Found out I was pregnant on 1-8-15. Due to my history of ectopic I pushed for HCG testing. My first 2 numbers came back ok but not great. Then after that they were not good. Not even close to doubling. Finally got to see a dr. (Long story very bad service for a drs office) She had then do an ultrasound at 5w 5d. Saw a very small sac. Not even measuring 3w. Continued blood work and had another ultrasound at 6w 6d. Saw a sac measuring 5w 4d. But nothing inside. Continued doing blood work. At 7w 3d I stated bleeding. It was a Tuesday. Had another ultrasound. Sac measuring 5w 5d and a fetal pole with heartbeat. No one was expecting that. The next night the bleeding got worse along with the cramps. Went in for another ultrasound on Thursday and it was confirmed I was miscarrying. It's been a very stressful 4 weeks of not knowing and feeling like no one in the dr office even cares to talk to me. Just thought I'd intro here.

****living child mentioned****Thank you everyone. It has been a very long 4 weeks. DH didn't want me to tell anyone and he works away. So it was me and me and me. Oh and my 2 year old DD. Who has no clue or care about what was going on. I am considering switching dr offices. There is no reason I should have to justify HCG testing with my history. And no reason when explaining my fear of another ectopic that a dr should EVER ask if I want it ended. EVER!!! I'm still numb I think. I am sad and the never ending Fb pregnancy announcements don't help. But I'm not crying much, or doing the "what ifs" I'm wondering if I didn't become attached due to things not looking right and with all the stress. I hope I can be a source of help here as well. Waiting for my follow up on Friday. Hope she gives us the ok to try again soon.

I'm so sorry for your loss. Being in limbo is the worst. I only had a week of limbo hell, and it was the hardest week of my life. I found that once it was finally confirmed and surgery was over I could find exhale and begin the grieving process. Lots of (((hugs))), nobody should have to go through this.
