I had the same exact thing happen at 5 weeks and was put on Prometrium until week 10…I’m now five and a half months pregnant with a healthy baby boy 🙂 I know exactly how you’re feeling right now and it sucks, but it’s great that a) the spotting has stopped and b) the doctor is staying on top of your blood levels 🙂 is there any way they can just call in the prometrium for you now? From my understanding it certainly can’t hurt. Hugs!!

I had another blood test today and my progesterone went up to 11 and my HCG went up to 10,300.
However, I had an internal ultrasound and the sac and yolk were clearly visible and measuring about 5 weeks 2 days. But there was no baby.
My OBGYN is concerned because usually you can see something at that stage with a vaginal ultrasound.

What did she say…just wait it out and check again?

Basically he wants me to have another blood test Monday. He said he’ll have the office call Monday to set up an earlier appointment (our original first appointment was for December 20). He said not to give up all hope because maybe the baby is just “hiding” in there… but I suspect he just didn’t want to tell me “you had a miscarriage” on a Saturday afternoon over the phone :'( :'(

Babies hide all the time especially in the early stages. IMO, if he had thought you miscarried for sure then he would have talked to you about your options for DNC or natural right away.
Still praying ((HUGS))

Its hard to find babies, in the eraly stages at times. If they thought something happend Im sure they would of mentioned options.
Just cuz the sac measured 5 weeks you could be a lil earlier.. and depending on the machine it might not be the best one out there

I have also heard from some friends/family not to panic, that a lot of women couldn’t see their baby at 5-6 weeks. But what I read online says that I should be able to see?? It is frustrating because so much of the information is contradictory. The dr also put it this way, “we’ll just have to hold our breath.” What.
Also I am not bleeding any more aand if this is a blighted ovum I wish it would just end. It is frustrating to feel pregnant (bloated and hurting boobs) and maybe the baby passed away a long time ago. Per the doctor’s orders we are not having sex, I am now using vag. suppositories (fun) and it all could be for nothing, just due to my stupid body not getting the message that it lost my dear little one I wanted so very much.
EDIT: I just reread that. sorry for the ranting. I just can’t believe this is my life right now.
