    i went for my early re-assurance scan today and iv left feeling completely deflated and in tears! what was there measured 5 weeks, and he could see the yolk sack and thats about it, no heartbeat which i was aware might be the case, iv to go back in 2 weeks so we will know more then.

    i leave monday morning for a holiday abroad for a week and to tell the truth im now terrified something bad is going to happen when im away :-(

    why does this have to be so hard 2 begin with, i have previously had 2 mc before i had my son 2 years ago but this is something iv never experienced.

    i guess im just concerned as i have no symptoms and i have mild on/off cramping.

    does anyone have any advice or been here and the outcome been good?

    just feeling totally depressed now :-(

    I'm no expert but I thought they didn't expect a heartbeat till six weeks? Even then isn't it difficult to see?


    Hope all goes well for you.

    No advice, other than try to relax and enjoy your holiday - I know it's easy for me to say, but worrying isn't going to help :hugs:

    IMO they shouldn't do a reassurance scan at that date, it's too soon! I had one at 6+5 and you could barely see anything (let alone hear it), not seeing a heart beat at 5 weeks measured is 100% normal... sorry you are going through this, but please hold on for next time!

    How far along do you think you are?

    I went in at 5+4 (and I know my dates) and there was nothing but a gestational sac, not even a yolk, and I was devastated. I went back in 6 days later at 6+3 and there was a heartbeat but only measuring 5+4. I went in 2 days later at 6+5 and somehow it caught up and measured 6+5. It is very difficult in the beginning sometimes and in my case things obviously grew slowly at first. Also be aware that if you have a tilted uterus, things seem to measure behind a lot. Good luck and don't get too stressed until you get some answers at your next scan.

    i wasnt sure as this bubs wasnt planned, was a wee surprise, the dates could be right, i wouldnt have put myself at anymore than 6 weeks :-S

    im back on the 15th so im praying with all i have that il then measure 7 weeks and theres a heartbeat! im probably making a mountain out a mole hill its just not nice to see the wee blob with now movement, just hanging around and no heartbeat it makes u think the worst :-( also the fact that iv no symptoms to give me hope and this cramping feeling doesnt help!

    i just want someone to tell me everythings fine with bubs but i know thats impossable for any1 2 say :-S

    When I was pregnant with my baby boy we were told by the hospital that the heartbeat can't be seen until 8 weeks. I also had mild cramping when I was pregnant, it is probably stretching. Enjoy your holiday and try not to worry too much :hugs:

    I didn't see the HB at 5 weeks. Only a SMALL shadow of a yolk sac. Went back a week later, and there was the heart beating away! Don't worry about it. It's completely NORMAL!

    If you are only between 5 and 6 weeks you are fine!!!! I didn't even have a yolk sac at 5+4! And I had a vaginal ultrasound with a good machine. We don't have a crystal ball to see the future, but with the information you have, you are right on track. It also takes a very experienced technician to see something at that point. Do not worry, as it is way to early to be worried about that. These early scans are so stressful. I really with I hadn't had my first one because i spent a week accepting that I had a miscarriage when I really didnt. Stay positive!

    PS-
    Cramping is a symptom!!! It was my first clue that I was pregnant as I don't really get AF cramps! I saw my doc at 13 dpo when I got my positive, and he said to expect cramping and I am going to feel like AF is coming...and I still feel that way every day :p
