    So I went to the hospital yesterday as I was experering pains and they decided to do a scan, now I've never had a scan at this early stage before so didn't knw what to see and still don't knw, but all there was a sac :/.
    I have no idea if this is normal and now I'm really scared that no baby will be there :'(. I have to go back in 2 weeks.
    On the letter they gave me it says- intrauterine pregnancy of uncertain viabilty :'(
    Someone help please?

    That means its in the right place and they haven't seen the hb yet - you wont see this till about 6+ weeks (some places wont even look for it until 8 weeks).

    At 4 weeks all you would expect to see was the sac, until about 5.6-7 weeks when you would see a little bean. did they mention a yolk sac too?

    Try not to worry :hugs:

    At 4 weeks, they saw exactly what they are supposed to see. Sounds good!

    I had the same situation! Turns out it was a cyst that was giving me the pain, but with regards to the scan i had to wait to weeks too. I was sooo stressed i didn't sleep the night before, but as clear as anything there was the heartbeat and everything was fine. Try not to worry too much, i'm sure everything will be fine! xxx

    I had a scan at 5 weeks and there was only a sac, had another one thie Sunday and there was a heartbeat too, 4 weeks is too early for a heartbeat, so keep your hopes up, it all sounds normal! although i dont see why they have to scan so early, sometimes they just scare people for no reason. Best of luck! :)

    I had a scan at 5 weeks 5 days that only showed a sac....no yolk sac or anything. At 6 weeks 3 days I had a high risk scan that showed baby, yolk sac, and heartbeat. It's way too early at 4 weeks to see anything! Try not to worry!!!!

    I had a scan at 4 weeks 4 days with this current pregnancy and they saw NOTHING, not even a sac. I'm currently 7 weeks and doing fine (fingers crossed). I had a lot of pain early on and that is why they did the early scan. They said at 4 weeks, it's perfectly normal to see nothing and not to worry, as that is what they expected to see (nothing). I have another scan at 8 weeks and hope to see a baby with a heartbeat!

    Try not to worry yourself (I know, easier said than done) but 4 weeks is WAAAAAAY too early to see anything. You likely won't see a heartbeat until 6+ weeks.
