Post subject: PLEASE has anyone been through this?early scan shown no sign
i worked out that i would be six weeks
pregnant, going from the first day of my last period!
i had some light bleeding (only when i wiped myself) on sat.
after going to A&E on sat Cblood took, and hormone levels high), they refered me to the early prgnancy clinic, where i have been today.
i had an ultra sound and internal scan, but there was no sign of pregnancy, my blood was taken again and was high, so i have to go back on wed for blood taken again! they said it could be possible that it has not come out of the tube yet (meaning i am earlier pregnant than i thought) or an etopic pregnancey! has anybody else been threw this??
please comment i am trying t stay positive but my worlds crumbling

if it was an etopic pregnancy then wouldn't u be in some sort of pain or discomfort??? i had pains when i was only 4 weeks, so had just found out i was pregnant. i had the blood test done on a wednesday and again on that friday to check that the pregnancy hormone had doubled, which is what its supposed to do every 48hrs.
everything had doubled and was told everything was as planned but i had a 7.5week scan just to check on baby, and all was fine again, and baby had strong heart beat.
i never got the internal scan, or a normal scan when i was 4 weeks as i was told that everything would be too small to see anything.
i really wouldn't worry as when u had ur last period it could have been 2 weeks untill u actually concived, meaning u'd be 4 weeks instead of 6.
have u been bleeding since or heavily at all??
hope everything goes well for you, and wish u the best of luck, please let us know how u get on.

thankyou kimberly20 for your story and advice,
i have slight bleeding today after the internal scan (again only when i wipe), but it looks like old blood, and they said that can happen after the internal!
im prayin that i am not as far gone as i thought, so that it wud explain why they couldnt find anything!

Know what you're going through!!! Had scan yesterday as had bleeding and pains. Thought i was 6 weeks and all they could see was a 4mm sac so said I was only 5 weeks. They did warn me that they might not see anything. They said that dates can be out as thay are only an estimate. If your hormones are right and you've done a test then you must be much earlier than you think. They can't see anything until 5 weeks. I know it's easy so say don't panic but just try to take their advice as they know what they are looking for.
Take it easy x

Post subject: How strange?!
The first day of my last period was 13th Jan too!!! Thought I was 6 weeks and only just 5 weeks. I had my hormones checked and called the EPU today and they said that hormone levels were right. They said that if hormones are right then that's enough to say everything is going ok. Have you got another scan booked in? You may have been just under 5 weeks and if so they wouldn't have seen anything - any sac would be under 4mm and v difficult to see. Things happen v quickly as within a week you can see the sac and then another 1/2 week later you can see the 'yolk' and in another week they will see a heartbeat - amazing isn't it!!!

god yea. i went to hospital with kidney pains(before i knew i was pregnant) thinking that i had kidney stones. they took blood and said my hormone levels were high-indicating a pregnancy! they sent me to another hospital straight away to have tests done as they thought i was having an ectopic pregnancy, but when i had a scan you couldnt really see anything( i was only 4.5 weeks pregnant) so they told me to come back in a few days and have blood taken again. basically, when you have your blood test a couple of days later, your hormone levels should have at least doubled(mine did)in this case-the baby is in the correct place, if your blood has not even doubled, something is wrong e.g ectopic pregnancy. hope i might of helped a bit xxxx

So sorry to hear your news. It's the most devistating thing to hear (went through it before christmas)
Take time to heal both emotionally and physically and then try to look to the future - I promise you will begin to feel like you can move on but there text book timescale to it.
Look after yourself x
