I went for my first ultrasound last week at 6 wk 5days and only had empty sac. My Dr was not very optimistic this will be a healthy pregnancy. Anyone experienced this and had a healthy pregnancy? I've got one precious 2 (almost 3) year old little girl and have had 2 early miscarriages over the last year and a half. I'm hoping for good news at my next ultrasound this week but also preparing for the worse.

Kailey25, I was about 5wks also when I had y first sonagram. They saw a empty sac that was too big for the gestational age and mis shaped. I forget the name for it but my doctor figured that the baby was just never going to grow. I went and got blood work done and my hvg levels were high. So I waited it out and around 8 weeks, their was a baby in there, the sac was normal size and shape. I don't know what happened, but don't let them make you have a dnc just yet. wait it out and see if anything progresses. My pregnancy began this way with everyone thinking it wasn't going to happen and just 2 months ago I brought a beautiful baby boy into this world. I'm glad I waited it out. you can't see much this early on anyway. sometimes they make u worry for nothing. keep me updated on what you find out! :)

I have been reading everything I found out friday that I was pregnant with my 3rd kid and went for an u/s today and they said i was measuring 5 weeks and 2 days but there was nothing but a sack. She said the machine could be off or the baby isn't growing like it should.... I am worried to death.

I have really enjoy reading all these post. My baby daughter is pregnant and according to the health dept. She should be 8 weeks. So we went to the Dr.last Thursday. They did an ultra sound and found a sack that measures 5 and a half wks, but no fetal pole. We have been worried and I have a__sumed the worst. I see now there is hope that everything is ok. We go back on the 15th for the second ultra sound. They did inform us that if there is no fetal pole then well we have a problem. This has helped me a lot. I pray that each and everyone of you get the results that you want. May god be with each and everyone of you.

I went to the doctor's on 12/19/11 and received a positive pregnancy test. Two days later, on 12/21/11 I went to the ER due to bleeding. They gave me an US and said I was 5 weeks pregnant. They also printed out two US pictures showing the yolk sac, yet no embryonic pole. I went to my first ob appt. on 1/12/12 and they gave me another pregnancy test and it was negavtive. They told me I had a miscarriage, but I am still having pregnancy symptoms. I wake up in the mornings with nausea, I have frequent headaches, and I am cravings things I wouldn't normally eat. Also, I have been feeling a pulse and/or heartbeat in my stomach - and I have NEVER before felt this. What should I do? My fiance' and I both think I am still pregnant. I am really confused! Any advice?

Krisceetown: I am sorry sweety but if they did a blood test and it came out negative than you probably did miscarry. Buy another take home test and take it yourself, sometimes they do make mistakes, but the blood test counts the HCG level which tells you if the baby is growing. The symptoms may be real, that is normal when you have already experienced them and your hormones may still be all out of whack from the pregnancy. Also, you would not be able to feel the babys heartbeat at this point, what you would be feeling is your own. You would not even be able to find it with a doppler until at least 9-12 weeks. My best advice is to get the test retaken and if it is negative you can try again. Its easier to get preganant right after you miscarry or deliver since the hormones are still elevated. Good luck to you and hope it works out

I just wanted to thank you all for sharing your experiences. I went for a V/U yesterday at 5 weeks 3 days. They found a sac but no yolk. They said I have to come back in 2 weeks. I am a little more optimistic after reading some of the experiences here.

hello all, I found out i was pregnant on 1/23. i have gone in for 2 u/s now both showing Sac with no yolk or embryo. my u/s tech is very negative. This is my 12th pregnancy with just one living child. My doctor has scheduled me for yet another u/s next week. first ultra sound measured about 6 weeks. so i should be 7 weeks now and still no yolk. The sac doubled in size over the last week. Starting to freak out a little. I have a very rare blood disorder called antiphospholipid antibody body syndrome. so i have to take blood thinners to stay pregnant. I am having all the symptoms of pregnancy with no cramping or bleeding. It is a hard road. Stay positive and know that just to get pregnant is a miracle. I will keep you all posted on how it goes next week. I will get a second opinion before i schedule a d&c.

ok after reading all of ur stories i know there is hope here is my storie im 29yrs old have had 8 miscarriages in the past and am now pregnant again according to lmp should be 7 wks 4 days had first u/s on feb 6 2012 and they said 5 wks and only a sac no yolk no fetal pole..still to early, here is what they dont tell you every persons cycle is different conception date and ovulation the doctors use a standard mathmatical system to determine how far along you are from your lmp not necessarily accurate. i am going for another u/s in 2 wks to check the progress i have had light spotting throughout this pregnancy and am taking the progesterone treatment as well. my hcg levels are rising on feb 2 8557 and on feb 6 12998 we will find out this afternoon what yesterdays numbers were. so stay positive i know its hard as its all that is on ur mind im with ya on that one and remember docctors are not miracle workers they dont always have the answer and dont always have the answer u want. i know from experience that if ur hcg levels are rising there is always hope and it is hard to not worry but try not to.i will post more as i know it to keep everyone updated,,, anxiously waiting for good news
