Everything was going perfect..until today


#1

:babydust: I was so excited when I got my first BFP…all I could think about was in December before Christmas I would have the best Christmas gift ever. Now my dreams are beginning to become shattered!

I was at school taking my stressful finals and all of a sudden I felt a gush of blood. I went to the rest room and could not believe my eyes. I called my husband and immediately drove myself to the ER. There of course my pregnancy was confirmed but on the ultrasound they seen no fetal pole just two sacs😢 empty.

My HCG’s were 4900 cervix closed but I was bleeding so bad. I am sure I had a miscarriage, but hoping I’m not but I feel in my heart I am. I am scheduled for my RE to do an ultrasound on Monday. I really don’t even want to go and see another empty sac I would just prefer to get my HCG levels to see if they could possibly rise. This is so heart breaking but for some reason God is keeping me strong and sane.

Please keep me in your thoughts and prayers.
I really hate posting stories like this , I love to read and post positive things but this is all a part of this fertility world and I did everything right…no sex, fruits and every color veggie, vitamins and ugh…

I am so sorry to hear this…I myself had a miscarriage a few weeks back and know how Upsetting it is to see so much blood!

Take care of yourself…:grouphug:

@webelieveinmiracles Hey! I just love when u comment your always so positive please keep me in your prayers I need it


#6

I am not so sure. Not so sure at all.

Seen cases just like yours that go by “mommy” now.


#7

Stay positive, your not quite 6 weeks by my math, and it’s normal to see just sacs at that point. I will keep everything crossed for you but normally if you have a miscarriage like that they would see nothing on the us. Fingers crossed for you.


#8

I wish the best for you. I had a big bleed at 9 weeks with my twins, I was also sure I was miscarrying. They are now almost 18 months old. How far along are you? You might be too early to see a heartbeat. Could they find the source of the bleeding? I am so sorry you are going through this and hope you get good news Monday.

This can happen with twins, Kay, so don’t despair. Remember, twins put a lot of extra strain on your body. I’m in a thread with a woman who just went through this very same thing, but WORSE. She’s still pregnant with her twins:

@ Ghost that would be perfect if that happened to me but it wad so much blood…ugh not like brown implanting but BRIGHT red I’m still being hopeful of course, but I am preparing myself for the worst…thanks for your comment I hope this is the case
@ jennjack11 I am trying to stay positive with the help of my fertility pals…lol I am standing strong although my knees are beginning to buckle
@jedibonas aww I am so happy your still pregnant ! It’s so horrible when you see blood I am hoping and praying for the best.thank you
@demian I hope this is what’s going on but it was huge clots as well…if this situation turns around truly it will be a miracle!

Sorry to hear you are going through this. Hope you don’t mind me asking a few questions…

  1. How far along were you when you went in to the ER? (If less than 6 weeks…you are not supposed to see much other than a sac and maybe a fetal pole…no heartbeat yet.

  2. What type of ultrasound did they do? The equipment that they used can make a big difference.

I pray this is going to work out for you! Sometimes twins can measure a little behind. The fact that the sacs were still visible is something to hang on to.

Also, I had some bleeding early on and later found out that I had a HUGE subchorionic hemhorrage. Many women who have these bleed a lot early on. The specialist thought I would for sure lose the baby (it would have been the fourth miscarriage at that point), but I didn’t and my little guy just turned three a couple weeks ago :).

Not trying to give you any false hope, bright blood is not normally a good sign, just want you to know that you don’t have to give up!!

@Brit1612
Thanks for your comment and concern and I don’t mind the questions at all.

  1. I was maybe 5 weeks and 4 days…they only seen a sac and no fetal pole

  2. They did a vaginal ultrasound so they could better see the regular ultrasound they seen nothing

And if you don’t mind me asking when you had your miscarriage at 5 weeks how long and how much did you bleed any clots?

I pray it works out too but I just don’t know

Thanks again for your thoughts and prayers

Oh and did you have any cramps


#13

I am terribly sorry to hear this from you. This IVF business is way too stressful for any couple. I wish for a pleasant miracle for you.


#14

A woman I cycled with the last time had an SCH and was on bedrest for most of the first trimester. She went on to deliver triplets. I am praying that all will be well on Monday. Take it easy.

When I had my first two miscarriages I actually didn’t bleed at all. (until after I already knew it was over) At about 5 weeks all we saw was a very small sac, went back at 6 weeks and it was still the same small sac (no bleeding or cramps) Ended up having a D&C.

Second miscarriage lasted a bit longer. We were able to see a heartbeat at 6 weeks, but once again the sac measured very small, and the heartrate was pretty slow (compared to what it should have been at that point) Had another ultrasound close to 8 weeks and the heart had stopped beating. This was the worst experience out of everything we faced. We were naive enough at the time to think we were home free once we saw the heartbeat at 6 weeks. I was shocked when I found out the heart had stopped beating (no cramps or bleeding at all). After that ultrasound I was instructed to go off all meds and a few days later, I started to bleed. It was [B]really[/B] bad pain wise for one night, lots of clotting, after that it was just like an average period. Can’t remember exactly how long that lasted.

Third miscarriage was also around 5-6 weeks. This is the one and only one that I bled [B]before[/B] finding out I lost the baby. This was also the only one that had high (really high) beta levels. The other two had low betas from the get go. Basically it just seemed like my period started. (I have a feeling my progesterone level may have been too low with this one.) RE thinks this miscarriage was a fluke, unrelated to whatever caused the others.

Sorry this is soo long! The only time I really had miscarriage like symptoms was with the subchorionic hemhorrage, and everything turned out fine! You just never know in this crazy world of infertility.

@ HumDucky …thank you very much. IVF is a beautiful thing it allows us who have problems conceiving it gives us hope of one day becoming a mother. Sometimes its challenging but in the end you can receive the best gift ever…while in the process meeting lots of friends , greet staff and more.And learning the anatomy of your body is so awesome! So good luck I will keep you in my prayers

@Brit1612… Wow that was a lot to go through and I admire you cause you didn’t give up we have to be fighters!!
That was so weird that you had not any signs and when you did everything was fine. I am so happy for you and appreciate you taking the time sharing your story you give me so much hope!
I am actually on my way to get my BETA checked…ill keep you updated. I just want to know if my numbers are going down…I will:grr: feel so much better. I just couldn’t go through the entire weekend wondering and hoping and thinking. So I begged the nurse to put in an order to check my HCG LEVELS!!!

@Niliah , I have heard so many stories like this and have been googling like crazy, I hate I’m bleeding but hope it applies to ny situation but in my heart…it just does not feel so promising

@hemlata yes it can be VERY STRESSFUL sometimes I just try to keep my head on straight because sometimes I just want to pull all my hair out and throw in the towel…but us IVF gals we are FIGHTERS!! THANKS so much for your encouragement
