Lady M, that's great news! Please do keep us posted about your situation.
I'm in a similar situation...I'm about 8 weeks with my 2nd child and upon 2 vaginal ultrasounds at 5 and 6 weeks, the gestational sac and yolk sac was seen, but no embryo. So, the doctor told me to expect a miscarriage soon....and he even recommended me to get a D&C at just 6 weeks
! I'll be getting another u/s at 9-10 weeks though.
It infuriates me as well when doctors do such early u/s's. It just doesn't make any sense to me. Now I can understand them doing the u/s to rule out ectopic pregnancy, but not to date the pregnancy at just 5-6 weeks as I hear that is too early with some women. My first pregnancy was fine and I didn't even get an ultrasound until around 12 weeks or so.
If I knew then what I know now, I would've never let my doctor do the u/s's this early on me because now I am worried SICK. I'm not having any cramping or bleeding or anything like that, so I'm staying positive...especially after reading through this site.
Anyway, good luck to you
