I've never had a scan quite so early, a lot of areas only scan from 6 weeks onwards though for exactly this reason as so early on you often can't see anything , sometimes not even the sac , from 5-6 weeks they might be able to see the foetal pole and from 6 weeks onwards they can often see a heartbeat.
If you've got a tilted uterus then it can take longer to see properly, my earliest was at around 7 weeks and they still couldn't see a heartbeat thanks to my tilted womb.
I had to have repeat scans before they confirmed everything was ok, so I know how stressful the wait is .
Don't forget though a scan picture is like a slice through the uterus so if they don't get quite the right angle or the right depth then they can easily miss a baby which is only mm's long at this stage Smile
The cramping is 100% normal for early pregnancy as is worrying unfortunately but hopefully Fridays scan will reassure you and everything will be ok xx

I had a scan at 5 weeks and they only saw a sac which is all the can see at this point. For me it was reassuring as it was in the right place. When I had my next scan at 7 weeks - there was a beautiful little heartbeat and something that resembled a dolphin. Having my 12 week scan today so hopefully the dolphin has progressed.

Its just unnerving when the hospital refuse to say whether its a viable pregnancy when they only see the yolk sac. But if you think logically how many changes that little sac has to make before a little heartbeat can be seen, you can understand why the cant commit either way.

I had one at about 4 1/2 - 5 weeks and they could barely see enough to even date it. I had to have an internal scan.
