Post subject: 6w ultrasound no baby
Hi ladies - I did IVF and get a bfp! Well my number were going up but not as strong as they hoped. But they were going up to a point they were happy with. He did have me come in for a 6w us on Monday and there was a sac but no baby. He said my sac was also measuring at 5w and we know I was def 6w. He wants me to follow up this coming Monday for another us but he said if there's no baby still we should start the process of inducing a miscarriage. I'm not sure how I feel about this. What if he's just rushing me. I'm sure he knows what he's doing but a lot of the forums that I've gone on there have been woman with similar situations and all of them were told to return in 2 weeks not just one? Ugh I'm so stressed over this. Any advice? The Dr did the US himself

If you don't want to induce a m/c and want to wait it out even if there's still no sign of a baby next time, then thats totally your choice, I have a tilted womb and when pregnant with my 3rd child I had some bleeding at 7 weeks, went in and was told I was 5 weeks and no heartbeat well I knew my dates exactly , no question i was 7 weeks, but I had to go back for 3 more scans (at 2 weeks apart) before they wrote the words "viable foetus" on my notes and my daughter was finally born practically on the day I thought she should be
Sometimes even with all the modern technology they still can't tell you exactly whats happening and if you have a tilted uterus it makes it even harder to see properly
Hopefully by next week you should have a clearer picture of whats happening , but if you have a gut feeling about anything I'd go with it , and it can't do any harm to wait a little longer to double check that they're right , sometimes these early scans cause unecessary worry as not all pregnancies grow at the exact same rate , I will be hoping for good news for you xx

I had this with my daughter, I bled at 5 weeks pregnant but when i had my scan they said there was just a sac and that was only just 4 weeks - this didnt make sense as i had known for 10 days and had very strog BFPs.
When i went back 4 days later the sac had grown hugely (the dr was shocked by the difference in measurements!) and there was a fetus but no heartbeat.
So i had to go back about 10 days later at which point they saw a heartbeat and dated me at roughly 7 weeks 6 days (which meant i was over 5 weeks at the first scan - like i thought!)
Dont let them force you to do something you dont want to! It seems to me that babies can have growth spurts inside you as well!
I now have a healthy 8 week old daughter!
Fingers crossed for you! x
