I have been debating whether to post, because I am trying to keep my mind off of my last u/s result.

I don't have any words of experience for you but I will offer lots of prayers that this little bean is going to grow, grow, grow! Good luck- I really hope everything turns out ok.

I'm sorry, Erin. I haven't had an experience like that, so I can't offer any words of advice. But I'm praying for you. Please keep us posted.

the waiting sucks, I know. When I had my miscarriage they couldn't find anything on ultrasound so they ruled it ectopic. I never got to see my little bean anywhere which has its own set of worry and sadness. I hope it all turns out well for you. I do think there is some hope for you. I pray your ultrasound goes well and you see the heartbeat.

*hugs* I don't have any personal experience with this, but it sounds sort of like what a friend went through. The doctors couldn't find anything for several weeks. At first they said it was ectopic, then that there was no heart beat, etc. The doctor even gave my friend a prescription to start a miscarriage. She just couldn't go through with it because her heart told her differently. She waited, went to different doctors and finally they found the baby, alive and well. (maybe a bit small?) Anyway, happy story, short: her daughter is now just of a year old!

Listen to your heart/gut/mind first and then the doctors. You have time to wait if that is why your heart/gut/mind is saying.

I'm in a similar "holding pattern". My betas were all low and slow-doubling (sometimes two, sometimes three days) so no one was expecting much when I went for my u/s thursday (5wk6days). It was the tiniest of tiny sacs (6.7 mm) and I got so caught up in her reservations about it ever culminating in a healthy pg that I'm unclear if she said "there's the yolk sac" (dh thinks he heard it). I did see this "tail" fluttering off to the side and now I'm wondering if that was the fetal pole developing-ie maybe there *was* a tiny sac in there and it's just slow to grow..?

I don't know, they definitely are not hopeful at the RE's office (at least this doc wasn't-my reg RE will be there for my next u/s on Friday-at 7wks0days)

My problem is that I know when I ovulated (trigger shot) and unless implantation was a day or two behind, I don't know why a healthy pg should be so small? I have gone over and over the internet (as I'm sure you have) and I have read enough 'miracle' stories to now think that maybe I can have one, too.

I do think that if you ovulated late or implanted late, even a few days can make a difference. And I don't see how waiting a little longer-just to be sure-can't hurt anything. I had a few days of doom and gloom but I've now chosen to be positive and hopeful until I'm proved otherwise. After all, I have the knowledge and facts that it is a tough road ahead so that if it does end up failing, I will not be crushed (ie I think I'm being realistic about my odds, but adding hope to that is okay, too!)

Do keep us posted, though. And take good care of yourself!
