We went to see Fertility Specialist but got pregnant on our own after initial appointment. LMP was May 8, pregnancy test confirmed June 12. My cycle is 35 days.
Fertility Specialist wanted to do U/S and blood work every week for first 12 weeks...we felt so lucky to be getting such special treatment.
First u/s showed empty gestational sack and they said I was 5 weeks. Based on my 35 day cycle I told them I should only be 4 weeks, they said the size of the sac confirmed 5 weeks.
Second u/s was last week. Gestational sac with yolk sac, no fetal pole...beta reading was 10,000...they said I was 6 weeks.
That night I got a call on my cell phone from a nurse at the clinic telling me that I will miscarry...things aren't developing the way the should. I asked her that maybe I'm not as far along as they think, she said no they were right and this pregnancy is not viable. They wanted me back next week to do an U/S and discuss my options. She discussed D&C and that if I happen to miscarry on my own to save the tissue and bring it in to the office for them to test it. It was like she was telling me I needed a new fanbelt in my car!
I was a complete disaster!!!
I called the office the next day and spoke to another nurse asking her if they might be wrong...she said no and that I need to come to terms with the fact that this pregnancy is not viable.
I was researching this on the net and came across this website...you saved my sanity for the week. If it were not for this site I don't think I could have been so positive. Your stories made me feel like was was hope and not to give up.
I went in for an U/S and blood work today...saw the fetal pole and heartbeat of 115...beta levels good.
Next week will have a chat with the doctor and discuss their office protocols...I work in the dental field, we don't even tell a patient that they need a root canal over the phone...there are just some things that should be said to your face by the doctor not some nurse over the phone!
I think technology can be our downfall...too much too soon! 5 weeks is WAYYYYY too early to be making any judgements.
Have hope and I will pray for all of you that are going through the same hell!
