Hi all, I was hoping someone would be able to help me out...
I have found myself unexpectedly pregnant (but by no means unwanted!).My DD is 10 months old, I stopped breastfeeding a couple of months ago and have had one full cycle in mid March. I did a HPT on thurs 12/4 which was negative, but got a BFP on Sunday 15th. I had a blood test on Friday 20th, which showed HCG levels indicating 4-5 weeks pregnant (which fits with my dates).
However, after some stomach cramps and light spotting on Anzac day, I went in to have my dating scan a week earlier than I planned to. So I had my scan on Thursday, and the girl could see that I had recently ovulated from my left ovary and there was a dark spot within my uterus which could be a pregnancy sac, but she told me it was only measuring at 3-4 weeks, so my dates must be wrong. She told me there was no point in doing an internal scan because it was still so little that there would be nothing to see yet.
I left a bit shattered because I know my dates are firm (even though it was not a fully planned pregnancy), but now I feel as though the girl who did the scan really should have done the internal, in my previous pregnancy they couldn't see anything on the transabdominal scan, but got her heartbeat on the internal. I am kicking myself that I didn't push her to do the internal and the report said "nothing can be given from this scan" and recommended another in 2-3 weeks, which just leaves me in limbo (add the fact that she had to bill me for a pelvic ultrasound because they didn't see a heartbeat and it cost me an extra $20 and you have a rather unhappy lady!).
Can anyone tell me if they have had similar experiences of their "sac" measuring smaller than it should and how the pregnancy turned out?
Thank you so much!
