6 week US

So today was the second ultrasound and they corrected their mistake on calculating the gestational age wrong, so now I am 6 weeks which is what I thought I was.  My HCG level has risen nicely to 9,328, my progesterone was 33,  and estrogen was 203.

To the actual US, my mom and sister got to join me which was nice :). The good news is it is definitely one little bean in there! It's bittersweet but a relief from the worries that would have came with twins (for me at least). So the doctor said he could identify the amniotic sac, yolk sac, and fetal pole but no heartbeat yet. I immediately got upset. I thought this meant it wasn't a viable pregnancy but he assured me that it's 50/50 to hear the heartbeat at 6 weeks and that if I came back tomorrow we probably could have heard it since there was a fetal pole (that pissed me off because they don't do pregnancy scans on weekends). But oh well I am sure everything is fine, I will go back on Tuesday for another US and hopefully see the little blueberry's heartbeat!

  1. Woot, woot! I'm so happy for you two and you need not worry about the heartbeat. We didn't hear Gracie's heartbeat until the end of week 7 and that seems to be the norm for most babies.

    I can't wait for your next update. :)
