Hey girls, First scan, diagnosis is reserved, the doctor wants to do more tests because of my age (41) there are some concerns. I thought I was 7 weeks pregnant but the doctor puts me at around 5 weeks 6 days and she could see a faint heartbeat. She mentioned a couple of things: High risk of miscarriage , she puts me at 50% because of my age, but also the size is smaller than expected. She mentioned we might have gotten the dates wrong, which is not impossible, I don't actually remember when I got my period but I am positive it was between the 18th and the 21st of April. It wasn't after that. Also, we didn't really have that much sex due to being married 16 freaking years, but also, we both had been busy. So, we are both positive we had sex sometime between the 28th-30th of April and then not again until May 8th and that's because we got so drunk (we were celebrating his new job) And those are the only two possibilities, because we didn't have sex again until after we found out I was pregnant. I have tested for ovulation before, the tests have turned positive between days 13 and 15. The ovulation test never became even faintly positive before day 13. Not once in the many months I tested. I commented that to the doctor and she said it is likely then I conceived on May 8th but she is concerned about why I would have had a positive pregnancy test on May 18th. In any case, I am very concerned of course but I knew it was a long shot, so I am just crossing my fingers and hoping for the best. I had a blood test done today and they want me to go back on Monday to have another one to compare them and then another appointment on FridayI'll keep you guys posted but ....any thoughts?
@Emma63 my friend just had a scan at exactly 6 weeks and 5 days. Hers had to be done vaginally, and her ultrasound photo is of a cute little blob. You can’t really see much other than that. But she did get to hear the heartbeat and see the little flicker. But if you’re worried about an internal ultrasound, they don’t hurt at all! The wand is really thin and there’s so much lubricant it just slides right in!
When’s yours Emma? I had one at 6 weeks with my first daughter xx
