    Unhappy HELP!!!!! 8 week scan shows 5 weeks :O

    Has this ever happened to anyone else?

    Went for 8 week- 2 day scan today and there was no featal pole and they guessed about 5weeks-1day. Last period was the 23rd of June.

    I go back in two weeks but majorly stressing!

    Before that period I actually went back on the pill for 4 days after my last one (onthe 12th) and then we decided to have another baby and I stopped it and had another period (on the 23rd).

    When you go off the pill you have a withdrawal bleed, which is not a 'real' period I.e. It does not follow ovulation and just happens because your hormone levels have changed due to the drug. I think it is very possible that you ovulated 2-3 weeks later than you expected, meaning that the dates from the scan are correct and there would be nothing to worry about. When did you get your BFP? Try not to stress over the next two weeks (pretty much impossible I know), and best of luck with your next scan.

    Sorry I don't really have an answer for you but I'm in a similar situation, I went for my scan on Friday (7weeks by my dates) and only showed 5 and a half. Could only see a gestational sac :-(

    Hi chrissie! Are you going for another scan in two weeks? Have you seen your Doc? Sorry for all the questions. Yep, all they could see is my gestational sac to. They talked about doing a transvag scan but we agreed to wait two weeks.Eeeeep! Will be going to the Doc tomorrow to see what he says.

    Hey! Yeh I had more bloods done on Saturday and will have more on Friday with another scan next Thursday, as long as the levels are still rising. I wish I was offered the Trans vaginal but I was the last appointment of the day and felt like they were pushing me out the door :-( I have been an emotional mess, but having a better day today :-)

    LoL talk about coincidence, my appointment was at 4:30pm and he was eager to get out of there. But I'm regretting it now. I think I should of pushed for one. I hope the doctor doesn't want to do more bloods. Only cause I hate neddles so much, but at the same time I really really really want to know whats going on. So bring on the vampire doctors

    Default HELP!!!!! 8 week scan shows 5 weeks :O

    Deepest deepest hugs for you, I recently went thur the same thing went for a scan at 7wks 2 days Sac measured 6wks... Could not find a heart beat or a pole, did a trans vag n still nothing :-( then the wait for another 2 weeks was the longest ever... i went back they did the tummy ultrasound then they suggested a trans vag, my HEart Broke instantly I knew there was nothing but the sac being a "BLIGHTED OVUM"
    Hardest thing to comprehend is that I still had morning sickness 4 days before my last scan and I'm being told there is nothing there...
    Hope everything goes well for you all, xoxo
    hubby and I are ttc baby number 3 after having my D&C on the 3rd july had one period and next is due in 6 days so at the moment fingers crossed...
