They really shouldnt scan you until at least 6 weeks pregnant as the sac etc takes different times in different people to show up, I know because just prior to this pregnancy I had what was called a pregnancy of unknown location as they couldnt see anything on my scan and they scanned me right up until 8 weeks before this was diagnosed, the problem was I was convinced I had a miscarriage but my hcg levels were still continuing to go up but not as they should and the pregnancy had to be ended. This time when I was scanned early due to my previous history they scanned me at 6 weeks and told me that it might be too early to see anything, but we did, they really should generally wait till around 8 weeks before they diagnose or are unhappy with it being a viable pregnancy, what they should do is take your bloods every couple of days to make sure your hcg is increasing at a proper rate. I'd say its probably just too early to see and when you go back your little bean will have appeared xxxxxxxxxx
Thank you all for reassurances
It was a vaginal scan that I had, dunno about everywhere else but here they don't do an ultrasound scan until 11 weeks plus, always vaginal.
I definitely think I'm too early, but she kept saying "If you got a positive home pregnancy test I WOULD see something by now" so it got me panicking! x
This happen to me, don't worry babe I'm sure you are gonna be ok. With my baby I poditive at 3 weeks, I didn't even had my first on appt when I started spotting and went to ER, they did an ultrasound and nothing was there, she said there is no pregnancy. I was like how is that possible. They did a blood test and that was positive but low, they told me it was an ectopic pregnancy and how dangerous that was. I then had to go back for more blood test, it wasn't until I was like 6 weeks from my LMP that something started looking normal, my baby is now a healthy 6 year old. With my pregnancy right now I had like three pregnancy test at home and got positive, when I went to the doctor an to confirm because I was drinking some medication and their test was negative and was told I wasn't pregnant, since that had happen to me before I stopped drinking the medication and made an appt with my ob and requested a blood test wich came back positive. My conclusion was that my hormone level shows really early in pregnancy. Good luck
hmm. I had the same situation. The Dr's got my dates messed, as I have a dodgy cycle. It does sound a bit early, if you have a thick lining shows the body is preparing for the pregnancy to show.
If those tests say 1-2 I think it means 2-3wks pregnant, which is far too early.
The day my af was due, I went to the ER for bleeding because I had already had several positive pregnancy tests. They did a transvaginal ultrasound and couldn't see anything. They did bloodwork and scheduled follow up blood work and said all looked fine with my blood work, so they scheduled me an appt at 9 weeks Pregnant. I went in and saw my bubs and his heartbeat!
griffinh I thought that too! I went to the doctors and I expected her to say that she'd book a scan for like a week or two's time, then she told me to go in I thought "Ah maybe they CAN see that early" but all they did was worry me more!
No bled, cramped or anything, still getting positive tests and everything. In 2 days it'll be around 3 weeks since I ovulated - so I COULD only be 2 weeks pregnant!!! I'm getting increasingly angry that she's left me all night worrying myself sick when she could have JUST said "It's too early"
After being supposed to get the results at 1pm yesterday, I then got told to go home and they'd call by 5. I called at 5.30 and was told results don't come in till 8 so to call back at 9pm. Called back at 9pm and they said a doctor would have to call me back with the results so to wait for the call. It's now 8am and I've called AGAIN and they have told me I have to wait for a doctor...AGAIN!
