I had bloods taken last Wed and a pelvic ultrasound on Friday (before I saw the doctor to hear the results).
The ultrasound showed a little sac, good position and it measured around 5weeks 3days. But as I have PCOS and very irregular periods, we didn't have a last period to go off.
The ultrasound tech said it could be anywhere between 4-5 weeks 3days, although it's measuring at 5 weeks 3 days, without the results from the blood test he couldn't confirm for sure.
He also said that if I had the results from the blood test and they matched the 5 weeks 3 days that he would have done an internal to check for a HB.
Anyway, I left feeling, well like I had no answers.
Got results at doctors same day, all looked good.
HCG 5492 IU/l
According to the paper, 100-5000 time after conception of 2-3 weeks (so about 4-5 weeks)
And 500-10000 time after conception of 3-4 weeks (so about 5-6 weeks along).
So going off HCG, am I on the right train of thought to assume the scan was probably right for around 5 weeks 3 days ish? Or am I more likely 4-5 weeks?
Asked the doctor if I needed to have another scan to confirm but he said it's not necessary and well March is so far away for the 12 week scan. Feel like I can't be happy as I don't know for certain there's a HB.
My ovaries are so heavily cysted they look like clouds so I am really happy it's happened but I know me and I'll spend the next 7 weeks thinking "what if" because we didn't see the HB.
Should I wait until 12 weeks or would it be okay to ask for another scan in a week or two?
At what stage can a HB be seen with a pelvic ultrasound and not an internal?
Another question, I first got symptoms around Dec 15 (extremely tired, very very sore breasts/nipples, bloated, upset stomach, head aches, dizziness, smelling everything, need to go to the toilet all the time, cramps) and they have remained constant since. Until about a week ago when they all stopped except the tiredness and my breasts have grown about 2 sizes but aren't sore anymore.
I asked the doctor about that and he didn't seem phased. Is it normal to lose symptoms? Almost all of them?
With DD I was so so so so sick all the time, I had 24/7 morning sickness until the day I gave birth, so having the opposite with all symptoms is worrying me a little.
Anyway I'll stop there before this post becomes longer then the entire LOTR series. Thank you for reading 😊
