Right now I’m pretty much just in this holding pattern. My HCG levels continue to go up but just barely. It’s very evident this is not a viable pregnancy and they keep saying the miscarriage will happen eventually but I want eventually to be now.
With my first pregnancy I was offered a D&C when it became obvious the pregnancy wasn’t viable. As it turned out it was a very good choice to go that route since they didn’t realize the pregnancy was ectopic until they went in and didn’t find what they expected to in my uterus.
But with this miscarriage I’m just waiting. Waiting for the terrible pain to signify another ectopic. Waiting for my HCG levels to go down so the doctors will take some action. Waiting for the awful weeks of bleeding to begin.
I’m trying to focus on the one tiny bit of silver lining in all this: that we weren’t planning this pregnancy. We weren’t trying. No medications, no timing sex, no ovulation predictor tests etc. So maybe someday, if I’m crazy enough to want to try this again, we hopefully won’t have to worry about my uterus being broken anymore.
