The good news: There were two gestational sacs.
The not-so-good news: One is too small to hope for anything, and the other was empty. No yolk sac. No baby.
My RE explained that she would expect to see a yolk sac by 5.5 weeks, which puts me only 3 days behind schedule. She’s not worried.
I have another scan scheduled for one week from today. That’s when we should for sure see a baby and a heartbeat.
How do I feel? Sick to my stomach, but not because of morning sickness. In fact, most of my nausea and other symptoms went away yesterday. I know it’s still early, and I know symptoms come and go, but I can’t help but worry.
This is going to be a long week in limbo.
ETA: I’m sorry if this post sounds like I have no hope. I do have hope, but it sort of comes and goes. Part of me thinks I’ve had nothing but bad news the last 3 years trying to have a baby, so why should I expect any different this time? while another part fully acknowledges that I have every reason to be hopeful.
