I'm pretty sure I measured 11mm sac with tiny yolk visible and no foetal pole at 6 weeks. I have a tilted uterus which made it more difficult to see. Rescanned 8 days later and tiny foetal pole was visible with heart beat. I was originally told I could be up to a week behind on my dates than what I thought. Then the rescan it was more like half a week behind. But then when it came to 12 week scan I was put two days ahead than what I originally thought anyway.

When I was going google mad I found SO many women who said they also had no foetal pole on their 6 week scan, the majority seemed to have a good result on the rescan. They're incredibly small, very difficult to see at 6 weeks. We almost didn't even see the yolk sac on my scan until the last second when she was about to give up looking!

Try not to panic hope all goes well for you xxx

June 3 - Predicted Ovulation Date and also day of Baby Dance

June 21 - First HCG draw = 94
June 25 - Second HCG draw = 320
June 27 - Visit to ER for brown spotting with occasional red since 6/20 - Another HCG draw = 402 but u/s showed gest. sac with no yolk/fetal pole [too early]
July 2 - Sudden gush of bright red blood and passing clots - Not sure if I'm going to back to the ER or just wait until July 16 for my normal scheduled appointment/ultrasound to confirm the worst or surprise me with a miracle.

It's been a hard day at work for sure...
July 3 - Bleeding continued; returned to ER after leaving work early. HCG draw dropped by 50%, ultrasound showed no gestational sac. Confirmed miscarriage.

I wish you all the best and hope your little beans grow quickly and healthy.

Hi ladies,
My update is that there is no update
I found a place in Nashville that does free ultrasounds, but they said they would only do them after 12 weeks as they don't have the ability to see anything earlier than that.

Due to our inability to afford to pay without insurance we just are going to have to wait until August 1

I asked my husband to harrass his insurer to make sure we do actually have our card etc by August 1 as my OB booked me in for August 2nd.

If there's no baby I still can't afford a D and C without insurance.. so what's the point in finding out before we have insurance really.

I have not had any bleeding.
My boobs feel like they're going to explode and my husband gave me a Victoria Secrets voucher for my birthday so I asked them if they have any bras that prevent boobs moving..
They sold me a 36DD bra with a double layer and it still won't stop them moving..

I'm extremely fatigued. I'm sleeping 8 hours a day and then sleeping another 4 hours in the middle of the day

I am normally a 5-6 hour sleeper and a 16 hour a day worker

I'm self employed as a photographer and videographer, thankfully I don't have any weddings in July so I'm able to get away with all this sleep.
I don't know how women hold down actual day jobs with employers 8 hours a day with babies.

I'm really sorry you had bad news
I'm trying to just not think about it. I will keep everyone posted

No bleeding, no vaginal discharge
do not want any form of sexual contact.. and if my husband so much as sneezes near my boobs it hurts so much I wanna give him a black eye.. lol.. #boobpain
