Early U/S today. Driving Myself Nuts! :UPDATED:

Hey Ladies!

I'm going in to the perinatologist today for a check-up and early u/s. This is the point in my previous pregnancies where there were problems. Either I started spotting or a fetal pole/hb was not seen.

As far as symptoms, so far so good! But I had a missed m/c at 6 weeks and did not find out until week 10. So I am driving myself nuts because I want to see a hb so bad!

Well, I will KUP!

:Update: First, thanks to all you ladies for your support and encouragement! Just came back from the perinatologist. It's always interesting when I visit him because he does things totally different from my OB.

I got a transabdominal U/S. Scan shows a sac and yolk sac. Cannot see the fetal pole yet. I was all concerned but Doc is happy with what he sees so far. Sac measures 5 weeks 1 day (I'm 5w6d). Probably could have seen more with a transvaginal but he didn't want to do it. He says we should see baby next week.

So, I go back next week for another scan. Doc drew my blood for hcg to compare with the last one I had on 4/18. He says if it's over 2000 things are going as it should. He will call me as soon as he gets the results.

In the mean time, he is happy..so I guess I should relax. But I am still nervous about measuring behind by 4 days.

Fingers crossed! I would try not to worry about measuring off, especially if they didn't do it transvaginally. I know when I had mine at 6.5 weeks, they could see everything from the outside but the measurements were bang on once they did the transvaginal u/s.

After all of the encouragement, I am going to calm down! Seems like I'm "trying" to find something wrong. If doc is happy...then so far so good! I am lucky to have a peri and an OB. Between the two docs, I know they will take care of me and this pg.

Sometimes...especially with my history, it's hard not to worry. I'm going to try to enjoy this journey. Smile

I think if doc is happy.. then you are on the right track. And it sounds like they are taking excellent care of you! I say sit back and enjoy. Smile

It is hard not to worry - I so understand. But at the stage that you are at it is hard to really see everything without doing a vaginal u/s. I think it sounds good that they saw what they saw and are happy. Especially a perinatologist. Hope this week passes quickly for you and you get to see a nice strong heart beat next week Smile

Just got my HCG level back and it's 10,000! Doc says perfect for 5-6 week preg! My OB also called me today (LOL! I feel so special!) to tell me my levels (she drew hcg and progesterone too) are perfect. I am thrilled! Good news is good news! Yahoo Thanks for your support, ladies!

great news! i too know exactly how you feel. you WANT to be relieved and happy but the "what if" is just too scary to not think about. every time i went to get an u/s i always found something to worry about rather than just being happy.

i'm surprised they could see something doing a regular u/s instead of the dildo wand (my pet name for the transvag). that's great! don't worry about the dates. (didn't i just say how hard it is not to worry??)

great news!!
