Hi i am 5 weeks pregnant and really worried. I have no symptoms at all and had a missed miscarriage in February where at our first scan at 12 weeks there was only a empty sack. I can't get hold of my midwife and the fetal unit I was at last time have they won't scan at 5 weeks because there is nothing to see
Am I just over worrying or should I push for a scan and how?

I know how you feel I have had 3 mmc's and 1 natural, im also very lucky as I have 3 beautiful daughter's. Because I haven't had 3 mc's In a row im not given an early scan by the nhs so have to pay private. I always wait till 7 + WEEKS to have a scan as I don't want an internal. I would try your luck at your gp and epu and if nothing from them go private as the peace of mind is priceless.
Im also 5 weeks and don't have any symptoms yet so try not to worry about that as its still early days x

I had a scan at 5 weeks with my son due to bleeding and then again at 7 weeks, at the 5 week one u couldnt see much but at the 7 week one u could see a heart beat
I had a m/c july 2013 and i had also had scans at 5 and 7 weeks with that pregnancy but sadly it didnt help.
I would say try not to worry stay calm with my son i had no symptoms till i hit 10 weeks x

Thanks ladies. It's made me feel better. Think I am only worrying because last time I had next to no symptoms and it didn't last and also because everyone seems to have all these symptoms and I just don't feel any different. At least last time my boobs were soon. This time nothing. X

l felt fine last week and was also worried however last few days feel awful like I did in my last pregnancy and retching in the morning with nausea day and night. I'm 6 weeks and 3 days.
Hope you get early scan but try not too worry xx

No where will give me a early one so might as wait until 8 weeks and get one privately as parents in law have offered to pay. I'm just scared that we will wait til then and not be okay and only find out then instead of like now. Only because last time we go to twelve week scan before we found out x

i had 2 miscarriaged one missed around 11 weeks nearly so i got a scan at 4-5 weeks and was just a sac from 6 weeks can see a tiny dot sometimes a heartbeat from 8 week so could get one but dont see much hun xx

Thanks everyone I think I am just going try and hold out til 8 weeks and try not to worry. Someone at the fetal unit page most miscarriages happen before 8 weeks. So ifI get there I suppose I have a good chance x
Just need time to speed up bit. It's my birthday next Wednesday so hopefully that will help time go bit quicker x

Aww bless you messy, I know how scary it is, I've had bad things happen in the past too. I would definitely ask the gp or mw for a scan, both of mine said yes to me, it's so weird how the criteria is so different in different places cos at the end of the day we all bloody petrified and need some reassurance. If its a no go then luckily your inlaws will come to the rescue. I had my scan last week as you know and I was 7+1 then and we saw a heartbeat and the yolk sac. Symptom wise mine have been completely different to my other experiences which has worried me too, this time I'm totally shattered, my boobs are massive and the nausea and awful taste and my mouth came on last week. Good luck, thinking of you xxx oh and happy birthday xxx

Aww thanks for your support. I am going to try after I am six weeks and just explain that I am going out of my mind with worry. So please scan me to give me some reassurance. Going to try them next week because I will be six weeks and they can't get rid of me by saying I won't see anything.

Good luck Messy! In a way im glad that im not in the UK during these early weeks as i see alot of people are being told there is nothing to see so early on, Im in Turkey at the moment and was given a scan at 6+1 where i could see my bean and heartbeat it put my mind right at ease. We are going tomorrow morning again for some bloods and a scan as i was bleeding a bit at the weekend which has totally freaked me out just hoping it was due to the erm 'exercise' we were doing but want to put my mind at ease also be nice for my OH to see the little bean too as last time i went without him! x

Aww messy, honestly a lot of us really understand, I agree, they can't fob you off. Don't go on your own though.
mavi, omg, the same happened to me on Friday and I was a total wreck. We did some exercise a couple of days before and then on Friday when I wiped I had a funny coloured discharge, sorry tmi. I was so worried and my partner was going to work so had to leave me, he was worried, it was a nightmare. we decided to see what happened and touch wood I haven't had any more since. We're a bit scared to exercise now but did again yesterday. if it happens again hopefully I can put it down to love juice if you know what I mean...god it's a bit embarrassing all of this isn't it? I did read that exercise can make you bleed so fingers crossed all will be ok for you tomorrow xxx

Thanks SoHappy! Everything was ok! Was a bit wary of doing it again but did last night and all was fine, think we will just have to watch what positions we are getting into from now on! I know what you mean about its all embarrassing Ive 2 friends due in the next couple of months and they are like oh anything you want to ask no matter how gross you think it is just ask away, at least one here no one knows you but are still able to offer support and info! x

I am hoping to get a scan next Wednesday when I will be 6+3. I called doctors yesterday and they spoke to the early pregnancy unit who said he would not see anything till then so no point scanning as it would not reassure me. If they will not give me one for some reason I now have a private scan booked for 10th of August when I will be 7+6. Fingers crossed all is okay.
know what you ladies mean about doing the exercise. That's when I started bleeding last time. Only to find out that the worst had already happened.
Sticky beans to all of us please.
