So basically I had a very slow rising beta, I went to my RE’s for an ultra-sound last week fully expecting for them to find I was having an ectopic. To my very pleasent surprise the ultra-sound showed 1 bean right where it should be (with a yolk and fetal pole)! The down side (on top of my very slow rising beta) is that the embryo was measuring small (about 5 days, 2 days more than they qualify as normal) and they could not see a heart beat, which I was told was not unusual this early. So now I am going back for another ultra-sound tomorrow and they are looking for 1 weeks worth or growth and a heartbeat. I am petrified! I had some lower back pain this morning, my nurse said that without bleeding she wouldn’t be concerned especially since its not severe. But they moved up my ultra-sound for Wednesday to tomorrow to make me feel better. Wouldn’t I start bleeding by now if the bean didn’t grow at all? My nurse said that week she was cautiously optimistic, which makes me feel more positive but I will be crushed if I go in and there is nothing
I needed to vent, no one knows I am pregnant (besides my husband and he trys but is not very comforting). Thanks for listening.
