I know, I'm blessed to live in suburbia! I have almost every store I might need within a 5 mile radius. Plus several malls to choose from, shopping in S. Fl is never a problem! I haven't made it to target yet.. oops I took a nap!
I'll head over there shortly.

Ooh naps are the best. I'm feeling a little better from my cold today so I went out for a little while and then took the best nap when I got home

Hi ladies! Em, thanks for the invite, this thread is a great idea. Sorry to hear you have a cold -- I have one as well. Yuk. I thought it was strep at first, but now it feels like run of the mill sore throat, which is certainly better.

Lauren, good luck today! Can't wait to hear about your anatomy scan!

xx

Hey Everyone!
So I had the first sono today.. she said I am 5w1day, although I'm not sure how she came to that calculation...she said they consider all blasts, whether 5 or 6 days as 5 day transfer... anyway, she said the gestational sac looks exactly as it should.. waiting on the beta blood number from today since I never got a second one since last week... hoping for a high number! I didn't see a yolk sac or fetal pole or anything, but she said with their sono's she wouldn't see it at 5 weeks one day yet...but next week she's hoping to see a heartbeat... should she have seen a fetal pole now? I'm paranoid of course because of the miscarriage, even though she told me everything looks great.

Nope.. at 5 weeks it is normal to just see the gestational sac. They can tell how far along you are by the size of the gestational sac. The fetal pole should be noticeable in a few more days. According to this site, the fetal pole shouldn't be visible until 6 weeks: http://www.ttuhsc.edu/elpaso/som/obg...nnin.htm#Fetal Heart Beat

By 6w 5d it would be 5mm long. Apparently each day past 6 weeks the fetal pole grows 1mm. Next week the fetal pole should be measurable and the HB should be as well (after 6w4d)!

My FS refuses to do an ultrasound until 6.5 weeks, so I will see mine on Wednesday! Hopefully everything will be as it should be. I haven't had a beta or anything since 5/30 I'm going a little crazy here It was like a 2 week wait all over again!

I know.. I have been going a little stir crazy, but the daily MS reminder has helped keep me sane. Knowing I have MS means that my bean is probably just fine. I hope! It is 43 hours.. but who's counting

Hi everyone! Thanks for the invite Em

Baby - My FS told me that once your beta hits over 1000 is when they can see more; usually the fetal pole and yolk sac! I understand your nervous; I have been there! But I remember I was in my 6th week before seeing them. And end of week 6 we saw the hb.
