View Full Version : Lowered Blood Hormones
08-13-2008, 12:54 PM
On Friday I went to the hospital for stomach pain and my hormone level was 83000. I went again on Sunday for the same pains and my hormone level had lowered to 67000. The doctors say I'm miscarrying but when they did the sonogram the baby was sucking his thumb and rolling around. Is this normal or heard of by anyone? Please let me know

So even after you all saw that the baby was doing all right, the doctor still thought that you were miscarrying?
I'm not sure what to think either. I say, though, that if you are confused about things to definitely call the doc to get an explanation. This is my first pregnancy, so I'm sort of at the same loss you are. I sure hope everything turns out okay.
I would think that they would do the ultrasound before they told you that you were miscarrying instead of doing it afterward.
I'm sorry I'm not much help, but I definitely recommend calling the doctor.

Yea, I guess that because my hormone levels went down they think I'm miscarrying, but they also said that the baby looked about the right size and was active so they couldn't see a problem there. They also said that my cervix is still closed and I'm not leaking any amniotic fluid which to me means that I'm healthy and so is the baby, but they insist on telling me that I'm miscarrying.

The only thing I can suggest is a second opinion. I sure hate that you're going through that...especially with so much to still be in question. It's hard enough for them to tell you that you're miscarrying, but to then say that the baby looks healthy? Talk about worrying you. If I were in your shoes, I'd definitely try another doctor if possible.

I'm sorry you are having to go through that. When they did the sonogram did they check the heartrate? I can't imagine them saying you are having a m/c when you can see an active baby? I would also get a second opinion, if possible. How bad is the stomach pain? Is it pain (actual pain) or cramping? I had cramping off and on with my dd and it seems as though I'm going to have it with this baby as well. Cramps are ok, (according to my dr.) as long as they are not unbearable and as long as your not bleeding. I wish I could say more to help, I hope everything goes well for you. Keep us informed!
