7 week and not embryo and heartbeat it is normal?

Hi everyone, we got a us last Monday and the tech did not tell us exactly what's going but.the only thing that she said was that my gf is seven weeks pregnant and the doctor will tell us more I asked her if everything was fine and she said yes.  At that point I was relief, then the next day in our appointment the doctor said that we need other us because the last one didn't show embryo or heartbeat and possible because it is to small or is hide in the sac. Or my gf is not pregnant, really when she said that I felt really bad also my gf was crying that break my heart. Tomorrow is our second us and I pray and beg God that everything goes well. Please advice and pray with me we want this baby...

Sometimes the embryo can implant later than expected and cause your dates to be off... if you are off even by just a week it could be too early for the sac and heartbeat.  Try not to worry - have they checked her HCG levels to see if they are rising?  Good Luck

Typically you get your HCG tested every two days to see if it is doubling which is signs of a healthy pregnancy - She very well could have ovulated later - implanted later than you calculated.... If she was 7 weeks it means that the baby is 5 weeks - do you know the first day of her last cycle - how long hers typically last?  You can use that information and google a pregnancy tracker and it will tell you how far along you should be.  Good Luck at your scan tomorrow - from what you state above you have been to the drs two days in a row and tomorrow us will be three days - and the have not taken her blood level yet??? Maybe you can request that be done tomorrow and then two days following to see if they are rising...

well from personal experience this pregnancy...we went for first ultrasound and supposedly was 6wks 1 day, well no heartbeat or fetal pole (only yolk sac) Went back one week later and have heartbeat and fetal pole. Everything appeared to be doing okay. My periods are really irregular sometimes at 34-36 days apart; so my doc said i could have ovulated extremely late. when i went a week later...measured 6wks 2 days; so i was a full week off of mine. Hope all goes well...keep us updated

Thanks ladies for your support really thank you for taking the time sharing your experiences.... Well about my gf period what I know are irregular but the time don't know, but they told us that she was 7 weeks and only the sac it is possible that the bb was hide orvtoo small or maybe the sac was too tick? Well that was the dc said also said that maybe my gf wasn't pregnant... Please only few hours to the us and I really scare but have my faith on high. Please pray with me on this...

Trying to concieve (conceive) is not as easy as my 8th grade health teacher made it out to be.  I am sorry you are going through this.  I had my share of issues - my first husband and I went off the pill and just thought I would get pregnant right way - within a month I was at a fertility specialist getting my 7th laperscopy surgery - over the years I had ovarian cysts and endometrosis.... this time I had a solid cyst that need to be removed - they cleaned up my tubes and told me to take an ovulation predictor kit to see when I would ovulate then try - turned out I did not ovulate and was diagnosed with polycystic ovarian syndrome... We used clomid and an hcg trigger shot and we got out first positive- I lost that baby girl about 9 weeks in - it was tough as we had already heard and saw her heart beat on 3 ultrasounds prior to the one where there was no longer a hb.  Broken and feeling like I failed as a wife and mother - September 11th 2001 came and that would have been my 12 week regular first check up with my OB - I think I was the only person who showed up for their appointment that night... despite what was going on in the world I was so devestated by my loss I really could not comprehend much that day....but he said I was good to try again - my husband and I were fighting as sex was a timed chore - but we did get a positive the next cycle - October 2001 - she will be 8 years old on Monday.  My husband and I were going through a rough patch - we were not trying for another , I was told by my fertility specialist I could not get pregnant without medical assistance and I was on the birth control patch when I found out in April of 2004 I was 8 weeks pregnant.  Both pregnancies were high risk - majority of time in the hosptial - so my husband and I agreed to have my tubes tied - I changed my mind on the operating table - he told the drs to go ahead that I was medicated and I already signed the ppwk.  Needless to say that sealed the fate of our marriage - Now I am remarried to a wonderful man who has no children of his own - we did IVF and our first cycle failed, but our second was positive - we are now again, high risk, but expecting our little girl in July - but most likely sooner.  I wanted to share this with you - as things do not always go as we want them, nor do we understand why things happen as they do. I am not an overly religious person but I do believe that there is a plan for us all and things are meant to happen for reasons beyond our current understanding.  Please be there for your gf and you need to grieve as well as you did suffer a loss too.  I wish you all the best - and don't lose hope - sometimes it can be a hard road - but it is well worth the travel!

I felt really bad, my gf she doesn't share too much her emotions, she is hard with since she got pregnant she changed a lot with me, like don't touch me or don't speak to me all that kind of things I thought is part of the pregnancy and the hormones, also she told me once that she doesn't love anymore and the only thing that keep together was the bb... Right now I don't what to do, we plan to live together in July already spoke with landlord about it that July is my last month also we got a place.. Now I am alone not place where to stay not gf not baby, and I broken heart. After all still love this woman besides she does or say to me, really thought that after the bb she will be back to normal right now I'm lost...
But thank you for sharing with me and your time to write me back I'm really appreciate it. God bless your family and everything that you guys do...
