Told I miscarried yesterday ***UPDATE SECOND OPINION***


I have a question, my doctor told me yesterday that my hcg levels were to low that I am miscarrying....I spotted once Friday night it was dark brown and really dark red, then spotted Saturday night and it was bright red, then spotted again monday night in my sleep and it was dark red again, then spotted again tuesday during the day red again, now I am barely spotting. i have a pad on and nothing is on it the only time I see anything is when I go to the bathroom and it's light pink discharge.

My hcg went from 28 on thurday March 29 to 200 on the 3rd of April to 280 on the 6th of April. He took more blood yesterday to test my hcg levels again but I have not got them back yet...He told me I was miscarrying then took the blood to test. I guess to make sure its not ectopic or something....

My question is when is it going to happen....when is my body going to let go and let it pass....has anyone been told they have had a miscarriage and had to wait for it to come out...how long do I have to wait...this is driving me crazy..

(((MY UPDATE AT THE BOTTOM OF PAGE))))

With my first miscarriage I had very light on and off spotting from 5 weeks till I miscarried at almost 8 weeks. I wasn't sure I was miscarrying when I was just spotting because it was on and off. My doctor was sure I was going to miscarry when I went in at almost 8 weeks because I was having bright red blood and quite a bit of it and I starting cramping right before my appointment, the ultrasound confermed. That night the cramps got worse and the next day I had a complete miscariage and the bleeding lasted about a week and started extremely heavy and got lighter as the week was ending. This time I had a missed miscarriage and I am having no signs of passing the baby and so I have to have a D&C. If you do not naturally pass the baby soon your doctor will probably discuss that with you.

I found out Thursday and I have been lightly spotting brown for 3 days. I just want it over alreay, I hate feeling preg when I know I am not.

Did they offer a D&C or tell you to let it go naturally? My dr gave me a choice but said my baby stopped developing 5-6 weeks ago and since my body has not caught on yet we would likely need the D&C or it will be a really long process for me.

I am sorry you are having to go through this, everyone is telling me they are sorry for my loss, but really it is the waitign and uncertainty that is killing me.

Small piece of advice, do not go online and read other peoples' experiences. It scared me to death adn I was a wreck. So I came here to ask and it was much less scary and more supportive. I really feel okay with it now..well, for the moment anyway.

sorry for your loss


I am currently going through the same thing. Last Thurs. I went to the ER because I started bleeding and was told I was going to miscarry. I only had light bleeding until Sun then I started having cramps and passing tissue. This last through Monday. I now only have light bleeding no more cramping. Hope this helps.

No he did not offer a D&C he just said it would come naturally....So now I am just waiting for it to happen...I can't help but hold on the the small amount of hope that I'll get my levels back and they doubled...I no this is far fetched and I am trying not to think about it but its hard to push it out of your mind...I know its over but part of me is still holding on when I am trying to let go...It is so hard....I feel like when they call and tell me the levels are going down that it is going to be like I just found out for the first time again...I just wish I can go ahead and put this in the past....

I understand how you feel. I am going in for a second opinion ultrasound to double check before we do the D&C and I know even though my hopes aren't up that I will be just as devistated hearing it again.

Update second opinion


This took a dramatic turn..this is my update

So I went in for the second opinion on the 13th and sure enough they ran my hcg levels and they were still going up not by much but they were increasing. When he did my ultrasound he found out what the problem was. It was an ectopic pregnancy. It was in my left Fallopian tube right next to my ovaries. I had another ultrasound done by the er that night and they seen it too. My uterus was completely empty. They gave me two options surgery or the shot...I took the shot because I know surgery can leave scar tissue and make it even harder to have an healthy pregnancy. Now they said I have to wait 3 months before trying again so the shot could get all the way out of my system. The pains were incredible...It felt like I was in labor....My little girl was induced and as soon as the doctor broke my water for me the pain started....That is what it felt like after they gave me the shot...I thought I was going to have to go back to the emergency room. Anyway I had to go through a series of blood test last week to make sure the shot was working. My first test was 160 hcg then the second three days later was 140. It is suppose to drop 15% so I think that is close enough... I have to go back this friday for another test to make sure that my levels are still dropping...This has been a nightmare....

Then I read the chances of you having another ectopic once you have had one increase alot....

The second opinion probably saved my life or my fallopian tube....The first doctor I went to was done..he had told me I miscarried that after a month I could try again he did not even want me to make another appointment. I thought he would be a good doctor because he is the same one who delievered my little girl...But Iguess you can never tell....anyway the new doctor that found the ectopic told me that if I had not have come in It would have costed me my fallopian tube or it could have killed me...SEcond opinions are always the best...especially when you arn't 100 percent positive...
