My ultrasound

They couldn't see a baby. But they said it could be too early. I don't measure 8 weeks I measure 6 weeks. There was a yolk sag but couldn't see maybe in it yet. And she said there was some bleeding that can happen with the implant of the egg. So I got no pics.*

Is that normal for them not to see the baby? At 6 weeks? I'm confused Sad

((hugs)) I'd say with the uncertainty of your dates, it's possible. If you are actually right at or even not quite 6 weeks that may be all that is visible. Do you have any idea at all of your dates? I'm so sorry you are still in limbo. I know how hard it is Sad

Im guessing it depends on the u/s equipment also. I too have an apt the 8th!

6 weeks seems really early to see anything. Did they draw blood to check the numbers?

I am so sorry that you didn't get to see the baby. I hope that it is just a little early to see it. I know that would be a little scary though :bigarmhug:

I'm sorry you didn't get to see anything. It's so hard not knowing your dates.

Yes, it could just be too early. A lot depends on the sensitivity of the machine too. I'm just over 6 weeks and doc said he wants to wait until I come back from Japan to do an ultrasound check. He thought it would be too early to check for much right now. Hang in there!

Thanks girls. Just pray!!! I think I'm just too early to see the baby... What about hearing heart beats? We didn't get to hear it either. Too early for that too? Hmm.

Yes, if you can't yet see the baby on the machine it's also too early to see HB. I had an early US with DD since I was bleeding. Like you, they could only see the yolk sack. But a week later at another US they sdetected HB Smile Both of these were vaginal ultrasounds and my doc sent me to the hospital for them since the machine in the office wasn't as sensitive.

I would think so -- but again, a lot of it depends on the machine and whether they do internal or external scan.

Star, I'm sorry you didn't get to see baby... Sad Did they do an abdominal ultasound or trans vaginal? Sometimes it really does depend on the machine!

Been cramping a little. I guess that's normal.

They could see the baby when I went and they put me at 6 weeks 1 day (but Im positive based on my charting I am farhter along than that) and the tech seemed surprised that she coudl get the heartbeat...so I am guessing it was too early for the heartbeat! Try not to stress until you go back on the 8th!

Ugh, it can be so scary. I knew my dates and still got upset that they couldn't see a baby. Did they draw HCG to see if it correlates with what they saw? If you're earlier than you thought it would also make since that m/s hasn't hit yet. Hope you get great news on the 8th!! I'm a little jealous I have to wait for the 12th!
