  1. Shasta,

    Shasta, Glad to hear things are looking up for you. Sounds promising. I found the following information on line about heartbeats. To me, yours looks to be in the normal range. Cautiously optimistic is good. I think that is where I will be for a while myself.

    Week 5 80-103 bmp
    Week 6 103 - 126
    Week 7 126 - 149
    Week 8 149-172.

    AFM, I am going in for an early ultrasound tomorrow. I have had some more spotting. Thursday it was brown and yesterday it was red. It completely freaked me out. I know it is common, but to see it is very scary. I called the nurse and she told me to come in for u/s Monday morning. She was not concerned b/c my hcg numbers are so healthy but she felt an u/s would help me to be less anxious. I will be very relieved to see the sac or sacs in my uterus. Also hoping to see a heartbeat or heartbeats, athough it may be a few days too early, thus the reason I looked up the heartbeat numbers.


  2. Beth, Congrats on your u/s results. That is great that you are measuring right on target. Sometimes health care professionals can be so flippant with the information they present. Don't they realize how scary any mention of m/c is. I am trying to get plenty of rest and make sure I stay very hydrated. that seems to be the advice people get to prevent m/c. I figure it definately can't hurt. I am starting to realize that this process is a huge waiting game which can be very challenging. I am trying to brainstorm some activities that will help me keep my mind off all the "what ifs" that are preoccupying my mind.


  3. Sadly, I do not have good news. I bled this weekend and went in for u/s this morning. No sac was visable. HCG dropped to 3,000. THey told me to stop all meds. I am miscarrying. They have no explanation. I am wondering if it is time for me to give up.


  4. asteria...i can't believe it. i am SO sorry. everything looked so promising for you. i just...i'm just so sorry. big hugs coming your way.

  5. asteria- Big hugs to you. I am so sorry. Please give your self some time. I know this cant be an easy time.... (((((Hugs)))))

  6. asteria - Oh, NO! I'm so sorry that this happened to you. I am so sorry. Take care of yourself and know that you have alot of women thinking about you and sending you lots of hugs and prayers.

  7. asteria, I am so sorry to hear your news. Sending hugs and prayers.


  8. After a very trying week following the bleed, then a beta that increased but didn't double... we had an U/S today, and there was the little peanut snug as a bug... heart pounding away. I couldn't help but burst into tears, expecting the worst. Haven't had any additional bleeding, Dr. says that there is a bleed in the uterus but it does not pose a threat. She said just to expect a possible bleed in the future, and to not freak out. Baby measured 7w2d which seems a couple of days ahead??? Not sure what that means.

    Thanks for all you support and encouraging words!!!


  9. YAY Steph! I have been thinking about you and was worried cause you havnt posted! I am soooo happy for you! The bleeds are very scary. I have one too. Hang in there and CONGRATS!!!!!

  10. asteria- I am so inncredibly sorry. I know how hard that is and I just am so sorry

  11. forgot to mention we had u/s on monday and we have a heartbeat! We did see a second sac but it looks lilke it stopped growing so we are a little bummed but feel very blessed that we have at least 1 heartbeat. I started spotting again yesterday morning and last night I think from having my cervical exam and ultra sound it just was a little to much. I spotted a bit more this morning so I went in to see Dr again this morning and he said everything looks good just to rest and I have another u/s scheduled for next thursday to make sure everything is good.

    do we have anymore u/s that we are waiting on??

    Hope everyone is doing well!!!

  12. Great news Mel!!! Sorry about your second little bean, but one healthy heartbeat is still quite a joy. Try to take it easy. See you over on the PG board .


  13. Thanks steph!!!

    Where is everyone have you guys moved over to pregnancy boards?? Its quiet lately
    Should we all start a thread over there??
    Hows everybody feeling???


  14. mel! congrats on your u/s! you must feel happy - although i'm sorry about the twin. same thing happened to me last pregnancy...

    i'm still hanging in there, believe it or not. i've had no spotting and have m/s and exhaustion. the symptoms are more mild than with DD (both were horrendous with her) but are still there and makes it hard to funcion! i have an u/s tomorrow...i'll be 8w6d, so hopefully the baby measures at least 8w with a strong heartbeat! i'll keep you posted.

  15. bub stopped growing a few days ago. D&C scheduled for thursday.
