Comments: I understand and know exactly how you feel I just recently found out that I was having a molar pregnancy. It scares me to death to know that I am at risk for cancer, and I'm only 18. But along with my parents help and God I know everything will turn out all right.

Comments: I can't believe there can be risks on being pregnant; my heart goes out to you. Will you be able to have more children? I thought my pregnancy was difficult; I bled a lot and had a 4lb.premature baby girl. I found out she might have Cerebral Palsy. I never heard of Molar pregnancy. I am 32 and I want to have another baby,but I am kind of scared.

Comments: Kendra, your story sounds so much like mine. Today, June 29, is my 10th anniversary. On my wedding day 10 years ago I was 7 weeks pregnant, or so I thought. I was already showing, feeling extremely sick, and 6 weeks later was spotting brown blood. An u/s diagnosed a complete mole, and I had 2 d&c's (the second because my hCG was plateauing). I had persistent mole, and had an 8 day course of methotrexate and leukovorin (alternately), in November of 1991. This finally brought my levels to 36.6, and in subsequent weeks they eventually fell to 0. In April 1993 I had a healthy son, another healthy son followed in April 1995, a beautiful healthy daughter in January 1998, and baby #4 (after 2 miscarriages) will arrive in November 2001. Please do not give up. Normal pregnancies and healthy children can be in your future, just as they were in mine. Very nice website--I felt like I was reading my own story!

Comments: I am deeply touched by your story. I too went through the same nightmare Nov. 2000 I was diagnosed with complete molar pregnancy. Only 8wks pregnant with an IUD inserted in my uterus at the time. Not only that I had just given birth to my daughter Autumn 4 months prier. I had light spotting and cramping when I went to Dr. to make long story short I too am now getting monthly hcg blood test done. The countís been on 0 three months after D&C was done. Only 4 months to go to be out in the clean I still feel scare to death. I decided to no longer have children. I am most afraid of invasive tumors. Any suggestions please write back.

Comments: My husband and I found out 3 weeks ago I was pregnant which we were so excited about as we'd been trying for our second (we already have a beautiful 4 year old boy). One week after finding out, I lost a lot of blood and suspected I had miscarried. Last Monday I had an ultrasound which has confused me terribly. There's something there, although they can't tell me whether it's a feotus or if it's dead or alive or whether I'm having a Molar pregnancy which I'd never, ever heard of. Over the last 5 days I have been vomitting almost every day and feeling continously nauseas which we thought was a positive thing as surely it has to be a baby if I'm suffering morning sickness. Then I read up on Molar pregnancy and that's one of the symptons. I came to your website to find out more information and help me understand what could be happening to me. I will admit I am scared as I now realise what the repercussions could be and hearing the "C" word, well I'll be praying that the doctors were wrong. I have to wait 3 more weeks for a 2nd ultrasound as they can't tell now as it's too small. The next three weeks are going to be the worst and longest weeks of our lives but I guess all we can do is think positive and what will be, will be. I will update you once I've got more answers. Thank you.

Comments: In September of 2000 I first found this sight as I was diagnosed with a molar pregnancy. It was not remedied with a D&C and so I had to have chemo therapy. Praise God I have been at zero now since April. It went up and down a bit at the end and I almost had to have an even stronger treatment, but I was spared that. I guess I just wanted to sign in to say two things. One, if anyone wants to email me and talk that would be fine with me. I know how scarey this all is. Secondly, I would like to post a perspective that seems to be somewhat contradictory to some but what I beilieve and know as true. I believe that we live in a fallen world where bad things happen, but I don't believe it is ever God's desire for this stuff to happen. He loves us so much and He created us for perfect health before sin in the garden. But I do believe He allows stuff in our lives. He has been so very much with me through this whole thing even when I was mad at Him for allowing it to happen. He only allowed so much; only what He knew I could handle and the grace to handle it. He is very loving and never desires for our sickness or demise. He loves us and what He allows (not causes) to happen He does it knowing that He is with us through it all. I really beilieve this and I hope all who suffer are comforted by this truth that their God is for them and not against them in any way.

