Just heard back from the midwife. We still don't know anything. She said it is good that my HCG went up, but that it could still be a blighted ovum. My progesterone was a little low (13.3) so they are putting me on supplements. To sum it all up, we still know nothing. Have to wait for the ultrasound on Thur. . . sigh. Please keep us in your prayers. We really want this baby!
I am wishing you all the best at your next appointment.
I am in the same boat and waiting to have my 3rd scan next week. I was given the possibility of mine being blighted ovum as well after the 1st scan, but at my 2nd scan we saw the fetal pole and a "flicker" which may possibly have been a heartbeat.
So again, I know what you are going through in having to wait but try not to stress.
So I can't believe I am writing this. Yesterday we went for our ultrasound. I was sick all day b/c I was soooo worried. I cried half way to the appt. So I got there, hubby met me and the midwife came in to do the ultrasound. It seemed to take FOREVER, although it was probably only a minute. We could not see the screen, but honestly, I wasn't trying to. I was looking at my precious daughter whom we adopted last year, and hoping for it to be over quickly. Finally, the midwife turns the screen towards us and points. She says "And that is your baby's heartbeat!" I immediately started crying. I cry just writing it!! She acted like she had been sure all along that everything would be fine. REALLY? A week and a half ago, she was singing a different song!! We are, of course, thrilled! I can't thank everyone enough for the support and prayers. We would really appreciate your continued prayers. Baby bean's heartbeat was a little slow. The midwife said that she thinks it is really early. They checked my progesterone again b/c that was low last time. Hopefully the prometrium is helping in that department. Not sure of a due date yet... . one step at a time!
