Sac But No Baby

EMMABABY - February 6

Hello ladies :) I am sooo worried! I had an early ultrasound yesterday at which time I should have been 6w 6d according to my LMP! The doctor found the sac and it looks good but no baby inside!!! She said I'm measuring 5w 3d (yesterday). She said it's possible to be off on dates. I'm so scared and praying to God that everything is ok, but it's so hard to remain optomistic. I'm going to have another ultrasound in 2 weeks. She said 5w can be early to see the baby. Has anyone experienced something similar? Wrong dates...etc? Please be honest.. thanks so much :)

EMMABABY: This is quite common actually. This happened to me as well and the last ultrasound I saw the baby and it's heartbeat 2 weeks later. As long as they saw the sac and it was a good shape and everything that is the most important thing at this point. My experience was I went in at 6w2d and the sac was there but only measuring at 4 weeks...and then the next time I went in 2 weeks later at 8w2d saw the baby measuring at about 7w and with hb of 120 so just try not to worry until the next u/s because I know that I did and it all turned out completely fine, I a__sure you this happens a lot as I learned from reading this forum. Usually they just don't do u/s that early unless your high risk or have problems...I had bleeding which is why they did it on me.

I went through the same thing yesterday! My LMP started on Dec. 4th. I was suppossed to be about 7weeks. I had an ultra sound yesterday and all we saw was a sac as well! I was sooo scared. My doc said I'm between 4-6 weeks according to the ultra sound, and I have to go back in 3 weeks for another.

Hey Emmababy and cutestpregnantwoman, did you guys have an internal u/s? I had an abdominal one and saw nothing too. I was supposed to be 6w and change and it measured 4w6d.... very OFF on the dates. I was worried sick, but I am now 8 weeks and going in to see the doc again on monday. I'll keep you posted on that. I think it is fairly normal when the sono is taken so early. I don't even know why they do this to us!! With my first I had a different OB and she didn't even want to see me until 8 weeks, and at that point she did an internal u/s and the baby, the sac and heartbeat were all present. I was left really confused and scared this time around so I understand you guys. Keep us posted though and good luck.

Thanks ladies so much. It's so great hearing that others went through this and all turned out well. I'm praying to God that my results will be positive also. I'm trying so hard to remain positive. I'm not letting myself venture anywhere outside of this forum as it's so easy to come across so many negative things. I go in to see the doctor for what should be my prenatal this Thursday and I will keep you ladies informed on what's going on. BELLASMOM and others, keep us informed..and I wish you all the best of luck :)

I haven't experienced this, but can tell you that it is very common to be off on dates...It is possible that you ovulated a bit later than you thought, or you could have had a late implantation which would throw your dates off. Try not to worry too much about it, there are many woman whose dates are off by up to 2 weeks and go on to have healthy baby's

HI WITH MY LAST CHILD I SCREWED UP THE DATES AND YES FIVE WEEKS IS TOO EARLY, A GOOD LOOKING SAC IS GOOD NEWS. DON'T WORRY. I HAD A M/C IN AUGUST AND NOW I AM 7 WKS, DON'T STRESS YOURSELF IT'S NOT GOOD FOR THE BABY.

Thanks again :) I'm definitely doing my very best not to even let myself think anything negative!!!! I've never really known when I ovulate, so I guess the standard 14th day ovulation doesn't necessarily apply to all of us LOL

Dont worry sweetie!! my lmp was 11-13-2006. I went in at what should have been 6 weeks and there was only a sac. turns out I ovulated late and instead of being due 8-21, i am due 9-2. But that sac turned into a pefect little bean with a 170 bpm heart ratej!

At this point I don't even know how far along I am. Based on my last period....I should be at 6 wks. I went in for an u/s yesterday and the doctor saw nothing, no egg, no sac, no nothing. I have had 2 miscarriages in the past, therefore I am terrified.I am thinking I may have gotten pregnant after I ovulated (at least that is what I am hoping for!) my HCG count was at 457 and I know that is low. I go in again tomorrow for more bloodwork and then again monday for another u/s. I would really hate to have to go through another miscarriage again. Has this happened to anyone?
