    Default 7 week scan

    I thought I'd write this in a separate topic.



    I had a internal scan yesterday to check for heartbeat (pg thru IVF) but no heartbeat detected. It's pretty much 7 weeks since O.

    Sac seemed slightly smaller than normal, but the right proportions, no inflammation or bleeding around it so scanning guy thinks it might jsut be too early to see yet. Maybe the embryo just floated around for a few extra days before it implanted.

    Has this happened with anyone else?

    When should I go for another scan to check, when it won't be too early?

    with my last pregnancy( which i miscarried) they did a scan at 7 weeks, there as no heartbeat, and only sac they told me to wait 2 weeks as i was only measuring 5 weeks....... i knew something was wrong as i was on clomid and knew when i O.

    After saying that this pregnancy i had a scan at 6.5 weeks and no heartbeat and only measuring 4-5 weeks.........i thought here i go again.......had a scan 2 weeks later and there was a heathy bubs with a 144bpm h/b. so i wasnt as far along as i thought.

    i wish you well

    hoping all is well [-o<

    Hi there,
    I had a scan done at 5 weeks 4 days and was told it was too early to see the heartbeat too. I havent had another scan yet and am guessing my next wont be until about 18 weeks as im not testing for d/s. Last week i was thinking perhaps i should have another scan as everyone on here were talking about their 12 weeks scan.. but after talking to my mum she said, back when she was pregnant they didnt even have ultrasound equipment so you didnt see the heartbeat at all, the doctors used equipment to hear it later on.. everything worked out ok back then so i wasnt too worried that it had to be detected after her saying that.. the heartbeat will be there when its time.. plus the doctors didnt seem worried otherwise i guess they would have sent me for another.

    Did they tell you how old it was from the scan?
    Maybe wait till about 8 weeks if you can if you want to have another scan? Best talking to you GP about it maybe?

    Good luck, I hope everything turns out ok for you. Ask for another scan to put your mind at rest. x

    Thanks Girls for your responses.

    To keep you updated, the Fert Specialist called me yesterday with the official ultrasound results. She said it's not looking good, talked about a curette (sp?), or maybe waiting another 10 days or so then go for another scan. So I spent the afternoon crying of course.

    Went for a hcg blood test this morning too as directed, and found levels up to 12,000 now. Dr said she'd be happy if they were above 2,500...????

    I'm still thinking though that it can't be good if an embryo measures 5 weeks when it's definitely 7 weeks.

    I have a feeling the Dr is going to suggest giving this pg away in anticipation of a miscarriage down the line.

    I guess I'll just wait to scan, or miscarry. This whole pg'cy thing really sucks sometimes. What happened to the 'OH MY GOD, I'M PG!!!!' happiness??? All I've felt is disappointment.

    Daisy - those HCG levels are great another lady I know IVF/FET too was told she had blighted ovum (her 2nd) about 7wks because no heartbeat -small embryo was to have D & C She insisted on another u/s -before Curette.When they found a heartbeat but baby was not measuring to dates - embryo was too small they said (as you said IVF is certain). Told not to hold onto much hope ! As this stage the embryo was so tiny only a few mm's so how can they be sure.

    She waited it out and just had 12week u/s - baby is growing well and all is okay

    Please don't give up yet. The waiting is more heartache but wait till the next scan.I will keep you in my thoughts. [-o< That is all goes well for you.
