the doc told me that they didn't see the fetus today. all the saw was the sack and the placenta. she is thinking either my dates have to be off (which can't be by much b/c eitherwise its not possible) or a blighted ovum. she's talking dnc. I had a second beta today and go in on sunday to get the 3rd. then a repeat u/s in 7-10 days will be scheduled next week and we'll see where we are at.

I did find out that my first hcg was over 45, 000 consistant with 8-12wks along.

I feel like I'm in limbo, I'm pregnant but sounds like viability chances aren't good at all.

I cant find her posts But I do remember that when she went for her 1st u/s she was meant to be around 6.5 weeks but only measured 4 weeks. But when she went back 2 and a half weeks later, baby was there with a heartbeat and measured 8 weeks.

I hope everything turns out ok hun, I will keep you in my thoughts xxx

thank you!

next beta # 50,773 so they are going up. I might see if the lab has todays # tomorrow while i'm in town. other than that, all Ic an do is what and see what the doc makes of all the labwork and the actual u/s paperwork. and do the repeat u/s when they get it scheduled. I should be about 8 wks now and be about 9 when they do the rechecck. I'm praying baby will be big enough to see then. and not the possible blighted ovum.

Kate, you are right about the girl from the DDC. She was measuring a lot smalller with the first u/s and she knew that wasn't possible but then when she went back for the 2nd she was right on time. I know I have been MIA from the DDC on/off but she is on my board I host and also someone I talk/text with outside of JM.

I had ALMOST a similar situation. At 5 weeks they saw nothing, then a week later saw baby iin there just fine with a strong heartbeat. I had the same u/s tech both times and they said the radiologist wasn't holding out much hope foor me.

thank you all. I've read about that happening and them not being able to see the baby sometimes due to a tilted uterus , slow grower or whatever til sometimes 8-9 wks or up to 12 wks.

my #s at almost 8 wks the last hcg drawl dipped some, I don't know if but it seems a bit early for that. sunday's draw was 48,899. I haven't heard backa bout anyhthing so I don't have the follow up u/s scheduled yet or know what the doc thinks about any of the bloodwork.

I don't have any of the symptoms really that i had w/jan's m/c. though I know it can start anytime w/o warning. I still have pg symptoms. I don't know what to think. I'll update when I have more news. the u/s wouldn't be scheduled til next week anyway. and the more time a baby would have to grow and be seen, the better. I don't think they give me much hope either. none of htem could believe I got pg so quick after an u/s. I think I had 3 comments that week saying as much. my dates can't be off too much. b/c we only made it possible the one time. so w/a 5 day leeway for ovulation and the 5 day give or take for the u/s I guess it could be off some b/c of that.

the waiting is just hard.

well the doctor called me back. she said my #s didn't double. and even dipped which I already knew. she asked me if I was bleeding and I'm not. she asked me when I was to see her next, I told her the 31st and she said not to wait that long ot see her early next week to discuss things and to get that follow up u/s scheduled.

I'm supposing she'll wnat ot do the u.s and if no change, want to do a dnc. but from what I've been reading I dK if I want to do that or wait to m/c on my own.

I'm sorry to hear this. It just breaks my heart. But I think it would be good to discuss ALL your options with your doctor.

Also, on the pregnancy loss forum, there's a subforum of mc/pregnancy loss experiences. You can read through the natural m/c and D&C experiences to help you decide what is best for you.

thank you both, I guess I should move back over there. honestly I've been holding out hope that there is a mistake and that all will be well.

I'll check out those stories before my appt and will discuss w/dh so I'll be pretty informed when I go in. I'll discuss all the options and she seems pretty good on keeping things safe but not doing uncessary stuff so, I think whatever will be decided will be in the best interests for me.

its hard b/c I still have pg symptoms and I want to believe there's a baby growing in there.

That is really hard. It's unfair too.

I am so sorry hun. I've had a blighted ovum too. Just to let you know they can take a very long time to m/c naturally. I had to wait for mine to go naturally (long story) and I was about 15w along when I finally m/c'd. They had told me at 7w that it was probably a b/o.
