Hi, I don't belong here but I had a scan at 6w 2days due to some bleeding.  Abdominal only and saw the sac by no fetal pole or anything else.  Estimated sac size was about 5w 4 days. I was so stressed for the next 3 weeks til my next scan but that little sac is now a strapping 13 month old who stresses me out for entirely different reasons! There is so much variance in what each pregnancy will show at a scan that early.  Good luck and try not to stress to much  bbighug.gif

LittlePom so glad to hear that it all turned out well for you.
I had my scan on Friday at 6w3d and they could also only see a sack and measured it to be only about 5w3d . Also had some spotting last night and this morning so a little freaked out. Good to hear some positive experiences though . If 5w Is correct it changes my due date to Christmas Day !!

I don't belong here (yet, my dates put me as being due on 2/1 but will likely be delivered before Christmas). Just wanted to say that I had 2x dating scans last time around and I didn't have to pay for either? I am sure if it is being done for medical reasons (ie actual dates, bleeds etc) the first one is always bulk billed. A second one may or may not be depending on the results? With DD I had a scan at 5w0d (we didn't have a clue with dates) but because they only saw a sac I had to go back at 7w0d. They bulk billed that one too as first wasn't conclusive.

Am booked in on the Fri before Mothers Day which will be 6w1d and that is being bulk billed too. Wasn't sure if they would see a heartbeat but PPs have given me hope we might. Hate the dildo-cam tho!
Also to PP who had the 33 day cycles...I was the same with DD. Had 35 day cycles. Told the sonographer that LMP as on xx date, but I have 35 day cycles. She was concerned with why I was measuring a week behind, but when you account for the extra week before typical ovulation it was spot on

I ended up having another scan today after some bleeding, cramping and clots this weekend. The bean had grown quite a lot (the sonographer didn't actually tell me how long it was, but it was easy to see on the monitor that it was much bigger than 11 days ago) and it still had a hb of 164. No clues as to why I had bleeding, but all I can do is be happy it is still in there ticking along and cross fingers that it stays on this good path.

This one was done in hospital so it was bulk billed. The first one was also bulk billed at a private place for some reason, I think they have a deal with my GP practice.

I forgot to update.Had my scan on the 23rd and bubs measured 7w 5d (im 8w 4d now) with a heart rate of 171. All looked good. I had some bleeding yesterday but nothing today. Im having another scan next week. I need to see progress this time, rather than getting bad news at the 12 week scan like the last 2 times. Im feeling good about this one though original.gif

Hi Girls,

Hope you are all well... had my first u/s yesterday and measured 2 days further than i thought at 7weeks 1 day..... had a lil heartbeat of 132bpm (hoping thats normal?)

Had a lil bit of worrying news about a subchronic heamatoma (1.3cm in diameter) really really worried as I did a dr google and the news is so frightening  

Hope your all going well x

Hi Erin n ant I am unable to pm you for some reason. But I did have a bleed at 5weeks and 9 wks when they found my sub chorionic haematoma below. Can't remember the size but just that it was moderate. It had resolved by u/s 10 days later. Their main concern was that it didn't get bigger as it could affect the placental attachment. Speak with your doctor and get a follow up scan and hopefully it will alleviate your worries. Good luck
Just read they occur in about 3% pregnancies and most common cause of first trimester bleeding. Considered small if less than 20% of size of gestational sac and large if greater than 50% gestational sac. So I think depending on your sac size yours is smallish??