Comments: I had a partial molar pregnancy in March 2000. (I signed the guestbook in June of 2000). My blood work took about 5 months to get back down to normal - but praise the Lord, it went down! My doctor recommended waiting a year. After waiting 9 months, we decided to start trying again, because it had taken 14 months the first time! After 6 months of trying, we found out the day before our 4th anniversary that we were having a baby!! I called and set up my doctor's appointment, but in between finding out and seeing the doctor, (on Father's Day) I was pretty sure I miscarried. The doctor on call at my office told me she'd meet me at the ER - when I got to the ER, she had called and said I could see an ER doctor, and if there were complications, she'd come in. After 4 1/2 hours of testing, they couldn't determine whether or not I had miscarried. They told me to go to my dr. in 2 days, and have and HCG test done, and if it went up, I was pregnant - or it was another molar pregnancy, and if it went down, I had miscarried. (I could have figured that out myself!) I went in for my blood work and it had gone down. So, I'm thankful it wasn't another molar pregnancy, but am still suffering the loss of yet another child. Thank you for sharing Abigail's story along with Nina's!

Comments: I also had a partial molar pregnancy. I am still in the process of having the HCG levels checked every week they have been going down every time. My husband and I found out we were pregnant with our first child in February. We we're so happy! We went in April 17 for our 12 week apointment to hear the heartbeat. When the doctor wouldn't hear a heartbeat he sent us for an emergency ultrasound. Like you I was told that there is nothing there. I felt like I was crazy. I was 13 weeks along and I was already starting to show - how could there be nothing there! The doctor said it was a blighted ovum. After the D&C they realized it was a molar pregnancy and I've been having my blood checked every week since. I'm down to 1.7 I've been under 25 for the last month now but it just won't seem to hit 0 - it's frustrating - I'm ready to move on. I am lucky and greatful that I have not and probably will not develop cancer. Thinkgs could be worse. Everytime I think I'm starting to move on it's time to go back to the hospital and have more blood drawn and relive it all again. I have felt like a freak of nature - no one knows what a Molar pregnancy is. It's nice to read about someone who has gone through a similar situation. Thank you! Good luck to you, you will be in my prayers! Amy

Comments: Hi: I got pregnant for the first time in February of 2000. In May my Dr. tried to hear the heartbeat and did not so, sent me for an ultrasound. There was no heartbeat, but the fetus looked misshapen. I had a D&C two days later. Six weeks later my Dr. told me it was a triploidy, and that was that. In July she calls and tells me that it was also a partial molar preg. and that I should come in for blood tests. I did this until October (My tests showed 5 and then went down to two months of 2). I was getting stressed because my Dr. said it had to reach 0. I spoke to another Dr. who said I had 3 mths below 5 and so I was good to go. My husband and I started trying again and again in February we got pregnant. We decided to go to the Dr. who gave us the green light to go. Before she would see me she wanted an ultrasound done. We went, this time at 7 weeks. The heart beat was slow and so instead of having a prenatal appt. I just kept going in for ultrasounds until the baby's heartbeat stopped. I was told that there was no hurry to do a D&C and because when I had my first one I was lead to believe by my then Dr. that there was only one place to have it done and that was at what they call the "A" clinic otherwise known as an abortion clinic, I was determined not to go there again. I was told that it would just be hard on me emotionally to wait. I waited and waited and nothing happened. Finally I got frustrated and said I would do the D&C. I chickened out on the first go around and had to reschedule. I ended up having the D&C at 16 wks. We asked her about the danger of waiting and she said there was none. She also said we could start trying again within two weeks of the D&C. We again waited the approx. 6 wks to get the pathology and chromosome results back and again we were told we had a partial molar pregnancy, triploidy (male) and in addition this time we had an extra chromosome 10. We are devastated. My Dr. called me and said that she wanted me to come in for a blood test (it is at 8). She also gave me the name of a Dr. she wants me to go see. I called for an appt. and was totally freaked when the receptionist answered as the Women's Cancer Unit. My Dr. says that it is better that I be under his care in the event I end up with cancer from this recurrent partial molar pregnancy stuff. I am really stressed out. The welcoming package is all about cancer. If everything works out and I don't end up with Cancer I don't know if I have the courage to try again. I am really scared. My husband is convinced that he is the problem, since my sisters have all had successful pregnancies. He is devastated that he may be the cause of 4 years of struggling first to get pregnant and then the two unsuccessful pregnancies. I get panicked about the cancer stuff... It is hard for me to sleep and I get nervous about every little ache I feel. If there is anyone out there that has had recurrent partial molar pregnancies one right after another and has some advise for me, I would love to hear it.

