*Update from U/S today*
We didn't get good news today. Apparently over the last 7 days the little bean only grew 2 days. The heartbeat is just up to 80 bmp now. The doctor will not do anything until there isn't a heartbeat. I understand this but hate being in this limbo of when will this happen. She still wants me to take the progesterone and go on like everything is fine. I go back in for another U/S the Monday after Thanksgiving but will most likely miscarry before then. I'm doing okay with the news and consider myself lucky that it took us just one month to get pregnant. I am certainly going through the healing process but am eager to try again soon. Good luck to you all...I'm going to try to stay away from the internet for a while. I'll check on you all throughout your journey's and will come back to let you guys know what new board I'll be a member of next time;). Don't worry about taking your siggies away I'm happy for all of your successful pregnancies!
Okay...I am making myself crazy. I'll try to make sense of all that has happened through this long but short pregnancy! I tested positive (after several negative tests) 7 days after my missed period. I was not sure of my cycle and just assumed that my BFP showed late. I haven't been sick but have had really sore bbs. OK so fast forward to this past THursday (10/10/11). I got to my first sonogram. I thought I was exactly 8 weeks pregnant. Well the ultrasound showed I'm measuring 5 weeks 6 days. They were able to see a fetal pole and a slow fetal heart beat of 73 bpm. I also just found out that my progesterone is 7. I started take the pills for that today.
The Doc just is assuming I'm off on my dates...or this could be chromosomial abnormalities if my dates are right. I honestly just assumed i had a 28 days cycle since I conceived the first month ttc and off BC. So my question is...could the late positive test mean I ovulate late? And would this make the 5w6d measurement make sense? OR could this be a slow growing fetus...and thats also why I got a BFP so late? And the low progesterone meaning a miscarraige is coming?
Any HELP?! I'm going crazy. I go in for my follow up ultrasound THursday. I know that I will (hopefully) know for sure what the deal is...but until then...any help? I've made myself nuts looking online too!
