Hi everyone

I had a scan on Friday last week I should have been 6 weeks and 2 days by lmp. There was a ges sac and yolk sac but no embryo or heartbeat 😢 has anyone else had this happen and had good news ? I could have ovulated a couple of days later so I'm not exact with my dates! I have a scan in the morning so I'm really hoping for some progression but not sure what to think. This pregnancy was very unexpected we have been tryifng for 3 years ended up having ivf in March a frozen transfer and then found out I had conceived naturally before the transfer 2 weeks ago!! Thanks in advance for anyone who replies to me ❤️

Didnt want to read and run, but ifjj no it helps I booked an early scan thinking I was 9 weeks, they dated me at 8 weeks which I just knew wasn’t right.

Then at my 12 week scan they moved me up 6 days back to pretty much my original dates I had.

I’ve heard this happens a lot when it’s really early as it’s so unpredictable at the rate growth this early on, and that’s why it’s better to get accurate dating at the 12 weeks scan smile X

Yeah, it’s pretty normal then, it’s too early for a scan really. I had a scan at 6w, the two sacs were visible and the right size but no heartbeat yet. Went back two weeks later and the heartbeat was there and strong. I’m 13 weeks now and all is good.

I honestly don’t think scans that early should be allowed, it just made it super stressful. But it was all okay for me, and I hope it is for you too flowers

Thank you both so much for replying! And your reassurance. I wouldn't normally have had a scan so early but my last pregnancy was ectopic so I had no choice! Fingers crossed all is okay tomorrow I have a feeling it could be another inconclusive scan as how much could it have changed since Friday!! X

I’m surprised you’re having another scan so soon - is it private? My initial scan was for bleeding during pregnancy - they wouldn’t scan me again for two weeks, they said not enough would have changed, and nowhere private would touch me when I explained either.

But logically speaking, the baby will be big enough to see and the heart will start beating at a specific time, so I suppose it’d technically be possible to have scans a day apart and be able to see them on one and not the other…

I’d prepare for it to be inconclusive again but I hope it’s not flowers some people are lucky enough to see the heartbeat at 7 weeks.

I hope everything works out for you but please prepare your feelings either way as I have unfortunately been on the negative side of this experience.

Takeyourfinalposition - yes it's private. I am massively hoping for some sort of progress but I guess only time will tell!

Chanelno5 - yes I am preparing I've already had an ectopic and blighted ovum previously. But I feel this is different as there is an actual yolk sac so I have if I'm being honest got my hopes up a little bit. What was your experience with early scan ?? X

So sorry to hear of this. I had an early scan due to bleeding with my daughter, that was nerve wrecking enough. Just wanted to wish you all the best, will have everything crossed for you that all is well
