I'm currently should be 8 ish weeks pregnant. I had a scan a week ago, knowing i was about 7 weeks based on my late ovulation but based on my lmp, they would think 8 weeks. She said she could only see a sac measuring 5 weeks, 2 days. So i said well i can't be 5 weeks pregnant so thats bad news then. She said no, it's just too early and then i talked to her about my dates. She said i was measuring 5 weeks fetal age, well actually she mentioned since ovulation. I have no idea why she wouldn't measure gestational age as since i came home and googled the crap out of everything, that seems to be more standard. So i guess 5 fetal weeks equals 7 gestational weeks but it doesn't change the fact only a gestational sac was seen.
Doctor was not there so she said she'd contact me if they thought we should draw blood but otherwise just come back in three weeks. So i haven't heard a thing and am now 1 week into the waiting game. I've never had a scan so early in any previous pregnancy, first was 9-10 weeks and second was 14 weeks. Based on all my googling (i know i shouldn't) it could be good or bad news. Some ladies don't see a thing until 9-10 weeks after being told there was nothing there. Some do indeed have a blighted ovum. I know you can still feel very much pregnant with the latter outcome and i do. I've bigger boobs, bloating, tired and lower back cramps on and off. I had those cramps with my 2 other pregnancies so that can't even be a sign telling me things aren't right.
I'm feeling so anxious and sad one minute and then positive the next depending on what i read. The waiting is horrible.
