Possible 2nd Missed M/C
I am in the midst of waiting for an u/s to determine if I have in fact had another missed m/c.
I had one in 2006 with my first pregnancy. We didn't find out until 13 weeks that the baby had stopped growing at 7 weeks. I ended up having a D&C.
We had troubles concieving before that and then after it, we were referred to fertility specialists. Thankfully we welcomed a healthy happy baby boy in 2009. We went back to the fertility clinic this year and on our first try again, we were pregnant! But, my initial hcg level was low (47) and the 2nd draw we did was still low (doubled every 3 days). So, we did another draw to see if it was consistent and if it was doubling every 3 days, it should have been at 1500 or so. It was only at 650 :( So, I did another draw yesterday and will get the results today some time. Once we get them, we'll do an u/s and figure out where to go next.
I am so sad and angry that this is happening to us again, but I thank God for my son... or I would be a basket case I think.
We really want to have another child soon as we are both a bit older than the norm and I was told by my Dr that I am already showing signs of aging with my egg supply (he said it's the supply of a 39 year old). So, we don't have much time left....
Thanks for listening.
I am so sorry that you are going through this again.
And I can relate to the ageing eggs...I am 42 this year.
I am 31 and thought I had a few years before I had to start worrying. But my Dr said that we basically have one year before it gets REALLY tough. I told DH that I would rather adopt than to IVF (we do IUI right now). But I guess we'll see...
Sorry you are going through this. I hope you get some answers soon.
I understand feeling the hurry as well....my doctor told me I had about a year before my endometriosis would start to be a problem again and I am also over 35.
I think there is some encouragement in that you were able to get pregnant quickly this time, anyway.
Please keep us posted.
I am hoping and praying for a call today that we can do an u/s ASAP. My parents are coming for a visit next week and they don't know I was/am pregnant, let alone that I am losing it.

I didn't want to post because I guess I don't really know what's going on - maybe I don't belong here right now.....:confused: I don't want to offend the ladies by being here. Maybe I'll just lurk until I know more.
I'm so sorry for all of your losses - I do know what it's like unfortunately. :bigarmhug: to you all!
Did my 5th hcg draw today.... so nervous and scared :(
Numbers went up but not doubling - and level is way below what the minimum is for 7 wks. Giving into the feeling that this pregnancy isn't working out and we'll have to go through the whole TTC process again - drugs, long trips to the city and waiting and praying it works :(
