Hi to all,
I was told last week on the 5th of March that I had an empty gestational sac at my first scan,five weeks and five days. This was my third embryo transfer from ivf. I can't described the heartache and tears that followed, it was my 38th birthday and I was being told it was all over. The nurse who scanned me said how sorry she was and discussed a d&c in a follow up call.I asked her could my tipped uterus be a factor. She said that wouldn't make a difference. My partner and I went into plan for the next round mode and I pulled myself together. I found this site and cried some more but found great support from everyone's stories.
We had the follow up scan this morning, in our minds it was a courtesy scan to confirm the inevitable. However immediately we spotted a blob,a circle and a heartbeat. I cried and my partner swore in shock. He nearly cried too. I asked could it have been due to my retroverted uterus and she said not a chance, she even said she asked the gynae last week and he said not a chance, most likely a blighted ovum. I honestly believe our tiny baby to be was hiding ' down the back' of my tipped uterus. I know we are not out of the woods but I have huge hope we can make it. I caution anyone being scanned so early to bide their time and have hope. This site is a blessing. Thank you so much to everyone who posted their stories for the comfort it gave me during such a horrible lonely time. Xxxx
