So I went to the hospital for my 7 week 2 day ultrasound today and all we could see was an empty sac with the remains of the embryo as the Dr said- no heartbeat. The ultrasound was done on the same machine as at 6 weeks when we clearly saw the heartbeat. The Dr said that was pretty much it and to think about d&c. Still to be 100% sure to get an ultrasound on a better machine but it was pretty clear in her mind that it was all over. We had to wait an hour and a half for the next ultrasound, me crying and DH trying to hold it together. Of course there was no where private to wait but in the cafe of the maternity ward. I thought it was all over and felt that was it.
We finally went for the 2nd ultrasound with two lovely female doctors my age and they didn't say anything but we could fee their growing excitement. They found the embryo and everything measures perfectly with a heart beat of 150 per minute. We were in shock. They said everything is perfect! After this experience I think I am not ready to move boards yet and hope I can hang out here a bit longer if that's ok!
So ladies, always get the 2nd ultrasound- they did say the first machine was fairly weak but it was weird that it had shown everything had shown ok at 6 weeks on same machine. Exhausting day but well all ends well.
