Re: Molar Pregnancy
Jul 18, 2007
I am 30 yrs. Married for 12 yrs. My husband and I have no children. Have been trying to get pregnant since we first got married. Saw Fertility Drs, tried everything. Began seeing an Endocronologist/OBGYN(due to lack of menstruation). To get my body to regulate itself, Dr. prescribed Progesterone Pills to force a cycle, Chlomiphene (Chlomid) to force ovulation and Glucophage to control my insulin (insulin is high due to having Polycistic Ovarian Syndrome (PCOS). Did this for one month and to our surprise, got pregnant. I cannot even describe just how happy we were but things changed, this is my story:

09/15/06: LAST MENSTRUAL CYCLE

10/18/06: CONFIRMED PREGNANCY
Via 2 home pregnancy tests & blood test

BETA/HCG: 96

10/25/06: BETA/HCG: 2,724
Began taking Progesterone (Pregesterone levels lower than Dr likes)

10/27/06: VAGINAL ULTRASOUND
BETA/HCG: 4,114

11/01/06: VAGINAL ULTRASOUND
BETA/HCG: 10,227

11/10/06: WAS TOLD OF MISCARRIAGE.
VAGINAL ULTRASOUND
Baby did not develop properly. Stop taking Progesterone. Get BETA/HCG count 1x a wk until down to zero. Follow up/continue care with my original OBGYN.

BETA/HCG: 26,306


11/14/06: APPOINTMENT w/ ORIGINAL OBGYN.
General visit, discussed miscarriage. Will have BETA/HCG count done 1x wk until down to zero, effective today.

BETA/HCG: 46,000

11/20/06: BETA/HCG: 78,603

11/21/06: BETA/HCG LEVELS RISED INSTEAD OF DECREASING.
May still be pregnant. No other possible reasons for rising BETA/HCGs.

11/24/06: VAGINAL & ABDOMINAL ULTRASOUND @ HOSPITAL
Per OBGYN: Does not know what is going on. Can do a D & C to, send fetus to lab to find out and then will be able to let me know if there was a viable pregnancy.

AFTER ALL THESE YEARS, I FINALLY GET PREGNANT AND NOW JUST TAKING IT OUT WITHOUT BEING SURE IF I WAS PREGNANT OR NOT IS SIMPLY NOT AN OPTION!!! ASKED FOR A 3rd OPPINION.

11/27/06: REFERRED TO 3rd OBGYN FOR FURTHER CARE


11/27/06: PER PHONE CONVERSATION AND BASED ON 3rd OBGYN REVIEWING MY MEDICAL RECORDS: MAY HAVE MOLAR PREGNANCY.
Get (2) BETA/HCGs done. (1) Monday 11/27 & (1) Wednesday 11/29.
Schedule an ultrasound with Hospital ASAP.

BETA/HCG: 127,447

11/28/06: VAGINAL & ABDOMINAL ULTRASOUND @ HOSPITAL

11/29/06: BETA/HCG: 146,083

11/30/06: APPOINTMENT w/ 3rd OBGYN

CONFIRMED: HAVE MOLAR PREGNANCY.
Must have it removed immediately, before it starts to spread in body & lungs.

12/04/06: D & E @ HOSPITAL
Everything went well, minimal blood loss, no need to do hysterectomy due to severe blood loss. Stayed overnight.

12/05/06: RECUPERATING IN HOSPITAL & HOME.
While at hospital: blood pressure dropped, minimal blood loss, no blood clots.
While at home: tired, achy/sore. Feel liked someone kicked the inside of my stomach but otherwise excellent, no bleeding or blood clots.

12/11/06: CHECK UP WITH 3rd/ MY NEW OBGYN
Everything looks great, no infection, healing perfectly. OBGYN recommended not to get pregnant for 6 months. Started birth Control Pills. Must get blood work 1x a week until count goes to zero and once a month thereafter for at least 6 months. Everything should be fine, there is a 20% chance of getting cancer but not likely.

