Last Friday, at 5w6d I went for an ultrasound (vaginal) to confirm pregnancy. I am sure of my date of conception as I conceived through IVF. They told me that it was a 4w3d pregnancy, with no embryo or vesicule to be seen. only an empty sac. Tiny sac: 1.3mm.
I came back home devastated: I am 42, this is my 3rd and last IVF. Spend the WE doing all the things you are not supposed to do when pregnant. And cried myself out.
On Tuesday, at 6w3d I went to confirm the diagnosis and see for the further steps to my ob-gyn. She told me that she was not ok with the diagnosis and that according to the us pictures I was a bit further than 4w3d. She proceeded to another vaginal us: there was an embryo, but too small, only 3,3mm. No heartbeat. She was telling me that it was definitely bad and that I was likely to loose the pregnancy, but that there was still a tiny hope. She put me on rest.
And this afternoon, at 6w5d I went back as requested and she found an heartbeat of 119 bpm. O gosh, I cried like a pussy. the embryo is now 7.8 mm. The ob-gyn says that it is still a bit late by it is catching over. I have to come back in a week but the odds are far better today than they were 2 days ago.
During those 2 days this site and all those stories helped me SO much. Thanks guys.
