    Hi,

    I had a scan last week and they estimated that I was 5 weeks, all that was seen was a sac and yok. Went again this week and there was a fetal pole, estimated at 5-6 weeks

    I had a scan at 5+3 and I didn't really see anything about but I did see a wee flicker which i was told by the doctor was a heartbeat! But I was really lucky to have witnessed that so early on! :)

    i cant spell it properly but a haematoma is a small sack filled with blood. I am sure this pregnancy will go well for you! x x

    I agree - to see a sac is good news. This early even an internal ultrasound is not always reliable - my EPAU have a policy of not scanning until 7 weeks for this reason. If you haven't had significant bleeding the best thing to do is hold out for a couple weeks and see what a scan shows. Not an easy thing to cope with though, believe me I know.
    Fingers crossed for you x

    A sack sounds perfect for 5+3! Are you going back for another one?

    Good luck 3boys, i heard of a few girls who had this sack of blood who said it was normal, as it gets reabsorbed or gets shed as spotting, shouldnt be a lot. x

    i just read online that when a sac of blood is seen your chances of mc are 50-50 so i think this is gonna be a very tough week! x x
