First ill start out by saying I had 2 miscarriages last year. My husband and I found out in march I was pregnant again. I went in for my 8 wk u/s and they saw no hb. I said I wanted a second opinion. I went to get that next morning with a fetal medicine specialist and he said he too did not see a hb and no blood flow either going through baby. I was devastated but still did not want to believe it. No one has taken any blood tests and I have no symptoms of miscarriage at all. In fact I still have my pregnancy symptoms. I was told to schedule a d&c but honestly I just don't want to do it! I have one last u/s on the 1st of may to make 100% sure before I make anymore decisions. Has this happened to anyone else? Am I stupid to hold out hope?View Thread
I am going through the same thing right now I have had two miscarriages last year and now this one I went in at 8 weeks baby measured fine but doctor could not see a hb I then went in for a second opinion on the next day with a fetal medicine specialist who said there was no blood flow through the baby so no hb. I'm still holding out hope because I have scheduled another ultrasound for the first of may the make sure 100% before I choose to go through the d&c. Also like you the doctor says we need to schedule a d&c right after I found out no hb. No one has done blood work nothing and what's worse I still have all my pregancy symptoms no pain no bleeding. How did your turn out?View Thread
