Hi Dr. Rynne, last mon 10/13 I had a vaginal ultrasound done which they believed I would have been 7weeks pregnant since my 1st day of my last period was Aug 20, 2014. They were able to see the yolk sac and possibly an embryo, but not certain. They could not hear the heartbeat. Based on the 2 plus cm, they said I was about 6 wks & 3 days. The Dr suggested a blood test on 10/13..then I got another one done on Wed 10/15. Result confirmed my HCG level dropped from mon 10/13 = 14,800 vs Wed 10/15 = 13,000. He said most likely I have a miscarriage. I will go back on next mon 10/26 for another ultrasound. Any thoughts/recommendation on my case? Please advise. Thank you very much, Jessica
When I exercise and my heart rate increases I sometimes hear my heart (or I think it s my heart as it goes to the beat) making this squelching noise, but I can only hear it when I hold in a breath. If I breath out and hold it there I can t hear the noise. Can anyone shed any light on this? Any Doctors in the house? wow! Way to scare me! lol ok I ll get it checked out. THANKS!!!!!
I am a woman in my mid fifties, a little overweight and a history of heart disease in my family.This morning I was sitting at the table when I leaned over to pick up something off the floor, I could suddenly actually hear my heart beat and the blood swooshing with each beat. I was diagnosed recently with very high cholesterol. So I am wondering if there is any connection ...or if there is any need for concern.
