Miscarriage?

Postby Jooley » Sat Jul 12, 2014 10:30 pm

Hey everyone. My DH and I have been ttc since April. My lmp was June 4th and I got my first positive test when I was three day's late for July's period, which was due July 2nd. The next three days I kept getting positives, with the line getting darker each day. On the 7th, I started having weird pains behind my pelvic area, like a bruised and swollen feeling.

The next morning I woke up with bright red blood and more cramping and pain. I had small clots and a fairly heavy flow all day that day. Wednesday I had no bleeding and no pain. Pretty much the same thing on Thursday too. I got my levels checked and my hcg was only 80. Friday I went back and they were 146. My doctor said that my cervix is open and it's not supposed to be when you're pregnant. She said I'm having a threatened m/c and it just hasn't happened yet which is why my numbers went up?

I go to my OB on Tuesday to once again check my levels. I'm hoping she will give me an ultrasound, too. I'm also praying that my baby will somehow beat the odds and make it. Does anyone have experience with something like this? Low numbers and open cervix at 5 weeks?

I have no experience with open cervix and threatened miscarriage.

How did it go with the appointment? Did your OB do the U/S and confirm?

Tuesday my number was 420. I went back today and for an ultrasound to check growth and ectopic, as well as another blood test. My numbers went down to 226 and my ultrasound showed "no products of conception". My ovaries looked clear and my uterus did as well. Monday I go back for another blood test but my midwife feels that it should be under 100 and continue to fall.
