1 Sac, 2 yolks at 8w3d(2 Posts)
I'm an absolute mess. I'm 34 and this is my first pregnancy. I've had very few symptoms, just some mild cramps and occasionally tender breasts and of course tiredness. I started to become very paranoid that something wasn't right but obviously had nothing to compare it to s o tried to believe my partner and mum telling me I'm just lucky and it will be fine.
I wanted to see for myself so my partner agreed to a private early scan. By my calculations I was 8 weeks and 3 days. She couldn't see anything externally which I know is common this early so carried out a transvaginal scan. There was a gestational sac measuring 18mm in diameter and 2 Yolk sacs. Sadly that's all she could see. She wants me to come back in 2 weeks but she made it pretty clear she'd expect to see more at this stage but they like to give 'the benefit of the doubt' no further explanation given. I went to my GP yesterday and they have also booked me in for an early scan in 1st of March and some other tests as well but GP said it could be a MMC. I'm devastated. I really hope there is a baby there in 2 weeks but I feel it's false hope
It's a horrible and stressful wait, so sorry that you're having to go through it
