I found out I was pregnant on January 22nd with the last missed period of December 24th or so I thought. On January 31st I started spotting brown eventually turned in to red on the 4th or so of February I start to freak out I call my doctors office, they asked me to come in the next day, and they do a pelvic exam everything is fine I do have some bleeding, the cervix is closed all looks well. because of the bleeding they decide to go ahead and do an ultrasound they don't find a sac, they're little confused as I should be about 6 weeks at this point. they call me the next day to give me my blood test results my HCG is around 2800 and progesterone is low at 5.4 of course the prognosis is not good the doctor does explain to me the risks and says I should rush to the emergency room that evening and get a D&C. Well, I don't believe that I should do a D&C so I tell him I'll think about it and decide to wait it out at home, thinking that a miscarriage is imminent. I have light bleeding for about a week or so. I decided I wanted a second opinion, I go the practice where I had my first baby. I explained the situation and of course they can they do a full pelvic exam and ultrasound. I'm so excited they see us after the fetal pole then they continue to tell me that they don't see a heartbeat. the gestational sac measurement it's about 10mm and fetal pole measurement is approximately 5mm. they do tell me that I'm measuring 6 weeks not the actual 8 weeks that I think i should be. I'm a little confused I really don't know what's happening with my baby is it okay that there's no heartbeat at this stage in development. my hcg levels haven't really moved, roar to 3400, the progesterone on the other hand decreased to 2.
