Tiny, tiny sac

Bad news - only a tiny sac was found (under a much larger placenta) - ultrascan doctor says it is about half the size it should be - and it does not look like a viable pregnancy.

My evil fibroids are looking bigger than ever - the only way he could find the evidence of my 'pregnancy' was through my tummy.

I spoke to my doctor a few minutes ago (on the train - I am sure the folk next to me were dazzled with hearing about my uterus!!) - and he wants me to keep taking the drugs for another week - next ultrascan next Friday when I will be 6 weeks and 6 days. But he wants me to prepare for the worst. He thinks I won't need a d and c and I will pass it all naturally.

I asked her on behalf of my husband what the chances of this turning into a viable pregnancy - and he said less than 10 percent.

I am kinda numb - I have known all week with my way below average betas that this was the most likely outcome - but I wanted to believe.

My lovely sister is upset - she had such hope. But I suppose we have three frozen ones to play with - once I have got over this. But I tell you I think it will be sometime before I cycle again.
