6 Week Ultrasound

We had our 6 week ultrasound today after our first IVF cycle. I have been so anxious waiting for this appointment. I thought that we would find out whether this is a viable pregnancy or not, but it turns out we're still in limbo.

Dr. L found one gestational sac. He saw a yolk sac, but no fetal pole. And with no fetal pole, obviously no heartbeat. He explained to us that he expected to see a fetal pole by now, but he couldn't find one at all. He said it doesn't mean that it's not there, it could be on the edge of the sac and too small to see. But he warned us that if we still don't see a fetal pole by next week's ultrasound, then it's most likely not a viable pregnancy.

I asked him what he thought our chances were, and he said that he has seen similar situations that turned into successful pregnancies. But there's also a chance it might not.

Daniel and I left the appointment and barely said a word to each other. We have been through so much to get here, and we are both so worried that this could be taken from us. I'm so scared of our dreams being crushed.

We have another appointment scheduled for next Thursday and the wait is going to be torture! I just want to KNOW....either way, I want to prepare myself.

Anyway, here's the ultrasound picture from today. Hopefully there's a baby hiding in there somewhere.

  2. Praying for your scan to bring good news. UK clinics don't like to scan before 7 weeks as it before that is too early.
