  • I had the same thing happen to me. The docs gave me 2 wks to self miscarry. But the 2 wks came and went, so they had to do a suction D&C. They basically remove the sac for you. It didn't hurt, and I had a light period after(they put you under for this procedure, like a day surgery). I think when this happens, it's kinda like your body prepared itself to be preggers, but the egg and sperm didn't feritlize, so you are left with a sac. But I'm really not sure exactly how this happens. I was able to get preggers again with no problem at all.

  • It depends on how far along you should be. It could just be too soon.

  • It means you are not far enough along to see anything else. They were gonna give me a shot to pass the sack, did one more ultrasound and there she was! If the ultrasound tech said they didn't see anything but a sack they are just telling you what they see, they aren't doctors or radiologists. They cannot diagnose. If the doctor hasn't said anything to you I would relax.

  • it could be a blighted ovum or i could be too early. i was supposed to be 8 weeks and i was only at 5 weeks on the u/s they gave me 2 weeks to come back and repeat the u/s nd now i have a happy 2 yr old boy!
