Feeling broken (pregnancy mentioned) — The Bump
Late Term and Child Loss

Feeling broken (pregnancy mentioned)

Don't even know where to start... I went for a what I thought was going to be an 8 week sonogram. The technician didn't tell me anything except I'm going to send this to your doctor and write immediate review so you get a call ASAP! That statement put me in a state of anxiety. I asked my fiancé if he was able to see the screen, and what did he see? He said he wasn't sure what he was looking at or looking for. But he didn't see much except the technician writing "yolk".

Turns out, when the doctor called, they can't see a baby or a heartbeat. They only saw a yolk and an empty sac. He said there is nothing much left to offer to check for a baby besides another HCG test to check my levels. He then offered a D&C. I quickly responded I'm not ready to give up and jump into doing a D&C, let's do the blood test and see. We will get the HCG results tomorrow! So I'm trying to patiently, confidently wait for the results. But I don't know how likely it is that this is a healthy pregnancy.

I wasn't prepared for this, I didn't think about how I would feel if we lost another child. I even told my fiancé "if the worst happens, I don't think I want to try for another pregnancy for a while, I need more recovery time".

Sorry for the long post, but I am curious, has anyone else dealt with this and turned out there was a baby, and went full term with a healthy baby in the end? Can everyone pray for us! And share your sweet words. I could really use some encouragement and confidence.

    I am so sorry. Sending prayers your way. I know all too well how the waiting feels. I know they go by your last menstrual period but if you possibly ovulate later or implanted later it can be off by a bit. Waiting it out just a little bit longer could help indicate better what is going on and the HCG levels could help too. It is so so hard and like others have said I am praying that things work out for you.

    I'm so sorry you're going through this.  We had an early loss the year before we lost Kayla, but I can't imagine how hard it would be to go through this after.  I agree with PP, maybe you ovulated a little late and maybe your dates are off.  I think it is a good idea to wait a bit and see what happens.  It's not the same at all, but with this pregnancy I had a huge gush of bleeding at 5 weeks, I thought for sure it was over.  I went in for my third betas and while they did rise, the doctor said they were at the low end of normal, but things progressed well from there.  Praying for good news for you!
