I had my first scan yesterday at what should be nearly 8 weeks. The tech showed us the embryo and sac but said there wasn't a heartbeat and the size dated 6 wks 1 day. I know that at 6 weeks you don't neccesarily see a heartbeat but I'm sure I'm nearly 8 weeks (and that I can't be 6 weeks because that would mean my pregnancy tested positive after only 7 days which I believe is impossible...). I've also had 3 separate incidences of very slight bright red bleeding (staining toilet paper but not underwear, no pain) last Thursday, Sunday and today. From everything I've read on forums I'm feeling that a misscarriage is inevitable, and not scared to hear the truth if that's the case. If anyone has been in a similar situation, with good or bad outcome, please reply. I live abroad and have no-one to talk about this to here. Earliest OB appointment I could get is for Thursday. Thanks.
