I'm back from my scan today and it has been an absolute rollercoaster of events and emotions ...
Scanned first in the FS office and her machines aren't the strongest and I always knew this - if she needs more info she sends you down to the ultrasound clinic downstairs where they have all the high powered machinery.
I am 7 weeks and 4 days today so there should have been a lot more to see than last week, but unfortunately there wasn't, no heartbeat and very little to no growth from last weeks scan so she advised us that we had likely miscarried. We discussed my options with natural miscarriage or D&C and I opted for a D&C and thankfully she could fit me in tomorrow so I wouldn't be waiting all week. She told me to go get another ultrasound downstairs to be sure there was no hope at all and sent me on my way.
We get to the second ultrasound and the tech finds a heartbeat... the baby is measuring 5 weeks and 5 days not 7 weeks and 4 days and heart rate of 74.
I'm really not sure what to feel - I'm so happy there was a heart beat but the measuring behind two weeks thing is not looking great in my opinion. The FS is going to give me a call later today to follow up on the new turn of events, but for now, I'm still pregnant. Back for another scan on Monday next week so another week of waiting.
Have any of you had a similar experience where it has gone on to be ok am I kidding myself that this could possibly turn around from this point?
I was somewhat hopeful over the weekend because my symptoms seem to return.
