I desperately need some encouragement right now. My DH and I went for our 6w3d ultrasound today. There was a gestational and yolk sac but no fetal pole. I immediately broke down and could not even maintain any kind of composure. The sonographer brought the OB in and she said "we should see at fetal pole at this point... I am 90% confident that you have miscarried."
She asked that I have my HCG levels checked and to do another ultrasound next Thursday. I went to lab sobbing and will go again to the lab next Monday.
Since we've been home, we've seen countless threads on many forums where women have not seen a fetal pole anywhere between 6w and 8w with their ultrasound. Many have said that 6w3d is too early for some women since embryos develop at different rates.
Also, doesn't implantation affect gestational age? We use OPK and CBEFM and it showed positive on 10/6. We got our BFP on 10/19.
I've had no signs of m/c- no cramps, no bleeding. I realize that this is characterized as a missed m/c, but guess I am looking for some kind of miracle.
Putting aside rising HCG levels, is there anyone out there who had an early u/s and did not see the fetal pole only to find that everything was okay the following u/s?
Thank your for your encouragement and support.
