Viability scan not good news

I have had my viability scan, no heart beat detected.................today I would be 7wks 3 days I have to go back next week to rescan. babies only measuring 2.9mm the gastation sack is perfect, yolk sac everything but no heartbeat. I feel so heavy hearted and sad I cant say and im back at work because as usual no one bloody understands ivf and for them everything will be ok.................what a heartbreak

I don't think its too early I think my little baby just stopped growing, its measuring 2.9 which the nurse said is really small

This is the thing, you really don't know until its proven and you won't know 100% until next week unless the nurse specifically said there is no chance? It's just awful and my heart goes out to you.

My line manager is not the most understanding either but if you feel like you'd prefer to be at home then I say make an excuse and go, you've been through enough. xx

the problem is when you tell your manager your going through ivf, then explaining what your appointments are for, then keep listening to 'it will be ok, if you look on the positive side' etc. Then its 'oh how did your scan go' 'everything will be ok next week'. im sorry im off loading to you im very sorry. I just feel so emotional right now, and I feel work have been supportive don't get me wrong but just expect to bounce back just like that. another girl had nearly 2 month's off in February because her father passed away shes managed to get another month off because shes still stressed, shes spending that month in turkey because it will do her good, baring in mind she did the same thing in june. But its ok, I just feel like leaving work and walking out.

That's true, I totally get you. At times we want to tell people what's going on so they can understand but unless they have been through it, they will never understand. And off load away! Feel free, we are all here together and can hopefully help each other out :)

I see, well we all have our issues/family life to contend and your teammate seems to be able to have time off as she needs it and I think that if you are feeling upset and wanting to walk out then maybe you could call in sick tomorrow and give yourself some breathing space and see how you feel. I don't advise walking out personally (I've done that once before and almost landed myself in trouble) but I understand why you want to.

Here any time you need to chat xx

I will never understand truly why people think it is ok to ask about every scan etc. It makes me kind of feel like I am describing a process that someone else is going through. I try to tell people that it's kind of like asking (when you know people are trying) if they had sex last night and when they will test to see if it worked. I mean - you wouldn't ask even your closest friend that. Why would I give every detail of exactly when and how every procedure has gone. And on top of that, asking when I am being pumped full of goodness knows how many hormones..... sorry, rant over xxxx

Reply

That is the best way to put it, thank you xx

I wish i could walk out sometimes when you have so much going on its not like you can focus anyway lol thank you so much xxx

I know, our heads are in a spin with the worry, treatments and outcome of tests etc.

It's not right that people think they can ask any question they feel like regarding scans or anything else for that matter. I'm kind of having that issue myself at the moment with two ladies in work, they know I started a cycle in Feb and that I had to wait for Lap and that I will be starting a frozen cycle (I've started but I'm not telling them) and they keep asking "when are you starting again and have the clinic called?" and all other general queries, part of it is because they care and they do want me to be successful in treatment and the other side is that they just can't help themselves. They probably think they are being supportive but get me on a wrong day, I just think they are nosy! I initially told a couple of people to ease my burden at work and also as I'm 34 and they kept asking if I wanted children and am I trying so I thought it would be easier to tell them the truth. I'm not really sure what I'm trying to say here but just supporting you and want you to know that you're not alone. xx

I’m so sorry for your loss. I went through a miscarriage last year & it’s truly heartbreaking. I think you should get your GP to sign you off; I did as I wasn’t up to working. Put yourself first. Again really sorry you’re going through this xoxo

I don't know whether I should have any hope for next week, I just wanted the nurse to be honest with me first time she said its too early to detect a heartbeat and we will see one next week, then she said the babies measuring way too small and we will discuss your next steps when your ready. we will give you a call! next steps????? I wasn't over the shock I was pregnant and to learn I've miscarried, I have no words just feel so so so sad........

Reply

I wish there was something I could say to make it feel better. My experience was different as baby wasn’t there. I really hope you get better news next week. xoxo

I’m sorry to hear this. I would take some time off work, it’s such a hard time and even if you think you know the outcome the wait can take it’s toll. When it’s happened to me I took time off as I just couldn’t think straight while I was waiting to find out for sure. The waiting was so much harder to deal with than the finding out I found. Xx

It’s exactly how i feel, i feel so much sadness. What will be the outcome thats what i keep thinking and if its not positive how will i get better, sorry to your hear your loss its such a heartbreaking journey xx

If it’s not good news you will get through it. It’s hard but you will. I’ve had two now unfortunately and each time I have reacted differently but I’ve come out the other side. I’m sad at times but on the whole I’m happy. Just don’t bottle up how you’re feeling.

It is such a heartbreaking journey, when you’re struggling to conceive in the first place you don’t think about what happens when you actually get pregnant and that it might not last. Xx
