    I am so nervous! I guess after a missed miscarriage it's hard not to be freaked out about every ultrasound. I'm super early, I'll be a day shy of 6 weeks tomorrow, but it's a follow up to an ER scan I had a week ago. Scan showed gestational sac in the right place, but no yolk sac or fetal pole yet. I'm just paranoid the sac is still going to be empty! Anyone else going through something similar this week?

    Sweetie, fx'd for your appointment today.

    Arielle, I'm so sorry for your loss. I was 9 weeks, baby died at 6.5 weeks, only days after I saw the heartbeat at 6 weeks.

    I'm having a scan after a mc in Dec 2010. I'll be 6 + 3 tomorrow. It's at 10.45 and I'm SO scared that there's going to be no heart beat... I just can't relax... :cry:

    Just got back. It was a very emotional ultrasound because I have been having consistent bright red light bleeding since last night. I was sure there would be nothing there. However, there was a little embryo with a heartbeat. We got to hear it, 115bpm... it was beautiful, and of course I was crying. I'm still very nervous though because I saw the heartbeat last time after bleeding just like this, but then 3 weeks later found at the next ultrasound a missed miscarriage... so it was a bittersweet scan today.

    Oh hun im sorry it was so emotional for you, but so lovely u saw hb. Just try and relax and enjoy ur pregnancy. What happened before must have been horrendous to go through but has no bearing on this one, though of course u will remember what u lost then. Btw,u meant one hundred and fifty something bpm didnt u? Cos u wrote 15!!

    Anyhow congrats. Are u feeling better now?? xx

    Oops, thanks pcake! Definitely meant 115 hahah. It was definitely a horrendous experience last time, thinking everything was ok because "spotting is normal" and we saw the HB and everything.. even the doc said last time that I probably wouldn't miscarry after we saw the HB. It's very hard to separate the 2 pregnancies because so far they've been very similar, with the spotting and everything, and now hearing the heartbeat.
    Anyway thanks everyone. I wish everyone good luck who has yet to go to their first ultrasound appointments! FX'd for all of you!!

    Sounds like you had a great scan! Thanks for sharing. It gives me hope! I also had a missed m/c last year. I had my first scan last Friday. I thought I was 6 weeks on the dot as I had an IUI so I was using the day after as my "conception" date. They said 5 weeks 5 days for some reason? They only saw an empty sac. My HCG level was 1400 and they said that was normal, just said that it is probably a little early to see anything on the scan. I have another scan this Wednesday and I am freaking out! Feeling so emotional! You know that feeling you had with the missed m/c, I just will never forget that feeling, hearing those words. It is just something I wish none of us would ever have to go through! But anyway, thanks for posting about your visit as it gives me much needed hope!