12/13/06: BETA/HCG: 1,089

12/18/06: BETA/HCG: 265

12/29/06: BETA/HCG: 34

01/03/07: BETA/HCG: 45 {RISING!!!!!!}

01/05/07: BETA/HCG: 49 {RISING!!!!!!}

01/08/07: BETAS RISING. OBGYN CONCERNED & REFERRED ME TO SEE AN ONCOLOGIST.
Must schedule/have done: Vaginal & Abdominal Ultrasound, CT Scan of Abdomen & Pelvis and a Chest X-Ray prior to seeing Oncologist.

01/12/07: VAGINAL & ABDOMINAL ULTRASOUND
CHEST X-RAY

BETA/HCG: 72 {RISING!!!!!!}

01/13/07: CT SCAN OF ABDOMEN & PELVIC AREA

01/17/07: ONCOLOGIST APPOINTMENT
ONCOLOGIST CONFIRMED: HAVE CANCER
Chose more aggressive form of Chemotherapy: 1 dose of Methotrexate daily for 5 consecutive days, off 2 weeks and begin chemotherapy again. Due to OBGYN and Oncologist catching the rise of count soon, should only need about 3 seperate weeks (15 single doeses) of Chemotherapy. Discussed side effects (possible loss of fertility, mouth sores, tiredness, low immune system, hair loss, sensitivity to sun....). Chemotherapy to begin 01/22/07

BETA/HCG: 103 {RISING!!!!!!}


01/22/07: BEGIN CHEMO EVERY DAY THIS WEEK
Chemo Monday 22nd thru Friday 26th

02/03/07: CUT HAIR OFF
Cutting off 14 inches of hair can be as traumatic as getting cancer

02/12/07: CHEMO EVERY DAY THIS WEEK
Chemo Monday 12th thru Friday 16th

CHEMO SIDE EFFECTS
Severe Nausea
No Appetite
Lots of Mouth Sores
Extremely Tired/Weak
Achy/Everything Hurts (laying on bed, weight of hair, nails, skin, clothes, everything that I touch/touches me hurts!!!!)


02/16/07: LAST DAY OF CHEMO
Blood work shows Methotrexate worked (BETA/HCG is less than 2).
Must get monthly blood work done for 1 full year to make sure cancer does not return. After no changes/rise in count within the year, no ore chemo needed & will be on remission.

03/10/07: BLOOD WORK
BETA/HCG has not changed still less than 2.

03/25/07: STOPPED TAKING BIRTH CONTROL PILLS
Everything (being pregnant, not pregnant, molar pregnancy, cancer)is finally starting to kick in. I am so mad, hurt, sad and frustrated!!!!!

04/03/07: BLOOD WORK
BETA/HCG has not changed still less than 2.

05/04/07: BLOOD WORK
BETA/HCG has not changed still less than 2.

06/04/07: BLOOD WORK

06/13/07: DUE DATE
Struggling with my Due Date, had everything gone as planned. Everyone being pregnant or having babies while I only have a haircut and cancer to show for it does not help much.

06/22/07: FOLLOW UP APPOINTMENT WITH ONCOLOGIST
Everything looks good. Reminder not to get pregnant (Ooooops, had 2 accidents. I rebelled/felt frustated and stopped taking the pill since March. An absolute NO NO!!! Negative pregnancy test (Never thought Id be happy a pregnancy test would be negative).

07/10/07: BLOOD WORK
BETA/HCG has not changed still less than 2.

07/18/07: STRUGGLING TO MAKE IT THROUGH TODAY. I HAVE HOPE THAT MAYBE I WILL BE ABLE TO GET PREGNANT IN MARCH OF 2008. I ALSO HOPE THAT I CAN BE A SOURCE OF ENCOURAGEMENT TO SOME ONE WHO IS GOING THRU THE SAME SITUATION.
