After being diagnosed with PCOS at 14 years old and being told I would not conceive naturally, 10 years later, surprise! I am indeed very pregnant.
At my 8 week initial OBGYN appointment, my doctor immediately admitted me in the women's pavilion at our local hospital to get my blood glucose under control. One happy and excited momma, I've been a good girl and following doctor's orders to a tee and am very satisfied with almost perfect numbers. While I was admitted, I had a beautiful scan at 9 weeks showing spot on growth and a good, strong heart beat of 190, the stronger end of "normal".
My high risk OB released me 5 days later with utmost confidence and scheduled me for a follow up appointment. At 10 wks 5 days, I went in for my ultrasound and was very relieved to see yet another seemingly beautiful scan, crying as I watched my sweet little peanut happily kicking and moving around. The baby measured at 10 wks 3 days, only 2 days behind as it has been with every scan. Having PCOS, there is no knowing exact ovulation dates, but growth has been steady and perfect all along. Strong HB of 170, again, the stronger end of "normal"! I was bright eyed and beaming when the doctor came in to talk with myself and my husband. Of course the appointment ended before my pelvic exam with me in tears and my husband very solemn.
He explained that while he was very pleased with the growth and the heartbeat, what worries him is that my yolk sac measures 7mm... And should not be more than 5. He went on with another of his analogies about my having a beautiful white house... A perfect gestational sac, spot on growth, a perfect heartbeat... My beautiful White House having a black stripe, I.e. A larger yolk sac. This could indicate chromosomal abnormalities and/or an oncoming miscarriage. He scheduled me to come back in 2 weeks, an ETERNITY! We're down to 9 days and I have googled every possible outcome. It doesn't look so good and I can barely function with all this worry.
I have not seen a single story like mine. Every situation I've read about, these babies were measuring small, with a lower heartbeat, and these poor women were only 7-9 weeks along. What gives?!? I don't know if this is a good or bad sign, but I am absolutely sick with worry and any input would help me get through these next 9 days, just having a better idea of what to expect. Any experience will help.
