good morning! today i am at 7w+4d and this afternoon is my first appointment, i am excited yet nervous! i'm 32yo and this is my first child, haven't told anyone except my sister and of course daddy to be. it's been hard keeping this secret but we wanted to wait until after today's appointment. we are so ready to tell our family and close friends; daddy has been trying hard to keep it in and is ready to burst lol, especially to his 'boys' (cousins and brother). never been pg, had to take 4 hpt, 2 different brands for me to accept and absorb the blessing. smiley face is me! only symptoms are nausea (little & seldom), major fatigue (fell asleep during conference call!), sore tender breasts, and of course the bathroom has become my second office. am super excited yet nervous for this afternoon... smiles & hugs!
***update*** dr only saw yolk sac, said it may be too early. online calendars say i should've been 7wks. dr says i may have ovulated later than expected. scheduled for another appt next wk. anyone been through this?
I went through the same thing my first appointment . The US tec. told me they could only see gest. sac not even yolk sac at 5 or 6 wks. Told me I was to early. I had a follow up US 2 weeks later and told me I was 8 wks. instead of 9 weeks and a couple days.
hey there kfadak, thanks for the reply. i'm trying to stay positive and calm but when i think about the dr's words "possibility of development stopping" and the chances of "mc", it freaks me out. seems to me this is going to be the longest wk wait. hope and faith, is what i'm clinging to plus it really helps being here.
Hi Wishes78, I am 32 too and am pregnant the first time too..7w4d today! I had a similar experience at my first appointment which was about a week ago when the doctor said that she would like to do another US next week. I had my second appoitment this tuesday and she was happy with what she saw! So dont worry all will be good.
Please update when you can! It's not uncommon to find out that you're not as far along as you thought you should be, especially if you're not tracking ovulation. Hopefully you'll get another ultrasound soon and get some good news! (((hugs)))
I'm sorry, I know how stressful it can be to not see what you expected to see on the ultrasound screen.
