Hi,

Today I went in for a 6w4d ultrasound and there were two empty & deformed gestational sacs measuring at 5 weeks.

This makes my 3d miscarriage.



I don't know how I can cope anymore. DH and I are even questioning trying again - ever.


---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

So today I was going in, convinced I would be told to get a D&C, that my pregnancy was over. I had been crying constantly for the last 5 days. The doctor hadn't left me with much hope last time, I was measuring 3 weeks behind, a week and a half if you counted from my (late) ovulation. There was no yolk sac, no fetal pole, no heartbeat. Just 2 deformed sacs measuring at 5 weeks instead of 6w4d.

Well, today, 5 days later, we saw this. We saw a heartbeat.




Our baby is measuring at 6w4d, which is a week and a half more than 5 days ago, and only 5 days behind now.

Our baby has a heartbeat, which we saw flickering and we got to hear it!

The doctor said the tech was wrong, there never were 2 sacs, just the one seen at 2 different angles (there were NO pictures with both) and she said he was wrong to leave me hardly any hope.

It took a minute to sink in that I was seeing our baby since I was so prepared for nothing at all!

She went over the rest of the appointment, everything is progressing normally apart from that slight lateness... Which doesn't sound like such a big deal anymore, she said that measures aren't so precise before 12 weeks anyway. I'm not too worried, baby has caught up 10 days in 5 days' time.

I am SO SO SO happy!
Now to get some sleep and stop the junk food again (I needed comfort food).

Thank you sooo much for the encouragement, I can hardly believe it and being on here these last few days has helped keep me sane. Thank you!! I'll join the pregnancy section now.. Looks like we may have a rainbow baby after all

I'm SO sorry for you losses...Nothing can compare to the pain you are left with.
I'm glad you found this board because we know more than anyone how you are feeling right now.
My name is Amber, DH & I have been TTC#1 for 2 years now & have had 4 losses.
I hope you find some inner-peace soon to help you through this.
We are here for you!
Have you had any testing done, as to why you are having RPL?

I'm so sorry for your losses. The feelings you described are all perfectly normal. I do suggest giving you and your husband time to grieve before deciding whether or not to try again. I think we've all had those moments where we feel we are DONE.

Has your doctor mentioned doing any testing? If not, I would suggest asking. We have a sticky with a list of the common tests and can answer any questions you have about them. Also in the stickies, you'll find a thread with our stories. Hopefully, this will help you not feel so alone during this time. And, lastly, you'll see a thread titled important dates. I'd like to encourage you to add your family to the thread so that we can keep you in mind on the difficult days to come (and celebrate the joyous ones with you).

Thank you so much Augie and Amber.
To answer the question, my first two losses were both before 5w, so there was no testing done on the actual pregnancies, but I did get some blood work after the 2d loss (I insisted).

I tested positive at 1:640 for antinuclear antibodies
and borderline positive for antiphosphatidyll ethanolamine IgG & IgM antibodies
I also have chronic fatigue and joint pain so I'm thinking Lupus or RA.

I have an appointment with a specialist in internal medicine for September to look into that more, and I was put on prednisolone and baby aspirin for this pregnancy.

I also have PCOS, mild enough to ovulate late and irregularly, and my RE plans on using injectibles next time to get a better quality egg.

I also have a moderate LP defect so I was on 200mg of progesterone.

I'm hoping that if I do get a d&c next week, they can analyse whatever they can (the doctor will give me another ultrasound first just to make sure, the girls on TTC #1 suggested that sometimes twins are slower to grow and maybe I was misdiagnosed, so I guess maybe I'm too quick to consider this a loss? I don't know if this is denial or crazy hope or if they may actually be right. I got the ultrasound with an ultrasound tech since my doctor is on vacation until next Monday, so I can't even talk to her)

First of all, welcome. Though I hate to have to welcome people to the board I'm glad you found us, and hope you can find some comfort here.

There are few things more devastating than RPL. I know all too well that feeling of being DONE. It is a frustrating road to travel.

I'm Amber (26) married to Jonathan (27). Through our 4 year TTC journey we had 2 early losses and the 16 week loss of our daughter, Sophie. I was sure that I would never try again, there's only so much the heart can take. My DH convinced me otherwise, and very reluctantly I tried a 4th time. I was put on baby asprin and progesterone and in Jan 09 we finally had our little rainbow baby, Grace.

Like Augie said, if you feel up to it emotionally I'd encourage you to put your story in our stickies. Sometimes just writing it out to people who have been there can help you feel so not alone. I hope that we can hold your hand through this very difficult journey with you knowing that you are not alone.

Hum I'd better make a better intro.
My name is Lex (23) DH Daniel (23) and we have been married for 2 1/2 years and TTC for a little more than a year.
We've had 2 losses so far this year and our 3d is imminent. There may still be hope (I just found a story online which I'll quote here that does give me hope :

Quote:
I went in at 6 weeks and had two empty sacs. No fetal pole, no hb..
Baby B passed due to a SCH and Baby A is a healthy boy; I'm now 27wks.

I think an empty sac at 6 weeks is perfectly normal.
I'm just such a mess right now I don't know what to think. And my cramping isn't helping. No bleeding yet though.

I agree that is completley normal not to see a baby at 6weeks...Is your HCG going up at a normal speed?

I really hope & pray it's just too early to see on the u/s & you aren't infact, miscarrying.

Kup!

I also hope that the doctors were mistaken! It sure wouldn't be the first time. I pray that this is indeed your rainbow baby! Either way, you're always welcome here.
