Feeling very disheartened :-(


So according to my lmp I am 7 weeks exactly today, although this doesn't mean a lot as I have pcos so usually have irregular periods, also I didn't get a bfp until 1 week after missing a period if I go by a 28 day cycle. after having a MC last time I booked in for a private early scan to see how things are progressing,
The sonographer found a gestational sac and yolk sac but no fetal pole. I am just feeling really down now she said it could be too early and I'm booked in for 10 days time for a re scan. Not what I was hoping for today. Has this happened to anybody else to go on to a normal pregnancy? With my second pregnancy at 6 weeks 1 day a fetal pole and heartbeat were found so I'm just fearing going the worst

If you don't know when you ovulated then it's perfectly reasonable to think you are much earlier than you thought , especially as you didn't get a positive until later. I think the fact they saw anything at this point is good! Please don't stress! This is why it's advised against early scans especially if you aren't sure of your dates!!!

I really hope so. I'm trying getting so hard to stay positive but my head won't let me. This is going to be a long 10 days!

I've had different experiences with all my kids. At 5+4 I saw Thomas with a heartbeat. At 7+0 with Sophie all we saw was a sac. At 6+3 Emma was there but no heartbeat. All kids are alive an kicking.

I went in for my first ultrasound at 9w3d with this pregnancy, and my little embryo only measured 7w5d. 12 days SMALL! I couldn't believe it! That's NEVER happened to me before, and this is my FIFTH baby! I went in a week later, and the baby was measuring 10 days small. I went in a week after that, and the baby was measuring 7 days small. I went in 2 weeks later, and the baby had caught up to dates. I'm now 25 weeks along. If I'd gone in at 6w, I probably wouldn't have seen anything at all! I have PCOS, and my cyles were very irregular when I got pregnant this time - the cycles were anywhere between 28 and 45 days.

Good luck! I'm praying that the next ten days go fast and everything is okay with your baby.

With this baby I went in at 6 weeks and they only saw the gestational sac. No yolk sac or fetal pole. She's doing very well right now!! It's most likely that you're just early.

(WILLO0568) let's stay positive. I too have pcos & had experienced & been in ur same shoes. It's better if doctor's don't go poking too much too early. For me pushing it I had a bad outcome. So the second time around I did my best to stay busy until it was time to get checked again & had a beautiful 9.5lbs 22in. Baby boy who's now 5yrs old. Because of the pcos I couldn't believe I was pregnant 2 months ago & again got desperate & its now exactly that 2 months ago I had a D&C. I am sharing my heartfelt story it's held you please be patient with yourself enjoy that you are pregnant and you will be okay. 🙇🙇
