finger crossed for you. I have a friend who lives in South Africa that experienced the same thing. At her follow up US they were able to see the yolk sac. I think they say 6 weeks is the earliest you can detect the yolk sac???

In the UK we dont get early US. our first is at 12 weeks as it can be emotionally distressing if there is no yolk sac seen when everything can be absolutely perfectly healthy.

I know its hard but try to keep possitive until your next US.

@asphodel:  I’m sorry! I hope everything works out! I know how hard it can be to not stress about this and have to wait to go back. Good luck!

@ChocolateLime:  I agree, I think early U/S are pretty emotionally tough for some.  I wouldn’t want an early U/S

@asphodel:  Sending good vibes your way. I am very sorry. I had an early u/s, and had I went in any earlier they probably wouldn’t have seen much, so I have faith that it is just becuase you are early yet. Fingers crossed and many hugs that that proves to be true 🙂

@asphodel: Try to stay calm until the next US.  I don’t even know why they have pregnant women come in SO early- unless you are a special case.

When I called my OB/Gyn and said “I got a positive home test so I suppose I should make an appointment”- they asked me to guess about how far along I am.  They told me (very politely)- that I really didn’t need to be seen sooner than 10 weeks along (unless I had a health condition)- because even if I were to miscarry or the pregnancy wasn’t going to run it’s course, there honeslty wasn’t anything they could do to fix/save it.  So my first US was around the 10 week mark, and you could see this tiny alien in the sac.

@asphodel:  They found an empty sac with no HB when my cousin thought she was 8 weeks– as it turns out, she was only 5 weeks! Momma and baby are now 17 weeks and doing great!

6 weeks is too early to see anything yet. My doctor said that is one of the reasons why they don’t schedule women for ultrasounds before 10 weeks; the only exceptions are if they have a medical condition. I know it’s not easy, but try to not stress about it.

I’m sending tons of positive thoughts your way and hoping everything looks great next week!

Try not to stress.  The exact same scenario happened to me — thought I was 7w, was actually 5.5, US showed an empty sac.  I’m now 24.5w and everything is great.
