I’ve been convinced to give up on my pregnancy. Basically, I had positive tests from end of 2ww (29th nov) every other day until 7gh Dec, when I was awake all night, as my sleep has been really poor since egg transfer, and the tests were negative in the morning. The GP and fertility clinic nurse advised that I was going to have a miscarriage. I wasn’t convinced, due to advice on here and reading online about the subject, so I slept for a few hours and didn’t drink for 4 hours....I then had a positive test again. At this point I contacted the fertility clinic consultant for advice and he advised that I continue to use the progesterone pessaries and attend the clinic for a blood test. I attended at 5 weeks 3 days and he also conducted an intervaginal scan and could not see a yolk sac.
I got the results yesterday afternoon and a doctor advised that my hcg levels were at 24 which is too low for the pregnancy to be viable. He advised to stop the pessaries and wait for an early miscarriage bleed.
The thing is, at each point I completely break down, thinking it’s all over and then I read contrary info online. Such as 24 is within the range for 5 weeks. Problem is I’ve stopped he pessaries, as per the doctors advice. Does that mean I’m essentially bringing on my period and giving up where there may still be a chance of a healthy pregnancy, or could it still be successful without the pessaries?? I don’t want to prolong it if there’s absolutely no hope, but we all know that we would go to the enth degree if there was a chance of giving birth.
I feel let down by the nurses especially and now I’m not sure that the doctors are being as transparent as they should. They all seem very blasé about what I’m hanging all my hopes on.
Please could anyone out there tell me if there’s any hope left at this stage, if I’m doing the right thing coming off the pessaries, or whether I should be at the give up stage? I seem to get much better advice on here than I do from the professionals involved.
