We had a totally normal pregnancy with our son, who is now almost 2 1/2. We got pregnant quickly with our second, but miscarried - I had no indication at all that anything was wrong. We went in for our 12 week appt and ultrasound and there was no heartbeat, ultrasound measured 7 weeks. No bleeding, no nothing. D&C was necessary.
We are pregnant again, about weeks along. I'm a total mess. I am tired but have had no morning sickness, which is totally different from my son (I was sick all day every day for the first 8 weeks). I was not sick with the pregnancy we miscarried. I made the mistake this morning of taking my basal temp, which is significantly lower than what it was a few days after a positive test.
I don't trust my body at all right now. I don't know what is going on. I'm terrified and a general mess. Does the temp mean anything? I threw the thermometer against the wall and then into the trash can but the damage is done. Now I have cramping that doesn't feel like pregnancy cramping but more like menstrual cramping. Unless I'm totally imagining it.
Does the drop in temp mean anything? I know it is too early for a ultrasound to check heartbeat - my doc wants to do one around 8 weeks which I didn't want to do in case they could see anything. Is there anything they can do to check viability at this early stage? Blood draw for HcG? Is it still doubling at 5 weeks?
You need to go see your doctor. I'm surprised he doesn't have you come in sooner with your history. I honestly can't say about the temps b/c I had just started temping the last cycle. Just one temp is not going to tell you much though. It's the pattern you need to look at. Call your dr.
