Response to Very disturbing REvisit today, your thoughts, please
First of all, I'm sorry that your RE was such a jerk! Some doctors really have no common sense and have no idea that their reactions can be so jarring.
It is still so early, and not to mention, your O date could be off by a two, which really impacts what can be seen at this time. The fact that he saw a gestational sac is a good thing and at this early stage I don't think they can expect to see much more. Even going in one week, for him to say he'd expect to see a fetal pole and heart beat, that isn't necessarily so, because dates could be off and not everyone sees that at 6 weeks exactly.
Since you have an OB appointment lined up for the end of next week, I wouldn't even go back to your RE next Monday, but wait until your OB appointment on Friday. Those extra few days may feel like an eternity, but things should be more certain at that point. A few days can make ALL of the difference in these early u/s.
Your numbers look good and are doubling as they should. Keep doing what your doing and try as best you can to not let that RE get inside of your head with the negative thoughts. I'm not trying to give you false hope, but at the same time, you have no reason not to have hope at this point.
Sending you hugs.
