Don't even know where to start... I went for a what I thought was going to be an 8 week sonogram. The technician didn't tell me anything except I'm going to send this to your doctor and write immediate review so you get a call ASAP! That statement put me in a state of anxiety. I asked my fiancé if he was able to see the screen, and what did he see? He said he wasn't sure what he was looking at or looking for. But he didn't see much except the technician writing "yolk".
Turns out, when the doctor called, they can't see a baby or a heartbeat. They only saw a yolk and an empty sac. He said there is nothing much left to offer to check for a baby besides another HCG test to check my levels. He then offered a D&C. I quickly responded I'm not ready to give up and jump into doing a D&C, let's do the blood test and see. We will get the HCG results tomorrow! So I'm trying to patiently, confidently wait for the results. But I don't know how likely it is that this is a healthy pregnancy.
I wasn't prepared for this, I didn't think about how I would feel if we lost another child. I even told my fiancé "if the worst happens, I don't think I want to try for another pregnancy for a while, I need more recovery time".
Sorry for the long post, but I am curious, has anyone else dealt with this and turned out there was a baby, and went full term with a healthy baby in the end? Can everyone pray for us! And share your sweet words. I could really use some encouragement and confidence.
