I'm still not sure if everything is ok or not after the ultrasound. I guess the good news is they didn't say it was over or anything. When she first started, all I saw was an empty sac and I almost started crying. She looked around for a few minutes without saying anything. Finally she said that she saw the sac and the yolk sac, but couldn't see a heartbeat. She didn't mention the fetal pole. She measured the sac and said it measured 5 weeks 3 days (I am 6 weeks). After searching some more, she then claimed that she saw a flashing blip that was the heartbeat. I honestly saw nothing, but Ryan said he saw it where she was pointing. I don't know though.
The dr said that it was really too soon to know for sure, but that the yolk sac looked good and that was a good sign. I told her I thought I might have ovulated a couple of days later the cd14 so that could explain why I was measuring a bit behind and she said that was good news. But in the end she said that we were doing everything we could (with the progesterone, etc) and that we would just have to hope for the best. She was nice about it, but I don't know how to feel. I was really hoping for something more concrete. But I knew that 6 weeks was awfully early and that it doesn't necessarily mean anything bad not to see more at 6 weeks.
Anyway, I have another ultrasound scheduled for a week from Monday. So I guess I just have to wait for then to know more.

I agree!!! I didn't see a h/b even at 7 weeks, so you may just have a little bean who is taking his time!!! Try to keep yourself busy for a week...although I know there is little else you can think about!!
We'll be thinking of you and I hope you get nothing but good news in a week!!!
I'm sorry that you don't feel much more positive after your ultrasound! I have never had an early ultrasound for this reason alone... I am such a stressful pregnant woman, that I knew I couldn't handle having a scan and not having any concrete information coming from it. BUT i am pretty sure they wouldn't have said they saw a h/b if they weren't SURE they had seen it! Measuring 5w3d when you are 6w doesn't really mean anything bad - like you said you could have ovulated later, or you could have implanted later! The next scan you have will give you a much more accurate picture, and i would imagine there would definately be a heartbeat visible by then?
I'm keeping you in my thoughts hun, i know how hard the waiting is during pregnancy - especially between scan's, but try to think positive.. though i know that's a lot easier said than done after you've experienced pregnancy loss/es... We are all here for you, so vent away whenever you need to!
hang in there I know its hard, I bet next week will be alot better. Hugs!
