Heavenleigh that is totally normal. Scanners can not pick anything up until you are at least 6 weeks or more. I wouldn't worry about it, it doesn't mean anything is wrong. Your doctor should have explained why he could not see anything and put you mind at ease.

YOu are grand , now worrying is a natural part of pregnancy but you have to accept you don't have complete control over it so sit back and enjoy thye trip and just do the best you can. MY blob picture is hanging up in my sitting room and when people ask whats that? i am like elhhhhhh hello it a blob are you thick :o0 :o0 :o0 :o0 . SO moral of the story be proud of your blob and stop worrying

That´s cool bellabella :o0 I got a printout of my scan as well...you can only see a wee darker spot (2mm big only). But your posts really reassured me girls, i was so worried when i left doc as she didn´t even say it was normal not to see nothing yet...was so worried :o( Have another appointment next week and hope to see something then...And after that i am sure i will change my doc for the next appointment...

Totally normal there really is feck all there at 5 weeks (you are only 3 weeks pregnant) I had an internal scan, don't even ask, as they thought I had miscarried at 5 and 7 weeks and by 7 weeks you could see a heartbeat which was nice but not worth having a scanner shoved inside you for.

Thats right Moet, i had an internal scan there as well a few days ago...but doc only said she can see nothing yet and the stupid cow (sorry,but true) didn´t even tell me it seems to be normal that nothing can be seen yet, so i went home all worried....

Hi Bella, If you don't mind me asking. How come you get so many scans. Did you have a m/c previously or going privately or something. I'm hoping on my next pregnancy i'll get a lot of early scans too.

I think I'm right in saying they also go in for internal scans way more than is the case here. So at least that's something, Hairy Molly! Once you're had a m/c you should automatically be given an early scan - this is what I was told anyway. Don't be worrying about that :xxx
