Hi- I need help dating my pregnancy My u/s on June 6th showed a perfectly round but empty gest. sac (no yolk sac or fetus) that they say measured exactly right for where they thought I was. They say I was 6w4d. According to my dates, I think I was more like 5w6d at the u/s which might explain the empty sac. HOPEFULLY!! So here is my info: I o'd on May 8th (I know cuz I used opk) and bd'd the 6th, 7th, and 8th. Did I concieve on May 8th or does it take a day for that to happen after ovulation? How many DPO can you concieve if you bd on the day of? I am hoping that I concieved more like May 8th 9th or 10th. That would be very reassuring, but they swear my sac was measuring 6w4d. That seems impossible to me. HELP! ? How far along was I really on June 6th?

By the way, I think they calculated my pregnancy based on a 28 day cycle with my lmp (April 21st). I actually have a 33 day cycle and o'd on cd19. But why would they swear my sac was measuring 6 wks 4 days? That seems impossible,

Okay ALEXANDRA, I've put in your ovulation date into my pregnancy on Fertlilty Friend it says you are 6 weeks 4 days today. So you would have been 6 weeks & 1 day on Tuesday. You definately can't be any more than that if you o'd on the 8th May because an doesn't start developing into a fetus/embyro until it's been fertilised and it can't be fertilised if it hasn't been realised. So maybe they said it measured correctly because they wanted to rea__sure you! Do you know the measurements?

 

alexandra33 - June 9

Buffy- my partner in crime! No, they didn't tell me the measurements. But I think you are right- they probably were just trying to rea__sure me. I am beginning to think my doctor is too hasty! She didn't ask me anything about my cycle length or o date or anything. she didn;lt take blood either. Did yours? If I were only 6w1d on june 6th, I am hoping that I was just too early to see anything. You can tell I am really trying for some hope and that I really don't want to suffer mc again!! Only thing that worries me is no yolk sac. ....cant do anything but wait. My symptoms are raging! I have been so nautious and my b___bs hurt so much. This has to be real!! Thanks for your help. I will try fertility friend. never been there.

hi alexandra33 - if your symptoms are still raging, i think you should chalk this up to them getting your dates wrong for sure! i just put your dates in and like buffy's, my numbers all say on tuesday you would have been 6w1d... too early to see more than a sac! good luck and try to stay positive... hard, i know... many folks are sending good wishes and thoughts your way!

Thanks hcw- I remember you from lucky thread. how are you? Thanks for your input. I will be 7 weeks exactly then at next u/s. I hope we see a yolk sac and fetus this time. Does anyone know why the yolk sac is more significant? I have heard I should have at least been able to see THAT at 6 weeks. The absence of yolk sac is what made my dr. say I may have blighted ovum. SAhe said the absence of that is what made her a little worried.

ALEXANDRA view this website very enlightening http://radiology.creighton.edu/pregnancy.htm#section3. Says that sometimes a yolk cannot be seen unitl it's 20mm in size.

 

alexandra33 - June 9

Thanks Buffy- I checked that out. very interesting, but it says that with a v____al probe, which is what I had it should show at 10mm or 5 weeks. Anyways, doesn' t this all seem so abstract? I mean kids grow at different rates. Shouldn't fetuses be able to grow at their own rates too?! LOL. baby dust!

Did you know that ALEXANDRA is the name I want if and when I have a girl!! My DH doesn't like it says it's to posh but my name is Virginia and considered POSH!!!! I also like ASHLEY and MADISON. I just thought I'd mention it!

 

buffy2297 - June 9

Yes, I guess only time will tell. I'm trying so hard to hold it together. DH is still being a pain about dates so I may not get my scan on Wednesday after all.

 

alexandra33 - June 9

Posh??? I guess it is kind of queenly isn't it:). lol. I was named after my great grandmother and my mother. In Greek families, everyone of the same s_x in the family line has the same name or variations of it. Have you ever seen "My Big Fat Greek Wedding" Well, that is NOT an exaggeraiton of how we really are! Everyone does everything together! It is annoying sometimes, but we love it! I hope you dh can figure out how truly agonizing this is for you and try to support your scan on Wed. But if not, how long would you have to wait for?

 

buffy2297 - June 12

Well hope you are okay. my nausea has gone which is worrying me. I won't get scanned now til Monday evening next week. It's like torture having to wait. I will be thinking of you tomorrow, so good luck I'm sure it will be fine.

 

alexandra33 - June 13

Buffy-Strangely, my nausea is gone too! But then again we have to remember that symptoms come and go. Sometimes they can disappear for a week and come back. My bbs still hurt, I still feel strains in my lower ab and I am winded when I go up stairs, but no sickness. But like I keep saying, symptoms don't mean anything anyhow with a blighted ovum. However, I have been reading a lot of threads on this site from past months about early ultrasounds and it seems that there is no real reason to be too concerned until 8 weeks or so when nothing can be seen. I hope they are right! I am so sorry you have to wait till Monday. I will be praying for you! SO NERVOUS about today. My bf called in sick to work so he could come. Phew!

good luck today alexandra33 - i'm sending good thoughts and best wishes your way for a robust and growing u/s image today! so glad bf will be at your side! fingers and toes crossed for you! take care...

 

buffy2297 - June 13

Well I've just got in from work. Worried about you all day. I've been in for 5 minutes if that and still no update. I'm praying it's good news!!! It's 4.38pm here so its only 10.30 with you I think!!!

 

buffy2297 - June 13

No 11.39am! 1 hour out.

 

alexandra33 - June 13

Actually, I am 3 hours behind even that! We are on Pacific Standart Time USA. It was actually 8:39 am when you last wrote me. (9:17 now) So you are essentially 8 hrs ahead of us here in the Bay Area ( Calif.) I will not update again till this afternoon like at 3 or so, which means 11 pm for you. Thanks for your support Buffy:) hopefully I will see our baby!
