At 6 weeks, I had an ultrasound and the dr saw an empty sac. He wasn't overly concerned, thought maybe my dates were off and had me come back in a week. At 7 weeks, the sac was still empty and it was diagnosed a missed m/c. I would now be 9 weeks, 3 days and I am STILL waiting for a natural m/c. My hcg levels are still rising:
I realize that these are not the numbers of a healthy pregnancy, but I am getting frustrated that they won't start going down. On 5/21, I had a higher level ultrasound which showed the empty sac in the uterus and nothing in the tubes or outside the uterus. My doctor seems to think they are plateauing and it should happen naturally soon. I got a second opinion from a different OB, who agrees with my dr, but thinks that a D&C wouldn't be unreasonable at this point, possibly followed up by methotrexate if needed.
I am just SO sick of waiting. I've been dealing with this for 3 weeks and I just want closure. I've had spotting after my exams, but nothing consistent. It has gone from brown to pink, but is still starting and stopping.
Has anyone else experienced something like this? How long did you wait? I think if nothing has happened by Tuesday, I am going to request the D&C. I can't take much more of this.
