8 weeks but ultrasound showing 6 weeks??

Postby mrscolviper3 » Mon Mar 23, 2015 9:47 am

Has anyone had this happen and it turn out ok? I'm 8 weeks going by my last menstrual cycle but my ultrasound showed an empty sac. The tech said she thought she saw a flicker but wasn't sure. I go back fri to get another look. So upset!

I guess not an empty sac. There's a tiny blob. I'll post the u/s pic

I don't know if this is much help...I had an early ultrasound at what I thought was 6wks 4days according to my lmp however baby was only measuring 5 weeks. I'm now nearly 15 weeks and when I went in for u/s last week I was measuring 5 days behind my lmp calculation. It may be that you ovulated/implanted late. Please take care. Xx.

I can see what appears to be baby they have it marked between the two +'s. Its very possible all is well. Its hard not to worry though I know especially when you don't see what you expect too.

Thx for your replies. I was afraid maybe it stopped growing but my dr said she thinks she saw the heartbeat so I'm hoping I just had my dates wrong

Was this an abdominal ultrasound or trans vag? WhenI went for my scan at 7w4d baby only measured 6weeks with abdominal, she switched to internal and baby measured right on time. I have a tilted uterus so the distance from the probe was scewing the measurments. Fx for you that all turns out well.

I ovulated feb 9. So maybe I implanted late? My lmp was jan 26 but going by that date im 8 weeks. I never understood why they go by that date anyway

My third baby, due date and lmp was way off. I was certain they were wrong by two weeks, at birth he was eleven pounds and his skin was wrinkly. I'm certain they got it wrong and that's why he was so big but it did work out all right.

You can see the fetal pole and you have got to be at least six weeks to get heart beat flicker, sounds like a late implant.

When i had my first ultrasound i thought i was 6 weeks and the ultrasound showed nothing. I was devastated! Turns out i was two weeks behind. Now im 30 weeks with a healthy little girl.
