Ultrasound didn't go as planned :( JayneM 18 kids; Jacksonville, North Carolina 145 posts

I was supposed to be 10 weeks + 3 days and I went in for my ultrasound and there was just a big empty sac. This is my third pregnancy so I know what ultrasounds should look like so I immediately said there's nothing there is there? And she said well you definitely aren't 10.5 weeks. And she went and grabbed the dr but I think they were sugar coating it for me because the dr said just come back on the 14th for another ultrasound. He said I might not have gotten pregnant when I thought I did. Here's the thing, my last period was Nov24, I kept getting negative test and then on Christmas I thought I started my period but it only last a day so I teat on the 27th and got a positive. I thought that must have been implantation bleeding then. Got another positive on Jan19 at the dr office. And then today a big empty sac. I believe 100% that I miscarried, what do y'all think?

From the sounds of it you have had a MC, I really hope that its just that you are early on and they can't see the baby yet.

It could really be either scenario. I've had both happen.

Praying that you conceived later than you thought. Positive baby dust your way.

I don't want you to think the worse because sometimes fate has different ideas.
I also have been in the same boat although I was around 7 weeks when i had the scan they put my gestation at 5+6 weeks, I just had a feeling it wasn't right I didn't get MS or tender breast, I waited out them 10 long days and the day before my scan I started to spot...
The next day there was still a 5+6 weeks sac :(
I am sorry you have to go through this, I hope you get your rainbow..

Are they planning on monitoring your HCG levels to see whether they rise or fall?



I know how much this scenario sucks and I wish you the best.

For me I thought I was positive when my last period was, and I knew the exact date I had sex. Came in for my ultrasound and she was a little black hole. They had me come back to see if she was growing, and she did. Now she is 3.
I hope it goes the same for you. GL

Maybe you ovulated WAY late. I was 100% about the dates of my last period but when I went to my 1st ultrasound they said I was 2 freaking weeks off with my dates. I know when I had my period, so I had to have ovulated WAY late. Positive thoughts!

I guess on the 14th they will look at my Hgc levels and do another u/s. but I've had the growing breasts, no menstrual cycle, cravings, and nausea since around Christmas. But even if I'm not as far alone as when I originally believed, I had a positive pregnancy test at the dr office on the 19th, so I had to have been at least two weeks along at that point, and that was 3.5 weeks ago which would make me 5.5 weeks right? I should see SOMETHING instead of an empty sac. And I should even be able to hear a heartbeat in a couple days right?

I looked up pictures of a blighted ovum and that is exactly what mine looked like. I did have pregnancy symptons this entire time but now im thinking that my hormones are just wonky?? Im just so confused and its frustrating.
