Post subject: Hi
My name is widat, and i am a new member and just wanna share my joy of being pregnant after 9 years. i went for a scan today and a bit worried when they told me they could see a sack in the womb but cannot see a baby yet. i am very worried and please could someone tell me if at 8 weeks, can you see anything in the tummy like a heart beat or anything at all or is it too early and i am worrying for nothing. i will be going for the 12 weeks scan middle of july. I am praying that all is ok and will be ok.

Hi there. I had what is known as a blighted ovum, where the egg fertilises but never implants else the baby grows but then dies and is reabsorbed, which was diagnosed at almost 8 weeks. On the scan all that can be seen if this is the case is a larger than average gestational sac (anything over 20mm). At 8 weeks you should be able to see a little bean shape with a heartbeat, but it is very possible that your dates are wrong and so are earlier than you think. I am surprised that your hospital have not offered you another scan at 12-14 days as this is standard when you do not see a clear fetus on a scan so if I were you I would get onto your gp or hospital and ask for a scan then. It's not right to make you wait that long for a scan. I hope everything turns out ok for you.

Post subject: thank you
Thanks ladies for your replies. they told me to come this week but i am scared to go, i will go on my 12th week scan. i do hope all will be ok. i am so worried still, but i wont let it bother me. yes, i do have my 12th week scan coming up , but hasnt come thru the post yet. it should be around the 15th of july. please pray for me everything ok. the experience i had with the stenographer was not nice. she was not helpful or reassuring. just like a robot really. i find that more upsetting than anything else.
well, once again thank you ladies. will let you know about the scan when

Widat I am so sorry for your loss. I was really hoping as we did not hear from you that it turned out ok else you were waiting for a scan. It is a horrible time, but especially after waiting 9 years. Make sure you grieve and take time to heal, and if you decide to try to concieve again I wish you luck.
