Re: Had ultrasound at 5 weeks 6 days and just saw a sac.So scared this will turn out

Yeah, I'm not sure who told you they saw a HB at 5w4d but that's like almost physically impossible! I had an early u/s at 6w1d and they told me I may not even be able to see a HB at all. I was able to, but the Peri's office said 6wks is the earliest you can see it. I've also had an u/s prior to 6wks and there wasn't a HB, only a yolk sac w/ an empty sac, not very reassuring to a mommy-to-be but honestly, that's all there is. I went in for hcg counts after that for almost 2wks b/c they didn't want to do an u/s until after 6wks when they would definatly see a HB. I had a planned vacation that entire 6th week so I had to wait until we got back at 7w3d and we saw it very clearly when we did!
Try not to stress, I know it's hard when you've had such a high-risk pregnancy in the past, but calm down mama!!!

Re: Had ultrasound at 5 weeks 6 days and just saw a sac.So scared this will turn out

Nope, I did see a heartbeat at 5wks, 6 days and have the ultrasound to prove it! I was also able to see the line that divides the two hemispheres of the baby's brain at 9 weeks, pretty amazing stuff. But all of this followed losing my first dd to a fatal brain defect. I think seeing all of that stuff so early was just God's way of reassuring me that everything was going to be okay with that dd.

But, as I said in my earlier post, I think the norm is seeing the heartbeat later, as I did with this pregnancy, so I would try not to stress about it; even though I totally understand your sensitivity.

Re: Had ultrasound at 5 weeks 6 days and just saw a sac.So scared this will turn out

Thanks ladies. I scheduled another appt for tomorrow to help reassure me. I just want to know the sac is growing and the little bean is in there. I read so much about blighted ovums and it just totally freaked me out. I wanted to see atleast a little something in there to show me that it wasnt just a sac but that there was in fact a bean in there. I am going to try and relax. So long as I still feel like upchucking them I know stuff should be ok. I will update tomorrow

I had an US at 5 weeks some odd number of days and all I saw was a sac. Nothing else. I was freaked. Two weeks later I had another US and they saw triplets.

I hope everthing works out great!

They'll do another ultrasound for you? How great! I think you'll be okay, but keep going back if it makes you less anxious! Good luck and keep us posted.

positive thought mama, positive thoughts. Stressing about it certainly won't help you or this pregnancy.

Re: Had ultrasound at 5 weeks 6 days and just saw a sac.So scared this will turn out

i went for a u/s at around 4w and they only saw a thickened uterine lining, no sac, no HB, no baby, nothing. Went back 1 w later and i was measuring 5w6d and there was a sac, baby, and HB. Dont worry- anything is possible

heres my u/s pic at 5w6d: (may 8th 2007)
