Pregnant after a Loss

Small Victory (Betas) **Update**

I hate when people post their concerns, but then never come back with updates.  To recap, I had low, but doubling betas and super low progesterone, with very light bleeding.  Last beta was 833, the new number 3 days later = 1830.  So, I'm still doubling, but still low relative to gestational age.  Also, my progesterone is up from 3 to 9.  That's still very low, but I hadn't started on progesterone yet.  

My big concern now is that after my OB visit and blood draw on Friday, the light bleeding from the past week increased, and went from brown to red.  I bled and cramped all weekend, but it wasn't as bad as with my MC's.  The cramps have eased up today, but I'm still bleeding red.  The only thing holding me together is prayer.  I also keep telling myself that it takes time for bleeding and cramping to start after a MC, but through all of the bleeding my numbers have continued to double. 

I go back to the OB tomorrow and she plans to do an U/S, so please send your T&P's that we see something good and find a positive reason for the bleeding.  Has anyone experienced rising betas with bleeding and cramping?

  • Any update? Have you had your ultrasound? I had bright red bleeding last night but have nice, high and doubling betas too. Keep us updated! Still got my fx that everything looks perfect!

    The ultrasound didn't show anything, but the OB thought she saw a very small sac.  Given the bleeding got heavier, signs were pointing to miscarriage.  However, I've been waiting for beta results before reaching a conclusion.  Unfortunately, the nurse called today and said that my beta had taken a small drop, so I think it's clear that this pregnancy is over.  I was devastated after the ultrasound, but now I think I'm just relieved to have an answer.  I think I'm going to take a break from TTC, and just focus on getting myself healthy. 

    I wish all of you ladies all the best in your pregnancies, and hopefully I'll join you again in a few months!
