D I have seen you answer a couple of questions, one about your two ultrasounds at 5wk4days, and 7wks 3days, are you out there to answer a question for me?

D- If you do see this, my question is really about what you saw at each of those u/s and if you knew the sac size and hcg levels at the time you had the sono performed. I would really appreciate it.

I see her postings, I am sure she will write back.

 

Lucy - March 28

I just saw you post, are you there D?

 

D - March 28

Ugh! I don't know if I can remember all those numbers! At 5w4d, we saw a little fuzzy spot.... I don't recall the sac size, but I think the spot measured 1.8 mm. At 7w3d, I'll have to check tonight, but I think the baby was around 2cm. I have a printout from my 9w6d u/s, and I can look that up at home tonight for you also...

Oh lord I was right. My baby is gonna be huge. My 7.4 week ultrasound the baby measured 7cm.

D Thank you so much. I had a tiny sac, but couldn't see much inside, that is what I am worried about. I was at 5.5m sac size at 5wk6days, 2900 HCG. I have my next u/s at 7wk1day. I have one IVF beautiful baby and this was my second natural pregnancy. My ivf Dr. is taking such good care of me and I am monitored regularly, but I lost one at 8 weeks in Nov, so it is a little raw. Even if I never have another child, I am blessed so with the one I have, but it is tough to wait this out. I really appreciate you sharing with me. I will check and see if you write more tonight and God bless you and the little life inside you.

I'll try my best to remember those numbers for you! I'm so forgetful these days.... I won't be able to post them until 9 am ET though... I hope things go well for you!

Kelly K - my goodness! That is a LOT bigger than my measurements! Did they change your due date based on it, or do they just think its growing GREAT???

 

Kelly K - March 28

They actually pushed my due date UP. I went down to 7.4 weeks intead of the 8 I should have been according to the first ultrasound. I'm really in for it with this kid. He's going to be wrapped around my ribs before it's all said and done.

D-Your first sono will show the sac diameter over on the side, I'm sure. I said my HCG wrong, at that point it was 2000. You are really sweet to look this up for me, thanks.

 

D - March 28

The problem is, they didn't give me a picture the first one.... just the last two.... I don't know if I can get the measurements from Medical Records or not...

 

Lucy - March 28

Oh D, that is not necessary. You are sweet to even think of it. I just have to last until next Monday for my next u/s. My HCG has been slowing down, not dropping at all, but taking 3 days or more to double, so I am extra worried I guess. Thanks again, I'll keep you posted.

Lucy - Well, my pictures have a spot for all the measurements, but they're empty! All I have is CRL and HR. At 5w4d the CRL was 12mm, at 9w6d it was 28mm. I have done a little looking around on the internet, and found some figures that might help you some. They're from all different websites, and I forgot to copy the links... In any case, one site said that the normal values can range 4-6 days from the expected size, and females may show a bit of a smaller CRL than males. Week 6: GS (gestational sac) 17mm, CRL 3-4mm; Week 7: GS 24mm, CRL 10mm; Week 8: GS 31mm, CRL 15-16mm; Week 9: GS 38mm, CRL 23-25mm; Week 10: GS 45mm, CRL 31-35mm; Week 11: CRL 41-50mm; Week 12: CRL 53-60mm, Week 13: CRL 67-75mm; Week 14: CRL 80-90mm, Week 15: CRL 91-105mm; Week 16: CRL 101-120mm; Week 17: 111-140mm; Week 18: 121-160mm Looks to me like the normal values can vary quite a bit! I've not been informed if my HCG levels have been checked at all.

Kelly K - are you sure they didn't mean 7mm? That would seem normal for 7-8 weeks....

 

D - March 29

Lucy - does your doc seem to think your sac size is ok? It seems like this early in a pregnancy, it changes so much in just a day that if your ovulation dates are off just a little bit, your sac will show a big difference. I hope everything works out for you... I know this waiting is hard.... I'm starting to feel like I might make it out of the woods since I've made it okay so far, but when I was 5-7 weeks, I have to admit, I was pretty scared! Especially when I started spotting. I hope everything goes well for you. When is your next appointment? You said it was at 7w... is that this week or next?

 

D - March 29

Lucy - Are you ok? I'm worrying about you! I hope I didn't scare you! Please let me know how you're doing!
