And so it continues.......

I went and had a beta completed the day after my "miscarriage" and my levels were at 8700. I had another blood draw completed on Monday and those results were 16700.  The dr.s office called me excited and said that my levels were doubling normally and that they wanted me to come in for an ultrasound to determine what was going on with my pregnancy. Apparently, I did not miscarry yet.

I just came back from the Drs office and the ultrasound showed a 5 week, 6 day embryo.  There was even a heart beat but I didn't want to listen to it because the sonogram tech said that the embryo was implanted very low in the uterus with an active bleed above.  She said that I would likely miscarry.

I then met with the Dr. who said that it appears my embryo implanted into my C-section scar. and is not really in the cervix or the uterus where it should be.  The embryo is misshapen and it may be because of the pressure of the blood clot around it or that it is dying. Either way we won't know anything until next week. I will have another ultrasound then to get a more clear idea.

The Dr. did say that she has seen one other pregnancy grow into scar tissue that resulted in a viable pregnancy. The woman did have to delivery at 30 weeks with a full hysterectomy.  She further stated that this would likely be the outcome for me if the pregnancy continued.  More good news!  Then, the dr. told me that if I miscarried she did not want me to try to get pregnant anymore because if I have had one pregnancy attach to my scar it is very likely it will happen again.  She says I either have accreta or percreta of the placenta. She said if I google it I will freak out!  More great news!

Anyway, I am kind of in shock right now and digesting everything. I will write more when I am not so numb.
