OK real quickie girls...

My friend is here and her SIL is pregnant, the SIL is a nurse and she was working nights and got the OBs reg do a scan.

He said I am really C**p at these, but I cant find anything.

She did a preg test the next day and it was still positive.

Question is could she still be giving off positive readings if the embryo had failed to implant correctly or continue to thrive ???

You do still get positive pregnancy tests if you have miscarried, or if the embryo's failed to implant. But of course it's entirely possible that the OBs reg was really really bad at scans, and yeah, they generally can't see anything at all before 7 or so weeks, even really experienced scanners.

If she's worried, she should call her EPU, they're normally happy to do a quick scan.

That is what we are worried about, but just rang BF and the SIL is absolutely sure of her dates.

Fingers crossed, will let you know.
