I had my first ultrasound Wednesday. Between temping/opk, I knew I'd ovulated September 21/22 and should have been 9w2d. Transvaginal found nothing but a sac and yolk, no baby. Tested hcg on Wednesday and again today - dropped from 59k to 49k. Accordingly to my OB, there's no chance baby is just hiding somewhere in my retroflexed uterus.
So we wait. I elected to wait it out for at least a few weeks and see if my body could figure it out. I've had no cramping, no spotting (minimal at 6w, but nothing lately). So it's just a weird bizarre waiting game with a broken heart, yet no closure.
For those of you who are experiencing/did experience this waiting game, what did you do? Did you return to your pre-pregnancy exercise routine? Did you start drinking again? Did you hold out hope that maybe, just maybe, it'll be one of those weird stories you read online about a baby showing up perfectly healthy on an ultrasound a few weeks later? A long gym/hot tub session followed by a glass of wine (prepregnancy therapy) sound perfect right now...but what if?????!?
