At your stage of pregnancy, the lack of heartbeat means absolutely nothing. You're right around the time when the heartbeat starts. It could even be that it starts beating away tomorrow. You're just right on that cusp.

And to put the sickness into perspective, I was really sick from very early on with my first pregnancy, which ended in a miscarriage. However, with this pregnancy, I didn't start feeling queasy about the sixth week, but it didn't pick up until the eighth week. And I don't think it was ever as bad as with my first pregnancy.

So don't let any of that discourage you. My fingers are crossed that next week's u/s will provide you with the reassurance you need, as well as a glimpse at that beautiful heartbeat.

Ditto what Adrienne said. I immediately had symptoms out the wazoo with my miscarriage. The only symptom that was more intense this time was the morning sickness and evey other symptom I had was much less than my first pregnancy. I do not believe in symptoms as an indicator of how the pregnancy is going since I've had friends who have had healthy pregnancy with no symptoms at all. And since women get different symptoms with different pregnancies, even with the same outcome, I believe symptoms are just how your body reacts to that specific combination of chromosomes that is that one baby.

thats for sure! I know that Tammy has no m/s whatsoever! and shes got 2 in there! and Idk if you know who Becks is... but she was pregnant with twins and never got sick once! and now she has 2 beautiful babies!!! so just because your not having any symptoms doesnt mean anything... and just enjoy not having them! I didnt start feeling sick until i was around 7 weeks... and have been told by a LOT of women that it didnt kick in for awhile either for them...

Thanks so much ladies! You're all so sweet It does make me feel a lot better. Thanks . I know it's too early, everything I've read as well has said the same.

To be honest, in true Katie form, I might skip out on all things PG related for the next week and a day (that includes JM). I know myself, and I know the more I read about things, the more I'll overthink. I am just going to try and take the next week 'off' and just focus on work, life, my pups, and I hope it will just fly by. So I'll be MIA for a while. I just know myself too well

Thanks again I promise I'll update as soon as I get home from my ultrasound next Friday! (It's at 1:15 and I took the rest of the afternoon off work - so it'll be the weekend!).

When I went in at 5 weeks 5 days, I only saw a sac, not even a yolk. I have longer cycles (30-31) and could have implanted late, but the u/s tech said I looked more like 5 weeks, 2 days. That is without seeing a yolk. I went in at 6 weeks 6 days and heard the heartbeat and saw my little one. A couple days can make a world of difference, but it was a LONG 8 days though. June 1st will be here before you know it!

Well it doesn't look like my little jumpingbean will make it. They couldn't find a real heartbeat - there were some little beats here and there but very very weak. It was measuring 6 weeks 3 days - which is only 2 days of growth in 9 days. They can't move forward with anything (like a D&C) until there has officially been no growth or no flicker of a heartbeat. So I have an u/s next thurs to 'call it' and them we'll decide how it will play out.

I'll probably be off JM for a while now. It means so much to me to have you ladies thinking of me though. Thank you so much. I know 7 weeks is still early but I still feel pretty broken up about it.

Oh, Katie, I am so very sorry. This is honestly not the news that I expected to hear.

I'll be thinking of you and still hoping for a miracle for your little bean.

Hi Katie. I sent you a PM but totally understand if you don't feel like talking. I know exactly what you're going through and I'm here for you if you need anything. I wish I could give you a hug right now!
