First Scan

Im 6 weeks pregnant and had my first abdominal ultrasound scan yesterday. It shows an empty sac with no fetal pole. Dr say it's still early and to go back and scan 2 weeks later. Should i be worry? Anyone had the same experience?

Same for me. I had an ectopic so I was very scared when I went in for scan at 6 weeks. 2 weeks later, baby had a heartbeat and doing well. Now, 37weeks4days. Waiting for her any day now! Sending prayers your way too! Baby is gonna be fine!

Now, my baby is 4 months and thriving!

Don't worry so much.. I had the same scenario with you when I had my first baby.. Did the scan at around week 5/6 and can only see sac hence was told to come back 2 weeks later. Which I did and everything turns out good!

I went for mine today and its the same experience as you :) Doctor also mentioned its still early as your LMP is not accurate! Stay positive! 2 weeks later we will see our baby! 😘

It’s normal, mine too! It got me very worried, but I went back again everything shows well. Meanwhile you just chill and take care of yourself. Congratulations!

Yes sis,,,we are the same hoping will help us..i hope my second baby will show it..ameen...

Thanks everyone! Im relieved now hearing so many of the similar situation. I shall wait for the next scan patiently.

Not to worry as you will be able to see the baby with heartbeat detected from 8 weeks onwards.

Should be able to see during week 7. I went for my 1st scan during week 7 and it's visible.

Normally only can see sac during 6 weeks scan. That was mine during around 6 weeks too.
