    Default Confused and Anxious, possible m/c ?

    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

    **********************UPDATE********************** *****

    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 have been ok, except for the occupational stomach ache every once in a while. I have not had actual bleeding, so i guess that might be a good sign.

    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.

    It went well, but the earliest that I might have the results is tomorrow. I'll KUP.

    OB appt showed still an empty sack, but since my HCG levels did doubled he rather wait until
    Monday to make a decision. If nothing develops by then, he'll have to perform surgery to get it removed.

    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!
