I thought I was 6w2d today, but according to today’s ultrasound, I am just shy of 6 weeks.
The technician wouldn’t let DW be present for the ultrasound, which was annoying, and also wouldn’t let me take pictures. They just kept saying that there really wouldn’t be anything to see this early, which begs the question, “Why the fuck did you people bully me into having an ultrasound this early?!”. Ugh. I’m so annoyed.
Anyway, she did a transabdominal first on a full bladder (boy are those uncomfortable!), and then a transvaginal after I had emptied my bladder. I managed to snap this picture while privately getting undressed:
So basically we have a singleton, and it’s apparently too early to visualize anything except for the gestational sac itself.
I’m not gonna lie, I am a bit worried as everything that I’ve read says that we should’ve been able to visualize the yolk sac at 5 weeks, but there was none. However, all I saw was an empty sac. In their words “it’s too early for the ultrasound technician to take the appropriate measurements”.
They wanted me to repeat it next week, but I don’t want to be disappointed again, so I pushed it to two weeks. Hopefully by then I will be 8 weeks along and something should be there.
Why is this so damn stressful? I’m such an overachiever in every other aspect of my life, so having late implanting blastocysts, low HCGs, and slow to develop embryos is driving me insane.
I really hope our little spark is in there, and that in two weeks we get some good news.
