Eight-week scan at last today with Dr K. I could immediately see two blobs, one small grey one and one larger, darker one. The grey embryo hadn’t made it very far, as expected I guess, but the other one looked very promising to my eyes.
Unfortunately, the surviving embryo is only measuring at 6.5 weeks and the heartbeat is around 80, and weak, when it should be 140 and strong. So, although Dr K said it could go either way, he is not optimistic.
You can see the heartbeat below in the top scan, trying its best to hang on in there.
If it doesn’t, it’s just not meant to be and was never meant to survive.
Another scan next Tuesday, for which I’m bracing myself for the worst.
At least I have a frostie in the works, so all is not lost for this cycle.