Comments: I just wanted to tell you that I felt like I was reliving what has happened to me recently while reading your story. We have a son (2 yrs.) also, like yourself, and was trying for a second child when it was discovered through ultrasound that this pregnancy would miscarry, nothing mentioned about molar pregnancy yet. After I had a D&C, my OB/GYN told me I had a partial molar pregnancy and I am now currently going for blood work, so far so good. Your story is truly inspirational and has given me hope not to give up. I am 35 yrs. old, and am hoping that when we get through this that we can try again and be successful in blessing not only ourselves but our son with a brother or sister. I like to hear/read success stories after having a molar pregnancy. They are very encouraging to those of us who are living the experience.

My count was under 5 by March, that's when my 1 year wait began. I am however blessed with a boy who will turn two in September - but what aches is there was "suppose" to be a sister or brother delivered last month, June and the wait now just seems forever. Like you I miss being pregnant! I feel for you and your misfortunes as you have had to experience the next level, cancer - how terrifying! Prayers are with you and your family.

Comments: In 1994 I had a twin molar pregnancy. One twin was the molar pregnancy and the other was a viable fetus. Unfortunately at 19 weeks I got toxemia and had to have a D&C. This bothers me until this day. My little girl was kicking on the way into the operating room. I told the doctor I could stay in bed until it was okay to deliver, but she told me we'd both be dead before the weekend was over if I didn't have the D&C. My HCG levels were over 900,000 because of the twin pregnancy. I had methotrexate and Leukovorin alternately for eight days, in my wrist. Again the same the next month. My levels were still pretty high and I had to have a tube put in my chest for the stronger chemo, which made my hair fall out. But thank goodness it made my HCG go down to 0. Just because you need chemo does not necessarily mean it's cancer. Mine stayed as a precancerous condition until my level went down to 0. But you must get the chemo if your HCG doesn't go to 0, because it can become cancer and kill you. My doctor told me of a girl who didn't get treatment and died. It has a very high cure rate if you get the treatment. Molar pregnancies are rare, but twin ones are even more rare. I had always wondered if I could have done anything else, but I found a web site today that discusses twin molar pregnancies ( some can go to term, but if you get toxima it must be terminated. The pathology report said my baby was a girl, she'd be 6 years old today, I miss her so.

Comments: Wow, what a roller coaster ride I don't want to be on. I recently have been diagnosed with Twin Molar with normal fetus. On 07-30-01 my husband and I wend to the hospital for a D&C, (at my request) 1 last sonogram was preformed and we couldn't believe it, there before our eye's was a healthy heartbeat we got to see and here our babies heart beat for the first time. I was distroyed thinking this ball of hell was going to take our child with it, but when my doctor heard there was indeed a heart beat she called off the D&C. Wow, what a relief or was it. She said she has only seen this in one of her patients and she delivered a healthy little girl at 30 weeks with a total hysterectomy following. I am so scared to get attached to this baby for fear something will happen before we get to term. My husband on the other hand is a TOTAL wreck for fear of something happening to me. I can't begin to describe the feeling I have knowing what is inside of me, growing right beside my child and putting it's life in jeopardy. We will be doing a Amnio at 14 weeks to make sure the baby is OK. I truly need all the prayers and angels God can provide. I understand it's out of my hands and in his. My prayers will be with all of you. I welcome anyone who would like to talk. Thanks for listening.

We went for a D&C on June 14. I never even heard about molar pregnancy, but when I went to have a follow up visit with my doctor he told us that we had a partial molar. He told us I had to go for blood tests once a month, and that we had to wait 1 year to try again. I am having such a hard time with this all. Next month I'll be 32 and am regretting not starting earlier. I'm scared, and feel like 1 year is an eternity. Has anyone out there tried earlier and been successful. Thank you again.

Comments: I am writing because I never realized how many people were going through the same exact things I am going through. I found out I was pregnant on May 6, 2001. I was so excited. On June 20th I had an ultrasound (my third) and my doctor said (I am sorry but this pregnancy will end up in a miscarriage). I was devastated. To this day those words are probably the most painful I have ever heard. I had to get used to the fact that I was no longer going to have a baby and I needed to make a decision about terminating the pregnancy. After what seemed like months but really was only weeks we decided that a D&C was the best way to go. I ended up having a laproscopy because the Dr. thought she had perforated my uterus. So for me not only was this emotionally painful but physically as well. I thought at the time that after the surgery I would just have to heal and not worry about anything else. Until I went to my postoperative appt. It seems that my baby was actually a partial molar. I had never heard of something like that, although I felt a little relieved that there was nothing that I or my husband had done to harm our baby. That relief lasted about five minutes when I heard that this could happen to me again and there was a chance that I could get cancer. As selfish as this sounds I kept thinking "Why ME?" Haven't I been through enough. I lost my baby.
It's been a month since my surgery and my blood is being drawn monthly now. Thank God I so far have had no abnormalilties. To those of you whom are going through this as I am writing this. I wish there were words that could make you feel better, but really there are not. The only thing I can say is God bless you and your family. If anything this experience has taught me is to hold those that I love that much closer. I will never forget my little one whom I am convinced was a girl and often my dreams are haunted by images of what she would have looked like or how she would have grown up, but in my heart I know she is in heaven in good hands just waiting for me to care of her when my time comes.
Take care everyone and I will keep all of you in my prayers.

Comments: Hi there! We have read your story and we must say that you are in fact a wonderful person. It is so kind of you to share this personal experience with us, you have shed some light on our experience with "partial molar pregnancy ". Your kindness and support has lead us to believe that no matter how much we must still go through and how much this pain hurts, somehow we will get stronger and to some extent cope with our loss. This is only the beginning of our pain, July 25, 2001, & your story inspired us to believe that somehow our tomorrows will have sunshine even though yesterday and today all we have is tears of rain in our sad hearts. Knowing our little precious angel has beautiful friends like Nina & Abigail makes us feel so much more secure that they are in a wonderful place being protected by God. THANK YOU FOR YOUR GUIDANCE & SUPPORT

At least that was what we were wanting since we already have 2 boys. They were both very healthy pregnancies and 9lb. babies. Iím sorry for your loss.
I am glad that other women have experienced what I am experiencing now I am scared but I know that everything will be ok thanks to everyone who wrote to the website and thanks to the woman that started the site. You truly made me cry when I read what happened to you. Iím sure your daughter would have been beautiful and successful sorry for your loss.

Comments: We lost our daughter (Calli Marie) on August 6, 2001. The doctor called 1 week after we lost her to tell us that the pregnancy looks like a molar but we need to do further testing. We'll let you know in a week to two weeks. I being a nurse asked her was she going to test my HCG levels. She States No! Not until we are sure. I thought that my levels still should be checked but the doctor says no and cancelled my blood work. Now we play the waiting game. In my personal opionion they just want to be able to tell us whether or not it is partial or complete. I suppose we will find out soon enough. it has been a day since the doctor called and it seems like forever.

Comments: I'm very sorry for your loss, I have also gone through the molar pregnancy nightmare and am still having my hcg checked monthly. I would like to know if anybody has any ideas on how to PREVENT a future molar pregnancy. I was taking calcium and magnesium tablets during early pregnancy, is this something that others have done? Could it be that something in our diets plays a part? My doctor told me that asiatic women are much more likely to have molar pregnancies and in fact 5% of pregnancy in asia result in molars. However the asian population in North America does not have as high an incidence. This is what makes me wonder if it could be something in the asian diet?

Comments: I am only 19 years old and when I was 16 I had a molar pragnancy also.It was very hard to deal with, I started to bleed heavily one morning and that is how I came to find out that I was having a molar pragnancy, I also had a d&c performed and it was the worst day of my life, I still cry til this day and always think about the baby that I was carrying inside me for nine weeks. Since then I have been pregnant again and I had a D&C done because my hormones levels were high and they thought I was having another molar pregnancy, they saw a little bit of blood in my uterus which also made them unsure, come to find out it was not a molar pregnancy again and in fact they think my hcg was high because I was pregnant with twins, I confronted my Dr. asking her why she took my babies away from me and she said then I was in the process of having a miscarriage anyway, so knowing that her guess was wrong on the molar there is no telling if my babies would have really been okay, my husband and I are now in the process of trying again hopefully we conceive soon and everything works out for the best.

