I had a mc last year at 17 weeks so when i found out i was preg this time i went to doc and pushed for an epc app. i went 2 weeks ago and instead of being 10 and half weeks they advised that i was only 6 weeks and staff nurse measured said she could maybe see a wee flicker which would be the heartbeat, however asked me to come back so i did that on friday past. diff nurse not nice at all did another internal scan no meausrements said that there had been no growth in a week and could not confirm heartbeat. when scanning was silent which just made me panic, she did not measurements said come in a week we have to give the benefit of the doubt at this stage. she said it may not develop into anything ??? nice bedside manner eh

so to say i am worried is an understatment then on the way out the door she said u do understand what i am saying dont you ? i felt like screaming at her YES I DO.

So i have to wait another week with my head all over the place luckily i have informed my employer because of what happened last time.

i still feel pregnant and infact was off sick with work due to how bad the sickness was last week.

any advice would be greatly appreciated !

Morning Wonderif - can understand that you must be feeling dreadful. So sorry that you had such an unfeeling person - they see so many people that I think they forget how much this means to us all. I have my fingers crossed for you. Think you did the right thing telling work so at least you can have a bit of space - hope they are being supportive. Don't forget if you are only 6 weeks it will be difficult for them to 'find' the heartbeat as baby is soo tiny - may well have been hiding from Grotbags!!!! keep us posted! xxx

I had a scan at 6w and had a sonographer like yours. She was pretty harsh in telling me I was only 4w (not possible) and sac was empty so probably not viable etc. A week later we had a scan that said I was 7w (as I thought) and it is twins.

I hope all works out for you, early scans are not always very reassuring I'm afraid. x

Cant imagine how you must be feeling, but i did have a scan at 6weeks with my DS amd it took a while for them to pick him up on the scan.
We did manage to find him and could make out the little flicker which was the heartbeat (only just tho)!!
FX that everything will be okay xxx

well i went to the gp today and they did bloods and want me to come back on wed to ensure that that the hormone level is doubling fingers crossed anyway.

also got some tabs to ease the sickness which she thinks is a good sign .

thanks for advice will keep posted x
