  1. I'm about in my 3rd week (since my ovulation date) and I observed two mornings of sharply falling waking temperatures along with some moderate cramping. I grew concerned since TCOYF taught me that falling waking temps may be a sign of a possible miscarriage.

    I went to see the doctor today and got my very first ultrasound. My doctor showed me the tiny sac in my uterus, with the fallopian tubes to the right and left. Everything seemed ok, but my bloodwork hadn't come back yet at that time.

    This evening I received a call from her and she said my pregnancy hormone level is high (which is great!) but they're REALLY high. She said she would've expected to see more in the ultrasound for levels that high, and she's concerned this could be an ectopic pregnancy.

    Hopefully she'll get my name onto a list tomorrow (Sat) to get a high quality ultrasound done so they can confirm what we saw today - that the baby is indeed growing in the uterus, where it should be!

    So, I was wondering... has anybody who found out they had an ectopic pregnancy been able to preserve the fetus?

    Thanks in advance!

  9. Hi everyone... thanks so much for the positive vibes! :flowers: It worked!

    Went in for a detailed ultrasound this morning, and things look fine! So I'm a bit stumped (but thankful!). :rolleyes:

    The sac is where it should be - in the uterus - and the technician says that it measures 5 weeks, 3 days, give or take 3 days. :confused1: I'm not sure how that works out because I KNOW I ovulated on 3/10, which would put me at under 4 weeks. The lady also said that it's at this stage of the pregnancy that their measurements are most accurate.

    We saw the sac, the yolk (I think that's what they called it), and a tiny thing that is the baby... and the baby's heartbeat! It reminded me of ET's heart that glows... we saw the baby's heartbeat like a light that gets stronger, then dimmer, stronger, then dimmer! That was really neat!

    So... I will stop worrying so much about it. Worrying is tiring! :yes: I'm just glad it's growing where it should be, I won't worry about it measuring bigger than it should at this point!