Comments: I just found out today that I had a molar pregnancy. This was my second loss in a year. August 18 marked the year anniversary of our first loss. I am still in shock from the whole situation. I have not shed many tears yet. I am fearful that if they come they will never stop. My husband and I have been blessed with three beautiful children, but I love everything about motherhood and was so looking forward to experiencing it again. (8 yrs since the last). Thank you for putting your story in print for people like me who have never heard of this let alone what can happen. We did name this baby at our Dr's. urging. Her name was Olivia Joy. Our Dr. put this loss in a beautiful explanation. He said that this baby sacrificed its life so that I could live and raise it's three siblings. She is now in God's eternal playground waiting till the day we are reunited in Glory to show me around the Kingdom!
Olivia will always be special to me even though I never saw her, held her, or nurtured her. Thanks for letting me share my heart. Robena

Comments: On 8/13/01 I went in for my 17 week checkup, this was to be the ultrasound where we found out the sex of the baby and confirmed the due heartbeat. I was devastated to be told I had a partial molar pregnancy. Only 6 months prior to this I lost my three year old daughter in a car devastated I was all over again. I had never even heard of such a thing. In the past couple of weeks I have tried to gain knowledge and understanding. It has been a very difficult thing. It is helpful to know that I am not alone. When the Dr. told me this was a rare situation, I felt "why me". It is encouraging to know that there are others out there who have experienced this, and have gone on to have normal, healthy pregnancies. The Lord works in ways we just can't always understand. At least my little angel in heaven now has a brother or sister in heaven to play with. I look forward to the day I can meet this beautiful little soul whom I never got to meet. God bless.

Aug 29th, I went to the ER due to cramping. I knew something was wrong. I had a pelvic exam and an ultrasound (on the stomach and through the vagina). Then the doctor gave me the worst news, I had lost my baby. He did not know much about molar pregnancies, but said I needed to see my OB-GYN. I have cried everyday since then. My boyfriend has been great and is always by my side. I have yet to have my D&C performed, so I still feel close to my little angel. I don't think I will ever fully recover from this. My heart will always have a sad spot for my baby. Again, I thank you so much for making me feel like someone out there can truly understand how I feel.

Comments: Monday the 10th I went in for my second doctor visit only to be told there was no heart beat and he need to do a D&C. Almost one year to the day I had face this and my heart could not bear having to tell my husband. I asked if I could wait one week to give it to God and ask for a miracle. I was numb, but numbness was just beginning. The next day I was woken by my husband terrorist has just attacked New York. I could not move, and I could not turn the t.v. off. The one thing I could keep doing is asking God why. I was in bad shape when I went back to the doctors office, but not as bad as I knew. It happen in a flash, and continued in slow motion as I was being told that I had to meet the doctor in two hours to have a D&C. He knew what I had not clue. I was never told anything intill the next day as I was grieving for the lost of my long awaited baby boy which Joey and I were sure it was this time a healthy baby boy. I received a phone call from the nurse telling me I needed to have my HCG level tested. Still I was not told a word. I hung up and snapped out of my numbness and called back and demanded the doctor and that was when I was told what was going on. I had a full molar pregnancy. I go for my first blood test next monday. Where have I learned what is going on in my life from woman like you. I had no clue what I might be up against. You say that you had a parcial...What are my chances with having a full? My husband is beside himself and can not talk about it. He thinks that I will manifest it by finding out more information about it and I feel so a lone. It is only him and me in this. I do not have the support of friends or family. After last year and having everyone know I wanted to keep it quite till we knew for sure. Now I feel like I need to wait till I know for sure. I am so greatfull for you telling your story. You have been one of the few sorces that can tell me what it is that happen to me and what the next step is and not even my own doctor gave me that. As scard as I am I thank you for letting me know from one woman to another what....So maybe I can help myself. I am so confused and numb.

