    I went it for my first check up at what I believed to be 7w2d. They saw no yolk, no heartbeat, and said the sac was measuring at about 5w5d and this was likely a miscarriage. They then drew blood and called the next day delighted that my HCG levels were 36,000 and putting me at around 6w5d. I then did follow up blood work 48 hrs later, and my numbers only increased to about 41,000. The Dr. said he is 99.9% sure this is a miscarriage. I would prefer to have a D&C and move forward, if this is truly not a viable pregnancy, but I need to be 100% sure. Is this 100% or is there anything they may have overlooked? I'm going in tomorrow, so please reply soon if you have any thoughts. I'm not in denial, and I'm not unrealistically hopeful-- I just need to be sure so I can move forward. Many thanks.

    my baby was 11 weeks and dead, we saw it on the scan, perfect but still, no heartbeat and no blood transfer. i still wonder what if. my head knows the baby was dead but sometimes i just think if i had just waited ... anyway, dont do anything until you know that baby doesnt have a chance. i know nothing of blood results but you dont want to spend your life wandering.

    i would say the same as others hun..
    i had my scan and sac was there measuring 4-5weeks but nothing in it and i wouldnt do anything untill i had a scan a week later when my body had absorbed it..but i could never had lived with myself if i had intervened..
    my bloods were under 1 hun so i knew deep down there was no hope but i still choice to wait that extra week just to make to sure and i so glad i did now..
    you do what ever you feel is best for you..
    but your bloods are still rising hun so theres a little hope..
    i hope i aint blabbered on too much

    I never had any bloods taken when they confirmed my mmc. I had a scan at 7+3 but baby was measuring 5+6. They said that they thought it was likely that I had had a mmc, but that to be sure I would have to have a scan 10 days later to compare measurements and see whether the baby was growing. The later scan showed smaller measurements and so it was confirmed as a failed pregnancy.

    I don't know much about bloods, so personally would rather them look at the baby and check physical measurements instead of going off a hormone level in my body.

    Good luck hun xx
