Done 2 hpt, still don't believe it but! Have a scan tomorrow, but if I am pregnant I would be maybe 4 weeks. So I don't think they could see anything anyway.

So I had my scan today. Measuring 5w1d, but according to lmp I should be 8 weeks. Has that ever happened to anyone else? Rushed to dr after scan and they said hcg level was 1200. Good if I'm 5 weeks but bad if I'm not. Apart from not adding up it all looks ok so far original.gif

Good luck at your Pem will be looking out to see how u go!


Adamira, sounds like your dates are off, but if you were 8 weeks i think you would be due in May? Are you sure you are 8 weeks? How long are your normal cycles? The main thing is that they said all looks well! I dont go by LMP because well i didnt have a period for 3 months and got pregnant and with my DS my cycles were about 38 days long.

Hey everyone!
Nervy my cycles are completely erratic too. The dr said as long as the blood tests match the ultrasound that is what they will use. So that would make me 5 weeks1 day. Just in case did another blood test today so hopefully the results show an increase.
I have to have another scan in two weeks, just to make sure, but like you said as long as all is well biggrin.gif
This would make my due date mid June, unless something changes.

All good at today's scan (breathes a sigh of relief). Put me back by 4 days but oh well. Heartbeat was 130. It was a trans vaginal scan but one of the best scan experiences I have ever had. Oh and even tho I have had high HCG levels there is only one. Next scan in 2 weeks. Will try to relax until then (I have miscarried after a heartbeat has been detected before).

#20 Nervy

Posted 12 October 2012 - 03:49 PM

Yay Pem!!
How many weeks are you now? Is it later than you were when you miscarried? I always find that making it past the point you were last time is a big milestone! hheart.gif

#21 pem

Posted 12 October 2012 - 04:08 PM

Nervy - I am 6w2d and no I was 8 weeks when i had the scan and miscarried at 10 so I have a few weeks to wait. Having said that tho I have also had a successful healthy pg too with my darling DS so I'm not too on edge

#22 Nervy

Posted 12 October 2012 - 06:20 PM

Exactley, I just think that every single baby had to be 6 weeks and 20mm at some stage!

Hey Adamira, (and everyone else!)
Been stalking the june DiGs because all being well i could end up here (currently in May) my last lmp was 8weeks ago but my dating scan (at what i thought was 7weeks) put me at 5weeks.. all they could see was the sac.. have another scan in a fortnights time - should be 8 weeks along by then. Such a long agonising wait to see if things have developed!! Ive had no negative signs but little symptoms.. but eith DD i had few too - just tired- a walking zombie come 5pm.

Its hard the not knowing. my doc seemed completely unphased by it..

I'm having my first scan on the 5th Nov when I'll be 8+3. I think my scan will actually tell me I'm a few days less as I think I O'd a bit late this month.

We were hoping to get in sooner but couldn't get an appointment any earlier that DH could get time away from work to attend. Oh well...

Glad to hear those who have had scans already have had good results.

My first scan isn't until 19th November - which is my 12 week scan - it's soooooo far away!
