UPDATE- So I had the scan. Mixed news. They saw the gestational & yolk sac, and a tiny flicker of a heartbeat. However baby is measuring only 5 weeks 5 days, so about 6 days behind where it should be. I have to go back in a week for another scan to hopefully see some growth.
Could it be a late implanter? Or is this all a bad sign? Crikey they is so damn hard.
I'm 6+4 today and have been spotting with mild cramps for over 10 days following a very nasty stomach bug. My clinic have reassured me it isn't anything to worry about. Last night however, the spotting turned to bleeding and the cramping, although still fairly mild, has become more constant. The clinic have agreed to scan me this morning (counting down the minutes!).
I'm petrified. I'm 39, this was our last frostie. I had a late term miscarriage (23 weeks) last March (following successful first transfer), and an early miscarriage last October (miraculous natural conception) and 2 x BFNs from FETs last August and December. This was our 4th transfer.
I don't know what to think. If this is all over do we have the emotional energy and stability to start all over again? I guess the answer to that is straightforward enough as I'm not ready to give up on this journey.
I am still allowing myself to believe that it isn't all over. If you don't have hope on this 'adventure' then there's nothing left.
One thing I do know for definite is that this forum is a phenomenal place. It makes me feel safe and not alone. Thank you all for that.
Wish me luck!
