Yesterday was my 6w5d ultrasound. We were REALLY hoping to detect the heartbeat at this appointment, but it just didn’t happen. The sac measured at 6w2d instead of my 6w5d based on my IUI, but the doctor said that was totally normal. He also said it was totally normal (due to the timing and my tilted uterus) that we didn’t get the heartbeat this time. Good news is that the sac had grown….has a yolk sac…and is measuring pretty close to what we assumed it would. The doctor told me not to be worried at all, but I can’t help it. I have the fear. I’m sure most infertiles probably have it once they get that BFP….that fear that everything will be taken away at any minute, that it’s too good to be true. I’m trying really hard not to over think or over-analyze too much, but it’s hard…. it’s naturally what I do. Doctor was going to see me next week, but I’ll be traveling all week. Sooooooo…..next appt will be on June 11th. At that point I’ll be over 8 weeks, so if we don’t see the heartbeat there is a problem. Fingers crossed for progress!
As for the little Hott Bebe, it’s about the size of a sweet pea at this point. It’s about .25 of an inch..and that should double by next week.
