well 10 days ago, i had an u/s i measured 5 weeks, i had one today and i measured 6 weeks, but the only thing there is the gestational sac. i mean there didn't seem to be anything.
i really don't have a good feeling about this.
edited to add, i think the correct measurement for today was 6 weeks 2 days. the u/s tech was trying to be positive by saying it may be just a little too early, but if the heart starts beating around 6 weeks and there was nothing in there yet, i'm not holding my breath.
I know how you feel- the beginning of my pregnancy with Leah was a not good- cramping. bleeding, measuring small in my u/s.... I thought it was over many times! All you can do is wait, and unfortunately that seems to be the hardest part about any pregnancy! Take it easy and hope for the best!

I am one of those people that didn't get a hb at 6 weeks! I went in at 6 weeks to hear the hb and look, and the baby only measured 5 weeks, in fact they couldn't even see baby, it was just the sac and it measured only 5 weeks. I had to wait 2 weeks and went back for another u/s and everything was back on track and she measured perfect with my edd. Don't give up just yet, I was the same way you were, I didn't have much hope I cried and cried, and now I regret giving up on her too soon. Everyone and every baby is different. Try to stay positive, I know it is hard. Oh, and my doc didn't seem to give me much hope either she said it could go either way. And now i am almost 25 weeks along....try to keep your chin up!! I am here if you want to talk or have questions!!
You and your baby are in my thoughts and prayers!!!
I am sorry you didn't see more. I soooo hope things change for you on the next u/s. Lots of hugs!

i talked to the nurse while i was at work. she didn't seem to worried. she said there had to be something there by next week. and i have to get an u/s in 1 week. the u/s tech didn't seem to concerned either. but maybe they just don't want to jump the gun. i saw the monitor, there was absolutely nothing, it was just black, i think even if i had seen just a little something i would be feeling just a little bit better about this. the nurse said things can change in hours at this point. i hope i end being absolutely amazed at next weeks u/s.

Good luck hun .. I hope for the best for you and your little belly bean
Oh, sweetie. I know that it's hard not to give up hope, but we all know SO MANY women who saw absolutely nothing at that point. It's a good sign that you're showing a gestational sac right now--keep hope in THAT! For my m/c's, there was nothing, just a "formation of cells" in the middle of a bunch of uterine lining. So, here's hoping for a good u/s next week! More easily said than done, but enjoy your pregnancy in the meantime!!! *HUGS*
