I'm new to this website, and I am glad that I found it! It is good to hear all these wonderful stories of hope.
Currently I am in the unfortunate state of uncertainty with my pregnancy
I was tested positive back around mid-July by having hcg = 42. Doctor reckoned it was 3-4 weeks, though to be honest, personally I thought it was more like 1-2 weeks.
Had my first US on 4th August (supposedly around 7 weeks or so based on doctor's initial estimation), straight away told it was a non-viable pregnancy
US report said I have a retroverted uterus. hcg level around 42000 at that stage.
Did another blood test about a week later, hcg dropped to 29000, and doctor is sure that it is a miscarriage, but told me to have another US to confirm.
Three days later I started bleeding. Not much, just a little bit of brownish discharge with some clots occasionally. Another blood test a few days later (one week from last blood test), hcg dropped again to 25000.
Did my second US, according to doctor's initial estimation supposedly at around 10.5 weeks, saw a sac with no baby inside.
The last couple of days I started bleeding even more (though still not much more than what you have during a normal period), but it is much more red instead of brown. So far, despite all the other symptoms, I haven't experienced any pains whatsoever. Today I have been feeling slight cramping, not sure if it is because I'm too worried?!?
Doctor keeps telling me to get D&C as soon as possible as he reckons there is absolutely no hope, but I don't want to believe that. I mean, he may end up being correct, but for my own peace of mind, I want to wait a bit more, not wanting to rush into anything that I might regret in the future.
Not putting my hopes up too high since I seem to have all the "bad symptoms", but not giving up hope just yet either, so was just wondering if there's anyone out there who experienced something similar and ended up with a positive result? I would love to hear your story.
Anyway, just want to thank you all for being a positive influence for me in this difficult time, please remember us in your prayers.
