Appointment Blah

Well ugh. I told them it was too early for a sono, but based off of LMP I would be like 6.5 weeks so they insisted. Then there was an empty sack with no yolk sac or fetal pole and then I got upset even though I knew it was too early and forgot to ask any of my questions. So they drew blood to see if my hcg matched being closer to 5 weeks (which I told them I was!!) and said they would call me about setting up my next appointment. Ugh. Wish I had just waited longer.

Oh GRRRRRR! That is so totally annoying! 5 weeks is too early to see anything. Sad Why don't people believe us that we KNOW our cycles!!!!

Have you POAS yet? That's the first thing I'd do when I got home...but I'm weird.

*hugs* girl. I can understand how upset you are.

I'm going to in a bit. I do in-home childcare and left the kiddies with dh, so as soon as everyone is settled and napping I'm off to POAS!!

They wanted to schedule it after HCG results so I'm not sure yet.

OMG, I just googled "5 week ultrasound" to see what others have seen and I came across this disturbing image. LOL Seems it's from the Huggies site.

Now I can't help but think of you like that Lauren. Is that your uterus I see? Blum 3

That is a disturbing image!! That page says you should see baby via u/s at 5 weeks though. Sad But then other things say seeing nothing is normal. Why did I go???

Nothing is totally normal! My searches showed a lot of black dots with nothing inside. Baby is SO tiny. Look at your ticker. 3-5 mm. Have you LOOKED at a ruler? Also...aren't the dr. office u/s machines often not so great?

Babies grow at different rates, and even according to your ticker you babe is just 3-5 mm THAT IS TINY! plus they might not have the latest greatest US machine in office, most offices in our area generally send you out to an offsite to do the in depth US's which make me think they are either not skilled or do not have the best machines.

Stay calm, ask for an appointment in a couple weeks or so, and get another US.

ETA: LOL heather just posted basically the same thing at almost the exact same time, Great minds think alike!

You guys are so awesome! Thanks for telling me what I know, but needed to hear!! I'm not sure when I will hear results, but I would guess tomorrow. I didn't web think to ask. The Dr said lets get blood from tere and walked out and never even asked me if I had any questions. I thought he was going to come back or something. I don't know. And I was basing 5 weeks off my ticker on here, but the one on my phone using the same O date says 4 weeks 5 days which makes a huge difference! Anyways hopefully I get result very soon and I can quit making myself crazy!! Y'all are the best!! Mwah!!

Yep, your bean is COMPLETELY FINE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Smile Wow, I can't believe they made you do the ultrasound. Oh well, so you'll go back and get to see your bean later. Oh, and for the record, because I was spotting/bleeding with this pregnancy, I took a test everyday until 5 weeks to see the line getting darker. I didn't get that super dark line until 4 weeks, 6 days!! Smile

I agree with everyone else - you aren't even 5 weeks yet. That was STUPID of them to give an u/s at that timeframe!

:lurk:

With my 1st I wasnt sure of my dates. I went in for an ultrasound, great machine, trans vag and all, and all we saw was an empty sac. The doctor explained the different possibilities, but that he felt that it was just too
Early. He ordered the blood draws, and we were left scared. It came back that my levels were doubling, and they scheduled an ultrasound for a week after my first one. At that ultrasound we saw DS1, this little tad pole looking bean with a sweet little heart beat. Its amazing what a difference a week can make. Hang in there. Its tough to wait, and will be the longest couple of days, but it will all turn out ok Smile
