I had my first appointment today and a quick ultrasound. The ultrasound showed a pregnancy in the uterus but just the sac, no heartbeat, nothing in the sac that I could see. I should be 7 weeks tomorrow, so shouldn't there be SOMETHING? They sent me over for a BETA and I will repeat that on Friday and then go back for another ultrasound in a week. I'm so sad and heartbroken. Today is also my daughter's 9th birthday. It should be a good day.

I would think there would be something. But don't lose hope yet until you get your results from the beta. Did the doc seemed concerned? Are you sure of your due date? Will you get the results back from the beta today? I'm sorry.

My doc seemed concerned and she told me she didn't want to give me false hope but said we do have to wait until the blood test results and the ultrasound to be sure. I could be off on my ovulation date as we weren't using a monitor or opks at all, but the most would 4-5 days. Hoping that makes a huge difference and we'll see something next week. Not sure if she'll give me my blood results today or wait until the other on friday

Hun I'm hoping things are ok. On my Google search for info I did read were some women experienced this at 7 weeks but went back and baby was there and just fine. Don't lose hope and KUP. Happy birthday to your sweet little girl!

Have you had a beta done before this point? I pray everything is alright! Even at 6.6 weeks it might be hard to see something.

It is very possible that next ultrasound will show a wonderful heartbeat. The Beta tests will tell you something before then. Very sorry you have to go through this. I've had four miscarriages, I really hope the Beta tests will give good results for you and your family. 7 weeks is still early for an ultrasound.

My tech said that she really doesn't like to do them before 8 weeks because if dates are off even a little bit, it can greatly vary what you see on the u/s. I read that you can or can not see a heartbeat all the way up to 7 weeks...not sure if how I worded that makes sense but I hope you understand what I'm saying .I will pray super hard that everything is fine and you just have a stubborn little bean that is waiting to show Mommy a strong little heartbeat

Was there a fetal pole or yolk sac? i'm so sorry you're going through this. My blighted ovum earlier this year was the same. At 5.5 weeks everything looked "normal" then at 7 weeks 5 days all that was there was a large, empty sac. My hormone levels were great (over 100,000) and my doc said that at that level she should have seen a baby clear as day. I will pray for you to get answers soon and to see a beautiful bean next week Maybe bean was being stubborn and hiding? I don't like getting my picture taken either.

Thanks ladies. No fetal pole, nothing. Just an empty sac. I feel like we should have seen something.

At my scan last week they thought I was nearly 7 weeks and did a scan to see my heartbeat. There was only a yolk sac and they measured me at 5 weeks 4 days. I was broken. I had my betas drawn and they were okay.
I went home and did some "research" to try to figure out when the start of my last period was, and I miscalculated everything! I was ACTUALLY 5 weeks 4 weeks along, not 7. I have a scan on Friday, and praying for a heartbeat/development...
Anyways, the point of this is that perhaps your due date was miscalculated, and you are not as far along as they thought. I truly hope that is the case.
Please keep us posted on the levels.

also, a lot of time, if there is something wrong, the sac would be misshapen or cloudy. Did they mention anything like that?

Praying that your O date is wrong and you'll get some good results this week! I hope your day has gotten better too.

4-5 days can make a difference this early since there's rapid changes going on. How much of a difference I'm not sure. I hope you get better news after your blood work and next ultrasound!
