    Default More waiting...

    So I had my follow up scan sac has grown and measured 7 weeks. (Was 5w2d two weeks ago). There was a fetal pole that measured 4.4mm. No heartbeat. I have a tilted uterus and with the vag wand, we didn't even see the fp right away. I spotted it before the tech. She thought it was debris. I go back next Tuesday for another scan. I don't have a whole lot of hope though.

    Well I'm not totally giving up. I've been googling of course. Usually there is a detectable hb by the time the baby reaches 5mm. Since this one wasn't quite there it's possible that we just couldn't see it. Like i said before, we didn't even see the fetal pole right away. It popped up at a certain angle about 3-4 minutes after she began the scan.

    Am I silly to have hope?!?

    The larger sac is the one she measured. But out of the five images she printed, that other thing, that looks a lot like a sac, is present. The sac is smaller but am I crazy?! Do you all see that?!?

    Oh Jess, I'm so sorry you didn't get a definite answer ...I don't think you're crazy at all for hanging onto hope .

    That smaller area looks like your ovary to me...at first I thought wowsa, that sure looks like a sac with a baby in it but see the weblike divisions inside...looks just like when they do an antral follie count of my ovaries at the beginning of my cycle.

    You're right, usually no hb is expected until baby measures 5mm or greater . Really praying you just have a late bloomer !

    Oh goodness, I'm sorry the news was not great. There is always hope.

    I am no good at reading other peoples u/s. *i think* I see your uteran cavity (which is the large black) with something very tiny in the left corner, and then I see another small pocket with something much larger in it in the top right....... Not sure if I'm reading it right....it's just stuff I see.

    This is so stressful.... I can only imagine how you are feeling and trying to process this.

    When will a doctor call you, or radiologist about definitive reading based on the techs notes?

    Big hugs! It's still definitely way early, and I don't think it's totally abnormal for them not to find the heartbeat. They had a hard time finding mine at my 9 week scan, believe it or not. They saw no movement at all. I felt like she was going to shove the wand up my uterus but after some persistence she was able to see the heartbeat. I can't imagine all the stress you are going through! Baby has been sticky so far so that is definitely something to hold onto! I hope the next few days go by fast for you!

    I wouldn't give up hope yet either. I'm sorry that you didn't get the reassurance we were all hoping for. One more week, Mama, you can do this!
