Pregnancy Symptoms Returning

Postby Meggles828 » Fri Mar 15, 2013 12:50 pm

At 6 weeks there was a heart beat and 7 weeks the u/s tech couldn't find one. I haven't actually expelled the pregnancy yet- I had a sharp pain in my lower abdomen the other day but not even any spotting yet. How long does it usually take to start bleeding? Also, has anyone experienced their pregnancy symptoms coming back? My nausea, fatigue and sore boobs really seemed to be all but gone but this morning it's like they all came crashing back. Are my hormones just wonky right now?

Now this next question I'm so embarrassed to ask, but is it possible that my miscarriage was misdiagnosed? I feel crazy even thinking that I could still be pregnant, but is it possible the tech just didn't find the heart beat this last time? I go in on Monday for more tests. I think not having the physical proof that my pregnancy is over is making me nuts.

Hey Meggles, I don't really have an answer for you but when I had my mc my symptoms literally stopped about a week and a half before and I'd just had a feeling in my gut for weeks.

Don't be embarrassed, I remember reading a story in the paper where at a 12 week scan they couldn't find a heartbeat, the lady refused to end the pregnancy and demanded a second scan a week later and surprise they found the heartbeat and the baby was fine! There is always hope!

I'm so sorry you're going through this. :(

I had a blighted ovum miscarriage diagnosed in Sept last year @ 9 weeks pregnant. I had spotting for a week which my doctor said was normal, finally I got an ultrasound and there was no baby, just the sack. I waited 2 full weeks before my body actually miscarried. I then bled for 2 more weeks and was scanned again showing it hadn't been complete so needed a D&C anyway.

It can take a while for a natural miscarriage to happen so if you're willing to wait you could do that, and if nothing happens go for another scan. If you're feeling unsure at all I would seek a 2nd opinion for another scan before organising anything else.

i was just about to suggest a 2nd ultrasound, i dont think one ultrasound at 7 weeks is conclusive enough to diagnose a fetal death. i had 2 ultrasound 2 weeks apart with my m/c last year which was a blighted ovum it wasnt until the 2nd ultrasound i felt i could move on. if in doubt always ask again good luck to you i am so sorry for what your going through

Thank you for all the support and words of wisdom. I'm definitely going to ask for another ultrasound before I decide anything. If there is still no heartbeat (and I feel sure), I'm going to ask for the medicine to move things along. I don't want to do the d&c unless it's totally necessary. I've never had surgery and the thought kind of freaks me out.

I went to the doctor's yesterday and was told they don't do additional u/s once a miscarriage has been diagnosed, but they keeping checking beta levels to make sure they're going down. And with that I was off to the lab. This morning I got a voice mail form the office saying my beta level has gone up, but she didn't say how much. I left a message with the office to schedule more blood work and to hopefully talk with the nurse practitioner. Has anyone experienced their numbers rising after being diagnosed with a miscarriage? I've read this happens with ectopic pregnancies, but when she did both u/s she saw the sac and baby in my uterus- she also scanned ovaries and surrounding areas and didn't see anything abnormal.

*Just got a call back. On 3/7/13 the number was 20,245. They didn't take blood again until yesterday 3/18. The number was 39,759 and I would be around 8 weeks. The nurse practitioner thinks the level was probably higher last week and now we're catching the it going back down.

I know that I'm miscarrying, but I couldn't help but have a glimmer of hope when I first heard the message saying the levels went up. I just want to get past this.

I had another appointment this afternoon. My doctor said it was okay to wait a little longer for things to happen naturally, but it's getting too hard mentally to wait for it to happen. He is going to give me some medicine on Thursday to move things along. At DH and my request, the doctor signed us up for one more u/s beforehand just to be sure. Although, I'm still very sad about the miscarriage I felt good about this appointment. Not rushed into any decision and even though we already know there will most likely be no heartbeat, he set up the u/s for our peace of mind. I'm feeling good about moving forward.

I was given misoprostol last Thursday. After a few hours, intense cramping started and went on for about 3 hours. I passed a lot of clots and tissue. The 2 next days I was crampy, but overall felt much better. Then last night I was up for half the night with bad cramps (throughout the day I had been passing more tissue). And then today I had horrible pains in my lower abdomen almost as bad as the ones right after the misoprostol. DH called my doctor's office, but they just said to take ibuprofen along with the prescribed painkiller. I'm not bleeding a lot (not soaking pads within an hour), but is it normal to have the such bad cramping at this point?

I go in for a followup and u/s on Friday.

Thanks Care! It's just so unfair that not only did I lose my baby, but I have to be in such physical and emotional pain as well. I had to do a second dose of misoprostol tonight :cry: I feel so sorry for everyone that has to go through this. I just want it to be over and to get pregnant with my take home baby.
I have an u/s tomorrow morning and hopefully everything will be out.
