Very First Scan, Not sure What to Think

Postby sassygirl514 » Wed Jun 25, 2014 5:29 pm

Ok so i don't know what to make of this, as i was expecting to see more on the screen. I am 6 weeks from lmp (Just under 4 weeks from ovulation/conception) but it doesn't seem to be measuring up, all we saw was the gestational sac and thats it-Nothing else...Shouldn't there atleast be a yolk sac inside at this stage in the game?? (And maybe the beginnings of fetal pole???)Can the dates be that off you think? I did ovulate kind of late, a little past day 14 so would that make a difference ? The sac looks small but it might be the appropriate size if i'm as much as a week behind. Should i be concerned at this point or just wait it out. They asked that i come back in a week to 10 days for another scan but im scared it'll just be the same thing again! I am so terrified of miscarriage, especially a missed one, or blighted ovum. What is the likelihood of that happening after the fact of seeing an empty sac this far along ?? The doctor simply assured me that its still early on and that everything is too small to see, and to give it time to grow.....Any insight is appreciated!!

This looks right on time IMO, and anything before 8 weeks is really up in the air growth wise, those couple days late for ovulation could really make all the difference(:

Well yes, at 6 wks it would have been *better* to see a yolk sac, but your egg could just be positioned at an odd angle that makes it hard to see, so it wouldn't show until you have a little more growth.. It's happens pretty often, so I hope this is the case for you(:

Oh, well that makes sense i understand. Also, for some reason they didn't measure anything and give me a size on the sac which would've been very helpful if they had. They said everything was too early, that it was still small and that they would date it the next time. I just wish i knew what stage along it was

Try not to worry too much. I know its so much easier said than done (Im sitting here worrying until my first scan). I swear I see something over towards the right of the sac. Also, if your dates are off by a few days especially this early on, it does make a huge difference. When will you be getting another scan?

Wow thank you for reassuring me, im a mess and will continue to be until i know everything's fine. Luckily i return for another u/s tomorrow, bright and early. I dont want to stress, i just really cant help but be paranoid. Im a worrier by nature. Plus i read too many horror stories about things happening to people, then look at statistics and wonder if that could be me in the same boat. I am so terrified of miscarriage its crazy. Anyway are you referring to the tiny white dot on the right side?? That caught my eye too but didn't notice it at first. Could that be the beginnings of a yolk sac???
