8 wek sac and 6 week fetus

hi im really worried as i went for an early scan and they sed that the sac was measuring at 8 weeks but the fetul pole was measuring at 5-6 weeks and they cudnt find a heart beat, the nure sed it looks like the bby stopped growing at 6 weeks ????? i have read that sometime u cant see a heart beat till 7 weeks and that if ur having twins the sac can be a bit bigger but was fobbed off with 'the chances of that are so low and ther is no point in gettin ur hopes u' has anyone everheard of this type of thing and if so what has happend??????

thanks x

poor thing, I have seen this go both ways, I have had this happen to me personally but our ultrasound shown no head developed so we were in the process of miscarrying.  I do remember reading on here about a women with a similar issue and they told her she was likely miscarrying but it just turned out the baby was off in measurements.  She went back for another u/s and everything was caught up and they got a heartbeat.  When is your next appointment?

i read that post as well the baby court up in size a couple weeks later. try to relax as much as you can i do hope all is well. and if not the case have your gyny run test on you even ask 4 a laposcamy dye test in case you have cysts or polyps that causes misscariages.. good luck lynne from the uk.:D it sholdn't take that long to concieve (conceive) there has to be an underlying problem..

Keep in mind too every woman is different so in some women they can hear the heartbeat earlier than in others.  Some women I have read haven't heard it until 10-11th week.
