He just said it's just a little early to see and explained how tiny everything is at that stage - he also said things looked good and the sac was nice and round indicating healthy! If things are going wrong apparently they kinda go flat like letting a balloon slowly deflate.

I'm sure you'll be ok hunny - I think you were scanned too early and IMO from my experience they shouldn't scan until 7 wks+ as it causes so much upset and stress when a baby isn't seen, but had the scan been done a few days later that stress wouldn't have been necessary xx

Goodluck! Please message me after your next scan - I don't want to miss your update xxxx

I will definitely let you know!

Hi Ohiomom

This is exactly what happening to me went to the clinic at 6 weeks 1day and i know exactly as I had IVF and they only saw two sacs and two egg but not Fetal pole or HB. The ultra sound lady said it is probably two earlier and I have an awful two weeks wait for another scan. This is horrible and my heart goes out to you as I know how much worrying I am doing. Looking forward to your update x

Oh, we are so in the same boat! My LMP was 6/22 as well, and had a transvag ultrasound on 8/3 and they couldn't see a fetal pole either. They kind of freaked me out. But my HCG is still climbing appropriately. I have another ultrasound on Friday, and I just keep telling myself everything is OK. It's what I have to do to get thru the day, you know?

I'll be keeping my fingers crossed for you, that everything turns out fantastic.

I've been reading a forum www.misdiagnosedmiscarriage.com and they have dozens of stories of women who were told they had no fetal pole at 6 weeks, only to have a strong heartbeat by 8 weeks. Don't stress too much! ray:

I will let you know how things turn out. I go to the doctor's office in two hours for my second u/s. Crossing my fingers. I felt much better reading the misdiagnosed miscarriage website as there are alot of people in our situation and things turned out just fine. Thanks Ladies - I'll keep you posted!

I too had a scan at 6 weeks and had no fetal pole. At 6w 4d we had a heartbeat. It was probably just too early to see. Did they see a yolk sac?
