IVF measuring behind and slower heart rate? Help!


Hi ladies. I recently went through IVF (in vitro fertilization) after trying to concieve for over 2 and 1/2 years. I was so happy to finally get a positive test but now I feel like it's all been taken away from me.
My hcg levels were great at week 4, 4 and 1/2 and 5 1/2 and my fertility clinic were very positive. They even took me off progesterone at 5 weeks.
I went and had ultrasound at what my clinic says is approx 7 weeks (due to ER being on the 6th of May and transfer of 5 blastocyst on the 11th May) but only measured 6 weeks 2 days. They said that they could see a faint heart beat too which I thought was positive initially until they said it was only at 80 and looked very concerned. - this was not at my clinic as we have to travel there so have another scan booked on Tuesday but man the wait it killing me I'm so stressed and upset.

If I went off my first day of last period then it wouldn't be a week behind would be 5 days.

I don't know I'm so confused and scared is there anyone else out there that has gone through IVF (in vitro fertilization) and had growth a week behind and low heart beat at first ultrasound. Is there any hope?

Sorry you're stuck in limbo believe me I know how much this sucks! I didn't go through IVF but blasts may take several days to implant, so your little bean could very well be 6w2d and not 7 weeks. ☺ And yes 80bpm is slow, but at 6 weeks, it' s not something that would always signal a non-viable pregnancy. I know it's hard but try not to think too much about it and don't Google it☺

I'm sorry you have to wait. With IVF there is a lot more stress because you know so early what is happening. The dates the clinic use are more appropriate than last menstrual cycle since you may have surged earlier or later depending on when your follicles were ready for retrieval. based on the process you know the exact age. There is such small variation in size at this point. I really hope Tuesdays scan goes well for you. This is such a scary thing to go through.

Just thought I needed to update and thank you both for trying to keep my hopes up. Unfortunately my wee ones heart had stopped beating at the scan so back to praying for a miracle. ��
