So nervous for tomorrow :/

As I posted about in other threads... I am really nervous.

I went in last Wedneday for my viability ultrasound. We did a FET (Frozen embryo transfer) so I know I was supposed to be 6w3d. The baby measured at 6w0d and they couldnt yet find a heartbeat.

I have been a nervous wreck since. I go back tomorrow to hopefully see my baby's heartbeat and some growth, but Im terrified I wont see it.

Over the weekend I was exhausted and needed 2 naps a day pretty much. With DS, I only felt a little green here and there and its the same way with this one... I dont really get M/S. My boobs are still sore and I have that warm super mild cramps that just feels like growth... and I have heartburn.

So Im hoping all of that is a good sign and everything will be ok tomorrow.

When they did my labs last week, my beta was at 9708 and progesterone was fine, so the Dr wasnt concerned at all.

Is it normal for an IVF baby to still measure a little behind and if so, still to early to see the flicker of the heart beat??? Tomorrow cant come soon enough but at the same time Im so scared I will get bad news

I have read that anything before 7 weeks can be iffy on an u/s. I am currently in the waiting room at dr. And on pins and needles myself.
I'll be thinking of you and pray you see a healthy bean! Try to think happy thoughts!

I'm on pins and needles with just a "regular" pregnancy. I also tend to overanalyze and would be worrying the same way you are! Best thing I can do is keep myself busy and try not to think about it too much.

Hoping both of you have wonderful ultrasound results. I completely understand the terror. I had an ectopic pregnancy 8 years ago and am always terrified my first ultrasound will show the embryo in the tube and not my uterus. Fingers crossed for you guys!

I am so so sorry. Are you ok with waiting for things to play out naturally?

Sorry for your loss and that it can take so long...I 2nd pp comments are you ok with things playing out naturally? Would it help you if they gave you something to help your body pass everything more quickly? Prayers for a quick recovery (as quick as can be) and a healthy pregnancy in your very near future...
