kayleigh,  when did you first test positive?  If you tested positive a long time ago,  it sounds like you have a blighted ovum,  which will end in miscarriage.

If you never did know for sure you were pregnant,  or just very very recently found out,  it might just be that your dates are off and you're 5 1/2 weeks pregnant with a healthy pregnancy.
