I am so sorry, this is awful. There could be nothing worse then a loss. Be strong. I can't imagine what you might be going through...
I hope that I don't have to have a vaginal u/s...
And I have a vaginal u/s scheduled for tomorrow! I have always tolerated the vaginal u/s pretty well when they looked at my ovaries for all my IUI cycles.
TeddiH, I am so sincerely sorry for your loss. I can't imagine what you're going through. You're in my thoughts and prayers.
Just wanted to let everyone know, I did m/c and it did happen on the 14th, the after the v/us...

I would not put too much into all of this. I have a friend with slow raising hcg levels and one twin died and she's 21wks today. at 5w after IVF. she had a level of like 700 with twins. One was dying but at 7wks I think it was low as well. They said the neither twin would make it. Well she's 21wks with one twin. SO good Luck. expect the worst but hope for the best!
Im sorry you are going threw this, 700 is low being in order to see something on u/s levels should be at least 1000 or more. There are women who have low rising hcg levels and still have a normal pregnancy. I assume you dont have any previous hcg levels from when you first got preggo. I would wait until the results 2mrw to compare your levels. If they are going down that would not be a good sign but anything is possible.
I will keep you in my prayers, keep us informed on your results.
here is a suggestive hcg levels

Well although that doesnt make me feel much better, thank you!
My first pregnancy was totally normal in every way, with the exception of my labor....
well, i know that mine went from 5000 to 0 within a day.
i dont like the trans vag ultrasounds. i have bled after every single one ive had. i am supposed to have one done this thursday and i am really debating on if i am gonna do it or not. i really associate it with miscarriage, although many many people have them and have not had this happen.
