Hello. I am new here. After 13 years of infertility, I went on Metformin for PCOS and have had 3 m/c's and 1 precious daughter (she is almost 14 months old).

We are pregnant again. According to my FF chart, I should be 8 1/2 wks pregnant.

Two weeks ago, I spotted lightly. I went and got my hcg levels and prog. levels checked and had an u/s. My hcg were normal and went up nicely 2 days later (about 14,000). My prog. levels were dangerously low 9.5. The u/s showed an empty sac. I am now taking 150 mg. of progesterone suppositories. No spotting in 2 weeks.

4 days later, we saw a gestational sac and a yolk sac measuring about 5 1/2 to 6 weeks. No fetal pole.

If for some reason I'm truly behind, that's fine...I can deal with being 10 days behind.

Yesterday I had another u/s and the doctor says he's optimistic. I truly want to be. But all we saw was a bigger gestational sac and yolk sac. He thought he saw part of the fetal pole, but no heartbeat. He said that that I'm measuring 6 1/2 to 7 weeks (so that encouraged him with the growth). Could the fetal pole be behind the yolk sac?

Has this happened to anyone?

I'm just so heartbroken and confused. I don't want to lose another baby.

Update:
I miscarried last night. I feel quite numb right now. I go through waves of sadness.

It sounds good that the sac is growing... tho I would be concerned just the same as you are. I have no advice either... just hoping and praying that it will all be ok.

Do you know what kind of ultrasound machine it was? I know when I was having trouble in the begining, they sent me in for a level II because they didn't think they'd see anything with a normal one. I was 6 weeks at the time. Even at level II it was hard to find anything at first.

Good luck with everything...I have a friend who is due two weeks behind me and her menstrual cycle is the same as mine...GO figure!?! Anyway, when she first went in, they told her that she was miscarrying because they didn't see a baby, only the yolk sac...Sure enough, two weeks later, they saw a heartbeat and the beginnings of a baby...It was just way too early to tell....I am not saying it is the same, but strange things do happen sometimes..I'll keep you in my prayers.

I would think you definitley have to be optimistic if there is growth...I know it's hard, but try to stay as positive as you can. I am praying for you. Keep us updated.

I just wrote this to a girl from DDC March....

Quote:
I went to see the doc at 5w6d and we saw the baby and the heartbeat perfectly !!!!!!!!!

All was itty bitty, but it was definately there.....

Then one week later at 6w6d I went in again and the doc couldn't find baby or heartbeat ......I was devasted !!!!!!!!!

All of a sudden he said....."Oh here it is and here's the heartbeat !!!!!!!!"......the baby was hiding all the way in the back of the sac so my doc almost missed it !!!!!!

Maybe (hopefully) this is why they can't find your baby's heartbeat yet !!!!!!!![/b]
I'm kinda thinking that you are in the same situation.....your HcG went up and the sac is growing.....that is a great sign !!!!!!!

I know it's hard having to wait, but I bet next Friday you'll be the happiest woman alive !!!!!!!!!

Good luck! We will be thinking of you and your baby. Maybe your ff chart is just wrong and the baby is right on track.

The gestational sac grew only 1 or 2 mm in 10 days and the fetal pole (my precious little one) did not. Needless to say, there wasn't a hb. I am now waiting to miscarry. It is strange as I have no cramping or bleeding. I can't believe I now have 4 little ones in Heaven.

Dawn I am so sorry - and so sorry I didn't see this sooner. I know how hard this is all too well & wanted to offer you love & support & an invite to join us on the recurrent loss board. It is a great place to vent all your feelings right now & to talk about all the stuff that comes along with so many losses. I wish there was no need for such a board - but it is a great solace when you do need exactly that. I wish you peace for your heart & send you much love. PM me anytime if you want to talk.
