I went in for my 2nd ultrasound..I wasnt sure what to expect, but I figured they would probably see nothing again. They did the TV ultrasound, and although the sac looked much bigger, she could not see anything inside. This was a different technician, and I could tell a difference. She showed me the screen and explained everything she was seeing. She said I have a midplane uterus (and Im a heavier girl) and it makes it very hard to see anything because the sac is so far away from the wand. I was disappointed, because I clearly could not see anything either, though it was murky.
She decided to try it abdominally. Lo and behold, as soon as she put the wand down on my belly, there was baby!!!! Right away you could see the heart beating too!! I was overcome with joy I put my hand to my mouth and she said "don't move, we're trying to record the heartbeat" and then she turned on the speaker and I heard the heartbeat! It was a very healthy 170 bpm. You could even see little arm buds. I finally got my picture to take with me!
So I am 7w4d, due 6/14! The other lady said I was 4w last week!
I even had a different Dr this time afterwards. She looked at the US report and said everything looks great, couldnt look better.
I cant believe that the previous tech didnt try abdominally, and that my Dr was already telling me that "you should be able to miscarry normally, there's very little tissue there..and then we can go from there and get you back on clomid"..she didnt even question the US result!
I am absolutely convinced that uterus position plays a MAJOR role in all these horribly misdiagnosed cases. I spent over a week convinced I didnt have a baby, and all that tech had to do was an abdominal US!
Im so glad I found this site, it gave me the bit of hope I needed to get through this. Now on to the next hurdle..the end of the first trimester!!
