Well... (poss m/c mentioned) Updated

I just got home from the u/s... she still couldn't see anything. It looked the same as last time. She said our dates could be off a month, but I don't think so. I know when I ovulated since we were trying. They took blood for progesterone and hormone levels... I will get the results of that tomorrow before I leave. She said depending on that we will do a vaginal u/s but I won't be able to do that until after we get home from Hawaii, which means I'm going to be in limbo for 12 days. This is absolutely breaking my heart. As nervous as I was, I actually thought I was going to go in and see a baby today.

Update: Well they're putting me on progesterone supplements... the numbers aren't good though. I asked and they are 4.5 for progesterone and only 22,000 for hcg. Not the ray of hope I was really hoping for. I'm leaving soon to hit the pharmacy then head to the airport... I'll check in while I'm there I'm sure. Girls I gotta tell you, I'm losing hope.

UGH - I am so sorry. That sounds so hard to go through. Why wouldn't they just do a vag u/s today?! It sucks to be in limbo for that long and try to enjoy yourself on vacation in the mean time.

I really expected the same thing as you.

Oh Jaime, no! I'm so sorry! I'm a bit muddled, though--so they haven't done a transvag one yet? And when you say they see nothing, is it totally nothing?

A 12 day wait is awful! Again, I'm sorry! :bighug:

They only have a u/s tech on Tuesdays... so the earliest I can get one is July 12th, the day I was supposed to get my NT scan. Thinking about it, I could be possibly 10 days earlier than I thought, depending on implantation. I know when I ovulated and I know when we had sex... so I just don't know what to do or think.

Could they still see the sac? How was it measuring?

I am so, so, sorry that you didn't get that reassurance you wanted before leaving but I know crappy abdominal machines are tough for those untrained. Did you see the nurse again?

Oh Jamie, I am so sorry. Not knowing is bad enough, but for 12 days? While on vacation?

There isn't some other u/s place you can go today? or tomorrow? They can't get a stat on your bloodwork?

I know you were so excited to see a baby, I don't know what to say.

I thought I saw the same thing as last time but when I asked the nurse what she saw she said "well I saw the uterus". Sigh. I could be 7 weeks 5 days instead of 9 weeks 1 day but I feel like we should have seen some difference in 2 weeks, you know? Gah. I hope that when my levels come back tomorrow they are consistent with that and I'll know more.

Wait, that's all she said?!?!?! That seems a little insensitive to me. How can that be all she said?

Why won't she get a doctor when that happens??? Grrr. I'm mad and sad for you!

At my office the doctors use the machines and would never let a nurse do it or send ne home with that news.

I know she was being nice by doing the abdominal but gosh, just messier!

I'm sure that the fact that this wasn't a real appointment played in to some of that... but I really wish I hadn't even had an an ultrasound in the first place now. DH is mad I don't have more answers (not at me) and I'm just frustrated... I've decided to have a positive attitude about it. I still feel/look pregnant so I'm going with I AM and are until I have proof otherwise.

Oh no I'm sorry your going through this, 12 days is a long time to be in limbo, how frusterating! Too bad she didn't do the transvaginal right then. I hope you get some good news when you get back from vacation and I'm glad you have a positive attitude :bigarmhug:

lurker- I'm so sorry you're going through this. :bighug:

When I was pg with DS, they couldn't see anything either through an abdominal u/s at 12 weeks. Freaked me out, but then the OB switched to transvaginal and sure enough, everything was just fine. I wish they could have done that for you. Sad I'm praying that everything turns out well.

I think that's the right attitude, Jaime! I think things are going to turn out perfect for you. It's just a well intentioned nurse without proper training and a crappy machine.

Thanks ladies. I feel like crud right now (nausea!) and I'm taking all my symptoms as a good sign. Boobs are still killing me, etc etc. I'm banking on my numbers tomorrow being good so I can go to Hawaii happy... plus I was thinking... yeah 12 days sucks... but... it could be a lot worse... I'll be in freaking Hawaii!

Op...just saw your update!

I don't know much about the numbers based on where you are but I do know you can't tell much by 1 number. Hold on to that hope, girl, things are still in your corner!
