Early Scan Experiences

I know this is discussed all the time - I've seen the threads and I've also spent a lot time on google but as you know, we early pregnancy peeps can never have enough answers!

I had a small bleed on Tuesday. Was scanned this morning. They didn't see a heartbeat. They dated the pregnancy at 6 and a half weeks. All other signs other than missing heartbeat were normal - sac, yolk sac and node. They explained very sensitively and kindly that usually at this point they'd expect to see a heartbeat but also told me not to give up hope entirely as there are occasions where a heartbeat can be missed at this point, and consequently are scanning me again in 10 days. They also explained they saw another sac but this was empty and may explain the bleed I had.

From what I've read, there are lots of women that have gone on to hear heartbeats at their next scan and equally as many who haven't. I already know this but was just wondering what experience you mumsnetters have had in this department? Trying to keep positive whilst preparing myself for the worst... such a bizarre feeling.

I also forgot to say that the rump measurement was 8.5mm... I don't know if this makes a difference.
