I had my first ultrasound today and they found a sack and a "baby" but no heartbeat. I am technically 6 weeks and 3 days according to my LMP, but I think I'm a few days less based on ovulation. My doctor thinks I am miscarrying though because he claims my numbers are high enough that they should have been able to see a heartbeat. I don't really know what to think yet. I thought I was on the border of being able to see a heartbeat or not, so I was a little surprised by the doctors doom and gloom attitude. He was already talking D&C. So anyways, my next step is another blood test on Monday followed by an appointment that afternoon. Fingers crossed that my numbers are still going up and that the baby's heartbeat just hasn't started yet. It's going to be a really long weekend.

I'm so sorry you didn't get to see your baby's heartbeat today and for your dr's gloomy attitude. I had a specialist who was a bit like that so I know how that can make you feel. I'll be thinking of you and your little one and hopefully you will get good numbers come Monday and see that beating heart. To help pass the time, give your beautiful daughter a few extra hugs. Hugs to you.

I know how you feel hopefully at the next appt they can see a heartbeat. Don't you just want to smack them when they start talking D&C right away - even if we are miscarrying they need to give us time to process it - it makes me mad when they are like that.

Yes, the whole appointment really ticked me off. I'm barely 6 weeks. Based on LMP, I was 6 weeks, 3 days, but I ovulated several days later than usual and I've been having 30 day cycles, not 28. So, I could actually be a little under 6 weeks. I think that's hardly far enough along to make a big dramatic show over not seeing a heartbeat. They were so negative though - the first thing the doctor said to me was "this report looks really bad". Uhm.. gee, thanks! Even the tech said it might just be too early. It would have been better if they had just said, it's possible that you are not as far along as you think and we'd like to follow up with another ultrasound in a week and some bloodwork in the meantime. that would not have freaked me out as bad.

Yeah he should have just showed you the baby and said to come back next week for another ultrasoud to confirm the due date or something like that.

thats like my dr - last week he was like you should be 8w 2d. I said no I should be 7 exactly (I know I didn't O when they said I did cause DH wasnt even home and I certainly didnt get myself pregnant - lol).I said and last time you saw me you said I was between 4&5 weeks closer to 4 when you did the ultrasound and that was three weeks ago - then he was like I was wrong you were 5 to 6 - NO I WASN"T. then it made me mad to becasue my last hcg (which they don't even have the results of - cause it was in the ER when I went for stomach flu) were 19,800 so he did blood again ant it was 61, 875 (2 weeks later - so yes that is low - but the only HCG they have record of is my very first one that was 96.6 and that was around 3 weeks 5 days or so) they were like you need a D&C right away becasue an hcg of 61,875 confirms a miscarriage - it does not -yes it should be higher but that doesn't confirm **** when you have basically nothing to compair it to. HELLO I am not an idiot and you are not going to convince me that this is some emergnecy - it certaintly isn't the first time I have been through this. Sorry for my vent on your post.

I'm sorry you were treated that way, Leanne. I hope the weekend goes by quickly and you get conclusive news, either way. The waiting part sucks. I'll be sending T&P your way.

Vent away Shannon!!! I love how they argue the dates. I mentioned today that I was under 6 weeks according to ovulation and they said well, the measurements are more reliable. So, my egg went through a time warp or what???

Leanne I am sorry you are going through this. when I was pregnant with harleigh they argued the dates too. I argued back. Because with the EDD they chose, that means I got my ept when I hadn't even ovulated yet.
I hope things get figured out soon, I also think that you may be too early.

Thanks ladies. I'm feeling a little less optimistic today. The brown spotting has started back up again. There's never anything much on the liner, but every time I wipe, it's there. It's really disheartening at this point. I'm still holding out for a miracle, but I think I pretty much know it's over. I also found out when I called the nurse back that there was no fetal pole found either according to the report. I could have sworn the tech said she found the baby, but I guess she was just referring to the sack? I'll update on Wednesday when I know more.
