First u/s....small fetal pole

Postby ajb38 » Fri May 12, 2017 7:37 am

I am 6 weeks 5 days today. I got pregnant via IUI. Had my first ultrasound this morning. The babies heartbeat is pretty strong at 120 but the fetal pole is measuring at only 6 weeks. I have to go back in a week and hopefully by then we will see some growth. Anyone else have experience with this?

I'm sorry I don't have much experience but it's my understanding that anything plus or minus a week is considered okay.

Thank you for the reply. I most certainly hope that it the case.

Just an update. Had my 2nd ultrasound yesterday and the fetal pole had only grown by one day in a week and the heartbeat is weaker. Will go in for d&c the first part of next week.
