1 Bump

Went to first doctor appointment. They said that I was more than likely only 4 weeks all they could find was the gestational sac. Has this ever happened to anyone? Is there any need for concern?

  • no i found out i was pregnant at 4 weeks also and all they seen was the sac. But two weeks later there was a heart beat. I am now 7 weeks and 3 days.

  • No need for concern yet. Wait until the next appointment. If after another three weeks or so they still don't see an embryo then you can worry.

  • thank you its hard not to worry but the doctor acted as there was no concern. She tested my HCG and I have to go back tomorrow so they can make sure that its doubling correctly

  • With my 3rd they did an ultrasound at 5 weeks and only found the sac, at 8 weeks she had a very healthy heartbeat, its still very early so I wouldn't worry about it. Good luck and congrats!

  • This is why early, and indeed most, ultrasounds are unnecessary. Needless worry over nothing.
