We heard from Dr Yash. Mrs C had a scan yesterday at seven weeks. As yet, no heartbeat detected and bubble is "a little slow growing". Dr Yash says not all heartbeats are detected at seven weeks, so maybe implantation happened a few days later. Mrs C has been put into the clinic as a matter of precaution. The docs are taking very good care of her. She is not bleeding or in any pain, and there is no sign of miscarriage.
It's not the awesome fantastic "we have a heartbeat and everything is on track" news I had hoped for, but Dr Yash said she thinks bubble will catch up, these things happen. From my google research I see many cases where heartbeats aren't detected at seven weeks, so I'm not giving hope. Mrs C also has a slightly anteverted uterus which may make scanning at this stage a little difficult.
We will have more tests next week. Dr Y says a scan in a week should give us a clearer idea of what is going on. I suspect she won't wait a whole week, but won't tell me exactly what tests will be done and when so that I don't get anxious. That is perfect for me because the anxiety I have the day of a test is quite rotten. I prefer surprise results.
For now, we just sit tight and wait. I am so not good at doing that.
Mrs C is emotionally and physically well. Her children are being cared for at home by family members. I hope she doesn't get too bored in the clinic the poor love. She is my hero.
