Posting for the first time in hopes of staying sane until Monday morning when I go for an u/s.
I have 1 healthy 3 year old boy which i am grateful for. Following him I had 2 first trimester miscarriages in 13 months. After 8 months of trying we we started seeing a fertility specialist. Nothing was found to be "wrong" making the doctor assume my recurrent losses were due to egg quality. The day before we were to sign on for IVF I took a positive pregnancy test. I am now 6w 5d pregnant being monitored weekly.
At my 5w appt my HCG number was rising appropriately and my progesterone level was in a healthy range. Gestational sac and yolk sac were seen on u/s. 6w 0d there was fetal growth - a heart beat could be seen. Bloodwork came back and my progesterone had dipped slightly. My HCG number also did not double in the 7d between appts. I am now on progesterone but obviously concerned.
Doctors are telling me that they pay more attention to the u/s and fetal growth and I shld try not to obsess about the numbers.
Has anyone had something similar?
