Should I give up all hope?
I'm having a really hard time. My partner and I were lucky enough to fall pregnant the first cycle trying. I think I ovulated between the 22nd and 25th of August. I got a positive test 2nd September. So between 8-11dpo.
Around tje 12th September some symptoms started. Sore breasts and fatigue. These faded and disappeared by the 15th.
I began to feel like something was wrong. We had the dating scan on September 29 with should have been 7 weeks. The crl only measured 5.5 weeks and no heartbeat was detected. The technician was not worried and said dates could be off.
My dr on the other had said that in order to get that positive test I would have definitely been 6.6weeks and bun would have heartbeat.
I had blood taken and HCG was 23000 48hrs later it dropped to 22000. My dr said this is a bad sign and she is 99.9% the baby didn't make it.
I'm so shattered and just want this to be over.
As I haven't passed the baby I'm still clinging to this hope but I don't want to be crushed again.
I would like some opinions and would like everyone to be honest.
Are all of these signs pointing to a missed miscarriage? Would anyone else still be hoping? Has anyone had a similar experience? I would like to hear then no matter what the outcome was.
Sorry for the novel. I'm just so devastated and any support would be welcomed.
