Need advice please...so worried

Postby Aml51368 » Wed Oct 26, 2016 10:58 am

Hi everyone,

I'm pregnant with my 3rd child. First 2 pregnancies were healthy.

I have a concern. I went for my first ultrasound at 7 weeks but thinking iwas more like 6w4d by my calculationd. Doctor measured me at 5weeks 1day though 1 week less than what I thought. I'm still nursing baby 2 so my hormones could be off and ovulation might have occurred late. Anyways, I wasn't worried until the US. They saw a gestational sac but nothing else. Doc said at 5w1d that all they would expect to see. Blood work showed hcg at 6177 and 2days later at 9170. Doc said that's perfect. No worries yet. Well I went back a week later for a follow up US and measured 6weeKS, so a weeks growth in a week . Doc said sac looks nice, round, but no yolk sac only gestational sac is a concern. I go back in a week at which point I'll be 7w1d.
Doc said at this point I hve a 50 50 chance. It can go either way.
I have no cramping no bleeding. I feel great. Just so so worried.

Any thoughts ladies? If I don't see a fetal pole at 7w1d should I consider this a blighted ovum? Or have you heard of it showing up later?

I'm so worried.

Don't worry! It's still very early. I'm pregnant with my first and my primary doc warned me not to go to see my OB too early b/c it could cause needless worry and stress. I'm waiting until 12 weeks, per his advice. Breathe. Stress is bad for baby. :)

It's been a while since I've checked it. If anyone checks this, I wanted up give an update.
I went back at 7w and 8w and nothing. I miscarried that baby. I wasn't miscarrying naturally so I had a d and c nov 3rd. I was heartbroken!
Anyways, fast forward. My regular period returned Dec 18th and we tried again. I received my bfp January 15th and I'm now 6w0d along.
My first u/s is 2/1. And I'm anxious. But somehow feel good about this one!

Good luck at your appointment tomorrow!!! You already have that maternal instinct so if you have a good feeling about this pregnancy I am sure everything is progressing well.
