Looking for some similar stories or any helpful advice. I found out I was pregnant one week ago. I am over the moon happy because my s/o and I have been trying for 2 years. My first obgyn appointment isn't until May 18th & it's worrying me to death. Last night I was cramping & had a very little amount of spotting. It was light pink - almost clear - but definitely pink. I went to the ER today and they did a vaginal ultrasound. All they saw was the yolk sac. The doctor said I was definitely pregnant but she couldn't see a baby yet & that I was measuring around 5- 5 1/2 week. The doctor and nurse sidnt act concerned and told me not to worry until my appointment on 5/18 because they should be able to pick up a baby by then. Not worrying is easier said that done. I am so worried. This is my first pregnancy and I want this baby More than anything. Please help!

I experienced exactly the same thing - a transvaginal ultrasound at 5 weeks showing only a yolk sac - and I now have a happy healthy 3.5 year old to show for it. Best of luck to you!

I had the same thing had a vaginal scan and could only see sac, went back 2 weeks later and little baby with heartbeat was there I'm now 24 weeks pregnant :) it's perfectly normal for them only to see that at that stage. I know how u feel I was so worried and thinking the worst but everything was fine xx

I thought I was 12weeks exactly and had my 12 week scan 1 Nov which I thought 12 weeks exactly. I couldn't remember the exact date of my period but I have a ovulation calculator on my phone and the last date I entered was the 9th August so I went by that.
Anyways I went for my scan & sonographer said it was difficult to see an thing to go bk out and drink more water which I did. Went back in same thing happened so I opted for a internal scan instead. This time she asked am I sure I'm 12 weeks as from measurements of sac and yolk I was only 7 weeks 4 days.. This completely threw me she then asked me to wait in a room where a midwife came to see me she asked me to go bk a week later for rescan in epu to see if anything has grown or it could be a miscarriage so now I'm broken.. I recently had a miscarriage 12 Feb this year and now this the waiting is agonising.
I've had period pains inside out since scans and last nite started to have light red goo as I whipped this morning some spotting but really strong pains I no that I'm more than likely miscarrying, I'm praying that this isn't the case and for the next week there's no big bleed and when I go bk I see baby's heart beat.
Still thinking if my dates were correct then that means baby stopped growing 5 weeks ago why has it taken so long for bleeding to happen? Or if I was wrong & the measements are right why am I bleeding and in pain since having the internal and external scans?
Phoned hospital last nite cause bleeding there world's nothing they can do just monitor at home.
Anyone been tgrew simular experience please.
Sorry for going on x

Becca, if you had an internal scan this can sometimes cause a little bleeding - usually as a result of irritating your cervix etc. I hope you are ok, and everything turns out for the best next week x
