Hello All....I have been reading through this website for many months and it really has been such a comfort. This is the first time i'm posting. In December 2013 I had a miscarriage. When I went in for some spotting at 6 weeks 1 day they did a sonogram and the midwife said "the heart beat is slow". She wasn't discouraged, but I was......8 years ago I had two miscarriages and her words really stuck with me. Needless to say, no one pushed any intervention until about 11 weeks where my hcg had dropped. I couldn't schedule a d & c that day, but the next day I went into natural miscarriage. Unfortunately, it wasn't until a month and a half later that my hcg went lower than 5. I still had a tiny bit of retained tissue, and once that expelled it was finally over.
So I was very surprised to get a positive hpt in April. I went to see a doctor, they took labs and my hcg 658 at 4 weeks 4 days, and then 13826 and progesterone at 15.8 at 5 weeks 4 days At 5 weeks 4 days, the doctor could only see a gestational and yolk sac. I was to see her in two weeks to follow up.
So this past Saturday I had some light brown discharge, only a tiny bit on my underwear. It was kind of thick and sticky. And since then, brown spotting and brown stringy discharge when I wipe. I went in to see a doctor yesterday. She did an abdominal ultrasound and said she could see gestational and yolk sac but nothing else. When she did a vaginal ultrasound, she couldn't see anything (no sac no yolk). Also, when she took out the probe she saw the brown discharge, and she said "It's brown so it's old, it's a good sign". So she sent me for an official sonogram later that day. I went to the place where they have better equipment, and then tech said all she could see was an empty gestational sac measuring 8 weeks. She did this vaginally. She asked if i had bleeding and I told her yes (although I don't know if I should consider brown discharge when i wipe bleeding). She said she was sorry.....but nothing was there. She was very nice, but she basically said that nothing had developed and she should have seen something.
I find it strange that the doctor could see a gestational and yolk sac through abdominal, and then transvaginal the tech could only see a gestational sac.
So at 6 weeks 6 days....what should I think? My boobs are still sore...I do have brown discharge when I wipe (but i really have to wipe sort of hard to see anything). Only gestational sac was showing. My hcg levels were high when then checked last. I believe I'm pregnant and I want to wait a week before I go back. Is there a possibility that something can develop until then?
I thank you all in advance for your responses. I'm 34 years old.....no children....multiple miscarriages....If I do miscarry I'm going to schedule an appointment with a specialist soon.
