5 Weeks pregnant NoHB & Fetal pole only yolk sack present


Should I worry, I am 6 weeks pregnant and have only a yolk sack that they have seen on the U/S last week. I am going for another scan on Friday.

The thing is My last period was on 28 Feb 2012. They say that I should be +- 8 weeks but when the scan was done last week it looked like I was only +- 4/5 weeks. They drew Blood every 48 hrs last week, as I was admitted to hospital. The bloods show a great increase everytime.

Should I be worried and when should they see the heartbeat and Fetal Pole?

Please help Im going crazy untill Friday.

Dont worry that sounds completely normal. In my first and this pregnancy I had scans between 5-6 weeks and both times there was only a sac. When I returned 2 weeks later there was a yolk, fetal pole and heartbeat. I know it's hard, the wait is really difficult but things should be fine xxx

Nope, don't be worried. If your bloods look good then everything is fine. You could have just ovulated late which would make how far along you are off compared to your LMP.

Seeing a yolk sac is a HUGE positive! At 6w we only saw the yolk sac and gestational sac, no sign of the fetal pole. At 7w we saw the baby with a strong HB.

Hang in there and try to be patient. Just know that so far everything looks great for you!

That is what I have been feeling the whole time, I have not felt pregnant since last week, its my first time but I think I know my body. I have been getting the Morning, Afternoon& Evening sickness(dont know why they call it MORNING SICKNESS)
Was just a little worried but I thank you so much because your answer has put me at ease.
I thought I was going mad.
Thanks

I had a scan when I thought I was six weeks, the doctor told me I was only looking 4/5 weeks and there was only a yolk sac and a gestational sac, when I went back just 8 days later there was little bean complete with strong heartbeat! They did put me back four days, so is it possible you could be a little out on your dates??

That is what happened to me. I got scanned at 6 weeks and all they saw was the big sac, and NOTHING ELSE

But I then went back last week (two weeks after original scan) and BOOM there was my baby.

They were quite surprised as they were not expecting him/her to be that big as we saw nothing the last time, but they put me at 9 weeks, when I had only calculated 8.

So don't worry, just wait a little long :-D

I think I've already worried far too much in this pregnancy, and everything was fine, so I'd encourage anybody else to stay positive no matter what!

I had a scan at 7.1 and was told that it only looked about 5.3. I was told that since they could see the Fetal Pole and no HB, chances were I was going to have a miscarriage. I was handed a leaflet on miscarriage management and hugged by the nurses. I basically spent a week in bed, sobbing

When I went back a week later and lay on the scan table preparing to be told that I'd need a forced miscarriage I was told "Well this all seems fine, there's the heartbeat" I may have screamed "Oh my god!" at the sonographer. During the first scan nobody mentioned to me anything about late ovulation, the second scan that's all I heard.

So stay positive! I'm seeing this whole thing as a fairly unpredictable minefield, and worrying won't help no matter what. I know telling you not to worry is about as likely as you growing wings. I just wish someone would have told me that it could work out when I was like the living dead for a week.

So stay positive!

hi hun

i have a scan this morning i was thinking i was 6 weeks but they said for like 5 weeks, could only see youl sack and baby no fetal pole or heartbeat, i feel so scared now and told me to come back in 2 weeks( 2rd may) they said i could have had a miss miscarage? not sure what his is? i no there is nothink we can do now untill scans, fingers cross for you babe,
Who the heck are these people scaring all of you ladies with Miscarriage talk That just pisses me off. I had a scan this morning too 5+4 and saw a sac with yolk and the nurses were ecstatic about it! I am in a RE too so this is their specialty. They said I looked perfect and everything measured great. I did IUI with trigger and know EXACTLY when I ovulated (well within a day or so...) Don't fret seeing a yolk sack is GREAT at this point. Theres ladies who show a heartbeat and fetal pole at this point, but its not the case for everyone and does NOT indicate mc is imminent. Kick your feet up, relax and let lil beanie snuggle in! I go back in 2 weeks and 1 day (7+5) and they said that appt I should see the heart flicker, the fetal pole and hear the heartbeat
