Prayers Please (pregnancy mentioned) **Update

Posted by   + Show Post

I have my early ultrasound tomorrow morning and honestly, I'm so scared to go. Last pregnancy I didn't see a heartbeat at the early ultrasound at 7+2 weeks, and even though the doctor said it was fine, it ended in a miscarriage a few weeks later. At exactly 6 weeks, it's fully possible that I won't see a heartbeat and it will be normal, but I know it'll send me into a panic. I want this baby so badly, and I'm so afraid of going through another loss.

For those willing to pray, please pray that my baby is healthy and showing a heartbeat! I'll update when I get home tomorrow.

UPDATE: Well, it didn't go quite as I was hoping, but it didn't go terribly either. I'm not really sure what to think, I've mostly been crying a lot from being scared of repeating what happened before. 

We went in and found a yolk sac, but the doctor couldn't find a baby for a while. He asked me if it was possible that I'm only 3-4 weeks pregnant. I said no, I got a positive test over two weeks ago, I'm supposed to be 6 weeks. He kept looking, and said he found what might be a baby, which would measure around 5w,4d. No heartbeat yet. He said it could go either way, it's really early so he can't tell me much. He said it may have been just a difficult ultrasound from how early it was, and I shouldn't be discouraged. It's hard, when every other person in my due date groups who had early ultrasounds saw heartbeats. It's also hard because last time I didn't get a heartbeat early on, I miscarried. 

Please continue to pray over this pregnancy. I so need a good outcome! I go back in two weeks, on May 6th, to see if the baby progressed and has a heartbeat or not. It's going to be a very difficult two weeks!

Augh, how hard! But, I think your doctor is right. You shouldn't be discouraged as it is *super* early to see anything definitive on an ultrasound. I'll be praying for your next to weeks to go by quickly and for some GREAT news on the 6th!

Hugs... With Lily (her death was chromosomal so nothing mc related) at 5w5d there was no baby and no hb and I was measuring only 5w. I went back at 6w6d and there she was measuring 6w6d with a hb of like 98 and they said with a hb that low it had started within the last 24hours. So there is hope! Hang in there and we will all pray!
