I am estimated at 5-6 weeks. Probably 6. I had an ultrasound because we thought I was farther along. There was a sac but no heartbeat or embryo that the dr. could see. I'm scared now. And can't even think straight. I had a blood test done to check my HCG levels? But I don't know the results until SAt. Should I be concerned?

this is what happened to me today. I am 5 weeks and they couldnt see a fetal pole, the heartbeat you really cant even tell until you are 26 days anyway (from date of conception), i was really worried also but i was reading other forums and many other women have had this and they were ok. It is just to early to tell. My doc recommens coming in at 8 wks because by then you should be able to hear a strong heart beat as well as see the fetal pole. The radiologists also said that the fetal pole could be hiding in the back so the u/s would not be able to see it anyway. But dont stress and just pray. It is to early.

I am 6 weeks and two days... I went to the doctor yesterday and the doctor told me I was probably going to miscarry because there was no fetal heart beat. I am going again next week for another sonogram. He said there are slim chances the baby might have a heart beat then. I am relieved to know maybe the baby is a slow developer and things may be ok... (My son who is 3 had a heartbeat when I was 6 weeks so it really worried me not to see one this time)

that is exactly what happened to me today. My Dr. said it he was confident 70/30 everything should be fine , just to come back in 1 week and see. I am freaking out too !!

This happened to me today. The doctor and the nurse were really positive and I have an u/s scheduled next week. My advice to everyone going through the same thing, have faith and stay positive!

I am spotting/bleeding very lightly. I am 51/2 weeks pregnant and the doc has sent me for an ultrasound on Wed. which will be 6 weeks. I am afraid that this will be too early but I am going crazy with concern. I am resting in bed all the time. I am on vacation so I can right now. The spotting is just that....spotting. Does anyone have any advice? Do I postpone my ultasound or do I go and hope that it shows something?

I'm no expert, but I don't think any doctor can pick up a heart beat until at least 8 weeks pregnancy and even then they need a special instrument. So don't be concerned about that, it really is too soon. If you are 6 weeks pregnant keep in mind that the embryo will only be about 5mm long. I haven't had an ultrasound yet (mines booked in when I'm 8 weeks along) so I don't know if it can be magnified, but the embryo is really tiny and possibly can be over looked.

I am 6 weeks and 4 days. Yesterday I went to the hospital emergency room because I was severely cramping and I had to get an ultrasound and it showed exactly what my date should be to correspond with my lmp. I saw the heartbeat but with my first I never heard or saw the heartbeat until I was about 10 weeks along so all I could do was just believe that everything was fine and wait to see.
