is scared.... can anyone tell me its gonna be okay?

I went in for an ultrasound yesterday...I was supposed to be around 5wks 3d, and they didnt see anything. They just saw a black dot that was "probably" the sac. They said maybe its less than 5 wks and I'm too early to see much, they did an u/s on my belly not internal.... I'm wonderin if this has happened to anyone else? Like is it okay mayb just too early?

  • I would not worried. That is very early to see anything without an internal scan. Try to relax and wait it out. Did they schedule you another ultrasound?

  • at 5 weeks they would not be able to see anything definative without a vaginal long as your hormone levels are ok and going up regularly there is nothing to worry about.

  • i had early scan at 6 weeks, said they had to make another appt for scan because no heartbeat
    it was just because it was too early

    TRY to relax, it is very very early

  • just try to relax and not stress yourself out then~ I know its hard not to think about especially if you have been trying to conceive for a while...just keep yourself busy until the appt.

  • Dont worry until the doctor tells you to worry :) I'm sure it was just too early to see anything via a traditional ultrasound, I've always had vaginal ones until 12 weeks or so.

  • When I was 5.5wks they did a transvaginal u/s and seen the gestational sac which looks like a black circle. So I would have them do a transvaginal next time. Good luck

  • idk i didnt get my first u/s til 14 weeks.. but foryour sake i hope it was just too early goodluck

  • Yeah I think 5 weeks is way too early for an u/s. Any reason they did it that early?
