Anyone else has this. Early scan, nothing on it. 4 positive HPT & Digi +1-2 weeks


Hi! I have had 2 positive FR tests (first one a good line, second MUCH darker (top is more recent)...


I had a positive IC and also a positive ASDA test.

Went to dr and she said because of past mc's she wanted me scanned.

Went to my scan today as planned. The sonographer laid me down and did the internal and I was watching her face and it dropped from "happy smiley positive" sonographer, to serious "I'm sorry" sonographer.

She just went "Sarah, I can't actually see a pregnancy here and your lining is thick, 15mm"

I said "I've had 4 different types of positives, feel sick, and am 5 days late. Could I be too early?"
She went "Not if you're getting positive HPT's, I should see something. I'm going to get bloods done."

So I waited and had bloods and asked the dr his advice. He said she ruled out ectopic (which she hadn't told me, she just said she had to check for it!) and that if the bloods come back + then I have to go back for more in a week or so.

So I waited around because he said to wait till 2, then the sonographer came in and said "no you need to go home, it could be up to 5pm the results come back. We'll call you this evening. If your levels are up then they will be able to tell how far gone you are, and why I couldn't see anything, but try not to worry"

So I've come home and my Clear Blue digi had arrived (eBay!) so I pee'd on it out of morbid curiosity.



What the hell is going on? Has anyone else been through this? My LMP was Feb 27th. I have 6 week long MC's usually, so I was due on around the 10th. I'm only around 4 days late and I think ovulation should have occurred on 27th of March.

So really, from conception, I'm only likely to be around 3 weeks or even less. Could that be why they've seen nothing? And what does "thick lining" mean?

hey i think you are definately pregnant. around the 20th of december when i found out i was pregnant i had a private scan done to which no sac or embyro was seen just a thick uterine lining. the ultrasound tech asked could i be pregnant and i was no im not sure, went home bought tests and tested with fmu net morning and low behold was pregnant. bought digi test and tested later that day with the weakest urine ever and it came up 3+...

it shows how the scan showed up nothing bar a thick lining which is actually a sign in itself.. im 21 weeks now good luck xx

She said thick lining like it was a bad thing? It was 15mm thick and I have it on the paperwork she gave me?!
You've given me much more of a positive attitude. I think I am far too early to see! Hopefully they can get me back in in a few weeks and check again x

By the way the lining thickens at the beginning of pregnancy to allow the embyro to burrow right in xx

Its bad if you werent pregnant it could be a sign of endometriosis as my tech told me( btw my tect wasnt scanning for pregnancy just scanning to ccheck all was ok) i think its safe to say you are pregnant especially with all those tests.. now your obviously still very early on and i dont want to worry you but you know urself things can go wrong, hope you have a sticky bean xx

I would say you are pregnant and the baby is in an awkward place to see or simply too small. They should have tried a vaginal scan maybe?

Yep just wanted you to know i relate to the scan because mine was thick with absolutely no baby in it.. oh and i booked for an internal scan the next day..after i tested and i went in and told the tech that i was actually pregnant and she said' ya you had a thick uterine lining which is what happens in early pregnancy it was just too early for us to see the sac '

she was the one who had put pregnancy into my head as after first scan she had askd me had i tested for pregnancy which I hadnt..

Oh and i had awful cramps when i first became pregnant and i mean awful!! so much I thought i was losing baby.. i rested up for a week took time off work and just relaxed.
So if you get any pains and that dont freak out k

My advice ha good luck xxxx

I had the exact same thing at 7 weeks, no baby could be seen. Was told it was prob a missed miscarriage. Had to wait 7 days and be re scanned. 7 days later we saw our babies heartbeat and measured right for dates. Just must have been hiding! 18 weeks now and everything seems fine so far.....

With my first pregnancy, I was less than 4 weeks along (Probably about a week or so after conception) when I had a sonar. Neither me nor the dr knew I was pregnant, the sonar was done for other reasons. The dr also noticed how thick the lining was.

Then, 10 days later, I had to repeat the sonar again, but this time we had bloodtests saying I'm pregnant, so when the dr couldn't see anything with the normal sonar, he did a transvaginal sonar. And there it was, a little sac measuring 5+4 weeks. So not even 6 weeks pregnant (less than 4 weeks after conception). He couldn't see anything with the normal sonar, and even with the transvaginal he could only see the sac, nothing inside. So again, 2 weeks later I had to go back, and this time we could see the bean (with heartbeat!!) at 7w3d. I was so worried all those weeks and for nothing. Everything turned out fabulous. Today, that little bean is a strapping 11-year old.
