So today is the day you go see your old OB is that right? I hope the appointment went/goes well and I will be on again later to check for an update..I hope you get a beta count today..that would offer peace of mind..but I do think you're fine too View Thread
Maybe there isnt anything to be worried about but still I am also happy that you are going back to your old OB and that you can have some peace of mind at least for the Dr. you're going to be seeing..are you still getting a beta this week?View Thread
Well Im actually feeling quite positive about your situation right now..everything you've mentioned to me in the last few posts sounds good especially since you've have no bleeding or spotting whatsoever..I wouldnt consider the little bit that you did have anything to worry about since you say it was only when you wiped..when I miscarried naturally last summer it started like that but within 1-2 days I was in need of a pantyliner. I am keeping everything I have crossed that this all turns out well View Thread
I definitely think it could be the vanishing twin theory happening and your Dr. answering you what he did wasnt right. He is rignt that they cant see anything on u/s, your HCG needs to be at 1000 at least for them to see anything..when I miscarried last august that is what the ER Dr. told me, prior to 1000 they cannot see anything. If you, yourself, physically are feeling fine that is good at least. What about the spotting, is it still going??View Thread
Well the fact that it went up slightly might be a good thing although it went up very little so that's a concern..from your 1st to your 2nd beta your HCG went up almost 200 in about 2 days, proof that all was going well.. Then in about 3 days time it went down over 200, never a good sign..and then in the last 5 days it only went up 40, another bad sign.. A pregnancy usually doubles every 2-3 days so the fact that you've lost so much HCG along the way and that you haven't doubled at all since is pretty telling.. Now checking online for your situation I came across 2 possibilities: the 1st of course is as you've mentioned before, the vanishing twin..that could explain the drop and now the rise in your HCG levels..the 2nd thing it could be is an ectopic pregnancy..apparently levels can drop and then rise with an ectopic but the common factor of an ectopic pregnancy is that the levels don't rise fast..20% of women who have had one are more at risk of having another and since your levels are too low they cannot check via u/s to see if that is a possibility.. Only repetitive beta checks will let you know.. I will keep you in my thoughts and prayers hoping that I am totally wrong and that things will turn out positively for you. Try and have a good weekend, relax and try to distract your thoughts (not an easy thing to do) and if you need to talk I am always checking in..GL View Thread
Hi Hope how are you? I dont know if you remember me from last year when you went through your ectopic I was around then..I had lost sight of you and was happy to find your thread in the last few days but am now saddened by these more recent developments..I am so sorry that you find yourself at this crossroads again..I am also hoping with you and for you that this might just be a situation that will turn out positively. Did your Dr. tell you when he would be checking on you again? Maybe a repeat visit at the ER would offer some peace of mind since they could run another Beta on you and let you know whats going on..again, I hope it all works out..please keep me posted and take care.View Thread
