    Default Impending Loss

    My history -

    We got our BFP on 4th March.

    My hcg levels have been -

    4/3 - 173
    6/3 - 445
    8/3 - 879
    11/3 - 1829
    18/3 - 3723
    21/3 - 5475

    LMP was 30th Jan

    I had a scan done on the 11th March, and I was showing as under 5 weeks. No yolk, nothing. Sac was 1.2cm x 0.39cm x 0.77cm.

    On the 18th March, i had a fall, no bleeding but they did a scan just incase. I was told that the pregnancy was not viable, and it was in my tube and I was set to miscarry as I had a blighted ovum. The sac measured 1.27cm x 0.68cm x 0.79cm. An appointment was made for me with a clinic to talk about termination.

    I attended the hospital clinic under the impression it was all going to come to an end.

    The nurse was just as shocked as I was. She not only told me, but showed me my ultrasound WITH the visable yolk sac, measuring 0.34cm and she confirmed with me that the sac was infact in my uterus, its just sitting fundus and to the left.

    This left me with so much hope.

    I then had a follow up ultrasound, and waited for the results.

    I went in with the male tech, he measured me at 5 weeks and 4 days, but asked me to go and drink a little more and wait half an hour.

    I did as I was told and 20 mins later a female tech called me in.

    She dated me at 5w and 1d, sac measuring 1.2cm x 0.86cm x 1.34cm with the yolk measuring 0.45cm.

    I was pleased with this, but then I read the report.

    "There is a gest sac in the fundus of the uterus to the left of the midline with a sac volume corresponding to a gest age of spprox 5 weeks which has not increased in size when compared to the previous study on 11/3. I therefore suspect a negative outcome to this pregnancy".

    I had a follow up app today with the Early Pregnancy Clinic, and was told there is no hope.

    My levels have risen again, bloods taken 8am today, but only to 7341.

    She said this coupled with the fact that the sac has not grown means nothing good and i can expect to miscarry anytime now.

    I really dont know how to feel.

    I had booked a scan for the 29th March, which was meant to be to see the heartbeat with my mother and mother in law attending, now I think it will be just for hubby and i to confirm the loss and to let go.

    Things suck right now.

    Thanks for the support ladies.

    It's such a stressful time when you want something so much.

    I'm trying to stay as calm as possible, continue to eat right, and hope for the best.
