Hi everyone. This is my first pregnancy. I haven't posted much, mainly because I was trying to stay away from reading things that would make me worry. However staying away hasn't helped because after a dr. visit yesterday I'm more worried than ever.
I went for a MFM consult yesterday since I'm considered high risk at 36. The consult went well until the Dr. decided to do my first ultrasound. She did a transvaginal. I was suppose to be 7 weeks 1 day as of yesterday. She could only find the yolk sac but no fetal pole. She said my ultrasound was only showing about 5 weeks. She said one of two things was happening. I either ovulated late in my cycle and i'm only 5 weeks or I have a blighted ovum. She sent me for blood work to check my HCG levels and then I have to get them checked again tomorrow afternoon. She said if they show they are doubling that we can wait a week or 2 and do another ultrasound, if they are leveling off or declining then its a blighted ovum.
I'm still in a little shock and i'm very nervous and scared. I don't want to give up on this pregnancy, not yet but i don't know what to do or think. I went back and checked my charts (DH and I have been TTC for 1 1/2 years) and I do ovulate later then the average 14 days. I usually O between day 17 and day 21. So when I checked my chart from last month DH and I did sex on cycle day 17 and 21. When I count from those days I would be only about 5 weeks. So is this possible that they were that far off on my due date and I have hope? When I check my chart based on the original due date and the time I would have conceived DH and i did not sex.
I guess what i'm looking for is just your opinion if its possible that they could be 2 weeks off on my due date and i'm just earlier then I thought and there is still hope. The waiting and trying not to think about it is killing me.
thanks ladies for listening.
