I went in for an early ultrasound when I called my doctor complaining about cramping. When I went in I was 5 weeks 5 days and all they could see on the internal ultrasound was the gestational sac, no fetal pole or yolk sac. I spent the next week completely freaking out, only to go back and have them find the heartbeat at 6 weeks 5 days. The tech told me I must have ovulated a few days late, but when I went in for my 20 week ultraound, I was measuring exactly right according to my LMP. I'm now 20 weeks pregnant with a healthy baby girl, and all that worrying was for nothing.
At 6 wks it waaay to early.Don't freak out,relax & wait 4 your next appt.Checked your hcg levels & compare.I hope everything comes out o.k....nanis
Thanks for that. I've never experienced a mc so I'm totally freaking out over here. With my other two daughters my pgs were very easy and because I wasn't even seen until I was 8-10 weeks pg I didn't have this sort of stuff to worry about. I'm regretting now even having called about the spotting after sex because I'm making myself sick with worry that something may be wrong.
She has me scheduled to come back this Thursday for another us but I'm afraid that may even be too early. My original app't was supposed to be on 10/18. I'm afraid if I go back this week and they see nothing they are going to try to push me towards a D&C and I'm not ready to do that. We leave the 20th to take our girls to walt disney world and now I'm wondering if I should just postpone my app't until we get home because I'm scared.
Maybe you should go ahead & go in on Thursday to put your mind at ease. You could very well see a hb. Even if there is no hb it could still be too early & you don't have to decide on a d&c right then. I don't think you should cancel your trip either. You and your family are probably really looking forward to it, especially your little ones. You will need it to get your mind off of what's going on & you won't have many more chances to go again before this little baby is born in 9 months! :) I also agree with you about the ovulation. It's highly likely that you ovulated late & the baby isn't as far along as they think due to lmp.
The hcg could still tell you a lot, even with 4 days difference--maybe you wouldn't even have to go for u/s if it's all doubling nicely. There are calculators that you put in the numbers and the days apart and it gives you 'doubling rate' in days/hours actually which should be around 48 (not longer). They should have that number the same day I would think (Monday) if you can get the labslip clarified so they run it Monday. Why couldn't they have just called over the dr's office right then?
