Yolk Sac No Fetus

HopefullyDevoted - October 31

My LMP was Sept 12th. I went travelling overseas on Sept 30th. I conceived sometime after 28th (didn't have s_x b/w the 12th and the 28th). I had s_x every other day until about October 7th. When I got back from my trip, I didn't get my period (due around the 12th of October). I went to my doctor on October 19th who did a blood test. He said that the results of my HGC blood test said that I had signs of very early pregnancy (he didn't tell me the amount of HGC but said it was very low). A few days ago, I started to get brown spotting and my doctor sent me for a va___al u/s. The results show the yolk sac but no fetus. Technically, I am 7 weeks (today) from my LMP and so the fetus should have been seen she said. The doctor wants me to come back in 5 days to see if she can detect the fetus on another u/s. She said it's a good sign that I have the yolk sac and thinks maybe my travelling screwed up my cycle and I'm not actually 7 weeks along? I am also nauseous all the time which is another good sign she said. BUT, maybe she's just being "optimistic". I am scared sick over this -- no fetus to me at what is supposed to be 7 weeks isn't a good sign. Does anyone have experience travelling overseas, getting pregnant, but having the conception date off b/c of jetlag? I know this might be a far fetch idea, but while the calendar says I should be 7 weeks, maybe I'm less than that?!?!

It's possible. Dating from the LMP a__sumes that you ovulate 14 days after the start of your lmp. So if you didn't have s_x before the 28th, that's at least day 16, who knows maybe a lot longer - that could throw out the measurements by a week. With my first pregnancy I had an ultrasound at 6 weeks which showed the sac but no fetal pole. He's 2 now so obviously everything was fine. So if you are actually only around 6 weeks because of ovulating late, then your results could be completely normal. Try not to worry too much, you should know for sure on next ultrasound. Did she take any blood tests to make sure your hcg is rising?

Thanks so much! She is going to repeat the blood test on Monday when I go back for the u/s....
