I am going through this right now. I have crazy irregular cycles but my LMP was June1 got a BFP June 30th.

Betas on July 2 were 107

July 18th betas in the 5000s vag. Ultrasound showed gestational sac and a little "something" in the corner but could not measure OB thinks I O' late

Repeat tests on the 20th betas in the 7000s (not doubled, but dr not worried at this point) Vag. Ultrasound showed gest. Sac growth and he did measure maybe the yolk sac? No heartbeat detected Doc still not worried may be to early

Repeat tests on 23rd betas in the 9000's (not doubling but rising consistently at a rate of 2000)
Vag ultrasound, no heartbeat.

Repeat on the 27th betas in the 13,000. Still no heartbeat or fetal pole visible. OB now fears the worst.

Repeat July 30th. Betas 15,000. Second opinion dr with vag ultrasound. Still no embryo/fetal pole or heartbeat.

Will repeat on Aug 7th. Have D&C scheduled for Aug 8th.

~~~Have had no spotting at all. ~<<< spoke too soon... Spotting started this morning ;( >>>> Have had minimal symptoms from the beginning but are still present.

I am still holding out hope that the 7th shows something but it looks not great on this end.


I have read that 15% of women's betas don't double but continue with healthy pregnancies.

Vag ultrasound should pick up a heartbeat by 6/7weeks.


Hope yours turns out better! The waiting is the worst part!

:/ just about leaving there is still just an empty sac no baby no yolk sac nothing so I either have to wait up to 6 wks and miscarry naturally or do a. D n c or take these pills to miscarry... I feel like a zombie right now it's a horrible feeling. Thanks to everyone who has been supportive and replied hopefully the next time will go ok.

I'm so sorry for you! I had a miscarriage in May, I know exactly how you feel. I ended up just waiting to miscarry naturally but it was hard. I tried to have hopes of a baby but not get them up to high.
I know your far from thinking about this and I hope you take it as encouragement. I am now 13 wks pregnant with a healthy baby. I got pregnant about 2 wks after my miscarriage(not really trying to, didn't think I was ready). So, just remember that anything is possible and this doesn't define your future. Lots of
