nycoleman :  no it doesn’t matter much that it’s zoomed in. The uterine tissue and gestational sac are very clear and well defined so the measurements would be accurate. I don’t deal with at home pregnancy tests so for that I’m just not much help, I apologize. Your serial hcg is going to be your best indicator as to if a pregnancy is progressing. Did they do one the day of your ultrasound? I would get your blood drawn next week and see how your hormones are doing before getting another ultrasound. I know the last thing anyone wants to hear is that these things take time to figure out but that’s really the best answer.

nycoleman :  are they testing your HCG levels? If not, I would call on Monday and request it. You get a blood draw and then another one 48 hours later. They should be rising substantially if the pregnancy is going well. 

I’m sorry to say this same thing happened to me – I should have been 8-9 weeks and the zygote measured at 5.5 weeks. It was a missed miscarriage, and it was confirmed by my HCG blood draws.

I sure hope that’s not happening to you. I would definitely request the tests so that you don’t have to live in limbo.

Hey OP, sorry your going through this! Are your cycles regular? I have a long cycle of 35-36 days so when I first went in for my HCG test and even the ultrasound a few weeks later the doctors were telling me that I was only 1 week along (HCG test) when I thought I was 3-4 weeks pregnant and then my ultrasound said 6 weeks when I thought I was already 9 weeks along. I picked up my pregnancy super early coz I track my symptoms normally with pregnancy but I’m now 20+2 and tracking along. Fingers crossed you have a sticky bean in there and a healthy pregnancy!

nycoleman :  I wish you well, just chiming in to comment on your birth control pill comment. When you are on the pill you aren’t actually ovulating, everyone has the “perfect 28 day cycle” because it’s a withdrawal bleed. It’s perfectly reasonable that your dates are off and once the bcp was stopped you had a true cycle and managed to get pregnant without having a proper menstration first. Good luck.

nycoleman :  I’ll be honest, I’m concerned about your timeline too.  Unfortunately I’ve had friends with very strong betas have early miscarriages. Fingers crossed your baby will show good progression either with blood tests or serial ultrasound.

The pics you posted are strong positives but not crazy strong. That’s about what mine looked like at 11 dpo.

nycoleman :  No advice, just wanted to say that I can’t imagine how scary this must be for you and that I hope everything works out for you and the baby!
