Waiting...again

I am just over 7 weeks by calendar. We had an U/S today and the good news is in addition to the yolk sac, we saw the fetal pole at just under 4mm today. The bad news is no heartbeat yet. Dr said measuring at 6 weeks and re-scan Monday since by size I am not yet as far along as the calendar. This scared the bejesus out of me and I went and found an article on my most trusted site for information to calm me down: americanpregnancy.org

http://www.americanpregnancy.org/pregnancycomplications/earlyfetaldevelopment.htm

The article says at 7 weeks it can be a healthy pregnancy with no signs of heartbeat if the fetal pole is under 5mm....just need to recheck in 5-7 days. My RE has scheduled the follow-up on Monday. I am so tired of waiting and so worried.

Help me with good thoughts and vibes to make it through this long week/weekend.

Good luck over and over Smile I agree, KEEP BUSY!! Clean out your linen cupboard, tidy your pantry, do a sort and chuck. Then you have an organised house and no time to worry x
