I haven't been on this site for some months now. Hubby and I were trying to conceive (PCOS is a factor), until earlier this month we made the decision to stop trying for a couple months and stop stressing about it.
Last week tuesday i started cramping in my lower abdomen...like bad period cramps, and I started spotting thursday morning (My period ended a week prior to this). Pain went away when I sat down and would hurt once I was up and about.
I went to the doctor on Friday, and was sent to do an ultrasound to check if any of the cysts had ruptured or become enlarged.
I did the ultrasound Saturday morning and that resulted in a whirlwind of emotions for the entire day. While doing the ultrasound I was asked to take a pregnancy test.
I was told to wait outside for the ultrasound results to take back to the doctor. I figured the test was negative because no one spoke to me.
I get to the doc's office and the lab calls me to say turned out the test was positive and the radiologist tells me the doc has to do a D&C because I have an incomplete abortion.
So...I had to hear over the phone that I did conceive, and I lost the baby.
I wasn't doing very well after that call as you can imagine.
The doctor instructed me to wait for the GYN that was coming in in a few minutes to get his professional take on it.
The GYN saw me and read the radiologist's report, and informed me that the conclusion does not match the findings.
So basically, I may be pregnant and am losing the baby (miscarriage), or the pregnancy is threatened or completely normal.
I then had to go to another lab and do the first of 2 blood serum blood tests to determine if my hcg levels are rising or falling.
I took a pregnancy test while at home yesterday and both lines came up. The positive line a little fainter than the control line, but both are there. My nipples are sore, and I felt nauseous couple times yesterday.
I don't know what to think at this point and am really just hoping and praying I am in fact pregnant, and that this little being inside me is going to be ok.
Also, I haven't had much cramping since last friday when I saw the doctor.
Any thoughts anyone?? I could really use some advice or feedback.
I'm so sorry you're going through this. In my experience, some medical professionals can be very insensitive to miscarriages because they see them every day. They forget how extreemly emotionally painful they can be... even when you didn't know you were pg.
It suprises me that they recommeded a D&C since your bleeding had stopped. What did they say about what they saw on the US?
I'm sad to say, that even with a + HPT that doesn't mean that the bean will stick. The blood work is important and I SO know how hard it is to wait those 3 days for answers. I hope you get great news with your second blood test. :)
Hi, thanks for responding...I really need people to talk to about this.
The US showed a small amount of fluid in some cavity or something...I dont remember the term used. But my GYN said that that is neither here nor there since after ovulation a follicle bursts etc...so that could be the result of the fluid.
That's why he ordered the blood tests. I just came back from doing the second one, so now its a day and a half of waiting. Sigh.
I was spotting red yesterday evening....nothing for the first half of the day, and nothing since last night. Cramping is basically gone...so I'm hoping these are positive signs. I took a second preg test today and it came back positive again...showed the results in 3-4 minutes.
My nipples are also sore.
And to be completely honest...If I hear...if its meant to be one more time I will scream.
:bigarmhug: I am so sorry you are going through this. I hope you get your results back sooner rather than later and, of course, I hope you get some good news. Some medical professionals really should be reminded that they are dealing with people and that something that is "routine" for them might be life changing for a patient.
Thanks so much :)
Question...I'm feeling quite nauseous...can I take this as a good sign?
Nausea is definitely a good sign. I was thrilled to feel sick when I was pregnant because it was a good sign that my hormones were doing their job. That being said, people can also have normal pregnancies without any nausea. When will you get your second beta results back? Will they do another u/s soon?
Hi, well...no nausea since waking up. Nipples still very sensitive.
The blood test results will be sent to the doc's office today by 3pm, and I see him at 5:30 :(
I have to wait a whole day to know what's going on *sob*
I'm not sure if he will order another ultrasound. I guess it depends on what the tests say.
Please keep me in your prayers
:bigarmhug: im so sorry your going through this !! I hope when your results come back they are positive !
went to the doc. Blood hcg dropped from 721 on saturday to 666 on monday. This is not what the doc wanted to see. We were very hopeful that it would double. He's ordered another blood test in a week to see if the levels are rising at all.
I don't know what to think or how to feel right now. Doesn't help that I'm cramping since this evening and just saw red spotting instead of brown spotting from earlier.
someone...anyone...talk to me please.
:bigarmhug: I am so sorry your hcg didn't rise.
