I am very sad to say that I went in for my second ultrasound (the first one the week before registered what they thought was a slow hearbeat at 100) on Friday and was told that there was no heartbeat. I was totally devastated and heartbroken as this is now my 4th miscarriage. Strangely enough I still am having symptoms of being pregnant (breast soreness, nausea at night) and the thought crossed my mind that maybe they were wrong and they just couldn't find the heartbeat. Since the ultrasound was done in a hospital here in NYC I would imagine that they would have state of the art equipment but has anyone had any experience where the ultrasound was wrong?
HOwever if they are indeed correct and there is no heartbeat this would be my 4th miscarriage. #1 happened when I was 31 and the rest have been since I have been over 40. i was told that I should have testing done with an RE and a Dr. Stein was recommeded to me.
I was also told to go in and have a D & C. At this point I am really concerned about having so many D & C's as I did read that this could damage the cervix. However the same exact thing happened to me last year and I waited to have a natural miscarriage. When it did come I bled so much and was in such excrutiating pain that I thought I was hemoraghing and dying so I went to the emergency room. I had a D & C anyway, and I was not happy about it.
Anyone out there have any experience wiht multiple miscarriages and possible causes? I was diagnosed recently with Epstein Barr Virus and Chronic Fatigue Syndrome but was told that this should not affect my pregnancy.
I am so confused at this point. I have heard so many different things from different doctors, different people. I would just love to hear any personal stories from any of you ladies out there.
i am considering Dr. Beer, but know nothing about him other than he is well known. Any personal stories about experiences with him would be greatly appreciated as well.
Best to all of you ladies out there,
