so sorry to hear that she is going through this.. yes its definitely possible for them to be wrong.. if she thinks thats she is only 5 weeks 1 day, then at that point you shouldnt' see a heartbeat yet. Its always a good idea to get a repeat ultrasound in one week and see what has happened during that time, if they are still growing on track then it might be that they just measuring the gestational sacs wrong, which definitely happens ..Good luck!
Thank you so much for commenting us back. She's sleeping right now and I'm a nervous wreck waiting to hear about the blood work results she had today. I'm thinking the doctors are not going to call me tonight and I'd have to wait till tomorrow. I love my daughter and want whats best for her. I get mixed adviced. Some say to wait atleast another week, and relax and see what the numbers are. Others say take her somewhere else and have them check her. A part of me wants to take her elsewhere to be seen and retake the ultra sound. She wouldnt be 6 weeks until wednesday. I guess the hardest part is waiting. With so many complications I'd rather be safe then sorry.
Yes all the waiting can be horrible.... and its all out of our hands which is also hard.. My dr's office wont' even ultrasound us until 7 weeks since the heartbeat can't be really guaranteed to be seen until then, so thats the advantage of waiting, though its impossible not to worry.. GOOD LUCK!
well the doctors office called this morning. they rounded her blood level last thursday to 30,000 it was actually 28,000 and some. yesterdays blood level was 33,000 almost 34,000 not doubled. taking her to ER today and hopefully they will set her up with and OBGYN. She has been only seeing a regular doctor. Will keep you posted!!
At ER. Still 1 sac 2 poles measuring .8 in size about 6 weeks 1 day. No heartbeat yet. Cervix is closed still(good sign). But HCG level fell from 33000 yesterday to 29000 today.having another beta hcg done in 2 days and will see an OB doctor too. Not sure if its a miscarriage.
My OB also said that she doesn't like to do ultrasounds 'till at least 7 weeks, to be sure to hear a heartbeat. I really hope everything's OK for you!
...Er rather for your daughter!
Thank you for commenting. Everything is in God's hands now. Just waiting! I'll be sure to let you know about Thursday. its just so hard being told to wait! Thanks again
It is so hard to wait on something that is so important! I do think it's not a bad idea to get a second opinion, pending how Thursday's visit goes. Less than two days to go!
P.S. Your daughter is lucky to have such a supportive mom!
Ok. Today is the day we see the OB. Waiting patiently but anxiously to hear what they say. We will be leaving in just under 2 hours to drive the hour to the office. Anyways I just want to take the time to thank everyone who has been there for us so far through all of this. It has been a trying 2 weeks for us. I know God never gives us anything we can not handle but sometimes it seems so much harder. I think today we have equipment that let us know we are pregnant way before the time to naturally know, and sometimes machines and doctors make errors. But no matter what happens, I know my daughter and I are alot closer then we were before, something I never thought possible. See you all later..Wishing the best!!!!
ok the HCG test still shows around 29000 a tiny bit less then Tuesday and the OB said she had no chance. So if the doctor is right we will no longer be here. Cait doesnt agree with him. She is still not showing any signs or anything. Taking it day by day. Thanks for all your support. Have to run to work..gonna be late!
I am so sorry to hear about your daughters story, but never give up hope, docs and lab results arent always right, keep trying and testing. If she has no bleeding, I would keep trying, Sometimes the other twin could be gone while one still remains. Dont give up.
I'm so sorry to hear your news. Hope you still check in, whether things work out or not! Maybe your daughter is right, you never know. Mother's intuition?
Prayers Needed: tomorrow is another day for the doctors. The whole work up, HCG and u/s. Hoping something gives us some sort of clue as to what is going on. Cait and I've discussed things and we have decided if her HCG levels are down and there's no change in the u/s we are going to ask for help with the miscarriage. PRAYING for the best, expecting the worst. Cait says its not that she dont believe it, she just doesnt know what to do or think anymore.
PRAYERS NEEDED FOR SOME KIND OF SIGN ONE WAY OR THE OTHER
I'm sorry you're going through this stress! I know it's very hard to wait. Please keep us posted. We'll be thinking of you
How is she doing? What's gone on?
Cait had an emergency d&c on FRiday. She's very sad and emotionally a reck.. She went back to school yesterday. She seems so sad and cries alot! its very difficult to watch her go through all this pain and sorrow. I'm just praying she'll come out of it ok. She's overwhelmed with every kind of emotion, and then is being pressured by her teachers to make up all her missed work. sorry but I'll be unavailable for a while so I can concentrate on her and work. Hugs to all of you! Best of luck to those of you who have joined recently. May God bless you all with Joy and Peace
I would go in and talk to her teachers, and let them know that they need to cut her some slack. Maybe tell them that this is really an emotionally rough time for your daughter, and if she could have some extensions that it would be SO appreciated. Maybe just go right to the principal, because the principal can talk to the teachers. Anyhow, I am so sorry for you and your daughter's loss.
Already took care of that. The guidance counselor sent out a letter yesterday afternoon to all the teachers asking them for an extension on her back work. Some of the teachers have been really great!! Some not so great! Will find out later today what they all said. Cait seemed a little more relaxed last night. I just keep praying for her. I tell her to take it day by day and each day go step by step! She's a very bright student. She will be able to accomplish it! I keep praising her and giving her positive feedback. Thanks for caring
