we went for our first prenatal today. I calculate I'm 5 weeks and 6 days along, which is a bit early for a first u/s. yesterday i had some pretty intense cramping, and then this morning i had a bit of brown spotting streaked in discharge on the tp. I havent had any spotting until now. Luckily it was the same day of our appointment. My OB is wonderful. I just love her. She did an u/s and she wasn't able to see a heartbeat. She scheduled me for another u/s in a week and she ordered some blood work done to check my hormone levels.
I know it's possibly too early for a hearbeat, but this in conjunction with the alarming spotting and cramping has me so worried :( im going to try to stay positive, but it's going to be hard.
In the meantime, i've been pretty nauseous the past couple of days and exhausted. im hoping my pregnancy symptoms, as miserable as they've been, continue this week as some reassurance. I wonder if anyone has a similar experience with a missing heartbeat early on that turned out positively? we'll just have to wait and see i guess.
