I went for an ultrasound at one month, and they couldnt find the fetus/embryo in my amniotic sac?

When I went in and they took an ultrasound....they showed me it...hoping id be happy to see my baby...but we looked hard at the sac for almost 20 mins and, couldnt see any structure in it, which at about 5 weeks now, they should. I am very concerned. Has anyone had this happen...and it not have been an etopic pregnancy? I am going in for blood work and another ultrasound friday, but I wish i knew more answers before then. Your feedback would be greatly apreciated whereas I am a wreck trying to figure out whats wrong with my baby.

  • 5 weeks is too early. I had one at 5 weeks and they could only see the sac. I'm now 22 weeks pregnant. The same thing happened when I was pregnant with my son. We went back at 8 weeks and we could see him perfectly.

  • I had one done to see how far along I was. According to my last period I should have been 10 weeks but I was only about 4/5 weeks (I am not regular AT ALL). The doctor did an internal ultrasound and we saw the little round white yolk sac. Nothing more than just a little white circle. Now she will be 7 months old on friday. Do not fret yet. It could have just been really early. Good Luck and I hope everything turns out fine.

  • It's too early to see anything. That is a typical ultrasound for that gestation.
