Hello, I live in Los Angeles, Ca and I would like to tell my story. We have been trying for 5 years and finally got pregnant with the help of the IVF and Egg Donor, without any positive results and now I don't want to loose hope or give up despite the Dr. is saying there is none. On July 28, 2011, I had 3 embryos transferred or blastocysts. On August 8, I received my FIRST POSITIVE! With HCG level of 83, from there I started my nightmare, so far I've had 6 HCG labs, every 2 or 3 days: My HCG levels were: 83-103-333-1308-1865-and 2148. HCG didn’t double all the time but has continued to rise slowly. On August 23, I had my first vaginal ultrasound and the doctor saw a very tiny empty sac, that day the doctor said that the sac was very small (only 6 mm) and with six weeks I can not had a viable pregnancy. Four days later on Sunday 28, exactly one month since my embryos was transferred I had another ultrasound where the doctor after trying to find the sac, showed the same empty sac it showed last Tuesday, he said that it is a very small sac and I was diagnosed with a blighted ovum, he told me my sac was measuring shorter than it should have been for 7 weeks pregnant, and that the fetus never made it, and assured me to schedule a D&C ASAP and that I must suspend the medicines (progesterone and Vivelle-estradiol patches) I almost begged him to leave me a little longer with the medicines because If I suspend the medicines, this will cause a imminent bleeding. The doc is putting me at 7 weeks. According to the date I had my embryos transfer I should be about 4 weeks. My question is why my doctor says that I have 7 weeks pregnant, if I just turned on Sunday 28, one month since they put the embryos in my body? I ask him and he just answered that is the protocol?? What should I do: to continue with my meds and wait longer or not? I have some symptoms of pregnancy but my doctor says are caused by the medications I'm using. Please help me, what I need to do?
