Good news/ Bad news

Had my u/s today. Good news is we saw a gestational sac. Bad news is it isn't shaped the way it should be. So much for getting reassurance today. Doc said it could go either way. I go back next Wednesday. Praying we see a heartbeat but at the very least the sac should be bigger and there should a be a yolk sac if things are going okay. I'm just over all this. So emotionally drained. I feel kind of numb Sad

((HUGS)) I totally understand. I am scared to death of ultrasounds when pregnant. I've been able to see heartbeats with each of my pregnancies but I always seem to get bad news at the next ultrasound. You just have to have faith that everything will be okay even though it's really hard not to worry. Worrying won't change anything and honestly, early ultrasounds aren't very reliable. With my second pregnancy, I was told that I was going to m/c, that there was no fetal pole and the yolk sac was too big. I was devastated....I decided to get a second opinion since I was still feeling very much pregnant and guess what....a freaking heartbeat! I ended m/c but not until several weeks later and it was most likely because of my blood clotting disorder and not because there was anything wrong with the baby. Anyway, I guess I'm trying to give you some hope....just because a doctor tells you something doesn't look or seem right does not automatically mean it's true.

Oh Belinda, I'm so sorry Sad

I will be crossing my fingers and toes that your next u/s brings better news. Like some of the girls said, maybe it was just too early? Or it could be the tech? There are some bad ones out there, such as the one who completely missed my sister's ectopic pregnancy when there was a blighted ovum in her uterus. A friend of mine is an u/s tech and she said she always checks the fallopian tubes, no matter what.

Sending you big hugs!!!

((((hugs)))) I am sending you tons of prayers and good thoughts tonight. I think little Candy Corn, being that she is due on Halloween, has lots of tricks up her sleeve. She's gonna be one bad little girl. Wink CC! Stop causing your mama to have a heart attack and straighten up in there!

Don't worry too much Belinda, I had my first u/s done at 5 and 1/2 weeks and there wasn't a yolk sac yet either. Went back 2 weeks later and saw the beating heart!! I'm 16w1d now! I wish you the very best!!

Early USes seem to cause unnecessary stress more often than not! I have known tons of girls that got bad news during early USes, only to come back the next week and see absolutely nothing was wrong whatsoever; US is an inaccurate technology and that is that! It is helpful most of the time but misleading many times as well. Try to keep positive! I wish you the best as you wait.

Thank you all so much for the king words and prayers! I really needed it! It's also nice to know u/s's have not always been right. Just going to pray like crazy that my LO is okay!

belinda! i'm sorry you got a scare today. I'm praying for you that next week will be better. on my us for DS he was on the small side like a week behind. well he was born on time and perfectaly normal. I think he was looking at the "chart" according to when most women ovulate (14 days) and I ovulate at about 19 days so it pushed everything back about 5 days and that's how much smaller he was. my dr was "concerned" but i wasn't cuz i knew when i o'd and he wouldn't listen to me. chin up i bet it's something dumb like that Wink
