So i had a utlrasound at er last night (vaginal) and all they saw was a little yolk sack.. i am only 5weeks.. they said this is normal.. but personally i trust mommys more then busy er docs... do think its normal?

thay sadi babys in there but jsut too tiny.. i read online that between 5.5 and 6.5 weeks they should see a fetus stalk.. they didnt tell me if they saw it or not but didint seem worried.. i am between 5 weeks and 6 weeks (er told me different then preg trsting place) i think im just worrying but want to be sure

  • My ultrasound with my daughter was at 5w6d. She was just a little yolk sac with a heart beat... That's really what they are for the first 8 or 9 weeks.. yolk sacs with a heart beat. :) I wouldn't stress about it.

  • I am not sure exactly what they are supposed to see. When I had a internal ultrasound at 6 weeks, it was just a spot on the screen and not details were given. If they were not worried, then don't be. Have faith!

  • if they weren't concerned about it don't worry about it. your only 5 weeks your really early on so if very likely that it was still just a yolk sac. you are just worrying take a deep breath in and relax. :)

  • I am sure there is a baby there, but by my experience I too had a sack and it turned out to be empty :(

    But 2 years later I was pregnant for sure, just be patient don't rush it. Your turn will come :)
