    5 weeks and a few days (check my sig for exact I cant think right now)...

    Had a smear of red blood 2 days ago and brown spotting since.

    Went in for scan today, there was a sac in my uterus and a 5mm fetal pole but no heartbeat. They also said that sac looked irregular so it could be breaking down.

    At 5mm you are supposed to see the heart. 5mm seems a bit big for the stage I am at... but still...

    Anyway, good luck to the rest of you and I hope this doesn't happen to anyone else.

    Alot of women wont see a heartbeat until 6 weeks, dont give up hope! the fact you have a sac and fetal pole is good at your stage...you might even be earlir than you thought.
    Take it easy, take care of yourself and try not to stress too much.
    Im praying its not the end for you xx

    They said the sac looked irregular which could indicate that it's breaking down...

    I'm measuring around the same stage as you 5-6 weeks (although by dates I should be 7-8 weeks), at my scan on Thursday, and fetal pole was 3mm, so 5mm is not that much bigger. Not too sure about the irregular shape, but as there are so many changes at this stage try not to worry and all the best for the next 10 days, and I hope when you go back for your scan everything is on track!
