I'm still in limbo

I had my second ultrasound today. Baby measured 6w1d which is way off. I should be 7 weeks tomorrow. Last Saturday I measured 5w6d. The baby did however have a heartbeatvtoday, but is was very very low. 66bpm. Sad then met my OB Dr. Who was strait out blunt and said I will miscarry. He said I have maybe a 10% chance on this being a viable pregnancy. Wow what a way to be slammed with bad news. He also said I don't need progesterone (mine was 11) and that there is no clinical proof of the suppositories even helping with levels between 5-20. Not sure what to believe with that. He is a new dr.for me Since we moved to this area a couple years ago.

So I said what do I do now. He said "you will miscarry this next week, but we can make an Appt in one week to see if there is a change. If not I will give you a pill to induce a miscarriage." what?? Really? No D&C? Anyone ever have this? I'm not sure if I'm freaking out more about actually having the miscarriage or having this pill. UGh... I HATE this.

For the record no bleeding spotting today, other than some brown early this morning. No cramping either. Wth is going on with my body? Sad

So sorry you are going through this. I unfortunately had a similar experience. Went to the ER when I was 8 weeks, baby measured 6 wks and a couple days. They sent me home after hearing the heartbeat. My bleeding continued so I went back and baby only measured a few days more but no heartbeat. They gave me a pill called "Methergine" along with Vicodin and Reglan. For me......this was hell. They gave the vicodin for the pain and the reglan for the nasea.....but it was awful. The reglan gave me restless legs, I had to constantly be moving and even then I felt like I was going to jump out of my skin. So I stopped taking that but the Vicodin made me vomit all night. And sleep, forget sleep.....I was up all night with my heart pounding out of my chest. I called my doctor and since my bleeding had stopped he told me to cancel all the meds the ER doc prescribed me. This was just MY experience. They gave me the meds vs. the D&C. If you are worried I would definitely seek out another professional opinion. Definitely do what you think is right for you.

Again, I am so sorry you are going through this. Many hugs to you!

First off, SO sorry you are going through this. My very first pregnancy was a similar experience. Baby always measured behind but had a heartbeat so my doc put me on the progesterone suppositories just in case. Well I ended up having a missed m/c and finally at my first OB appt. there was no heartbeat - I had a D&C, BEST choice ever!!!! I wish you the best!!

I am so sorry you are going through this. My last pregnancy was very similar. My baby consistently measured 2 weeks behind and unfortunately I ended up m/c. The u/s doctor was very cold to me and my OB was leaving the practice so I decided to switch doctors and I'm so glad I did! You should definitely seek a second opinion. Don't let your doctor talk you into doing something you're not 100% comfortable with. Sending lots of positive vibes your way! GL and please KUP! :bigarmhug:
