Hello! I'm new on this forum and very sad regarding my IVF pregnancy.
We made 2 embryo transfer 5 days after the punction, in 8/11/2010 exactlly.
All necessary analysis and everything was exactly so how it should be. In 29 of november we received the positive pregnancy result, after the blod test.
In 4 december I experienced my first spotting very short and very less. One week later I have had again a short bleeding, not fresh blod and again in one hour the bleeding stoped.
In 5 december after my first bleeding I was to see my doctor, we made an ultrasound and he said everything is ok, I have a singleton and all is exactly how it should be. Next appointment was 13/12 to hear the heart beat,and the news what we have received were not many but confusing and scaring.
First, we heard the regular heart beat but the doctor told us that something is not ok with the embryo shape, maybe he cannot see it good, it is so like round, and not exactly C form, and he said that we have only 5% to keep this pregnancy and.. if I will not loose it by bleeding in the next days, I have to make an abortion. But of course to wait still one week to see what happends.
The due date what my doc told me was 23/07/2011, but everywhere where I have looked and calculate it, is around 27/07 or 01/08/2011.
Please, tell me it is possible that in 13/12 only after 1w after my first ultrasound things to change so dramatically?
Can be possible the the embryo had a position in the moment of ultrasound what made it not easy to observe it correct? We are prepared for what can be worse and we have lost nearly all our hopes. I am 35 years and my husband had a minimum level at sperm quality.
Please, is somebody experienced something like this let me know.
Many thanks and greetings from Austria.

I am so sorry Ana : (
I am no doctor nor have I experienced this but I would ask the doctor why abort the fetus, what can or could possibly be wrong and how sure is he that there is a problem.

Go with your Instincts and get a 2nd opinion.

We will be praying for you,