Comments: Kendra, I want to thank you so much for posting your story. I couldn't wait to wave my ultrasound picture around for everyone to see. Our first child, my parent's first grandchild (you can imagine the excitement)- the ultrasound was scheduled for September 13th at 11 weeks. The thought of not seeing a heartbeat never entered my mind. Unfortunately, that's exactly what we saw. My doctor gave me the options: 1) Let time and my body take care of the situation or 2) Have a D&C. My husband and I opted for the D&C because there was no sign that my body was "handling" the situation and we were ready to try again as soon as possible. We had the D&C the next day and all went well. I was working through the depression and all of the people who were still hearing about my "good news" at work. That was one of the toughest because I knew it made everyone feel uncomfortable when they offered their congratulations. I wish that was the end of the story but I received a call on Tuesday, 9/18, from my doctor. She said that the tissue had been sent to the lab and I had been diagnosed as having a parial molar pregnancy. She gave me correct information just not much of it. So like you, I went searching on the internet. Thank you so much again for you post. It provides some level of comfort to hear your story and know that you made it through and I'm not alone. It also helps to have more information. My thoughts and prayers are with you and your family.

Comments: Thank you for your site, it and the links you provided have been so helpful in the past month. I had a twin/partial molar pregnancy - we heard a heartbeat until week twelve, then still heard a placental beat until 17 (baby must still be ok, just hiding, right?) and then I began to grow 3cm a week, but we lost the placental beat. All of this because I had a developing fetus AND a mole, but the growth of the partial mole was enough to take the nutrition from our baby whose heartbeat HAD BEEN THERE -- who looked so perfect yet way too still on the ultrasound :-(... dead at only 12 weeks old.
I had the D&C just over a week ago and am happiliy seeing my levels go down and praying a lot. I am mourning the loss of my developing baby (a son, I am sure) and the one that took his life. So much to process.
Thanks for your service to those of us searching out here. What a blessing you are to us and many others. Thank you.

Comments: Hi Kendra, I wanted to let you know how touched I was by your's and Nina's website. I just came from my first obstetric appointment. I am 8 weeks along. I told the doctor that my stomach felt too big and that I felt pressure when I laid on my back. She immediately performed an ultrasound. She showed me where the baby is but she also said that I either have a uterine fibroid or a molar pregnancy. She would not tell me what would happen if it is a molar pregnancy, so I assumed the worst. She made an appointment for me to have a detailed ultrasound to determine for certain what the problem is. Today is Tuesday and I won't know anything until Friday!!! I came home and looked up molar pregnancy on the internet and my assumption was correct as to the outcome. I am very upset and just wish I knew one way or the other. If you are interested, I will let you know the outcome, for better or for worse. Best of luck to you and your lovely family. Kim

Comments: I can feel your pain. I just got out of the hospital from dealing with a molar pregnancy. While I was in the hospital, there was so much going on that it didn't really sink in until now. My hospital experience was very traumatic. I lost over 1 litre of blood in surgery and I was in soooo much pain. I could barely stand for 2 days, so they FINALLY gave me a blood transfusion. I was 14 weeks pregnant and so excited. When they did my ultrasounds they didn't think there was a baby at all, but apparently after surgery I found out there was. They originally thought I was only 12 weeks tops, I was one of the cases where I wasn't showing as much as I should. (they found out it was 14 during the procedure) I can't believe they gave you a few days to think it over, they sent me right over to the hospital after my appointment. But I guess they maybe didn't know as much about it.
I really don't know how I am going to get through this. I work at a maternity I think I may have to leave that job soon. I don't think that I need to be around that right now. It will only make it worse. (considering my manager is due the same week I was) How on earth do you get through this????? My boyfrined is still devastated over it and has been so supportive, but he has no clue the pain I feel. He's trying his best. They told me my hormone level was close to 100,000 which is the worst case scenario I believe. No one's really told me much since the operation. But I'm sure this is going to be a long journey, and I just don't know if I can do it.

Comments: A year exactly to my D&C date I am pregnant again. I am now 11 weeks. I had an ultrasound at 8 weeks and we found the heartbeat with no problem. I feel great regardless of the pregnancy. I had a hard time with migraines after my Molar, and had some issues about ever getting pregnant again. Well here I am ready for another great challenge. Molar pregnacies are so very difficult with so many things to worry about. Good luck to everyone and stay healthy!

Comments: I have also been diagnosed with a molar pregnancy. My first pregnancy. It is very heartbreaking to know that the baby you carried for 11 or 12 weeks is no longer there. It is the worst feeling for both me and my husband because no matter what everyone called "it" in our hearts it was our first baby. We haven't been through many treatments yet but to start out with my HCG level was 40000 and in two weeks it had dropped down to 75. The hardest thing of all is having to wait the full year to become pregnant. I still have 11 months to go.

