Okay had an ultrasound this morning..I am only 5 weeks 2 days from LMP.....she said that the gest. sac was measuring 6 weeks...she never saw anything in it...how can this be? I am only 5 weeks and 2 days from my last period...how can the sac measure 6 weeks? And if it measures 6 weeks shouldn't you see something? Some one please shed some light on this for me I am more worried now then I was before? She said thats all I can tell you right now....pretty cold...I am not having much luck with doctors....someone ever experince this before or know anything about this?????
Here's the thing you need to remember: measurements are not exact. You can measure as much as 2 weeks off. Some embryos are bigger than others and some grow faster or slower. Maybe your sac is just big. And, I believe, that 5 wks 2 days, a sac would be all you can see.
Yep, at 5w 2d, you should only see the sac and measurements are approximations of gestational age, but there is a lot of variance. I know it's hard, but try not to worry too much. I think you're right on track. When do you go back for another u/s?

In all three of my pregnancy my sac has ALWAYS measured small by a good week. It's never been a problem, and it's actually very normal for things to not measure right on at any stage of a pregnancy. Until at least 6-8 weeks more than likely all the dr can find is the sac.

I would not worry too much. When I got pregnant this time, my dr had me in for an U/S at 6 and 7 weeks. For the 6 week one the tech had to zoom in a million times to even see the little "blip" of the heart beat. The baby only measured .25cm. Still really small at this stage. You should be able to see the baby and heart beat in a few weeks.
