I just had another vaginal ultrasound yesterday. While the gestational sac and the yolk sac are clearly visible, we still cannot see a heartbeat. The doctor thinks he may have seen a fetal pole, but for now we will just have to wait. My HCG numbers are still rising, but my nurse says by 7 weeks we should see more. The last 3 weeks have been such a roller coaster since at 4 weeks, my numbers were low and slow to rise - I was told to prepare for another m/c (I had one in March). At 5 weeks, my numbers jumped and continued to rise. By 6 weeks, everyone was confident this was a viable pregnancy. Now, at 7 weeks, we're back to preparing for the worst. I'm exhausted and heartbroken. I haven't given up hope yet (we have another u/s Monday), but I'm absolutely broken from the roller coaster of emotions. What to do?
