Ok I am 5 weeks 5 days pregnant and I had the most horrible experience today. I had some spotting went to er. The doctor was just Awful. I had sonogram he came in with results and said there's SOMETHING in your uterus but we don't know if it's alive or dead.no heart tones. And told me nothing else. Other than I could be too early. I feel so upset. I don't know what to think or do. Prayers for me and please tell me y'all's opinions.

I have bled the entire first trimester with both of my pregnancies. At 5 weeks it is hard to tell with ultrasound sometimes. Call your ob and have them check it out. The ER while great for most things are not terribly skilled with determining what's up with pregnancy. If it's just spotting try not to worry about it.

ERs are notoriously bad at giving info about things like this. And unfortunately, at not quite 6 weeks, there's not much they can see with an ultrasound, and even less they can do to help you.
Sorry you had such a scare. But remember spotting can be normal in early pregnancy- it happened to me and many other BG mamas who continued to have healthy LOs. It's so hard, but it's a wait-and-see kind of thing. Prayers.
ETA: If you haven't already, make an appointment with your OB. They can check and see if your HcG levels are rising properly.

If your dates match up you should be okay. Idk why the doctor would tell you that..when I had my miscarriage and went for a sonogram I was supposed to be 8wks and 3 days and the baby showed 5wks it was very obvious...but I feel your okay.I will pray for you

O man! I'm so sorry to hear that's happening.. That's something we all dread hearing.. Yes you will definitely get a prayer from me! I think 5weeks is still to early to find a heart beat.. I think I was like 10weeks.. Let me Google it for you real quick.. d3e00c9cee00737a8bba9b16e2c9861c.png Hopefully that helps answer some questions.. I'd suggest to maybe go to a different ER/DOC and request to have a transvaginal sonogram I believe those can detect the heartbeat sooner than just a regular sonogram. Goodluck n I'm sending a prayer your way!

Also my hcg was 45,000 so it's the only positive answer I felt I got.
