Hi Bees, about 3 weeks ago I found out I was pregnant on my first cycle, without trying. It came as a shock but with each passing day, my hubby and I were building up the excitement of having a child.
We waited till we’re around 7 weeks for our first appointment and went in with the anticipation of finding a heartbeat. According to my last period, I’m around 7 weeks but when my Gynae did the ultrasound, I measured 6 weeks. We could all see the embryo clearly but she said she couldn’t see/hear a clear heartbeat. We had both ultrasound and transvaginal ultrasound. She gave me a 50/50 chance of having a viable pregnancy and referred me to a hospital for a more detailed check up on Monday.
I was on the pill, once, to delay my period as I was on my honeymoon trip. We noted that since I got pregnant right after the pill, I could have ovulated later than expected. Then again, it could be the worst case scenario. I’m trying so hard to stay positive but it’s easier said than done. I cried once I reached home.. 2 more days to finding out the truth and I’m so worried.

I’m so sorry you are going through this bee. For what it’s worth my first cycle off the pill I ovulated 7 days later than what my “normal” is. I’m really hoping the same thing happened to you ♥️ and that you get good news in 2 days

Try not to worry just yet…it’s still early days
Where I’m from they don’t even scan you that early on..unless there are issues…
1st routine scan here is usually around 12 weeks

You easily could be a week late ovulating, that happens all the time, and right at 6 weeks it’s not guaranteed that they will find a heartbeat, even one day can make a difference this early on. It is entirely possible that on Monday they will find a heartbeat and a healthy baby 🙂

Nothing to add except that I can’t imagine how you must be feeling right now; try to hang in there until Monday! Remember that nothing you can do between now and then will change what they find so try to be kind to yourself and relax if you can. Hugs <3

I also ovulated late after coming off of BC, even though I’m on Metformin and it had regulated my cycle for years before getting on BC, when I got off, my cycles suddenly lengthened again.

I can’t say for certain that things will be fine, but for my first, I thought I was 8 weeks along and measured 6 with a flutter to be seen. He’s almost 3 years old now. It could be you’re just off on your dates. wishing you well!

What an emotional rollercoaster. I wish you strength and lots of well wishes for Monday.
I ovulated seven days late on my second cycle off the pill. The resulting baby is now our seven-year-old!

Even for people off the pill for awhile, you can ovulate all over the place. I ovulated a week early a month we were trying NOT to get pregnant (I typically ovulated really regularly on CD 17), and ended up pregnant with twins.
Try not to get too down — just wait it out (I know that’s easier said than done!)

Thank you ladies for your encouraging words and positive vibes! Deeply appreciated at a time like this. Last night was tough to get through but I’m feeling more positive today, even if just a little 😊

Very similar thing happened to me last year. I had some bleeding when I was 6w on the day (we were TTC, so I knew exactly when I had ovulated). Went to the ER, they did a transvaginal ultrasound. The tech actually showed me the heartbeat (which techs never do!), so I was relieved. Went back to get my stuff in the exam room and the doc said they couldn’t find a heart beat (what?!). They referred me to my city’s Early Pregnancy Assessment Clinic but of course this was the Friday before a long weekend, so I had to wait till the Tuesday (to make matters worse, I had to go away with my husband’s extended family…to celebrate Mother’s Day…and my SIL was 20 weeks pregnant). Tuesday morning they confirmed a heartbeat and that tiny sesame seed is now noisily sucking on her soother next to me.
What I’m trying to say is that even though I knew exactly when I conceived, they still thought I was measuring behind based on ultrasound. And, as pp said, a day difference at that point in development literally can be the difference between a visible heartbeat or not (you won’t be able to hear one until farther along, but a little flicker will appear). I’ll keep my fingers crossed for you!

Thinking of you bee. I had a missed miscarriage but it took a few days to determine and it was agony. Im hoping for a positive outcome for you!
