Re: No idea how far along I am (transported from TTC forum)

OK, I really hate to be a downer, because we all want good news- and I really hope maybe your dates are just off and everything if fine.

Have they taken any more HCG levels? If your timeline is roughly correct, you would be about 7.5-8 wks at your us, right? the fetal pole is usually able to be seen by between 5-6 wks.
Can you ask them the size of the sac? A sac greater than 16mm without the presence of a fetal pole is typically considered a blighted ovum- when the sac developes and continues to grow, but a baby never forms.

Sorry you are having to go through so much uncertainty- Hugs and prayers that everything turns out fine!

Based on dates you may think you're supposed to be 7.5-8 weeks but that doesn't mean it's always the case. I was "supposed" to be due June 10 but had my ultrasound and dating showed I am due June 22. So I actually got a positive test at 10dpo instead of the 22 dpo I thought I was. So I wouldn't worry yet!! If I would have gone in at 7.5 weeks (based on my "original" due date) there would have been no fetal pole because I was actually only 5.5 weeks pregnant!

I guess I'm just hoping that some of you with more experience can look at the info below and maybe give me some hope that everything is okay. I really want this baby.

First day of my last AF was 10/20/10. My cycles are anywhere from 40-50 days.

10/20 AF
10/26 BD
11/02 BD
11/26 BD
12/05 BD
12/06 BD (BFN on this day too)
12/12 BD
12/14 BFN
12/18 very light positive on 2 Wondfo tests
12/19 BFP on CBE digital
12/23 203 HCG
12/28 1057 HCG
01/03 4930 HCG *UPDATED*


So, can anyone guess how far along I am? I've read that at conception you are considered two weeks pregnant (which I totally don't get, but ok). I guess I just don't understand how all of this is measured.

Any help on this would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks mamas.

***UPDATE*** I went for an ultrasound yesterday (1/13) and they saw a gestational sac and a yolk sac, but no fetal pole. I'm trying to stay positive and tell myself that maybe it's still really early, and the fetal pole will be there in a couple of weeks when they do an ultrasound, but I'm looking at the dates above and wondering if I'm just setting myself up for disappointment. I have an appointment with my OB/GYN on Wednesday the 19th to review my time line of events and hopefully the doctor will agree to another ultrasound. The technician yesterday seemed surprised that there was no fetal pole. She search around for quite a while.
This happened to me.. But I knew, when I left there, sometyhing wasn't right. I knew. And I was right. I would ask for HCG draws ASAP. THats how I found out I had a loss, after WEEKS of agonizing over the ultrasound. GL mama.

I'm going in Wednesday to review my timeline with the OB/GYN. Most likely they will send me for another blood draw, and if my numbers have still gone up, then they will schedule an ultrasound. I know they measured the sac, but I didn't know to ask until after the appointment. We'll see what happens

Re: No idea how far along I am (transported from TTC forum)



I'm hoping for good news on Wednesday.

Back in July, I was on birth control and had some odd bleeding and weird symptoms. Went in to the E.R. and they thought I was having a miscarriage. They saw a sac and there were low HCG levels and they couldn't find a fetal pole, either. They advised me to schedule an appointment with my doctor for a follow up and turns out, I was just very, very early. According to my menstrual cycle, I should've been due March 18th but I am not due until April 1st, according to two different early ultrasounds.

I'm crossing my fingers that you are just in a similar situation. Good luck.
