The doctors say I am 5 weeks pregnant and I had an ultrasound and all they saw was an empty sac? Is it just to early to see anything else?

  • could be a false pregnancy. They can see stuff in there by week 5. It won't be much, but yeah....they should still see something in there.

  • I went at almost 4 weeks and that's about all they saw for me. Now I am 8 1/2 weeks and all is well. Usually, they don't see much of anything till 6 weeks

  • Did the doctor act concerned? When I went at 6 weeks it looked like a little hotdog I know the baby grows fast so it could be just a sac at weeks.

  • Well yeah the doctor said it may just be too early. And I have another ultrasound on the 31st, but I am soo nervous. I am happy with the feed back I got, I really appreciate it. And I will let you all know when I go on the 31st. Thanks again.
