Hubby and I lost our first baby early in October at 7 weeks 3 days... some 5 or 6 urine tests and 3 qualitative blood tests revealed... NOTHING. All were negative. Nobody believed I was pregnant, but I was without a doubt. I had never been more than 3 days late for a period in my life... anyway, we only got confirmation when the MC started 3 1/2 weeks later. When it did, I couldn't get any of my medical providers to treat me for the MC because they did not believe I was pregnant based on no + blood tests. I had to change OBs to find someone who would listen and help... I explained everything that happened, my missed period and symptoms, the countless tests, the cramping for a week prior, and then the details of the MC. She said my description was the exact presentation of a typical MC, and she remains completely puzzled about what happened with all my tests.
Fast forward... today, I am 5 days late for AF. All negative urine tests this week. This would only be the second time in my life being this late, so I am pretty sure I am pregnant. Per OB request, went in for a quantitative test this morning and no results yet....
I am dreading another negative test, knowing the potential for me to be pregnant. Why on earth is the HCG not being produced? What causes you to get all negative tests while pregnant? Is it a sign I will MC again? Is it possible to have a healthy pregnancy and not produce HCG? How on earth do you get prenatal care if you are?
A thousand questions... someone please help :(
