DILEMA #1… Should I still have hope or accept the fact we have an angel baby?
Today DH and I woke up giddy and happily ready to see our little bean(s). When we arrived at the clinic, the tech took us directly in for the scan. As the U/S began, I could see the love and joy on my DH’s face. I remained quiet and hopeful praying that we would soon see our little bean and hear a heartbeat. Unfortunately, this was not the case. As the tech continued w/ her preliminary scan I said “I see an empty sac is that what you see? She stated I’m not sure yet, I will have the RE come in to speak w/ you. Immediately DH said what's wrong? Aren't we supposed to hear a heartbeat today? The tech remained silent, left the room, and reported back w/ the RE.
The RE came in w/ a doom and gloom facial expression!! During the second scan, the RE stated at this point we should see a fetus and hear a heartbeat as well. RE further stated that there may possibly be a fetus (late implanter) or a fetus that has stopped growing. I then explained to the RE that I had been under the care of my PMD for the last two weeks and that the BETA numbers had been doubling perfectly as of this past Friday. RE then suggested that I continue taking the progesterone and have another beta today. I was told to remain hopeful and to come back next week for a second U/S.
At this point I am mentally drained!! RE says the baby may be a late implanter or has stop growing!! I am ALL confused!! I guess ANYTHING is possible. God I am still praying baby is ok!!!
DILEMA #2 TRAVEL or not TRAVEL?
Now, DH and I had plans to fly to PARIS tomorrow for 5 days and then over to London for an additional five days!!! I really don't know if I should go if I am threatening a miscarriage!! At the time this trip was scheduled we thought we would be in the clear and I would be able to travel. We will return on 1/30, what would you do?
