I found out 2 weeks ago that I am pregnant. At my doctor visit we were not able to hear a heartbeat on doppler. It seems I havent had a period in 2 mths. By pelvic exam the Dr. says my uterus feels like I could be 6 weeks pregnant. I went for a vaginal ultrasound a few days after and was told the sac and yolk were visible but no embryo and I guess no heart sounds. She told me it may be too early and I should come back in about 1 week.Ultrasound measurements were determined I am 5 weeks 2 days pregnant. Now today I called and talked to my dr's nurse practioner (my doc is on vacation)about the ultrasound report. She says since no heartbeats were heard and embryo was not visible (at 5 weeks) it looks like I may have had a miscarriage. From what Ive heard it is very likely that 5 weeks 2 days is too early to detect any of this so I dont know why she would just tell me that. I said to her that it could be possible its just too early to tell and she said thats why I need to come back next week. I dont know if she wanted to assume a miscarriage so early for me because she thinks its best to be pessimistic about this. I quess my questions are: At 5 weeks preg. is it usual to not hear a heartbeat or see the embryo on vaginal ultrasound? What is seeing the sac and yolk mean but no embryo? Could I have had a miscarriage without any symptoms of one (cramping, bleeding, etc..)? How long after a miscarriage would I have symptoms of it? This is my 3rd pregnancy. With both of them I never felt tired early on, had tender breasts, or morning sickness until at least after 2 mths preg. I did have increased appetite. This time mt breast are swollen (not tender) and I dont have much of an appetite but my stomach always looks bloated. Do you always have increased appetite early in pregnancy? I know this is a lot of questions, I hope someone can help me. I am worried sick. Thanks so, so much. I would appreciate any info at all. Take care, Heather
