Hi everyone. Very brief background for anyone that hasn't seen my previous posts, I'm 44 and got a bfp for the first time a few weeks ago, it was natural. Started bleeding almost two weeks ago and immediately went for a scan which showed a tiny, empty gestational sac. Another scan a week later showed minimal growth (less than 1mm). I had yet another scan this morning at what should be just over 7 weeks but still an empty sac with practically no growth. The gynae said it's not so much about measuring behind at this stage but if a gestational sac was seen two weeks ago then there should definitely be something in it by now. Will have a final scan on Friday when I'm back in the UK and then think about medical management I guess. Doctor has suggested I try IVF as I have a good fsh level and have been able to get pregnant. It was never something I'd considered and I'm almost positive my OH won't go for it but now I can't get the idea out of my head. Cost would be covered by my health insurance, I just don't know that I want to put us through all of that. Not least because you can't have IVF in this country unless you're married (unbelievable) so I would have to fly to Bangkok. I just don't know what to think right now but I need to get a shift on as I'm nearer 45 than 44 and OH is in his 50s. Given how little time we will be in the same country for the rest of this year and his very low sex drive IVF may well be the only way forward for us. I really think he won't go for it though. Sorry for rambling, I'm just all over the place at the minute.
