5000. Dr basically told me not to get my hopes up. Im suppose to go for another u/s next tuesday. Please pray for my family I am scared...........
