Early scan... anyone else had this

I was sent for an early scan as we couldn't date the edd I had my bloods taken and my hormone level is just under 6000 which the midwife said indicated 7 weeks but when we went in for the scan they could only find the sack... proof of pregnancy but no signs of a baby yet estimated 5 weeks we have to go back in 2 weeks to see if it has changed

I know they have to prepare you for worse outcomes but it has worried me tho I have no signs of anything being wrong no bleeding or excessive pain so I'm confused and worried can anyone please reassure me this is normal? 



  • @Sfw1991 I am sorry you are feeling worried and distressed. It could just be that you are 5 wks and at that point that is all you would see. I would imagine the level of hormone can only give a rough indication of how many weeks you are so hopefully when you get a scan in a few weeks all will be well.

    It's a horrible old wait for you though ❤️ xx
  • Thank you just trying to stay positive but my partner is struggling also xx
  • @Sfw1991 I am sure 😔 early pregnancy can be so cruel and stressful 💔 it's a horrible wait for you both but I really do think there is hope and am sending positive vibes that all goes well in your next scan ❤️ xxx
  • I appreciate that so much! There's no negative signs of anything going wrong so possibly is just to early just 2 week waiting game sucks! Xx
  • @Sfw1991 please let me know how you get on 😊 xxx
