I’m really sorry OP. I’ve been there. Unfortunately those early ultrasounds are usually extremely accurate as far as measuring size, as the cells grow at a very specific rate up until 12 weeks.

OP I am so sorry 🙁 Hugs to you. My first pregnancy ended in a MC but I was able to see that baby and hear a heartbeat at 6w2d. Sounds like this is a possible blighted ovum? I really hope you get answers soon. My best friend measured behind in the beginning so that is totally possible. I’m just concerned for you that the baby only measures 1 day ahead from Friday. This stuff is so hard sometimes 🙁

if a second opinion will put you at ease then go for it. Or ask for one more ultrasound in ten days. By then the growth should be very noticeable and a heartbeat if there will be one. Best of luck to dear. This process is so so so hard.

soontobemrsx :  Yes. It’s super normal to be upset like that. If you start having real trouble functioning or don’t feel like yourself at all, please talk to a doctor. Otherwise, there’s a lot of emotions and hopes that are pinned on a positive test and the early days of pregnancy. It’s very hard because so much can change on a dime. There’s certainly a lot of people on this site talking about early loss and that might be helpful for you? I’m sorry for you loss. It’s a real loss, no matter if something was there or not. You have every right to take your time to process and feel the weight of it.

I’m so sorry. I think what you’re feeling is normal. It is a loss and it doesn’t matter how far along you were. I hope you can heal with time and I’m sending you all the positive thoughts.

soontobemrsx :  I am so sorry for your loss. Yes it is very normal to feel very upset no matter how far along you are. I had a loss when I was about as far along as you and I was devastated. My husband was sad but he didnt take it as hard as me. A loss is a loss no matter how far along you are. Please be gentle with yourself. Miscarrage are fairly common unfortunately but many women who have them go on to have healthy pregnancies.  Again I am so sorry for your loss.  I know when I had mine it was one of the darkest times in my life. It does get better it just takes time. Do you have anyone you can talk to about this. Your husband, a friend, your mom? It may help.

Being upset is definitely normal.  I’m not a ‘life at conception’ person, especially since we did IVF and I saw a bunch of cells and didn’t see a person yet, so my pain wasn’t necessarily the loss of ‘someone’, but it was the pain of a dream snatch away.  The life that could have been for both the embryo and our dreams to have a child seeming like reality and then taken away was what I think I was grieving.  The pain lessens and kinda goes away over time.  I mean, I’ll never forget that I was pregnant twice before my son, and I still remember their due dates, but I don’t dwell on it and have trouble concentrating on anything else like when it had just happened.  It helped me to get something to remember them by – I started a pandora type charm bracelet with angel wings for them.

soontobemrsx :  so sorry bee. It’s definitely normal to feel upset. I had two miscarriages and each time I felt like a baby was ripped from me. Time does help some. Take care of yourself now and treat yourself to something that’ll make you happy.
