Miscarriage at 4 weeks

Common Questions and Answers about Miscarriage at 4 weeks

miscarriage

I had a miscarriage 4 weeks ago. I took 4 pregnancy tests in the last 3 tests and all are positive. The last time my levels were checked I was at 200 and that was 3 1/2 weeks ago. Four days before that they were at 6000. Could the positvie pregnancy tests be from that or could I be pregnant? The doctor scheduled an ultrasound. Could there still be tissue left and that is why it is positive? Would I have some kind of symptoms?
It has been 4 weeks today since I had a my second miscarriage, I was only 5 weeks along, blood tests were done at the hospital that day and my levels were only 6. So I bleed for 7 days and its has only been the last couple of days that I have noticed my breasts have increased in size. It didn't take long for them to revert back to normal size after the miscarrige.
i was going to my 20 weeks scan to find out what my baby was ( which i was so excited) and at the scan i got told that my baby had saldy passed away 4 weeks earlier, but at the midwife appoinmnet at 18 weeks the babys heartbeat was 120-125( according to the midwife) but the hospital said its been died for 4 weeks. i had no cramps, bleeding no signs what ever to even indercate that some thing was wrong. i found out on thur 18th aug and i was in hospital on the 19th aug for a planned miscarriage.
I had a missed miscarriage at 9 weeks -- and the DR told me within minutes of seeing no heartbeat during the u/s it was due to a "chromosone abnormality" -- how can she be sure this is what it is without further testing? She indicated there was a lot of fluid around the baby. She also said this is the most common of miscarriages (is that true?) and happened at a time when majority of miscarriages occur.
I'm sorry for the delay in response--was very ill for awhile I usually tell my patients to expect their next period within 4-6 weeks after a miscarriage. Since you were fairly far along, your hcg levels may have been fairly high. Your body won't ovulate until all the hcg is cleared. Waiting another week or two wouldn't hurt, but after that, a call to your doctor would be a good idea. Sometimes I like to jump start the cycles with a 5 day course of Femara or Clomid.
I had a scan at 7.5 weeks and there was nothing but an empty sac, blighted ovum. Scanned again at 8.5 weeks and still there was nothing but a healthy well formed empty sac. My husband and I mourned the loss on the first scan. It was much easier to be devastated at home, than in the office with a semi-non emotional doctor looking at you. You can still be hopeful!! But be prepared for the worst. Plus, it took 5 weeks for me to have my miscarriage.
I too had a miscarriage at 16 weeks last September. I am going thru another miscarriage at 16 weeks right now. I have MTHFR mutation which causes blood clots. Doc believed that was the cause of all my miscarriages (4 total) not including this current one. They put me on Lovenox and everything went well. I went in for a check up 2 weeks ago and was fine. Well two days ago at 16 weeks check up, they found no heartbeat.
I had a natural miscarriage at 11.5 weeks on 1/31/2006. I am trying to get a better handle on it I guess. I am worried that the hot tub I was in at 9 weeks caused this, my hcg levels were on target until then. I never had an u/s until I was in the ER with contractions and clots/ heavy bleeding on 1/31. I also have had 2 c-sections and endometriosis, I wonder if anyone has similar problems or any ideas for me?
It's just so frustrating...Last November 2009 we lost our son, Cole to SIDS. He passed away at only 4 months 4 days...I can't even begin to describe how that makes someone feel...So after about 5 months me and my hubby talked about the thoughts of another child. Let me tell you its tough as tough can get to even talk about that when you lost a beautiful perfect healthy baby boy...
How common is miscarriage at 11 weeks? I havehad 3 miscarriages since Nov 2011. #1 heart stopped beating around 8 weeks, #2 fetus stopped growing around 5-6 weeks, #3 hcg levels would not rise after 4weeks. I am now 11 weeks and have had 2 ultrasounds where the heart beat is strong and the baby is developing fine.
I remember some similar cramping in 2008 when i miss-miscarried before so im convinced ive had another Missed Miscarriage... Has anyone else experience some heavy cramping at 4 weeks and gone on to have sucessful pregnancy?
Hi ladies I am currently 5 weeks 4 days pregnant this is my third pregnancy my first two ended in miscarraiges at 6 weeks. My dr did an ultrasound at 4 weeks 4 day and didn't see anything at all! Has anyone else had an ultrsound that early?
You can have implantation spotting for up to 8 weeks. I had some slight spotting at 5.5 weeks. You should be fine. If the spotting continue, call your OB.
I am so sad to be telling you all this but I started bleeding yesterday, went to the hospital and they confirmed a m/c. =( The baby grew to 8 weeks 4 days and then stopped. I can only assume it's because of my translocation but other things can happen too. Geez, this never gets any easier. I guess it's more tolerable because now I have my daughter to distract me but still, I really, really, wanted this baby. Say a little prayer for me ladies.
Hi girls, I had a miscarriage 4 weeks ago at approx 4 -5 weeks pregnant. I have taken 2 pregnancy tests in the last few days and they are both positive (most recent one darker than the first). Of course I'm beyond excited because I have a history of PCOS and ovulation problems so it was a miracle we conceived the first time let alone AGAIN just a few weeks later. Are there any other mums who've had or are experiencing a similar situation? I'd love to hear about your experiences.
Chances go down at 12 weeks but not away as you will see on this forum. We lost ours at 13 weeks 4 days and had an ultrasound at 12 weeks 2 days and everything was fine and 13 weeks 4 days it was not. We had two ultrasounds back to back because they were doing the first trimester screeneing and the baby wouldn't turn for them so they told me to come back in a week. He/she was moving fine and had a strong heartbeat but just wouldn't cooperate.
Is it possible for a babies heartbeat not to be seen on ultrasound at 10 weeks?
With my first pregnancy, I miscarried at 5 weeks. Miscarriages are more common within the first 12 weeks, but can also happen anytime after 20 weeks.
I'm 20 weeks, and I've had a very smooth, problem-free pregnancy. I have had a sonogram at 10 weeks, 14, weeks, and 17 weeks, and doctor said baby is very healthy. The blood work they did at the last appointment came back fine as well. I've had a significant little pregnant belly, and hungry about every 4 or 5 hours, tender breasts but not too bad. I felt the baby kick for the first time about a week and a half ago, and heard the kicking with a stethescope.
Even though I am pregnant now I still stay on this forum to help others going through miscarriage when I can. I went in for a routine appointment at 11 weeks and found my baby had died at 7 weeks right after I saw the heart beat. I felt lost and empty for a long time and waited 4 months to try for this baby to heal after my d&c. I still think about it and get sad. I kept going over and over in my mind what I did to cause it.
