The only thing you should see on a GOOD ultrasound at 4 weeks is a slightly thicker than normal uterine lining that is not starting to break up as it would if AF was about to arrive and a corpus luteum and no developing follicles on the ovaries - a gestational sac will be too small and can usually be seen by 5 weeks and then the baby and heartbeat by 7 weeks (and even this varies and some people do not see a heartbeat til 9+ weeks)

Hang in there - I'm sure you will see more at the next scan. Wishing you a happy healthy pregnancy!

Thanks, unfortunately he didn't mention a thicker uterine lining a corpus luteum and no developing follicles on the ovaries. Oh man I wish I knew this before so I could haved ask him. I will keep my fingers crossed and hope for the best next Tuesday.

I tested today and still have a BFP and am not bleeding so I hope this is a good sign.

I wish I could just not worry and take this as something exciting.

If you're not bleeding and you have a noticable BFP then i would say that you're not havign a chemical. Some women don't see anything one week, then go back a week later and see a little baby etc.

I had loads of wierd cramps last time, i really thought it was ectopic at times because they could be quite sharp!

As everyone said above really, your bean is only just implanting at 4 weeks so no chance of seeing a sack. I'm cross that he's worried you as he should know that and should have told you. Grrrr bad sonographer.

In really wish they wouldnt try and perform scans so early, its unfair on the poor parents, the amount of stress it causes.

I had one at 5 weeks and there was a sac but nothing else at all. Report also said possible eptopic as it was two early for them to confirm inuterine gestation.

Made myself sick with worry all for nothing. Im sure all is fine hun x

I wish this process wasn't such a guessing game at 1st. It is very nerve racking. Congrats on the girl.

Light brown discharge at this stage could be related to implantation bleeding, but keep an eye on it. I have never had it so am not too sure about it.

ShanandBoc - they do write weird things at early scans since if there is a gestational sac intrauterine then its HIGHLY unlikely to be an ectopic also - an ectopic would have a sac in the fallopian tube and not one in the uterus (unless it was twins and one was ectopic and that is VERY rare)

I think they should give doctors a really good ultrasound course on early pregnancy ultrasounds so that they know what to expect - the trouble is they are still working out our dates by LMP and until they realise that that is not very accurate they will continue to give us stress with too early ultrasounds. I will not go for one before 7 weeks with any pregnancy I have now as the stress was too much after a 5 week one the first pregnancy.

Sometimes you can have a pseudo sac in the uterus as well as an ectopic i was told and also i think cause there was free fluid in my left adnexa they said it couldnt be ruled out x

I agree w/ Tanikit they should give ultra sounds at 7 weeks so everything should be more or less where it should be then have one early and have to return week after week and be stressed out.
