I went to the doctor yesterday for a confirmation of pregancy. I was just guessing that i was around 7 wks pregant but i wasn't quite sure. They did an internal ultrasound and their was only a sac and saw no baby. the sac was only measuring 5wks two days. should i be worried? I am just praying that i was off on my dates and that i am really only 5wks pregant. they did my blood work and my HCG levels were at 4,787. is it normal to just see a sac? I am freaking out and crying...

don't worry. I had the same thing. My first docs appt I measured a little over 4 weeks and there was only a sac...then the second week he had me come in again, and there was STILL only a sac. I was freaking out just like you. Finally on the third week, third u/s we saw our little baby. I just gave birth to him on Monday, healthy, strong baby boy. Just give it time that little baby will show up on that screen and it'll be a happy day.

I am not a Dr. but I am in the medical feild what I can advised you is to stay positive and I am a strong beleiver myself just pray. The other thing you might want to do is to not allow them to do a D&C you should just let God and nature take its course of action. I know how frustrating it can be but just try to be positive and I'm praying for you that there is nothing wrong. By the way are you seeing a fertility specialist? cause I might be able to refer you to someone that is really good what side are you in the US? I have a few that I know let me know how things are going with you and ...........God Bless

I am suppose to be 8 weeks 6 days today. we found out I was pregnant 3 weeks ago (in March 2012) and we had an u/s as I was suffering with cramps. This weekend March 30 - Ap 2 I experienced spotting and light bleeding. I we went for another u/s today and they told us there is a gestational sac and no fetus. He gave me a card for a gyno to have a d&c done. I pray your results turn out better then mine. Hugs its a scary frustrating thing to go through!

Try not to worry too much.. your dates could just be off by 2 weeks & if that's the case, your baby isn't big enough to see yet. Has your doctor scheduled you for another ultrasound in the next couple of weeks?

Yes, they scheduled another ultrasound for July 9th. So a little less then 2weeks. I am really nervous. The doctor said by then that we should definitely see something because if I'm 5wks and 2days I will be over 7 by then and should see something. It's going to be a long two weeks. I'm also goign back in on Monday to have my HCG levels tested again to make sure that my levels are increasing.. i'm praying they will since they were 4,787 yesterday. Isn't that pretty high to have a blighted ovum??

I just wanted to say best of luck with everything. I know on my transvaginal ultrasound at 6w 3d there was both an embryo and a sac visible, but apparently alot of women have trouble finding the baby. They say it's generally because the sac is so much larger that the baby is often hiding behind it. Just stay positive and hang in there until your ultrasound

The shape and location of the sac itself, and the presence of a yolksac are also important factors of a healthy early pregnancy. Usually when we see an empty sac once, we have the patient come in for a follow up within a week to 10 days. By then there usually should be a fetal pole and heart beat. A heart beat should be seen by 7 weeks most definately on vaginal ultrasound. Hopefully your dates were just a bit off causing for the empty sac. Good luck

Hi lasmiley,

Don't you worry. First of all, worrying doesn't help! You need lots of sleep and relaxation to keep that baby happy.

It's more likely that you're earlier in your pregnancy than you originally thought. I'd especially say this since your first blood test came out negative.

Don't forget, while the date of your last period is generally used for dating a pregnancy, it's not a very specific one. Every woman ovulates differently, and depending on a wide variety of environmental and biological factors, you may have ovulated later. That would mean you'd be just barely pregnant now.

Fret not. Wait for your ultrasound (it's pretty early even for that! I'm 8 weeks along and I was told my my doctor that an ultrasound before 9 weeks just won't show much -- and even at 9 weeks I'm just expecting a blob!) and I'm sure everything will be fine. Keep us updated, and we'll all be sending good thoughts your way.

To lasmiley:

It can't be an ectopic pregnancy if she saw the sac in your uterus. An ectopic is when the egg implants in the fallopian tube, so I'm not sure why she would say that.... I really wouldn't worry. You are early in your pregnancy. They couldn't see the embryo at my u/s until I was 6 weeks 3 days. It seems like you were just about 7 weeks when you had your u/s, so just give it time. Even if they can't see anything at your next u/s, it still may not mean anything. I've heard of it taking 9 weeks in some cases to see the embryo!

