  • Thank you ladies!

    We're still up in the air. Ugh! We saw a heartbeat (which was amazing!) but it was only 89. They want it over 100 I guess. The sac is measuring 6w1d and the baby is measuring 5w6d. They're concerned that there's a discrepancy between the sac and the baby. And I should be 6w5d so everything is measuring behind.

    They also saw a second gestational sac without a heartbeat. Crazy!

    I wish I could say I'm completely comfortable but I'm really terrified of losing this especially seeing the heart flicker.

    Next ultrasound is next Thursday. I hope my little booger picks up speed.

  • That's awesome you got to see the heartbeat! Sorry to hear you're still kind of in limbo and that the second sac didn't show a heartbeat. TP's that everything looks perfect next week.

  • No personal experience exactly, but I feel like that early with things so small yet constantly growing its easy for measurements to be off track.  Plus, different people could measure things differently.  I remember with Tommy I once had two ultrasounds in one day due to an SCH bleeding scare.  The doc who measured me during early morning hours said I measured 6 weeks 1 day (I was 6 weeks 5 days ). The doc who measured me four hours later measured me at 6 weeks 5 days. Go figure.  (Big hugs). Hopefully your LO is just taking his/her time!

  • Katt, so glad you were able to see a heartbeat but wish it could have been more sure.

     I hope everything looks great at you next check!

    Anyone ever measured behind and caught back up?


    Me, me, me!!! :)  I now have a healthy 6 month old that they thought was a blighted ovum.  Most of it's in my siggy, but in a nutshell ...

    I had a decent beta that never doubled in 48.  It was always a little slow to rise.  They did the first u/s at 5w5d and saw a small sac that they thought was a little too small (and nothing else).  They thought maybe it was too early (beta was 2000) so brought me back a week later.  Sac was bigger and they searched for awhile but found nothing in the sac.  It was empty.  That was 6w5d.  Went back at 7w1d and we saw a yolk sac and fetal pole but no heartbeat.  Saw a hb at 7w5d but it wasn't measurable.  At 8.5weeks we finally saw a measurable heartbeat and a babe that was measuring only a day or two behind.  The entire time up to that he measured a full week behind and with IVF that shouldn't have been (according to the RE). 

    The crazy part was at the 7w5d u/s they didn't see much, we were talking about scheduling a D&C and he wanted to do one more scan.  He had me push down on my bellybutton really hard and that's when life changed.  There was the baby with a heartbeat.  He was still measuring behind but he was there. 

    We've never gotten an explanation as to why it all went that way, but it did.  He's still small (as of 6 months he's 0% on weight and 2% for height) so maybe he's just been little from the get go.

    Don't give up hope!!

    Don't give up hope!!

    I was actually thinking of you but I couldn't remember your exact story, so thank you for stopping in.  It appears that for where I'm measuring the heart rate is within range, so it's just concerning now that I'm measuring behind.

    However, this is all being done through a regular OB office, and they are clearly not used to seeing patients this early, so I kind of question what they are telling me.  

    So I'm trying  not to worry about it, because that won't help anything anyway.  Just hoping and praying everything continues to grow and look fantastic next week!

     Thank you!!

  • I've got my fingers crossed for you.  I'm sorry if this has already been said, but was this a result of IVF??

    I remember searching and everything (including my RE) said measuring a full week behind with IVF wasn't a good thing.  But apparently my little boy was just stubborn and on his own growth curve (still is) or just wasn't giving us a great shot.  Everything is so small at this stage and subjective in my opinion.

    Keep us updated, please!  Will keep you in my thoughts! :)

  • So sorry you are still in limbo, but that's great that there is a hb! A two day discrepancy between the sac and the baby doesn't seem like a big deal to me - it could just be measurement error. Also, I did some googling and read that a normal hb at 6-7 weeks is 90-110, so you are right at the end of the normal range just shy of six weeks. I think it sounds promising! Thinking of you!
