Hello! I am 11 weeks pregnant with my second child (I have a daughter that's 12), I went for my 10 week ultrasound last week and the doctor said that they couldn't see much on the ultrasound & also couldn't find/hear the heartbeat. She sent me for blood work to check my HCG level immediately after the ultrasound and it was over 60,000 but by Friday when I went back it had dropped to around 50,000-I found this out this Monday night. She thinks that I will probably have a miscarriage in the next 2-3 weeks and the baby had just passed away before the ultrasound but I have been feeling fine during this pregnancy. I have only had slight naseua and tiredness I also haven't had any bleeding yet only cramping/pressure, occasional sharp pain on my lower right abdominal side and slight backache. The ultrasound tech didn't say anything during the procedure & it was done transvaginally, she only said my uterus was measuring 9 weeks & 4 days. I also hurt a lot after the ultrasound up until the next afternoon. Should I get a second opinion?
