Hy,

I am around 5 weeks pg (14 days from +ve) and had my first scan yesterday. Dr. told me that he could only see the sac, because it is too early. Is it normal? And why do they scan so early, then? They took a blood sample and I am still waiting for the results and I am dead worried. I don't know what they are looking for in this sample blood... Could sbdy help? I am sorry for being such a nuisance, but I don't know whom to ask! :eek:
Love, J

Hi,

Try not to worry, the blood test is to see the hormone levels of the baby (HCG), the levels should be at certain levels at each stage of pregnancy, and double every two days.

Good luck Juliex

Quite normal to only see sac at 5 weeks. In a further week, we would expect to see fetal pole and hopefully heartbeat.

Hi Julie,

I had a scan at 5+2 and only a sac could be seen, but two weeks later there was a heartbeat and a definate shape.

I think I was scanned so early partly because I didn't believe and partly because the clinic didn't believe it either!!

Best of luck and ^congrats^
