I've been lurking the boards on here for a few days now and haven't found an answer to this question, so I thought I'd throw it out there. Little bit of background info first:
I suffered my 1st MC back in December and then got a BFP back in February. Went for a 6 wk US and everything looked "fine" according to my OBGYN. Went for my nurses visit at 8 weeks for family history and blood draw. They didn't test my HCG levels or Progesterone but apparently everything they tested for was ok. Went for 10 week appt with OBGYN on Friday. Had a doppler done and couldn't find a heartbeat. She said that wasn't unusual at only 10 weeks and I also have a tilted uterus, making it difficult. Decided to do a US instead. After fiddling with the machine for 5 minutes she questioned me about how far along I actually was. She said that the gestational sac looked normal but the yolk and fetal pole didn't look much different than it did on my 6 wk US. She sent me away and told me to come back in 1 week for a follow-up US but things didn't look good. I haven't had any spotting or cramping like I did with my first MC. I'm not in denial or really too optimistic. However, I have decided to get a second opinion because I felt like she really didn't care and she rushed me through my appointments. What is the point of designating women with a high risk pregnancy if you aren't going to do anything different than you would for a normal pregnancy?
Anyway, I know the "rule" is usually that they won't start doing testing until after 3 MC, but that's ridiculous. I am not going through this blindly 1 more time just so that I can qualify for additional testing. I am just wondering what sort of tests they can do to find a culprit for reoccurring MC? I definitely want to have my Progesterone levels checked because I have thought for a long time that I suffer from most of the symptoms of low levels.
Any advice or experience is much appreciated!!!