Comments: I suffered a molar pregnancy in October 1998 and underwent emergency surgery after it ruptured my uterus. I went on to have chemotherapy. Three years later at thirty one I have been told that the subsequent scarring leaves me with a slim chance of becoming pregnant without the aid of IVF. I do not have any children but still hold on to hope. My heart goes out to all of you, who like me, probably once took these things for granted and I wish you all the best.

Comments: Hi! I am so glad that I was able to find out more information about Molar Pregnancy from your web site. I had a molar pregnancy about 6 years ago. At the time, I was only 19 years old, young and so-called "stupid". My husband (at the time) and I were not mature enough to really understand the implications of this type of pregnancy. I went to the doctor for the first time when I was 11 weeks pregnant. We were both looking forward to having a baby. When the doctor told me that he could not hear a heartbeat, he said that it was normal, and that I just probably wasn't as far "along" as he thought. He suggested we get an ultrasound. I had to go to a clinic next door for the US, and the US was probably one of the most horrible experiences I've ever had in my life. The lab tech that was doing the US was very quiet, and when I finally asked her what she was looking at (of course not thinking anything was wrong), she said "There's nothing alive in there, your doctor will probably want to see you". I couldn't believe it. I went into a sort of shock. My doctor still thought that nothing was wrong. He ordered 2 HCG tests a couple days apart, and then another US. This one was done by a specialist who told me that it was probably a molar pregnancy. I had the D&C a couple days later. I continued to have the HcG tests for 2 months, until the level was 0. After which, I haven't had any problems. I am so thankful for this. The whole thing was such a haze for me, that I don't even remember what the lab results were. After the failed pregnancy, my husband and I had some problems, which eventually led him to ask for divorce. I never realized that I really could have had cancer until a couple years later when I was looking for more info on molar pregnancies.
Now, 5 years later, I am married to a wonderful man, and we are trying to get pregnant. As I have thought back to my first experience with pregnancy, I have a little anxiety that this could happen again. Knowing that you were able to have a normal pregnancy, makes me worry a little less. Thank you for sharing your story!

Comments: I too just found out I had a molar pregnancy on October 15, 2001. I was 14 weeks pregnant at 16 years old so I really didn't understand what I was going through and still don't but the next day I had an D&C on October 16,2001 and I had to stay over night for testing.I still have to go back for testing on Tuesday and will be going back for more testing until my HCG level is 0.I really hope and pray that it becomes zero soon because I am really scared and don't know what to do about all of this maybe I'm too young to understand.I've been praying about this and I hope I get better soon.

Comments: Hello, my name is Emily. I was browsing websites trying to find more information on reasons behind multiple miscarriages and came across your webpage.
I have three healthy boys, but have also had four miscarriages. The first was within the first few weeks, and after alot of throwing up, I was back to "normal" according to the doctor and was told not to worry about it that I was just too young.
My second miscarriage was similar to the first, with the throwing up and cramping. The difference was that I was about 2 months along and looked about 6 months. When I started bleeding, the doctor told me that I had miscarried, gave me some pain killers and told me to go home and go to bed. He said that I must have already delivered the "baby" because the ultrasound did not show anything.
The third miscarriage was within the first week after finding out I was pregnant. It was nothing like the others because I didn't really feel anything. I bled for about a week and it was over.
The forth is much like yours. I found out I was pregnant the beginning of Feb. 2000. I had just recently started taking a new medication for my asthma which says it is not recommended for use during pregnancy, but the doctor assured me that the benifits out weighed the risks. I had my first ultrasound the following day to get a due date, and they said all was ok, it was too early to hear a heartbeat yet. Everything was going fine, I was working and raising my sons as normal. I went in for my second checkup and they said I was doing fine, but the heartbeat monitor had been misplaced so they would check for the heartbeat at my next appointment. I never made it to that appointment. The following week at the end of March, I started bleeding. I went to the ER and they did another ultrasound, but said it was ok, that some women bleed during pregnancy. I wasn't cramping so I took their orders and went home and went to bed. The next day I just did not feel right so I called my mom who is an x-ray tech and asked her boss to do another ultrasound to make sure. I was in the office within an hour and she preformed the ultrasound. There was an amniotic sac, the placenta, but no baby. Nothing was inside the sac. She said there was nothing I could do. I had lost another baby. I was devastated. I was 20 weeks into the pregnancy. I had to go back to work and act like nothing had happended. I still have the ultrasound pictures of the empty sac, and look at them often, wondering if that was supposed to be my little girl.
I am still wanting to have my little girl, but am so affraid of losing another one, I refuse to get pregnant again.
I would love to hear from anyone else who has gone through this. Please feel free to email me.

