So, this morning I had some more dark red spotting, so I called my OB and told them it was bleeding. I am sick and tired of "waiting", so they brought me in to see the doctor today. Doctor said everything was old blood, but I have a slow trickle, and labeled me a threatened miscarriage at this point. I had a beta level drawn today, and will have another one drawn on Thursday.
Then I had an u/s this afternoon. We have a beautiful heartbeat of 126 bpm! I'm measuring 6w3d, about a day or so behind my EDD. Anyhow, we were so relieved to see the hb and thought all was well until my OB office called. Apparently the u/s was inconclusive at this point on whether or not the pregnancy is viable. The positive was a strong fetal hb and pole, and the fact that I'm measuring right on schedule, the not so positive was a "strange texture" at the bottom part of my uterus near the baby. The nurse said it was inconclusive at this point what it is, and we basically wait to see what my beta levels do on Thursday. Apparently it could be anything from a vanishing twin (I guess this is the good outcome), or that the baby didn't implant properly and that I will go on to m/c at some point.
Anyhow, so no definitive answers at this point. I am so thrilled for a hb, but now I am scared to death something will happen to that little bean if it's not implanted like it should be. At this point, I'm pretty numb over this whole pregnancy. I feel completely exhausted and would just like to know one way or another.
Thanks for listening. :confused:
**Update!!** - Well, I just got my betas back from a little while ago, and they are going up, up, up! I was at 84,000 on Tuesday, and 109,000 yesterday!! So, no doubling, but they didn't expect that since my numbers were already so high. The nurse I talked to this morning said she's leaning towards vanishing twin since my numbers are so high for where I am gestationally, so that is good news! And they are very, very positive about this pregnancy, now! I'm a little bit relieved! But, I won't be totally happy until my next u/s, which is the 14th! I'll be 8w3d, and they're just going to check up on the baby's growth and the bleed in there.
So yay for climbing numbers!
