Hello,

I am new to this site as well. I too am looking for support and answers. I have read everyone else's story and I am really sad for the pain and suffering that you have encountered.
My first pregnancy ended in miscarriage at 10 weeks. It was only diagnosed through an ultrasound (for dating). The doctor convinced me to use medicinal suppositories to induce a miscarriage, and that was a huge mistake. I had bleeding for 28 days, followed by bouts of 7-13 days every few weeks thereafter. It was horrible. Finally after 4 months, they decided to do a D&C.
We started trying 3 months after the D&C, and I ended up getting pregnant again (and I was very nervous because of the last time). I had no real pregnancy symptoms except food aversion and tender breasts for about 3 weeks. So, at week 10 I had an ultrasound for dating (becuase I have a short luteal phase). It happened all over again, my worst fear. So, immediately the radiologist had a look and within 50 mins I was on the phone with an OBGYN and had a D&C booked for the next day. (this was a friday afternoon, so quite amazing that it was this quick) My bloodwork showed an overactive thyroid, but amazingly I had no symptoms of this either. So, it is really quite astonishing that the body can hide things so easily.
I have to wait at least another week before the results come back. So, until then I am not 100% that I have a molar pregnancy, but it does not look hopeful.
Of course, like everyone else, I am devastated that this is not working out. I am only 27 but I feel like it will never happen for me. I was ready for kids 5 years ago, but my husband was not ready until a year ago. This has been a real tough year.
I guess I just hope that there is hope, not just for me, but for everyone going through this. I would like to hear more success stories of healthy babies born after molar pregnancy! But I also would encourage everyone to share as this is not easy for anyone to deal with.
Hello everyone. I am 25 years old, living in the UK (my hubby is British), but I am American. I became pregnant in November, 2006. Around 5 weeks 2 days, I began to bleed red blood. Not a ton, but some. I was sent to get an ultrasound, at 5 weeks, 4 days. They established that there was a pregnancy, but it was too soon to see a baby or a heart beat. When I was 7 weeks, 5 days, I went back for another ultrasound, and they found a heartbeat. My husband and I were thrilled, as I had been terrified that I was miscarrying. I continued to bleed lightly until I was 8 weeks along. I started to vomit continuously at 8 weeks, 2 days, and I was shaking a lot as well. Couldn't stand any kind of heat, and I got dizzy a lot. At one point, I even passed out.

At my 12 week ultrasound, they told me the baby had no heartbeat, and had stopped developing at 9 1/2 weeks. We were shocked. I had a D & C on Jan 26th, 2007. After the D & C, I lost half the blood in my body. I almost had to have a blood transfusion, and I was VERY anemic. They put me on iron tablets to help me get healthy again. Before they discharged me from the hospital, I had another ultrasound to see if they got all the tissue out. They did see remains on the ultrasound, but they decided it was just blood clots that needed to come out.

I saw my doctor weekly, and he monitered my blood levels in order to see if they were rising. I continued to bleed quite a lot, until about 16 days after the D & C. After that, I just had random spotting. On February 20th, I started feeling really ill, like I had the flu or something. I called my doctor, he told me to take come pain relief, and some immodium, as I was having stomach issues. It turned out later that I had an infection in my womb, which as found out later in the week.

Also, I had been fighting to get another ultrasound done, as I was still spotting. The computers had been down at the hospital, due to a virus, so I was unable to get an ultrasound. HELLO, people still get sick when computers aren't working. I finally got another ultrasound on February 23rd, and the ultrasound technician said my uterus looked irregular, and that there was still something in there.

I was admitted immediately to the hospital. They came in, and a doctor explained to me that I had suffered a partial molar pregnancy. They had known this since February 2nd, and nobody did anything about it! I should have been having care as soon as it was found out that I had experienced a partial molar pregnancy. My husband and I were livid at this lack of care.

They were just about to put me to sleep for my 2nd D & C, when a doctor came running in, and said that the main hospital in London, who now was responsible for my case, told them not to do othe D & C until the blood results came back with my hormone level in it. I was very upset, because I had just mentally prepared myself to go through the D & C procedure a second time. I was really scared, because the first time I had lost so much blood.

It came back, that exactly a month after my D & C, that my hormone levels are 48. They should be 3 or under. I am hoping that they continue to drop.

So here I am. I am now registered to receive treatment through the hospital in London which deals with molar pregnancies. I am on 3 different types of antibiotics, which are making me really sick, and I can't wait for this week to be over. I am very scared, as I don't know what will happen next. I am SO worried about my ability to have more children. We are heart broken that we will have to wait for a year to conceive again, as we were planning on trying again soon, until we found out this news of a partial molar pregnancy.

I am hoping that people will start following through, and being more thorough in my future treatment.

I am so scared that this will happen again!!! I know having had a parial molar, that the chances of the tissue growing back or becoming invasive are slim, but I still fear that it will happen! I mean, what are the chances I would suffer a partial molar pregnancy in the first place???

Glad I found this site.
