I made a post the other day about my first ultrasound and how it showed only a gestational sac measuring 5 weeks which I was told is normal. I made the mistake of googling and now I'm worried it's a blighted ovum. I don't have another ultrasound until the 12th so I get to worry until then. I don't have any pregnancy symptoms and I know even if I did it doesn't matter because it could still be a blighted ovum. I just wish I could shut my brain off and fast forward time.

It really is! I tell myself every time not to google but then I do and I obsess and freak out. Ugh everyone thinks there will be a healthy blob in there when I go back but I'm so afraid to get my hopes up.

I'm sure everything is fine. 5 weeks is really early. I had one at 6 weeks and all we saw was a flickering dot. She is a happy 2 year old now.  I could imagine how little there would have been a week earlier.

 It's normal. Stooooooopppp goooogllliiinnggg lol
Fetal pole is not generally seen til 6 weeks. And depending on how far between 5-6w you are,  not seeing the yolk sac wouldn't be concerning either.

It was measuring at 5 weeks 0 days. I know I know google is bad and every answer on there is miscarriage... or cancer. I keep trying to tell myself 5 weeks matches up perfectly to when I was suppose to ovulate and the last time Dh and I bd but I just can't calm myself down. It's awful.

I know it's hard to stop worrying once you start.  I was paranoid through my whole pregnancies.  I had two miscarriages prior to having dd1 and when I was 6w pregnant with her they told me I had a 50/50 chance of miscarrying due to a SCH that was the same size of the gestational sac.  So I worried the whole time even after they told me it had mostly reabsorbed lol. And with dd2 it was a totally straightforward healthy pregnancy and I was still paranoid the whole time then too lol.

Calm down. Stop googling. Stop stressing. Worrying about it is only going to cause more stress. Im sure everything is fine.

Google is the devil!!!! I googled when they told me there was a chance I had a molar pregnancy after DD was born. I didn't know what that was and google told me. Worst mistake.

everything is going to be fine! It's nothing but a baby in there. A normal healthy baby :)

If it helps, I thought I was 7 weeks with my last going off the day of my lmp. Well, I woke up one morning, a few days after finding out I was pregnant, and I had some bleeding. So I called my doctor and they sent me straight to the hospital. The ultrasound showed no evidence of pregnancy. The blood test showed I was pregnant. So I was only just about four weeks pregnant when that got done. When I went for a repeat ultrasound a week later, there was a gestational sac measuring 5 weeks 5 days. I went again another week later and there was a baby and a heartbeat. Stop worrying dear!!
