Sunnie

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

beagle

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.

Juliet

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.

Liana

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

daysgoby

Thalia -

Please take care of yourself.

Linda

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.

Nicole


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.

PBfish

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

akeeyu

Oh, fuck.

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

Jenny

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!

Sarah

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.

Lynnette

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...

Megan

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.

katie

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

Cricket

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

Lisa

Just so very sorry...

thisgirl

Hoping for you.

Summer

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.

zarqa

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.

Leggy

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....

Demeter

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.

Nikole

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.

Mellie

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.

patricia

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.

Alchemilla

So sorry that you have to go through hell.

OvaGirl

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.

Elizabeth

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

Meg

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

S

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.

Chelsi

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....

Cali

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

Liz

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

Julia S

I am so sorry.

Portlairge

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

KIMMER

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...

Susan

oh Shit.

You are in my thoughts.

sabrina

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

sabrina

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

Crystal

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

WTF??

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

art-sweet

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

art-sweet

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!

Julianna

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

You are in my thoughts,

Julianna

Heather

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

Trackers1

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.

cass

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

Erin

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.
