Thalia, sadly, I know exactly how you feel right now.


No. No! This just can't be. Why can't we all land on the happy side of the statistics?

I'm sorry you're going through this. I hope the chipper U/S tech was right somehow.

My thoughts are with you and yours.


Oh Thalia, I can't imagine how you must be feeling. I don't know enough about this - but there seems an awful lot of comments from people who say nothing is conclusive. Hang in there. So many people are thinking of you.


Please try your best to keep the faith. Really. I've seen many times that measurements are off.


Thalia -

Please take care of yourself.


Thalia, let us pray that the sonographer that was so mindless that she thought your embryos might actually have floated around in your for an entire week, on vacation if you will, is also so mindless that she isn't able to measure things correctly. Please be good to yourself and take it easy until you can get in for another U/S...and hopefully not by the same person.


I hope things are alright for you. Your betas are so great. Maybe Buffy is just a slow starter. We will all hold out hope for you.


oh no.
I'm so sorry. I'm hoping against hope that the tech measured wrong.
be well.


Oh, fuck.

Honey, I am so sorry. So very very sorry.


Thalia, reading this breaks my heart. I can't say I know how you feel but I can say I am just so very sorry. I don't want to be all pollyanna but I don't want to be negative either. We'll be here for you either way. Thinking of you!


Thalia, I am so very sorry to hear this news, but I'll wait until you have more confirmation before I say anything else. I am hoping with all my heart that there is something wrong with the measurements and that things are OK for you.


I'm going to keep hoping, because really, what else can we do? I will tell myself that the scan equipment must be faulty or needs to be recalibrated, or that the embryo decided to implant in a very out of the way place that is hard to measure. The only thing I can offer, is the fact that twin pregnancies often don't measure the same, with one being smaller for the days, or not showing up on the ultrasound at first, so there must be something to account for this discrepancy, right? I will keep you in my thoughts and hope that this is all wrong, just wrong...hugs, sweetie...


Oh Thalia, I'm so sorry that you didn't get wonderful news at your scan.
I have been where you are and I know its hard to hope, hard to do anything except cling to the last shreds of your sanity. But really, all is not lost, its still early. Please hang in there.
You will be very much in my thoughts during the year-long week until your next scan.


Thinking of you... from what others have said it sounds like you still have hope...


I hate you've been delivered such a shock. I, too, sincerely hope it is merely temporary.


Just so very sorry...


Hoping for you.


Thalia, I know just how devastating it feels to see an empty sac. I hope the fetal pole you saw is a fighter. Regardless of what you see in the u/s next week, I know the wait will be excruciating. You will be in my thoughts, my friend.


Dammit, I am so sorry you're having to go through this. I have to ditto what Catherine and others have said though. It doesn't have to be over just yet. The standard deviation on ultrasound dating is +/- 3 days, it may be more depending on the machine and the technician. I'm hoping for you.


Having been through 3 blighted ovums in 2 separate pregnancies, I don't want to sugar coat things. I can't stop you from giving up hope, if that's a defense mechanism that works for you (I know with me I'd rather be pessimistic and be pleasantly surprised than the other way around), but please don't stop meds, et al until its definitive. I'm sorry you have to go through this, and I'm really hoping you just have a slow poke on your hands....


Oh, Thalia, I am sorry. Did you not have another BETA? It would help to determine if you are just behind but everything is still normal. Hopefully it is and you find a beannie next week.


I'm not giving up hope for you yet. At my 5w6d/6w us, we could see a sac, yolk sac, but no clear fetal pole, and everything seems to be fine now.

I hope the time goes by quickly until your next appt. The hours seemed to drag on forever for me.

Sending you lots of hugs.


Oh Thalia, I'm so sorry you're on yet another leg of the rollercoaster. It's not fair at all. Even if you can't hold out hope, we here in the computer are for you.


Oh I am so sorry about this. It blows to be on the wrong side of statistics. I was very bitter about it for a long time. In fact, I'm still a little bitter about it. And you have every right to be too.


So sorry that you have to go through hell.


Thalia I'm so sorry. And reading through some of the above comments I'm hoping that it IS too early...

it's not fair.


Oh, Thalia. I am so, so sorry. Is there any reason to hold out a little hope? I am thinking of you.


I'm still hoping as well. Thinking of you during this stressful time.


Oh fuck fuck fuck......

I'm thinking of you and praying that the wand monkey is a fuckwit, and that the bean is okay. I'm sorry that you have to go through this right now, and I wish that there was something I could say that would help. We're all pulling for you both.


This is suck-tastically stressful, but like Kath wrote below I am going to continue with positive thoughts for you. I'll keep you on my prayer list....


oh fuck. You have been on my mind & will continue to be like a classic song. It just doesn't make sense.


Thalia, I'm so sorry for all that you are going through. My thoughts are with you. {{HUGS}}

Julia S

I am so sorry.


Hi Thalia
Thinking of you at this difficult time. I am firmly keeping the fate that things will work out ok.


Oh Thaila,
I'm so very sorry. I hope that you DO get some very good news next week, it is still very early. Thinking of you my dear...


oh Shit.

You are in my thoughts.


coming out of lurkdom to extend my condolences. i'm so sorry thalia.


but i'm also holding out hope, i meant to say. wishing you strength...


no f'ing way! I'm going with some of the other posters that nothing is conclusive right now. I will pray for you sweetie!

waiting line


Like many others, I'm going to pray and continue to hope - goddamnit.


Hoping and praying that you've just got a slowpoke on your hands.


Unfortunately my blog won't reassure you on this point. But I do know others have had this happen and wound up with a baby!


I am so very sorry you are having to endure this wrath.

You are in my thoughts,



I am so sorry about all of this. I will continue to hold out hope.


Oh my lord, I hope this is just too early.

I'm sorry that you've got to go through that - but totally understand the way your mind thinks, I do the same thing.

Hoping this turns out well.


Ugh. This limbo sucks, but I'm going to keep everything crossed in the meantime. Thinking of you.


I'm so sorry. We'll be thinking of you. There's nothing else that can be said.

Fertile Soul

I'm so sorry. So sorry. I cant believe this. Everything was just fine, and now i come back to this update. I'm just really sorry.
