Hello I would really love to hear from any one who is going through some thing similar to me. I found out I was pregnant, super happy as it would be my forth and last pregnancy. Went along to my midwife appointment but night before I had some light bleeding and was told I was around eight weeks. Midwife sent me to EPU for a scan and scan showed I was only five and a half weeks but could See the sack and a yolk and was probably implantation bleeding. Was told
To come back for another scan to hopefully see progression and I was devistated to hear the sack had grown but could see a baby in and there was bleeding around the sack. I was then told I may need a D&C or tablet but to go home And prepare for a miscarriage. I was also told to come
Back in a week for another scan😳😳😳 I am still in complete shock and completely devistated this week will feel like the longest week of my life
Any advise or similar stories would be ever so much appreciated

Fingers crossed you just have your dates/ovulation off flowers

If you were under 6 weeks nothing would be visible (I recently started a thread in Pregnancy about my own panic with this which had good advice on it) smile

How sure of your dates are you? If you are 5 1/2 weeks as scan suggests, it's very early to see much, if anything.
Fingers crossed for you, I know the wait is hard

Currently 34 weeks pregnant, I had an early scan at I estimated to be around 7 weeks pregnant as I had bleeding, there was a sac, but no fetal pole so they estimated I was more closer to 5 weeks pg and you could see the bleed, I was also told they couldn't tell whether my pregnancy would progress or not, and to go back for a scan 2 weeks later, 2 weeks later I went and there was a baby, with a heartbeat and at my 12 weeks scan later on, my actual dates were correct not the first scan dates - I was told some embryos develop at different speeds. The bleed was visible until my 20 weeks scan, but here I am in the final countdown now.

Hope this eases your mind a little smile xx
