Same happened to me! I was a week behind where I thought I would of been and only saw A sac. Found the heart beat two weeks later and by my 10 week scan I was measuring right on time based in lmp. Now he’s even a tiny but ahead! I think early pregnancy is definitely not as understood as they claim.

Thanks everyone for the support! I have been meaning to write an update.
The wedding was really wonderful. I couldn’t have asked for a better day – everything went according to plan and we (and the guests!) had a fabulous time.
The day we left for our honeymoon, I had an appointment with my MD to review the ultrasound. She said it could go either way – either it was too early to tell, or I would likely miscarry. She seemed to think it would be likely I would miscarry on my honeymoon, and did a lot of teaching about what would happen if I miscarried, and what I could handle on my own and what I should be going to the hospital for. So, unfortunately, while I really enjoyed the honeymoon, I spent most of it watching for signs of miscarriage.
When we got back, this past Tuesday, I had a follow-up ultrasound. By my calculations, I should have been over 9 weeks at that point. The technician did not tell me anything, would not let my husband come in the room, and would not let me see the screen. I met with my doctor on Thursday and she reviewed the results – this time, there was a fetus, measuring at 6 weeks, but not heartbeat. She said a miscarriage was likely and sent me for bloodwork.
The day I returned from the honeymoon, I started getting spotting on and off. By Friday it had progressed to bleeding, and serious cramps – much worse than I’ve ever had with any period. And now, Sunday, the bleeding and cramping continues. I know I’ve lost the baby. I was supposed to see my MD on Saturday for the blood results to confirm miscarriage, but I cancelled. I didn’t need confirmation – I knew. I’m going to call on Monday and schedule an appointment for this week. I’m just hoping and praying that this passes quickly.
Sorry for the lengthy post. I truly appreciate everyone’s comments – they gave me so much comfort, and allowed me to enjoy my wedding instead of stressing, and I cannot thank you enough!

lauroo: sorry to hear. That sucks. I hope things resolve quickly for you and you get your sticky baby soon. There is a lot is good support on these boards for those of us who have experienced loss and a great many of whom have gone on to have a term pregnancy shortly after. Hugs to you.
