I cant believe it! had my first appt today, blood drawn to check my progesterone levels.More than likely I'll be getting weekly shots to supplement my progesterone..woo...lol! On the positive side, I'm having an ultrasound done tomorrow. So nervous about it, but keep telling myself I'll only see a sac and maybe a fetal pole. I'll be 6 weeks tomorrow...I'll be so happy to be out of the first trimester....I hate all this nervous energy!

Thanks! U/S shows more like a 5 week u/s the tech said, which I was kinda thinking I O'd a week later than normal, my signs seem to say so! I have to go back next tuesday for another u/s to check for growth...I hate hearing those words, especially with a loss in my past, but trying to remain confident its more than likely a date problem. After all, Im not spotting, and it took a while to get that BFP!!

This was my experience too. My first u/s they only saw gestational sac and a yolk sac and even though I knew I was probably closer to 5 weeks than 6, I got upset anyway. Went back a week later and everything was fine, little embryo measuring 6 weeks 1 day and they saw a heartbeat! So don't worry too much. Just keep doing what you are doing and try to relax!
