They were unable to do genetic testing. There wasn't enough "material" left in the uterus (though I hadn't bled any?) to test and they cannot test Baby B (Samuel) because ectopics are abnormal anyway.

He gave me a new pain med. I skipped a dose of pain meds yesterday because of the side effects and the pain not being THAT bad. When skipping the dose the nausea got REALLY bad which made me worry that it was from withdrawals so I decided no more. I talked to the doctor today and he had no problem with me not taking the Percocet but wanted me on SOMETHING.

He also told me to double my anti-nausea med.

No trying for two cycles. No sex or work for six weeks.

Thanks to Jaidynsmum for my siggy!

I didn't realize ectopics were abnormal. I'm so sad they can't get you answers, especially since Katherine had passed early.

I hope the new meds help you.

It makes me so mad that they can't test to see what the deal is! I hate this unexplained crap! I hope you get some answers soon or at least find peace somehow to get past not having answers.

How sad they can't do any testing! Was it because it was an emergency situation, and they needed to worry about your health first before worrying about an intact sample from a D&C? I remember my RE telling me that even with a D&C they had to be careful about the sample, especially at 7 weeks, because the baby/placenta is so small and delicate.

Lisa, I think it has something to do with the fact that Katherine's sac had completely collapsed prior to surgery. I think it had just deteriorated too much.

I am sorry. I remember the first loss I took everything in because they said they could do testing. They also said I could have everything back after. Neither was true. The testing was inconclusive due to degredation & they said there was nothing left to return. I felt so devastated. I don't know what I *thought* would happen, but not that. I had no idea that testing wasn't usually possible with ectopic pregnancies. I know now that testing is usally ineffective on natural losses since the mc itself often happens several days or more after the baby has passed, so the ability to grow cell cultures is compromised. Now as far as you saying that you hadn't really bled & there wasn't enough tissue for testing for katherine, I had something kind of similar happen before I pregnant for Isaac. I had a full mc without any bleeding at all. It was so weird, but they even did a trans vag u/s & said there was nothing there anymore - nothing. I never bled at all. I never knew such a thing could even happen, but he said it is possible sometimes for your body to absorb everything - so I guess that is what happened to me there. It was a very strange experience since it felt almost like "nothing" happened & I had imagined it all or something. It doesn't seem possible to be pregnant & then just not be pregnant & have nothing at all happen.

Much love to you hun!
