PLEASE HELP!! 1st pregnancy with pcos, 5w+5d

Postby Wishful » Mon Aug 31, 2015 4:37 pm

hi ladies,


my name is sherri, I am 29 years old and have pcos. I have been trying to conceive for 4 years. I have had 2 miscarriages and fertility treatments over the past couple of years with no success. I have finally fell pregnant after so long with no medication or no fertility treatments!! (I believe what helped me was fertilitea)

I am 5w+5d, I did an ultrasound today but technician only saw an empty gestational sac, is this normal?

I'm so sorry for your losses!

It sounds like you fall in the range of normal, particularly if you may have ovulated late. It is often possible to see a yolk sac by late in week 5, but I would imagine this could depend on the experience/skill of your ultrasound technician with OB ultrasounds, and if you ovulated or implanted a day or two "late" it simply might not be visible yet.

The heartbeat will not develop until week 6, and even at that point it's very difficult to see unless you get a transvaginal ultrasound. This is why most OBs will not schedule an initial appointment until 8 or 9 weeks, at which point they can more easily find the embryo with heartbeat and yolk sac :)

Take a deep breath, there is a very high chance everything is okay :) Do you have a follow up appointment/ultrasound? Did they do any blood work? Both could help put your mind at ease, and if you did not get either one you should be able to request them.

Best wishes, keep us updated! :)

Thanks FrostedFuji, I was freaking out a bit. Positive hpt pregnancy test on Aug 19th. HCG on Aug 20th was 200 and Aug 24th HCG was 1229. I am supposed to go back in next Wednesday to do another ultrasound, will definitely update.

I just came back not too long ago from my ultrasound, and I saw the baby and the heartbeat. The baby is measuring at about 6w6d!! =) The doctor said everything is looking good and the heartbeat is over 100. My doctor wants me to go back in again next wednesday for another ultrasound, she wants to monitor me closely due to my history.

That is so wonderful, congratulations!

You might find some good companionship over on the April due date club board, I'm sure there are several women there who are around the same stage you are. It has been so wonderful for me to be able to "hang out" online with other women going through the same things I am around the same time.

I am so happy and relieved for you that everything looks great so far. Have a happy & healthy nine months!
