I had my u/s done on Friday(Apr 29) and the results came back today. The doctor said my gest sac measured out to be about 6 weeks and there is a yolk sac, but no fetal pole. I'm very scared because this would be our 2nd m/c. I'm just wondering if anyone else has had this happen and go in for another u/s and there be the fetal pole? I have another u/s scheduled for next wednesday, so we'll see. Any advice would be helpful. The doctor said that it also could be too early to tell because sometimes measuring the sac isn't the most accurate way of telling how many weeks. Thanks for any help!!

I'm sorry, I don't know what that is. Is it the umbilical cord? Could it be that the yolk sac is hiding it?

early scans are horrible. we went early to check it was not another ectopic and there was no fetal pole, i just felt terrified looking at the blank screen. they really should prepare people better about what to expect. dont worry, just means it is too small to register, think how grainy the scan screen is, they are looking for such a tiny thing. you will probably find they will knock your dates back on the next scan too. all perfectly normal
