Ultrasound and measurements

Hi ladies,

I am currently 7 weeks and about 2-4 days. I had my ultrasound yesterday - we found a hearbeat (120 beats/min) - beta and p4 were fine - but my gestational sac and embryo measured at 6 weeks and 2 days. About a week behind.

Has anyone experienced this - and went on to have a healthy pg? My RE says that it could go either way... that if it didn't work out - he wouldn't be surprised - or if the embryo started growing and caught up - that wouldn't be surprising either. The fact that he found a good hb is encouraging - and to come back in another week to see how things progress.

Any thoughts?

TIA
Yvonne

I know they moved my due date back 5 days b/c my early u/s's were measuring behind....which I thought was strange b/c I did HCG trigger to O, so I would have thought there would be no question about my due date...?? But as long as there is good growth between the 2 weeks, I wouldn't worry about it. Stinks to wait another week before you know anything for sure, but finding a h/b is very encouraging! And 120 at 6w2d is right on!

Good Luck!

If it was natural then things could be off easily...also, with a h/b like that I would be encourged.  Hang in there?

Thanks for your response.

He didn't mention anything yesterday about moving my due date back... Maybe when I go in next week for another u/s he will make a decision about due date. I felt the same as you... pretty sure of my ovulation date bc I knew via bloodwork when I had my lh surge, and again via bloodwork confirmed ovulation. I know we can be off by a day or so - but no more. This was a natural cycle - but I was monitored at my clinic anyways.

Thanks again .

It was a natural cycle - but I was monitored at the clinic via blood and ultrasound. They told me when my LH surge was happening - and a week later confirmed ovulation via b/w and u.s. Thank you for the encouragement. I am beginning to realize that this is a fairly common thing to happen.

Tks again.

Thank you for your response. It is encouraging to hear that you have gone thru this - and everything is ok. Congrats on your pregnancy.

Just realized that Blythe was your last name and not your first. Can I chalk it up to mommy brain on my part?

Blythe is also a moderator we are two people

We use the same log in to control/change the BB so maybe that caused the confusion?

No biggie either way

Congrats on your pg and I wanted to come on to tell you that it looked good to me but others beat me to it Early days, those early u/s can cause real worries for us who naturally worry over our pgs Wait until you are stuck in that pre-kicks limbo, what torture!

big hugs
Julie

DS was conceived naturally the cycle following a cancelled DE IVF, using my good friend's eggs. She was on the verge of hyperstimming.
DD's nat conception I attribute to using OPKs like a crazy nut, eating grapefruit daily and using preseed. also 5 cycles of TCM ending 2 cycles before that lucky cycle.

I actually looked at the email addy on the top of the page - and thought it was a last name/first name. Thanks for clearing it up for me.

Thanks also for the reassurance. I really am beginning to feel better... albeit cautiously so!
I can hardly wait for the pre-kick stage... something tells me that I am going to need lots of hand-holding.

Take care.
