Dating Scan

(6 Posts)

I have just returned from a dating scan (I thought I was 8 weeks) and they said they could not find a heartbeat but could see a sack and yolk. According to the size she thought I was 5 - 6 weeks, and I have to wait for another 2 weeks to see if it is a viable pregnancy. I have had no spotting or bleeding and although I have not been sick, have been very tired. I will go out of my mind waiting for 2 weeks. Is this normal to be so far out on dates when I do have regular periods? I feel very sad that it does not look good.

im no doctor or anything but try not to worry to much. if you get any bleeding or anything get to you a&e straight away or call your GP. they will prob send you straight to hospital anyway. my first scan was 6 weeks and you could see the sack but no heart beat i have a pic of 8 weeks which is very small blob kinda. 8 weeks they will have a better feeling. the wait will be horrible. speak to your dr or midwife if you can't face work.

i was bleeding from like 4 weeks. so had many scans. my first at 6 weeks you could not see the heart beat. its a scary scary world out there. but i hope this has helped a little bit.

keep your head held high, my hubby was very supportive with it and i found this site very very helpful when i have any problems.

thank you so much Stareyes. That does make me feel so much better. My hubby is telling me that i have never really been good at maths anyway!

you could have miss interprited the end or start of you period. if you get my meaning. plus things like stress can effect it.

i know from experience that you never belive the ppl close to you as you think they may be trying to just make you feel better but i have nothing to gain you don't know who i am or anything about me so i have no reason to lie. my husband kept saying i know it will be fine and it wound me up more than ever. lol. always around if you need anything just post.

I really wouldn't stress. With my DS (now 2 and perfectly healthy) I went for a scan where all they could see was the sac when I could have sworn I was further along. In fact, the lady who did the scan said it probably wasn't a viable pg but it was utter horlicks. i went for a private scan the next week and they saw the heartbeat and everything, I was just bad at maths too!
