Hi all, new to Mumsnet but I literally have no one to talk to! I went for an early scan today. My periods are a bit irregular, not massively tbh just 27 days, 24days, 28 days, 29 etc etc.
Anyhow at the early scan they couldn’t see anything, she said they can see the gestation sac which just looked like a black hole but normally would see a flutter or heartbeat in there. She said I’m roughly 6w 1 days given the measurements although from my periods I guessed at 7weeks.
I’ve made the error of googling her notes she gave me particularly PUL which I know know is pregnancy of unknown location. This has FREAKED ME OUT. It does say three possibly scenarios, 1) ectopic but she seemed quite reassured there was no ‘outside pregnancy’, 2) miscarriage but I haven’t bled since my last period and 3) it was just done too early. I’m hoping that’s the case but she didn’t particularly convince me. When I asked her to be honest with me, well she wasn’t reassuring at all and just kept saying she’d expect Hoare this flutter etc and go to the doctor to arrange another scan and some more blood tests etc etc.
This has honestly thrown me sideways. Anyone had this which ended positively??

Hi - Early pregnancy is very complicated.
The first thing you see is a gestation scan around the 4 week mark, then a yolk sac and then a fatal pole around the 6 week mark.
Did the gestation sac measure 6 weeks 1 day? and was there a yolk sac? if the sac was measuring 6 weeks and there was no yolk sac you cannot rule out an ectopic as you have to see a yolk scan in the gestation sac. Did they do your bloods?
