I am 30 years old... 31 in December... and have two beautiful kids. We settled into the fact that we were done having kids and then SURPRISE.. I found out I was pregnant. It took two weeks but we were soo excited and looking forward to this surprise.. then I miscarried. I now think I want another child... although my husband is not soo convinced. Here is the thing.. I still feel pregnant.. sore bb's, sore abdomen and back... hormonal... headaches... I had a miscarriage 6 years ago and don't remember this happening. When we went to the hospital they did an ultrasound and estimated me at 3-4 weeks.. saw the sac with TWO dots in it... opposite ends. HCG at 1000... which seems high for one baby at 3 weeks. No heartbeat nor fetal pole yet. I did have lots of bleeding and clots. I am waiting for results from doctor... I know I have already gotten my hopes up that I am still pregnant.. but in my heart I know I am not. I guess just looking for others in similar situation to go through this crazy process with.

Pebbles...I am sorry about your loss. The reason most likely that you are still feeling pg is because when a woman has a m/c the pg hormone hcg is still in the body. Even though we lose our babies, our bodies take a while to 'go back to normal'. Once the hormone is back to zero ( a count less then 5 is considered 0) then your body should feel normal again. That is when you should 'o'; again and have an af. Some women need help with that though after a m/c. SO it all depends on your body. If you want to ttc again, you ahve to be on the same page as your dh...and I think if he knows how much it means to you, that he will come around to wanting one as well. As for the twin factor, when a woman has twins and m/c's one..it is called the vanishing twin. It is sad, but it happens. The only way to know if you are sucessfully carrying a twin is to have your dr. do another u/s. I hope this helps.....

Thanks for your help smmom2.. I think it is false hope to wish for a twin.. although the two spots could have indicated that as the doctor said.. but both in the same sac does not give one a good chance to thrive with loosing one. I am hoping we can come to an agreement to try again. Thanks again for your time.. We'll see what the future brings!

when i got pregnant, i had an u/s and the tech only saw the sac, no baby. when i got up from the table, i bled and pa__sed lots of tissue and was told i had miscarried and to come back in 2 weeks to make sure it completed on its own. during those 2 weeks, i kept feeling pregnant with the heartburn, potty breaks, and i bought dollar store tests to make sure the positives faded, indicating the hcg levels were going down as they should. well they never did and 2 weeks later at my next ultrasound, i saw our baby and i saw the heartbeat. i'm now 39 weeks pregnant with her and my doc told me never trust a uterus, so if you still feel pregnant after a couple of weeks, ask for another internal ultrasound just to check. after what i went through, i believe anything is possible.
