Introduction — The Bump
Miscarriage/Pregnancy Loss

Introduction

I've been lurking for a few days and decided to introduce myself. I've gotta say I'm grateful for this community already. I've learned a lot.

My story: We've been TTC for 5 years and got pregnant from the 2nd round of IVF (technically 4th try, but only the 2nd time I made it to a retrieval). At our first ultrasound on 6w2d the tech saw the gestational sac and yolk but no fetal pole. The RE said it may have been late implantation and to come back back in a week. At the next ultrasound we saw the heartbeat (117), but the baby only measured 6w2d and the gestational sac only measuring 5w2d (it actually shrunk). We were told it most likely wasn't a viable pregnancy and to prepare for the worst. Today (8w2d) the baby measured 7w1d, the gestational sac hadn't grown, and the heartbeat dropped to 85. RE told us this would definitely result in a miscarriage. The RE gave me the option of a d&c or waiting for a natural miscarriage. 

Our journey has been so difficult, and I always knew miscarriage was a possibility, but I really thought it was going to happen this time. 


TTC since 11/09
me: 39 DH: 36  dx: unexplained (ugh) 

January 2011 - December 2012: 4 cycles w/Clomid; 9 IUIs w/Follistim & Menopur;  two IVF cycles converted to IUI (poor response/dominant follicle) 

August 2014 IVF (antagonist protocol: Menopur, Follistim, Ganirelix, dexamethasone): 13 eggs, 9 mature, 8 fertilized w/ICSI; 0 frozen, 3 transferred day 5 = BFN

October 2014 IVF (micro-lupron protocol: mircrolupron, Menopur, Follistim, dexamethasone): 8 eggs, 4 mature, 3 fertilized w/ICSI; 3 transferred day 3 = BFP! Beta 1=121; Beta 2=287; Beta 3 =678. Miscarriage @ 8w2d. :(

  • I am so sorry for your loss. It's so hard, especially when it takes so long to get to that point. Be kind to yourself and so many *hugs* to you. 
    I am not sure how to say this without getting a "solicitation" warning so I guess I just say that I am not longer active on THIS site. 



  • Thank you all!!! The "process" started today. No pleasant at all. @FutureMrsBaldwin2012‌ I remember your story from the Acorn group. Sorry we're here together. :(

    Married 10.03.2014
    TTC the day we were married
    BFP October 2014 - Due 7/2/2015 - MMC discovered 12/1/2014 (D&C)
  • I'm sorry that we found ourselves here too. I've been bleeding for a week now, saw my doctor yesterday and he cancelled my d&c saying that my body is taking care of it naturally. I hope the process goes quickly for you. Motrin and a heating pad were my best friends during the worst of it.
