No Yolk Sac at 7 mm gestation


Help! I thought I was 6w6d pregnant, but after an early scan at EPAS apparently my gestational sac is 7 mm but there is no embryo or yolk sac. Yet. The doc at hospital was horrible and filled my head with things like ectopic and m/c, and I know that these are all possible but she did not try to reassure me in the slightest.

My hcg levels were 3300 and i am going to get these rechecked tomorrow to see if they have risen.

I have read online that it may just be miscalculated dates and Im maybe just really early on.

Does anyone have any advice on this matter?

Hiya - I remember when i was pregnant with my LO and I thought I was 7 weeks and went for an early scan and i was only 5 weeks with only a sac visible. Your levels sounds really good so I wouldnt worry too much xx

hiya, i dont really know much about the size of the sac and how big they should be when the yolk sac becomes visible but if you look at one of my older posts, ive got a picture of my twins sacs, did the sac look about the same size as these? (they were empty when i went at exactly 5 weeks but nobody seemesd too concerned) if so i would say dont worry you may just be earlier than you thought i know how worried you must be though, i had a blighted ovum in october and they finally diagnosed it when the sac was 15mm long and i should have been 8 weeks but it remained empty go with your levels, see what they are doing and take it from there. are they going to scan you again in 10days. i hope everything works out well for you xx

thanks for your feedback! My positive test was on 23rd March and i actually had 2 negative tests on the 18th and 20th March. My +ve test was a clearblue digital with conception indicator and according to that i conceived 1-2 weeks previously..my last LMP was 15 Feb (withdrawal bleed)

So going by this, am i right im saying i could just be too early to see an embryo or a yolk sac?

Im at work and cant concentrate on anything! And since the day i found out i was pregnant i have been super worried anyway and this is making me so much worse!

Any feedback is appreciated guys!

oh wow that sounds like your just super early to me sounds like your about 5 weeks and the sac will be empty at 5 weeks, a yolk sac is usually seen at 5.5 weeks let us know how you get on xx

thanks again mummy2anangel!

yeah thats what me and my partner worked out when we were checking it out last night. I know it doesnt fit in with an LMP of 15 Feb but i was on the pill before this and could have ovulated late etc. also a 7 mm sac ties in with a 5 week pregnancy so im trying to stay positive or i'll go out my mind with worry.

Just wish the doc had maybe tried to give us a little bit of reassurance.

Wish tomorrow would hurry up so i can get my levels checked

luckily the majority of stories like this online have had a good outcome so fingers crossed

I had an early scan at what I thought was 5+4. Only a very small 4mm gestational sac was seen, and my hcg was 2000. The tech thought I was probably more like 4+5/4+6. I went back for a scan about 10 days later and saw that a yolk sac, fetal pole and heartbeat had appeared! At my dating scan at 13 weeks I was only 2 days behind my original dates, and not 5 or 6 like the early ultrasound tech thought. So at 5+2 I only had a 4mm gestational sac with hcg of 2000. xx
