im new to this and after some advice and support please...
I went for an early private scan two weeks ago for reassurance at what I though was about 6 weeks based on my LMP. All they could see was an empty sac measuring 7mm. They didn't seem overly worried though and just said it was too early to see anything and to go back in two weeks.
So I went back yesterday and the sac had grown to 11.5mm but they still could not see anything and they put me at about 5.5 weeks instead of the 8 I thought I was! Again they said it's too early to see anything And he did say my dates could be wrong depending on implantation time etc.
Just wondered if anyone had any experience of this? I am gong out of my mind with worry!Could my dates really be that wrong?! We did fall pregnant in our 2nd month of ttc after coming off the pill so I guess my cycle could be all over the place but I am still v scared that this could mean the worst and that I'm not growing as I should be.
Any by advice and support greatly appreciated x

Hi hun dont mean to sound nasty but it doesnt look good.i have had this 2times the sac grows but no baby.its called a blited ovum.still feel pregnant etc but takes a while for your body to reconise the lose before you bleed.
I hope this isnt the case for u but just wanted u to be aware.make sure they scan again in a week.infection can set in if no baby.all the best xx

Hi Mrs182, when have you got your next scan booked?
It is a very positive sign that the sac has grown. Have you been getting symptoms of pregnancy? Unfortunately it is really hard to see anything on a scan until probably about 10 weeks. I've had an early scan at 4.5 weeks and 7 weeks and both didn't show anything much at all. Try not to worry too much. I know easier said than done. Heartbeats can only be detected from about 8 weeks as well so it really is so early to be able to tell anything. I also get pushed back about a week on my dates as I ovulate late. My friend was put back a whole month so must have had a very bizarre cycle. Try to stay positive. X

thanks for your replies...
Yep I'm still having symptoms so taking that as a positive sign and trying to stay upbeat.
I'm seeing the midwife in two weeks so will have a chance to talk through everything properly with her and ask for another scan.
ita just all the waiting that is so hard!

The waiting is always the hardest part. Symptoms are a very good sign. Cramps means growing so try not to worry about anything like that but if they become too severe or you start bleeding contact your midwife to get you booked in for another Early scan. Once you've had a chat with your midwife it will help as well. She can alleviate any worries you have. Good luck. X

Google lied to me!! Sorry for that, it said 8 so assumed it was right. I knew it wasn't straight away though. Good question about when you got your positive as well. That would be a good indication. I've not been through a blited ovum so mummyof6 is the best one for advice on that. X

That is a difficult experience to go through o had something similar last year, the same as mummy of 6 it was a blighted ovum where baby attaches but doesn't develop but the sac gets bigger and you still have strong, sometimes stronger pregnancy symptoms but this might not be what it is. How many days since your last period? Do you know roughly when you had intercourse as may be able to pinpoint when you conceived. It's never accurate going back to day of first period as often conceive a couple of weeks after that so dates would be wrong. I just went for a 5 week scan and although the could see the sac it's to early to see anything whst thru said was trying to see something inside something that was 2mm it's not easy. I would think about your dates, speak to your midwife and get another scan in around a week and take it from there, I wish you all the best.

Hi kekentj, I understand your concerns as thee is never any sigs anything is wrong with that type of miscarriage. Cramping is normal as your body is changing and stretching. If pain however because unbearable and is accompanied by bleeding then you would need to see someone

Thank you just scared.....took a test today is this positive it might be to early huh
15/04/2015 at 07:55
That's understandable to be scared kekentj. It's postive that it's came up early shows high level of hormones. Just keep an eye and if concerned speak to early pregnancy unit for some support

Took another test and the line is still faint...

It doesn't matter if it's faint as long as it's there. Mines were always faint
