According to my LMP , i am 13 weeks pregnant. today i got my ultra sound done and there was just a sac. they didnot check the heart beat. Is this situation normal?

I'm sorry San, but I don't think that is a good sign. I have had MANY ultrasounds, both early and late with my 2 pregnancies, they ALWAYS check for a heartbeat. This is the one of the #1 indicators how the baby is doing. Also, but 13 weeks, there should definitely clearly be a baby, not just a sac. I am so sorry, I hope that I am wrong. :-(

That's not a good sign. I'm so sorry. 'Hopefully' you missed a period for some reason and are actually not far along at all and everything will be fine.



Typically speaking (been a long time, so forgive me if I'm off) a sac with no baby means that the baby just didn't develop or something happened to stop development somewhere super early along.

No. they said they will do it again in 2 or 3 weeks time. actually d ultra sound was meant for genetics testing. they wanted me to get checked thru camera but i refused. i m sooo worried. what does having a sac n not a baby imply??
