3 Months Postpartum, 5 Weeks Pregnant (Anonymous)

I’m 20 years old, young I know, and I got pregnant with my baby boy on my birthday haha I had a healthy pregnancy and it all went great. He was born May 24, 2015. Well after all of the after birth bleeding I got a regular period after 2 months had passed. Then the next month my period never came so I thought I was just adjusting to the changes. I did start worrying a little because me and the father weren’t being careful, so I took a pregnancy test and it came up negative, so I went to get on birth control 2 weeks later and the doctor told me that I was pregnant so we scheduled an ultrasound since I had no idea how far along I was. When it came time for my ultrasound all he could find was the sac.. he measured it and said I was 5 weeks along which honestly didn’t really add up cuz I figured I would have been like 8 weeks along but my body could still be messed up right? well I started having very light bleeding, no clots, mild cramps. Am I even pregnant?? Idk what to think or how to feel and my bf left me and I have no friends due to my bf so I have nobody to talk to..I need advice ladies please

    First of all, congratulations on your baby and your pregnancy :) It is not uncommon to only see a sac at the 5 week ultrasound (in fact that is 100% normal!). It is also normal to have a little bit of spotting in the beginning. If you get more spotting (bright red and like a period) then you should be seen. I would go back for another ultrasound in a couple of weeks and by then they should see the baby. I am happy for you. I’m sorry about your babies father, but you can do this :) Keep us posted.

    Hi love,

    Congrats on your first bubba! I’m so sorry to hear you’re going it alone. I went through a similar thing (after a miscarriage though, not a baby) where I had a scan that showed a 5 week empty sac when I thought I should have been further along. In my case, I was actually pregnant (about to give birth in 2 weeks!) and the dates were just out of whack because my cycle was abnormal after the pregnancy. Unfortunately it just might mean waiting a couple of weeks and scanning again (then if there is a baby it will definitely have a heart beat and you’ll know for sure)
    Alternatively, it could be a “missed miscarriage” and you have already passed the pregnancy tissue when you bled. Did the doctor take bloods to see if you’re HCG was still rising? Good luck, keep us posted, and I hope it’s the result you want and you that you have support and love around you to help through whatever is ahead of you. Enjoy your baby xxxx
