I was told a few weeks ago to expect my second miscarriage this year. I had bleeding and extremely low and slow rising HCG levels (180 - 19 dpo, 232 - 22 dpo, 322 - 24 dpo, then suddenly 2,159 - 31 dpo).
When it jumped the last time, they brought me in for an ultrasound and the yolk sack measured 5-1/2 weeks when I should have been almost 7 weeks--about a 11 days behind. Two and a half weeks later, we saw a heartbeat and fetal pole that measured 8w 4d--catching up, now within the 5 day margin or error. Last week, I had an ultrasound that showed 10 weeks, right on schedule.
I'm just wondering, has anyone else experienced this kind of scary slow growth, and was the baby OK? I'm thrilled that things have apparently turned around, but I'm just worried that, although things look to have caught up, something is wrong with the baby. I think about it all the time and my doctor has sort of skirted the issue, avoiding giving either reassurance or discouragement.
If you've had a similar experience (preferably resulting in a healthy, happy, 10-fingered, 10-toed baby), please, please let me know.
