Ok, you can all let out your collective breath. I’ll even let you give a small cheer. I’ll stick with cautious optimism but I’m not bothered if others want to dance about a bit. 🙂
There was a gestational sac in the correct location with a fetus inside. Dr. N was almost positive she could see a heart beat, but everything was very tiny and it was hard to get a good picture. The sac was measuring 5 weeks 0 days (I’m 6w2d today), but the fetal pole and yoke sac measured 6w1d so I’ve been sent home with instructions to drink lots of water, call immediately if there is any bleeding, stick with the shots and pills and come back Monday morning for another look. Dr. N feels certain that we’ll see and hear a heartbeat by then.
So…no ectopic and with the exception of a small gestational sac everything seems to be as it should be. Monday will tell us more. I think, for us, it will be an ongoing game of waiting a little longer for better information until things move beyond a near-microscopic level.
(Wow, I just realized this is my 700th post!)
