I just wanted to introduce myself & share my story, it may be too long sorry about that
My name is D. I am 40 turning 41 in March. I finally met the love of my life 3 years ago and finally got married. and decided to take out my IUD .
We did not get pregnant. So after 3 years I figured it was not meant to be and id continue along my career path as we are both professional Athetes I grieved a lot and put the idea completely out of my mind. as I had decided if it did not happen naturally I just would not be a mommy.
Iv been able to compete with girls half my age and still have success so I put having a baby out of my mind completey & forged on with my career. and low and behold My husband and I don't see eachother for 3 weeks, have sex 1 day he leaves out of the country, I go on a well needed cruise/vaca with the girls just to come back and find out im Pregant.
I am now 5 1.2 or 6 weeks and am SO excited but really really nervous and scared, it came as a complete shock as we tried everyday for 3 years and nothing, I spent thousands on Home test, and this last time when I took it I wasn't expecting to see anything (for the first time in 3 years)
For me it really came true what they say about not trying and then it happening. I never beleived in that old wives tale until it happened to me.
Anway I am complete OCD and because of the drinks I had on vaca, the benzos for the plane ride and the pain meds I had taken for a injured neck was completly freaking out and have spent 5 miserable days on the web seeking answers trying to make sure I did not harm my baby.
I have been having weird pains in my right side (before) I knew and it is still painful underneacth my right rib cage and lower back at time. I went to ER they did a Vaginal ultrasound everything looked perfect even a little fetal pole but no heart beat. nothing in my kidneys or liver
2 days later I got sick and went back to the docs for light brown discharge, they said everything looks fine onyl still not heart beat.. I realzie its to soon, but I have another VUS for monday to see that heart beat, IM scared & nervous because my obg said if we do not see it then I could be in trouble, as for 5/12 6 weeks my baby is developing so their should be a heart beat. Also I have a bad cold so I have not been excersizing. I am wondering if my baby is not getting a heart beat because of my own body and lack of current excersize.
If anyone has any expierience with this id love to hear from you
Hi and welcome, I glad you found JM and I'm sorry none of us got a reply to you sooner.
Have you had your follow up and if so how did it go? The heartbeat will normally be detecting at 6 weeks, but even a day can make a big difference this early on so if you went in at 5.5 weeks, then I wouldn't have expected you'd see anything.
I hope all is well and that you're able to check back in with us and let us know how you're doing.
