Nice Empty Gestational Sac

Not a shocker today- my ultrasound showed the same empty sac I had 4 days ago. Maybe it's a little bigger, but still empty. No baby. Even as I emptied my bladder for the transvaginal part of the u/s, I prayed so hard that he would find a baby with a heartbeat. Maybe you shouldn't pray on the toilet?

My doc was called out to deliver twins (not only do they get to have twins, but they do it during my appt time...) so I saw his nurse practitioner who I love. She's getting me set up for the D&C next week. Hopefully she'll call me with a time soon. Then Dr. Dachaeur will be calling to talk to me about everything.

Thanks again for the positive comments, e-mails, cards, phone calls... You are the most amazing group of people ever! This would be so much harder without the encouragement. I'm going to go eat lots of raw sushi and have some mango margaritas this weekend. Wish I could find a rollercoaster and a horse to ride. Kinda chilly for waterskiing. But I'm back to hot baths!

There's always next time...


  1. Come to KS - You can ride my horse!! I would recommend drinking the Mango Margarita in the hot bath! Thanks for the update - you're always in my thoughts and prayers.

  2. Enjoy that margarita! You deserve it and so much else. I'm so sorry you have to go through this.

  3. If you need a friend to share that margarita with I'm in!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  4. I've wondered the same thing about praying on the toilet! I couldn't help it, I prayed every day after my last IUI. Maybe after the next one I'll wait 'til I'm out of the bathroom to pray...

    And hot baths are always the first thing I go back to after a BFN.

    I'm sorry you're having to wait for it to be over. I can't imagine how hard it is. I hate it for you.
