Today I had the first scan for this pregnancy. I am 5w3d today, so my doctor fully prepared me before.
She stressed that we will ONLY SEE A SAC and probably NOT A YOLK SAC and DEFINITELY NOT A HEARTBEAT.
So I knew what to expect going in there.
Well, we saw a sac, a yolk sac, and the fetal pole! We couldn’t quite see a heartbeat as my doctor thinks it probably just formed, but it was so relieving.
My doctor said everything is where is should be and looks great! She said that given my hcg levels and the fact that the ultrasound looked great, she is quietly confident that all is going to go well this pregnancy.
Of course, I don’t have the same outlook as her. My thoughts are much more pessimistic, but I’m trying to stay positive. I’m so hopeful that it will work out, I just find it hard to believe it will.
Anyway, she also told me that she got the PGD test results from the embryo in the freezer. Perfect embryo, no chromosomal issues detected.
Wow. And yay!!
