Ultrasound found sac but no baby

I had my first doc appt today, I should be around 9 weeks tomorrow. they did an ultrasound and found the sac but no baby yet, they told me to come back next week to see if they can see it by then. I'm so sad, has this happened to anyone? they said if they don't see Anthony by next week it's an impending miscarriage. anyone?

Maybe you're not 9 weeks pregnant. You may be less than that. Remember, when you're at the doctors and they tell you you're pregnant, they only give you an estimate of how many weeks pregnant you are. You may just be measuring smaller.

And it's also odd that you'd get an ultrasound at 9 weeks pregnant. They usually do it at 12 weeks - at the end of your first trimester. I'd request that.

i know how your feeling like the worlds coming down on you.
im 6 weeks and 4 days pregnant i had an ultrasounds yesterday and they saw the sac and no baby either . i was sooooooooooooo devastated because in january i had to get a D and C. I have to go back in 2 weeks hopefully my baby is seen.
Try not to worry and think positive i know it hard but its the best thing for your baby. keep me updated.

Sac but no baby
If there is a sac but no baby it is called a blighted ovum, I went for my 12 weeks scan last week to be told the same thing. It is my first pregnancy and myself and my partner are devastated. However I have read stories about this being misdiagnosed. I have so far been refused a second scan but am not just gonna get a D&C until all the details have been shown to me and I feel satisfied that my baby really stopped developing 5 weeks ago without me having and signs or symptoms of miscarriage at all. Good luck to you all xx
