I am sorry for your loss and hope that things didn't turn out that way again..I also had two losses since last summer..in the last 15 months this is now my third pregnancy.. What scares me is the lack of symptoms (which was the same for my last 2 losses) and I am hoping that it just means I am lucky to be symptom free.. We are now a month later, how did things turn out?View Thread
I'm so happy for you and hope you continue to get only great news I joined the board already even though I am only 5w3d today but my reasoning is this: if I do m/c again I want to have been able to enjoy this pregnancy and share my good news with you ladies. My 1st appt. is Nov. 6th although this will be only a routine OB appt. I probably won't get an u/s but will def. be asking for one. I will be 8 weeks by then is it possible to hear the heartbeat with the doppler at 8 weeks?View Thread
Hi Hope, I just posted to you on your other thread so go check that out but I wanted to post here too to say that these u/s pics look great!! So sweet you can see hers/his face already!! Congrats again and hope to hear from you soon!View Thread
Lurking from TTCAL.. First I wanted to say I am so sorry that you have been through so much..all those pregnancies and all those losses ((hugs)) I am also sorry that you are going through this difficult time again..I will share my story with you.. I had a m/c last summer (Aug.) where my HCG was at 215 at 6 weeks along..they said I was m/c and I started to spot the same day and I lost the pregnancy 5 days later.. Got a BFP in Feb. again..started to spot 2 weeks later..got seen by my OB..cervix was high and closed..no signs of bleeding (except that I was still spotting a little)..they took blood work and the results were 500..they said for a 6 1/2 week pregnancy that was low..they said m/c again..a week went by (spotting everyday) went to the ER to have a D&C (I was tired of waiting for things to move along naturally) so they took blood again and HCG was 1500 but this was a week later don't forget..they did u/s..we saw a gest. sac which measured according to LMP but no fetal pole or yolk sac..they said come back in a week..I did and the HCG had risen to 1700 (which then I knew was inadequate)..they did u/s again and this time there was a fetal pole but still no yolk sac..they didn't want to do a D&C before checking again a week later..four days later I m/c the pregnancy.. From talking with repeated nurses and OB's I've learned that at 6 weeks your HCG should be at 1500 at least..but that does not mean that your pregnancy couldn't end up being successful..some Dr.s even told me that sometimes they will say m/c according to the facts and then it turns around positively.. Here is the link to two charts that I was told to consult when I was asking the ladies here for help as you are: http://www.babymed.com/hcg-level-in-early-pregnancy
I am so sorry that you have had to go through this and that your Dr. is giving you the famous "have to have 3" reply before they will do testing ((hugs)) I went through a m/c last summer (6 weeks along) and waited until my first cycle before trying again..we were not doing anything special to try to conceive except DTD whenever we felt like it so it took us until this January to conceive again (and we started using OPKs in Jan.) BFP in February and another m/c in March..I again have waited until my first cycle (which I am in now) before starting to try again..it really depends on you and how you feel and also what your Dr. thinks..I know women who got pregnant w/o having that first cycle and all is well w/ the pregnancy/baby.. I too am scarred of trying because I do not want a third loss..I am hoping that we both find that lucky turn and that we get BFP's soon!View Thread