Comments: Your story both touched me and scared me. Tonight my sister in law found out that the child she has been waiting for her entire life is gone. I know how bad she wanted this child because it is how I felt when I had my son. I can't imagine her pain. When she is ready I will share your story with her and hopefully she will be able to see that her chances of having another baby are not gone with this child. Thank you for your courage.

Comments: I also a had a partial molar pregnancy and am currently undergoing chemotherapy. It was my first pregnancy and was very excited. I am hoping my levels drop to zero in the next few weeks. They are currently at 383. I was diagnosed September 6th and am still battling this condition. This site has made me feel that I am not alone and that others have also gone thru this. My doctors have told me that I will be ok and that I will have children in the future. I am 29, hopefully things will go well next time I am pregnant.

My doctor does not seem to know much about a molar preg., she said I was her first case, and she had delivered over 2000 babies. I had 2 health childre Thank God for that. I am looking for information on HCG levels - how long does it take to return to 0, hopefully. Should I switch doctors if so what type of doctor? I am so scared!!! The work Cancer really scares me, I don't want to die, my kids need me and I need them. Do you have any answers or suggestions for me?

Comments: I too just recently experienced a molar pregnancy. It was my 5th pregnancy and I thought I knew what I was doing - to find out God was showing me differntly. I was 18 weeks and @ my first checkup when I found there was no baby! How could this be? I had all the "normal" signs even looked pregnant! My D & C was Oct.8, 2001 & everything went well. Now we're waiting for my levels to drop. God has been with us through it all and we know without a doubt our baby is in heaven, safe in the arms of Jesus. The hard part now is the waiting game, but God is with us as He always has been. He promises to never leave us or forsake us. He has a reason for everything.

Comments: Hi, I had a molar pregnancy in 1999 when I was just 17. I called my baby Christopher he died on October 4th just 8 weeks into the pregnancy.My boyfriend at the time was very unsupportive and none of my friends truley understood what I was going through, to them it wasn't even a baby just a bunch of cells, to me Christopher was my life and although I never had the chance to met him I feel like he's always been part of my life, I don't remember life before all of this. At the time I didn't have the internet so I couldn't find any information on Molar pregnancy or support groups I wish I had it would have eased the pain a little. This site will make life so much easier for many people. Thank you for doing such a wonderful thing.

Comments: Thanks a lots regarding the websites of molar pregnancy.
Even I'm not really good in English, I still want to write something to show how I valued your information of MOLAR PREGNANCY. Actually, this afternoon (Nov 26 2001), I had had my first appointment with my doctor at a gynae clinic. I was stunned when the assistant nurse asked me whether this was my first 'molarí. I said, no! I just come here for check up since I had undergone the D&C operation before. Anyway, I start thinking why they did change my appointment date (given date before is 9 Dec 2001)then, I kept wondering of what's going to happen to me until the nurse called me to Dr's room. During the meeting, the Dr told me the HPE result (ie.partial mole).Again, I stunned but still can control myself. The Dr also told me not to worry as the chances of getting cancer is low in partial molar. After taking blood investigation, I walked home with millions of question in my head.
At home, I tried to access the internet until I found your webs. I feel a bit relieve after reading your story. Thanks a lots for all effective information, even though I still worry about my blood result. Anyway, I should be brave to face such of possibilities as I have to look after my 2 daughters and also to finish my degree of nursing study for another two years plus. Lastly, hope to be in contact all the time. Bye.

I had a little bleeding so the doctor wanted it soon. My husband and I were instiapating we would see our childís hartbeat, but nothing. The doctor made me go threw blood work to see if my BHC levels were going up or down. We got the reports back and they were going up like I should be 2 to 3 moths along. My OB doctor sent me over to the hospital for a STAT ultersound.The doctors there told me there's no baby it looks like swiss cheese in your uteris. So you have a Molar Pregnancy. I was shocked and did'nt know what to ask the doctor nor say. Read everyones story's will help me go threw this surgery tomorrow. Thanks everyone.
