Hi, If you go by my last period I should be 7.5 weeks preg. but if you go by when I think I conceived (the wk of 6/15) I'm only around 5.5 weeks. Went to the OB 2 weeks ago and we saw a gestational sac and a really healthy (according to the Dr.) yolk sac. No fetal pole, no heartbeat. Told me I was very early into my 6th week...sent me for another round of bloodwork. My HCG went from 2,000 to 8,000 in two weeks but my progesterone dropped from 17 to 10.7 in two wks. Put me on Progesterone suppositories hoping it was just that my body wasn't producing enough. Went back to OB this past Friday...a week later from last time. Had 2nd transvaginal...this time we saw the fetal pole and it measure 6.2wks when according to last period I should be 7.5 wks. Still no heartbeat...Dr. said she wasn't pleased with what she saw esp. that my progesterone had dropped and things didn't look good. I think it is too early...she said we'd give it another week, do another u/s and then talk about D&C. I don't think I am 7.5 weeks I think I am much earlier and that may be why there is no heartbeat (maybe I'm just in denial and holding out hope). Is there any hope that this pregancy will be ok. No bleeding, breasts are still very sore, very gassy, hunger has increased but not ravinous, tired but not exhausted. I'm driving myself crazy over here...if someone can please help! Thanks...JPView Thread
