I went for my first u/s yesterday. The U/S tech had me really worried; but I got a call from my doctor that she thinks everything is progressing well. I should have been 6 weeks + 4 days. Baby measured 5+5. There is a HB, but the U/S tech said it was hard to measure; she is guessing it is about 100. Because baby was measuring small and the HB was hard to find, I have to go back in a week for another scan.
But, the tech made it seem like I should be worried; she kept saying my ovulation date was probably just later than I thought and everytime she gave me a measurement for anything I would ask if it was a good number and she basically gave me non-answers. She said at the end, the doctor will call you and you will probably have to get another scan.
So, I was on egg shells and waiting for a call. In the mean time, I of course googled and learned that a HB of 100 at 6- 8 weeks re****ed in 50% miscarriage rate. So, then I got a call from the doctor.
Baby is measuring small, but the fact they found a HB at that size is great news. She also stressed that it's easy for the measurement to be off at this point just because the baby is so small. So, I do go back in a week for scan two and just hope the baby has caught up and the HB has gotten stronger.
