I am new to this site and never really expected to be able to post a story similar to many of the other miraculous success stories on here. But I'm thanking God that I can!!! Thanks to this site my baby is alive!!!
A few weeks ago I found out I was pregnant. My husband and I were thrilled. We have a 17 month old but she was hard to come by. Before her I went through 2 miscarriages that were very hard and emotional.
Anyway I went to the ER with pains in my right side at 7 weeks and was told that they saw an empty sac and were concerned that this could be an ectopic pregnancy. They would not let me return to work for the week as they ran tests and I saw 2 other doctors. I did a hcg level at first that was 13,000 then 2 days later went to 22,000. They said it wasn't rising fast enough and all the ultrasounds showed no sign of baby in the uterus or the tubes. They did inform me that I had a tilted uterus which I was never informed of with my last 3 pregnancies. I was told that the sac was too big and that a baby should definitely be visible. By my eigth week I was told a DNC would be the best decision.
I went home and researched the subject finding this website. I was so happy to have some hope. I felt so pregnant-- having morning sickness, heartburn, extreme moodiness, frequent urination. I just felt so pregnant and it felt wrong to have the surgery. I still felt there was a chance. Well I asked for another blood count and ultrasound. To my surprise they found a baby with a good strong heartbeat!!! I had already began accepting the fate that this pregnancy was a failed one and when I heard this I was screaming and jumping. The blood count turned out to be good news too!!! Thanks to everyone on this site.
