I had a private ultrasound done today and they only do abdominal. I'm 6w2d so I was hoping to see a heartbeat but I measured behind at 5w6d and no heartbeat yet. Everything measured symmetrical so she said that was good and 4 days off isn't uncommon this early. I know my dates are correct so I'm just measuring small but I'm also reading having a tipped uterus can make it hard to even see a baby abdominal at this point during pregnancy. My bladder was so full she barely was able to get the right angle to see much of anything. Although I know I have a tipped uterus this is the first time I've ever measured small and not seen a heartbeat by 6 weeks according to my dates. Hubby knows I'm a little worried though I try not to be, he's a sweetheart and reminds me that every pregnancy is different. Just a little nerve wracking after losing Ean at 13w2d in October. My progesterone was low with just the 200mg oral so I had the injections and then also used suppositories. Optimal at this stage is 26 so I had to increase progesterone to daily dose of 400mg oral and 200mg suppository but it looks good now.

Precious Baby so loved by Mommy, Daddy, Brother and his two Sisters. This precious baby was our little rainbow after a storm, our remaining ember of hope and an answer to prayer. On April 2, 2018 when I was 10w2d pregnant we learned our baby no longer had a heartbeat and was only measuring around 8 weeks. We believe this precious baby was a boy. He arrived in Heaven when his heart stopped at 8w4d on March 21, 2018. His body was delivered at 12w on April 14, 2018 @ 3:20PM. He was laid to rest April 16, 2016 about 3:40PM. Riley Ember and Ean Rigel are buried together and are in Heaven together with their other two siblings. Riley Ember will be forever loved and remembered.
