Hello! I am excited to be here and hoping I get to hang around. I had my third IUI on 11/25, and something that cycle worked!
I am posting because I am a little shaken up and trying to figure out what to do following an ultrasound I had this morning. My RE agreed to have me come in today since we'll be out of town for the holidays (ordinarily he would have had me come in early next week). Overall, I am glad we did it because we found out how many (1) and where (right spot), but I knew we could end up with uneasiness doing an u/s this early. The RE saw a yolk sack but no fetal pole. He said that in over 50% of pregnancies that result in live births, he would see a fetal pole at this point. He suggested trying to get an u/s next week when we'll be visiting family out of town.
We are having trouble figuring out what to do, mainly because the RE we saw is not our usual doc (ours is on vacation)--I know that I would trust my doctor to give us research-backed advice, and this RE may be more alarmist than ours (which I love about our doc--realist but not alarmist). I am worried that if we get another u/s with another doctor, we'll just end up in the same situation--unsure of how to interpret the results we are given. From internet research, it seems like fetal pole is typically visible between 5.5 and 6.5 weeks, so I don't quite understand why I should be worried now. I just don't know.
Any words of wisdom (or hugs)?
