I am wondering if anyone else has experienced the same as me. I had U/S last tuesday at 9 weeks and told no heartbeat(missed miscarriage) hcg level 53394. 2 days later hcg was 66656. Now 4 days after that they rose up to 85283.9.
Yes,It was a transvaginal,but my doctor said that she wanted me to get it done again with a better machine and by a qualified radiologist. Hmmm? Does that mean that the lady who did it in her office was not a radiologist and their machine is old? Sounds like it. Also when she did the U/S she was all over the place and never stayed in 1 spot. It was very fast and very weird.I have had alot of ultrasounds and this one only took about 4-5 minutes at the most.
Your Dr is right to suggest another u/s. A radiologist is an MD, a specialist in digital imaging. The woman in your OB's office may be a tech or even just a nurse with experience with those little roll-around u/s machines.
Do you know if you have a tilted uterus? That can make it difficult to see the baby sometimes & easy for him to hide too.
Stay positive until you know for sure. Read some stories here. They will definitely help!!
