Worst week of my life

I went for my first visit last Wednesday, 8/10. I was 7 weeks exactly. They couldn't find the baby on the ultrasound. This is my 3rd, so I know what an ultrasound SHOULD look like- all that was there was a big black hole. No baby, no bean, no heartbeat.
They did bloodwork on Wednesday, then again Friday (48 hrs). I had to wait til Monday for the results. That was a long weekend I spent mostly in bed. Then the dr. called with bad news. My numbers were increasing, but not enough, and there was a good chance I would miscarry. He said I could wait and let it happen naturally, or he could do a D&C.
I was devastated. We've been trying to get pg for almost a year. I choked and couldn't even talk to the dr. I called him back the next day to let him know I couldn't wait any longer, that I wanted to go ahead with the D&C on Friday (today).So he scheduled me for another ultrasound before they did the procedure.
My husband wanted to know why they had to to another U/S. What if they found a baby? I told him I wasn't even going to get my hopes up, that if a baby appeared, it would be a miracle, but I had already prepared myself for the worst.
They found the baby! With a heartbeat, clear as day! I texted my husband the pic, and told him he got his miracle. I was so shocked and stunned, I was numb the whole day. I couldn't even compose myself enough to ask the doc why my labs weren't right- he just told me that everything looked fine, but I was only 7 weeks, instead of 8 based on the baby's measurement.
Between the shock of getting pregnant after a YEAR of trying, thinking I would have a MC, and then seeing my miracle, I have never cried so much in my life as I have in the last 3 weeks.
