Yesterday I went to the ER due to cramping pain on my stomach and constant vomit. They told me I had an empty sack and to follow up with my OB. I cried the loss of what I thought was becoming my baby.
Today I called the OB office and was told to come in ASAP. I went in the evening and he told me it can be one of three things : completely empty sack, bad development of the embryo, or really slow development. There is no heartbeat or anything yet, so he drew blood today and I am suppose to go back Monday for another blood sample that they can compared today's with. I just want to know already
6 weeks 2 days - 11,711 mIU/ml
6 Weeks 5 days - 21,632 mIU/ml
They told me it is low and I need to follow up with another scan tomorrow.
Oh Aurora I am so sorry to hear this. Other people have mentioned on here that they had the slow development & their children are perfectly healthy. I hope that is what you find out Monday. How are you feeling physically?
I'm so sorry. Miracles can happen, so don't give up hope yet. With my second pregnancy, I had a 6wk u/s, and I was absolutely certain of my date of conception (there were no other possible dates). The u/s showed NO sac, no nothing. 34 wks later, I gave birth to a 10lb 10oz baby boy. I hope that slow development is what's going on for you too.
KUP and keep your chin up. ((HUGS))

I've had a lot of experiences with miscarriages and ones also where I thought I was going to miscarry but didn't. Sometimes no sac was there and sometimes there was a baby there, sometimes there was a sac but no baby, and sometimes everything was just ok. I've always had a little bleeding at least. With my missed miscarriage I had a tiny bit of spotting that I JUST happened to see. Thinking it was nothing I found out at 9 weeks I had to have a d&c.
I'll share a story with you and hope this is something at least for you:
When I was pregnant with my first baby, I went to the dr about where you are. I was 100% of my ovulation date so I was sure of how far along I was. So, I went to the ER with some bleeding. They did an ultrasound and told me there was nothing in the gestational sac, nothing at all. They did a transvaginal, so I believed them despite my HCG levels being pretty high, like 17000 or something. So I went home devastated thinking I was miscarrying. The bleeding stopped and then nothing, until the following week or so. So when I started spotting again I went to the same ER and they said they already did an ultrasound and ruled out ectopic so that's it. So I left, and I went to a different ER. They did a transvaginal u/s and there was my baby with its beating heart. I measured exactly where I knew I was too.
Typically the heart beat comes just around 5 weeks so SOMETHING should be there. But the girl couldn't find it and she was under a lot of pressure and worried. The machine was excellent too. But for some reason it just couldn't be seen. I kept spotting off and on for the rest of my first trimester and found out I had a subchorianic bleed. That does add some risk to miscarry, but thankfully everything was fine.
please keep us updated, hugs

Waiting has been the worst since I still have some weird symptoms. Extreme nausea where I can barely eat sometimes, and today I have a pain on the lower right front side and back lower back pain on that same side. At this point I am a nervous wreck and wish that I could just know already what is going on.
I was wondring how your appt went today with your blood draw? I hope you are feeling better.
Were you tracking O? and you totally sure of your dates? Even a few days off can make a huge difference.
Fingers crossed for you!
