With this pregnancy, my periods had been regular for several months (I also have PCOS, but it's been very responsive to dropping hormonal birth control and switching to cloth pads) and so when my period was late...I took a pregnancy test and it was positive.
Because I have a history of severe PID, I called the doc right away to get an ultrasound to make sure the baby wasn't ectopic. First ultrasound, I thought I was 6weeks, and had an empty uterus with "something" on my ovary. I heard from the radiologist, they told me he was ectopic.
A few days later I saw the OB, and low and behold I had an empty sack that was measuring 4 weeks 3 days. Two weeks later I measured 7 weeks with a fetal pole and a yolk sack!
So it's possible. I'm now 21 weeks.
I spent several days grieving for my "ectopic" baby, and coming to the realization that I wouldn't have this baby. Then had to spend several more days coming to the realization that I WAS having a baby, even though I had come to the acceptance that we were "done". So I know how you feel, with the sadness and stuff.
Praying for you and that little bean.
