I May be going to have a miscarriage............

Hi everyone, I am sad because I went to the Dr. to get an ultrasound today and they found a sac in my uterus but did not see anything  clearly attached in there, the Dr. told me that I may be too early on to show up on the Ultrasound yet and that it measured 5 weeks which is different than when I thought  I may have concieved, my last MP was 4/21 and I started feeling pregnant at the end of May. Dr. told me not to give up hope yet as it may be too soon to see via ultrasound. She took a blood test to check hormone levels and I get the result tomorrow.  She also told me that I have a 50/50 chance of this working out and to keep up hope.  Wow!  I know what my odds where but I feel so pregnant morning sickness, fatigue, swelling tummy, sore breasts etc... I just don't know what to think or feel now.  But, I am grateful that have 3 beautiful boys and I have that to hold on to, I am dissapointed at the loss of  the possibility of ever being pregnant again sincce I am now 48. I just don't know.

Most pregnancy symptoms come from the placenta, which produces the hormones.  So you can very well have symptoms without having a viable baby.  I am so sorry that this is a possibility.  Good luck!

I am sorry you are going through such stress.  I do understand how you feel, I too have been there.  You are in that wait and see time, and I know that is the worst...the not knowing.  Hang in there, you will have your answers soon.  I hope it goes well for you.

Just got lab results back HCG level good, 11858, they will retest blood 12:30 Thursday and then u/s again 3:00 Friday.  Do you think I should just accept I don't have a viable embryo and it's only hormones?

Good news about the lab results!  Your next hCG will tell you a ton.  I would not accept that it is not viable until they prove it to me.  :)

That's my opinion too! Thanks Annie, I'm just trying to cope today, it's hit me harder than I realized and I am so emotional, I just keep crying.

I'm trying to keep the faith, it's  just so hard after seeing the  sac like that.

Could be a blighted ovum, that is what I had.  Just the sac formed.  Nothing seen on ultrasound except the sac at 9 weeks.  Good Luck, I wish you the best!

Your doctor told you not to give up hope yet - and you said that your Hcg levels were good.  Wait and see your blood tests Thursday and Friday.  Will you be getting another u/s ? Did you have an abdominal u/s or transvaginal ?  I'm sorry for your stress and I know how hard it is trying to keep faith but,your doctor left a small room for hope and - however small - its better than none. Keep your chin up and wait to see what happens.  Good luck to you !

I started spotting  very slightly yesterday and now it has stopped.  I am supposed to go for the blood test today. Thank you so much for your concern. I'll let you know what happens.
