No yolk sac at 6 weeks 3 days?

I had an u/s today. I am supposed to be 6 weeks 3 days. They couldn't see anything but the gestational sac. there was MAYBE something, she said it might be a yolk sac but couldn't tell for sure, she couldn't get a good view. The gestational sac was measuring "right under 6 weeks" according to the doctor, but even at that, a yolk sac should be seen right? I was expecting to see a little baby and didn't see anything but a sac It almost looked like something was flickering, she even said that, but it was way down in the corner and couldn't really see it. So I don't know what to think. I go back in 2 weeks, but she gave me a little pamphlet on miscarriage.

The couldn't find my cousin's baby's yolk sac at that age, she was spotting and they told her she was miscarrying. The spotting decreased and a week later they found a heartbeat! She gave birth to the baby day before yesterday-sometimes the u/s doesn't show what it should, but things can be okay.

It might still just be to early. That is very early to be having an u/s (going from experience and what I have heard from others). I would still brace yourself a little in case you do miscarry. Btdt and I really hope this isn't the case.

Did they do your U/S trans vag, or tran abdominal? And how full was your bladder?

It sounds like your baby may have implanted super low.

I'm with PP - still very early. A lot depends on the machine (they vary widely; I've read articles that say there's little to no standardization for the things) and the skill of the person reading it. Also, if you had a late implanter you might read as a bit behind. It's not over until it's over!

Can you get beta draws done and see if they're doubling? That might give you some peace of mind before the next scan...

I've never had a u/s that early cuz my ob said it's to unlikely to see anything. The earliest was either 8 or 9 weeks. Hold on to some hope that it's still just to early. Especially if your off a few days or the baby implanted late... you just never know for sure. Hope your next u/s shows a healthy little bean

Re: No yolk sac at 6 weeks 3 days?

I always read about ultrasounds between six and ten weeks but none of the doctors that I or my friends/family have seen do ultrasounds that early so I really have no experience with that.

I would say it's VERY early...six weeks is only four weeks after conception and the baby would be significantly smaller than a pencil eraser. Give it time
