Post subject: Not sure
I found out I was pregnant a week ago and had the usual frights! I had severe pain one night in the week and went to my GP. He basically said everything looked ok - but go back if anything else happens. (It has been fine since) when I went to work, they arranged a scan to put my mind at ease. When I went, she said that I only had a 4 week sac Although I thought I was 5 at the time. I'm sure that I have just got my dates wrong, but she has arranged HCG tests and a re scan after a week to make sure.
I am going out of my mind! Has anyone else experienced anything like this?

Hi there I had an early scan at 5.5 - 6 weeks I thought I was more like 6.5 which makes a huge difference at that stage. I was told they might not see anything at that stage which is common, there are a huge amount of postings on this website about this and they nearly all say nothing but sac seen...try not to worry your bloods will give you a clearer idea of what is going on.
Take care, Flossie xx

I had a very similar thing to you. I am now 8 weeks but when i first found out at around 4-5 weeks i had really bad stomach cramps that were keeping me awake at night. I was sent to the hospital where they checked me out with various scans, examinations and HCG test and was told eveything was fine. I am still a bit nervous now due to those problems but on the other hand i am grateful as i have had 3 scans so far and saw the little heartbeat on Tuesday (which not many other people get to see before 12 weeks)!! I was really unsure of my dates and the hospital couldnt really tell how far gone i was until i was 7 weeks (when they saw the heart beat). Apparently, its until really untill then that they can get a good idea of how far gone you are. I also had a scan at around 5.5 weeks and they didnt really see anything or give me too much info then either.
Try not to worry (i know its easier to say), i think you will be fine.
