thought i'd start my own thread instead of hijacking
so some of you may know through other threads ive posted in, i had my first routine scan last thursday
according to my lmp, i should have been 8w2d, but the scan was measuring at 6w2d and no detectable heartbeat. ive not had any bleeding or even spotting AT ALL. i think if i'd had any bleeding i'dve been able to accept it.
i returned to my gp the next day (friday) who was very negative, saying the pregnancy was not going to continue & that i should get a d & c done straight away, and booked another appointment to see him monday, just to see if i'd 'come to terms with it yet'
i asked if it could possibly wait for a little while as i had read a lot about women who have no hb on first scan returning the next week to find one. he was very dismissive, reluctantly gave me a referral for another scan (havent done it yet) & said there wasnt much point. i had to very strongly request a repeat hcg.
on saturday morning i went in for my results, which were still high (29,000). i saw a different doctor, being the weekend, who agreed that we need to do all we can to confirm a m/c before doing anything as invasive as a d & c.
so another sample was taken, which i got my result for this morning, and its still 28,000 - a drop, but no way near as big as he expected for a m/c.
he wants to keep checking my levels every day & repeat the scan. and as much as im glad ive seen someone who wants to pursue all avenues before calling it quits, i'm still without an answer or closure.
the waiting sucks. if its over, i want to know, so i can do what needs to be done, move on & start over again
