Hi! I figured I should introduce myself. My name is Melissa, I'm 31 and DH is 30. We got pregnant on our first try last January but m/c in March at 11 wks (the baby only measured 6 wks 1 day). We've been TTC ever since and finally got our BFP on Friday. I believe I'm only 4 wks today since I know I ovulated late.

I had a couple questions that I hope someone can answer. Did anyone O really late (I O'd on CD 33 or 34) and still have everything turn out ok? Does anyone know if it's bad to O late and get pregnant?

Also, I scheduled an ultrasound next Wednesday and I should be 5wks and 2 days. What are the chances of the doctor seeing anything at that time? Can they see a heartbeat?

Anyway, I'm excited to move on here, but I'm so terribly scared and worried. I'm not sure I could handle another m/c at this time. Thanks for listening.

I am not sure about your first question. Well I had my first ultrasound at 7 weeks and 3 days and you could see the heart beat, I am not sure but I think I read that the heart starts beating at 5 weeks. So you might be able to see it. I know miscarriages are hard, I have been worrying about it all this pregnancy because I had a miscarriage prior to this one. Honestly I didnt even get a regular period because I got pregnant within 2 weeks of it, and everything is healthy and great with this one. I think that everything will be just fine, I know its hard not to worry about it happening again but just enjoy being pregnant.

First, congrats! I can't help with your first question, though I think it doesn't matter when you O, just how long your luteal phase is after O. Wouldn't swear to that though.

At 5w2d, you'll be able to see the gestational sac and the yolk sac. *Possibly* a fetal pole. Heart starts beating during week 6, so don't expect to see it at this first u/s.

Praying all goes well for you this time.

congratulations on your pregnancy Melissa

Late ovulation has NO impact whatsoever, on the successful outcome of a pregnancy, so cross that worry off your list

As for having a scan at 5w2d, I wouldn't go into it *expecting* to see a h/b that early, but the sonographer will be able to see the gestational sac, and the yolk sac, which are both indicators that the pregnancy is going as it should be, at that early stage.

Generally the h/b starts toward the end of the fifth, start of the sixth week, so I would imagine if you had a scan around the 7w mark, there would be a h/b then

Hi Melissa!! welcome & congratulations!!

I've heard it doesn't matter when you ovulate in your cycle... it matters how long your LP is though.

At 5 weeks 2 days they may not see much more than a sac, so if thye don't see much try not to worry too much.

Hope this pregnancy goes well for you!!!

Thanks so much for the welcome. You don't know how much your encouraging words mean. So I guess since my LP has consistently been 13 days I'm assuming I might be ok. I don't like that my symptoms come and go, but every morning that I've been waking up feeling like a bus hit me, I thank God for it. I hope I get to stay.

Oh and for the ultrasound, yeah I figured I'll only see a yolk sac, but that's cool. The last u/s I had was accompanied with bleeding and a baby that hadn't grown in 5 weeks, so I'll take a sac.
