Sometimes it's nice to get advice from experts with a lot of letter degrees behind their names, but other times, you just need to hear what another parent (with a M.O.M. behind her name) has done that has worked. You've got questions? These moms have answers.

This is my first pregnancy and I'm a little worried, I haven't had any spotting at all, and I haven't had any major morning sickness, just mild nausea and tiredness.

everybody pregnancy is different but when i got my ultrasound at 6 weeks thats all that was visible was the the sac but when i went back at about 9 weeks still nothing but a sac the doctor had even told me it not be a viable pregnancy i went and had another opinion because they were talking about giving me a d and c and now im 23 weeks so wait and see and if you still dont feel comfortable get a second opinion

I also went in for my first ultra sound and they only saw a sac, the sac measured 6w 1d.  I went in a week later and they saw a little heartbeat with the little one measuring 6w2d.  Since my periods are abnormal I didn't have a LMP date so our u/s was the only way to see how far along we were.  It was a little weird that the sac measured almost the same as the baby a week later, but the heartbeat was great to see and a great indicator.   3 more weeks should be a good amount of time for your pregnancy to move forward, I wouldn't worry just yet - 6 weeks is still pretty early :)

I agree with kelli050 - try not to worry, because 6 weeks is a bit early.  I'm on my second pregnancy and, due to a miscommunication with the receptionist at my doctor's office, was given an appointment when I was only 5 weeks along.  (The receptionist misheard the dates I gave her for my last period...) The doctor performed an ultrasound, but couldn't find anything.  He told me that it could simply be too early to see anything, but I couldn't help but think the worst.  I went back three weeks later, and, lo and behold, there was a little baby in there, with a strong heartbeat and measuring at 8 weeks, just like s/he should be!  So, try to stay positive!
