My name is Kelly, and the past few weeks your website has been SO unbelievably comforting and helpful to me.
First day of my last period was 10/16/14. I typically have 32+ day cycles that can sometimes be irregular.
On 11/20/14, I took a positive pregnancy test.
On 11/21/14, I went to my first prenatal appointment for a transvaginal ultrasound (all of my ultrasounds were transvaginal). Only a possible gestational sac was seen and the doctor advised me that it was too early and to come back in a few days.
On 11/24 I had another ultrasound and doctor confirmed that there was a gestational sac present, but empty at the time. Again advised that it may be too early, and ordered bloodwork.
On 11/28 I had another ultrasound and again, the gestational sac was empty and measured 17.5mm. My HCG level that day was 22,000. Doctor was very concerned, saying it was most likely a blighted ovum because we absolutely should be seeing at least a yolk sac at that point. She advised to schedule an ultrasound one week later and was not hopeful at all, saying we would schedule a D&C after the ultrasound.
On 12/5 I went for the crucial ultrasound, and immediately saw yolk sac and baby measuring 6 weeks, 4 days with a nice heart beat!!! I wanted to share this story to bring other people in my situation hope. I know how stressful all of doctor's negativity can be, and how sometimes it really is just too early! Thanks again!
