So I had my early scan today... as some of you know I have been spotting for the past week non stop and I have a history of a previous silent miscariage that included a lot of spotting. Anyway, I went to the EPU in Ealing Hospital and had a scan. My LMP was on the 1st of March so my gestational age is 7 weeks. I also know that my ovulation was on the 24th of March ( quite late) so I knew that the 7 week gestational mark would be way off. The found a sac and a small yolk in it and the sac measured 12mm which apparently is around 4 or 4.5 weeks which according to my ovulation is about right. They didnt detect a fetal pole at this stage. I also had hCgs done again and the results were 11,605 ( my previous one was 5 days ago and it was 2,256) which means that they definately doubled every 24hrs. That leaves me somehow in limbo, as I am scared that this may be a blighted ovum however the doctor said that if I am only 4 weeks a fetal pole cannot be detected. On the other hand I have read that if your Hcgs are over 10,000 a fetal pole should be visible. Any ideas/ advise? PS. Massive thank you to all the ladies that supported me by sending me messages yesterday from this community about good luck and all the positive vibes. This community does support me massively and I dont know how I would cope without this support.
