So I had another appointment on Wednesday, and got a mix of news... Things have definitely taken a strange (but still not so good) turn. First, the baby DOES have a heartbeat now. BUT at the first scan it was measuring 4 days behind, and this time it was 8 days behind... Grew only 1 day in 5 days and measured 6w1d, when I was actually 7w2d. My RE was pretty candid that he doesn't think this will go much further.

Also, we found out that its likely a cornual pregnancy...which is basically an ectopic that is in the corner of my uterus. If it were to get bigger than 12 or so weeks,
So how are you doing? When do you see the Dr again? Is a D&C the only option they are giving you if things don't seem to pick up & move along on their own or did he offer something like methotrexate?

I am sorry for your situation & all the further worries involved in these types of losses. I was not aware of the term cornual pregnancy & by this point & all the reading I've done I *thought * had heard of everything just about. It's a tough one & I am sorry you are going through it.

Much love to you!

You know, I'd never heard of the term "cornual pregnancy" either. It's apparently pretty rare...only 1-2% of ectopics are cornual. It's basically right where the tube meets the uterus, so it's not an area where the uterus is meant to stretch, I guess.

I'm hanging in there OK. The morning sickness isn't helping though... I feel nauseous all day, and it would be bearable if I knew there would be a baby at the end. But there won't be, which makes feeling ill that much worse. Overall, though, I've been in a better place emotionally these last few days. I'm just really trying to take everything in perspective. I put so much pressure on myself to get pregnant right now, and the self-imposed time pressure just wasn't helping. So I'm actually looking forward to taking a break from all of this and finding some new things to obsess about for a while.

I have my next appointment with the RE tomorrow for an ultrasound. The RE doesn't do D&Cs or any kind of medical management--he basically just gets you pregnant, then turns you over to the OB. So tomorrow we'll know whether the baby has passed yet, whether it's grown, and where exactly it's located. Then on Thursday I have an appointment with my OB to talk about the ultrasound results and what treatment options I may want to pursue. Depending on how ectopic it is and how big it is, a D&C may be the only option if we need to make sure we get it out fast. If we have more time to work with, then maybe medical management would be OK.

At this point I'm really confused about what I want to do. I'm afriad my previous D&C is the reason this one is ectopic in the first place. Plus, I had retained tissue for 2 months after the D&C, defeating the whole point of the procedure (which was to get the m/c over with quickly!). But on the other hand, I've heard how painful it is to m/c medically or naturally, and I really don't want to see my fetus at home! I'm wondering if there's a way the OB can do a D&C with ultrasound guidance or something, so that she can see exactly where the tissue is so that she doesn't leave anything behind this time. ANyway, these are things I'll talk about with her on Thursday. Thanks for asking!

I haven't had the time today I thought I would, but wanted you to know I got time to take a peak. I will have more to say tomorrow, but I am at least glad you'll get more answers tomorrow. KUP

I will, thanks. I know it's going to be rough when I get to the RE's office today...even though I know that it won't be good news, actually SEEING it will be a different story.

On the plus side, we're going to NY this weekend for a wedding and at least now I'll be able to drink myself silly. I just hope I don't start to m/c while we're in NY, since that would be really bad timing.

Well, today took a strange turn. My RE no longer thinks its ectopic, so that's good. The baby was still alive and heart was still beating, so that's good. It was measuring 5 days behind, though, so that's not so good. But it was 8 days behind last time, so I just don't know what to think anymore. The RE still thinks we're more likely to miscarry than not, given the discrepancy in size (there is no uncertainty about our dates since we did triggered ovulation and 1 IUI). Now all we can do is wait and see. I hate waiting and seeing. I was also getting used to the idea of another m/c... not that I WANTED to m/c, but I came to terms with it and started to accept it and focus on new things. Now I'm back to obsessing and anxiety and stuff.

Well that's fantastic they no longer think it is in your tube!!! I know Augie (she's around somewhere) lost the corner of her uterus due to where her ectopic implanted last year.

Hopefully the fact that your baby is still hanging in is a good sign!! I will keep my finger crossed for another good update!!!