Kmiller25:

You could be pregnant. If you have regular cycles, March 7 or around then would have been a fertile time for you. The bleeding could be from implantation. Some women experience light spotting around the time the egg implants. I would get a blood test to determine for sure if you are or not. The home tests may be negative because you are so early that they can't detect the hormones yet. Good luck!

Yolksac and no baby
I was sick with the swine flu and also just a little over 7 1/2 weeks then I started to have brown discharge. I call the doctor they had me come in and they did an ultrasound buy them I was 8 weeks. There was no baby and just the sac and they told me that I would miscarry with in the next week or that I would just not as far as long as I thought. That was so hard for me the hear because we have been wanted one for so LONG. They also wanted to make sure and did all the blood work and check all the levels and they started to drop. I soon miscarry at 9 weeks. And also wanted to know how soon is it okay to start trying again? My doctor told me to wait at least 2 normal periods but I don't want to. I want to start trying asap for me to be pregnant will make me feel better so I am not sure what I should do?

I am pregnant, I went to the doctors today for my first ultra sound.. So the doctor did a vaginal ultrasound, and all we seen was a sac with no baby.. I didn't know what to say or do I was so scared at the time.. The doctor said that the sac could be around 6 weeks.. So the doctor did some blood tests and said he would get back to me.. I cant wait, I need to know whats going on and if everything is going to be okay... I am so stressed out now, I don't know what to do. Am I going to be okay? Is my baby going to be okay? I just need someone to help and tell me things will be okay..

no fetus in sac w/vaginal ultrasound
I am pregnant also and did 2 vaginal ultrasound today. The first was at the ER because I had minor spotting but I had been having cramping for a couple of days which I know is not abnormal and it was not really bad cramping. They did a pelvic exam at the ER and said that the spotting was just old blood and my cervix was closed. The gave me a vaginal ultrasound and she initially said that the fetus she saw was too small for the size of the sac approx 6 weeks. I told her that I only believe i'm 4 or 5 weeks because I know the day of conception and i have never had regular periods. The nurse told me that I was going to miscarry gave me some pain pills and to follow up with my doctor. I met with my regular doctor who wants me to do a d&C but I'm not comfortable with the diagnosis. I'm getting another opinion tomorrow and for now I'm trusting in God. Keep us in your prayers, you are all in mine.

I also had sac but no baby...it's called a blighted ovum
I will share my experience with you and wish you all luck and lots of baby dust. I went in for my 7 week ultrasound recently and there was a sac but no baby. They said it was a blighted ovum where the sac develops but the baby doesn't. Well, I didnt' believe it and went to the ER a few days later for a second opinion. There they took HCG level that were a wopping 32,000. Yeah super high. They saw the same thing on a second ultrasound sac but no baby. I was devastated but hopeful because of my levels. Well 3 days later went to check HCG levels again and they were dropping they were at 29,000. I was devastated cause I had been TTC #2 for over a year and a half. I opted to have a D&C despite my doctor's advice to miscarry naturally. I did this because one I wanted to get back to TTC, two the thought of having something dead inside you, not cool and third fear of getting an infection. I wish you ladies luck and hope it works out for you. I have read of people that can't see baby at first and a few weeks later they do...not my case but everyone's body is different. Oh and by the way I have a tiltled uterus which they say can hide the baby...not true.

Sac but no baby
I have had 3 positive tests. According to my LMP I should be a littl eover 5 weeks. I had a transvag U/S today and there is only a yolk sac but no baby. I have not had a blood test. The Dr is having me go back in 2 weeks for another U/S. I am scared and nervous, is this normal? If I go by the date I think I conceived I will only be about 3 weeks. I am praying that everything will be ok. The next 2 weeks will feel like forever Im sure.

I'd appreciate any/all advise. Thank you.
