Hi everyone -- I've been spending the past few hours scouring mommy boards and figured I should just try starting my own to collect some advice.
I went in for my 7 week u/s only to find that my ges sack is 5w4d, with nothing inside. My hcg is 14000, and I'm terrified at what this all means. I did have chlamydia about 8 years ago (cleared it up as soon as I found out) so my dr said I'm at a high risk for ectopic. I also have a tilted uterus.
She's monitoring my hcg over the next few days, and all my symptoms (huge tender breasts, nausea, fatigue) are still around. I have another u/s in a week and a half but I'm going crazy and not sure how to deal with the wait. Everytime I think positive, I just realize that reastically the odds are not in my favor and I should be preparing for the worst. Also, this is my first pregnancy.
I'm really desperate for some words of wisdom, hope, preparation....anything to stop crying at this point!
AFAIK, you would not still be getting pregnancy symptoms if the fetus had died, so the fact that you are still having symptoms is a good sign! Also, 14,000 is a great number for 7 weeks. However, I don't know what it means that the sac was empty; surely there would have been something even though a heartbeat may not have been there yet.... (but I am no expert!)
A week and a half is SUCH a long time to wait; I'm sorry you're having to deal with so much uncertainty.
