No heartbeat. The fetal pole was over 5(mm?) and generally if you can't hear it by then you won't and that means m/c. I have to go next week to have a super high tech u/s, just like last time, and the doctor usually comes in and specifically tells you what signs she's seen that indicate an impending m/c. If it's over, I'm having the D&C next week becasue last time I waited for it naturally over six weeks and thought everything worked itself out, but the u/s still showed the sac and I had to have a D&C anyway : I can't waste time at my age. It's just hard to believe that at my age the risk of m/c is about 1/25, according to my OB, and I've been unlucky two times in a row. How likely is that. However, there still is a chance for a miracle next week and maybe my ovulation days were off, but I think it's unlikely, we'll see.
Well I just got back from the high-tech u/s and it confirmed what I was probably sure of already. The baby stopped growing at 6wk 3day and as far as we know never had a hb. The gest.sac was irregular shaped, which apparently is another bad sign. The doc said that most likely it was a chromosomal disorder or less likely a thyroid issue, or even less likelt stress related. So I'm planning to do the D&C soon and back to the TTC board for me. We'll keep on trying and see what happens...
I wish healthy and happy pregnancies for everyone here, and I'll continue to update the DDC thread for you all.
