    I'm a little confused and wondered if anyone can help? I've gone for an emergency scan today, and they couldn't find anything on an abdominal scan. They did an internal scan and they found the sac? And there was 3 small white circles, it was difficult to see if it was one bigger circle. Even the sonographer was confused so she called 2 more doctors and they couldn't be sure either. So they've rescheduled for 10 days time, they think I could be much earlier on than I thought. They're guessing around 5 weeks. But I got my bfp on the 22nd of Feb!? Is there anyway I got a SUPER early bfp or is it more likely that this pregnancy isn't progressing? I'm so confused as I thought I was between 7 and 8 weeks pregnant. I'd love to hear of any stories similar to this and their outcome. I've told myself that it's not successful to prepare for the worst in 10 days time when they scan me again.

    Sorry to say I don't think this will have a good outcome. If you got a positive on Feb 22, even if you were super early and only 3 weeks along, you'd still be 7 weeks.. at 7 weeks you'd see a little blob with a heartbeat. I'm so sorry you're going through this xxx

    I wish I could offer you some reassurance and of course there is always a chance things will progress, we aren't trained professionals. Last year I went for a scan and I had my dates at about 9 weeks. They had to do a vaginal ultrasound and although we saw a little blob with a heartbeat, my date was put back by 11 days. That's almost 2 weeks out.. nobody said anything at the time and looking back I should have known. I went for my 12 week scan and my baby had stopped growing around 7 weeks. I pray things are different for you x

    So I miscarried last night.

    Just thought I'd update my post incase anyone goes through anything similar in the future.


    Yes, looking back on my first scan I should have realised being 3 weeks off on dates is highly unlikely. Considering I got a BFP almost 5 weeks before, to be told I'm only showing around 5 weeks on a scan.

    I have a follow up scan on tuesday and I've been told to keep it. So I'll know for sure then.

    Thanks for your advice and honesty.
