7 week 4 day scan


I went for my 7 week 4 day scan today to see if anything had appeared in the 2nd gestational sac and although this had got bigger and a yolk sac was now showing, there was no embryo or heartbeat. They said it’s highly unlikely that an embryo will grow at this point and it will more than likely just disappear. I never expected twins to be honest but had started to picture what this would be like 😔 Thankfully our other embryo had more than doubled in size and is doing great with a strong heartbeat. Looks a bit like a jelly baby at this point haha! I’ve been given the paperwork to book in with the midwife now, which is pretty surreal as I never thought I’d get to this stage, but I’m so thankful! Wishing all you lovely ladies lots of luck, wherever you are on this journey 🙏💕 xX

As far as I know. The 12 week scan seems ages away. Just over 2 weeks to go but very tempted to have a private one xx

I don’t blame you at all as all these waits between scans are nightmare! I’ve thought about doing the same myself. I’m really pleased everything seems to be good so far for you though 💕🤞 the best of luck xX

Really sorry to hear one embie may not have made it 😢

So pleased one is doing fine and growing into beautiful little baba!

Bet it’s a great feeling to be booking in with a midwife, all so real now. Bet you are counting down the days to that 12 week scan now!

All the best hun 😘 xxx

Thank you so much I really hope i do xxx

Glad to hear you’ve had good news on your scan. Hearing the heartbeat is such a great milestone to reach - you must be over the moon! I’m sorry about the second twin - sad news on that when you’re starting to expect you might get two xx

Thanks Hun 💕 yes we are made up about our little one that’s taken. It’s sad our 2nd Embie didn’t make it, but we are so glad we didn’t go with their advice and just have the one transferred. I hope your doing ok after your bfn? 😘 xX

Thanks Hun, I'm not great but I know I'll get there. Feeling better than I was last week at least 😘 Xx

You did the right thing having 2 transferred and huge congratulations your going to be a mum xx
