Patient :I am about 5-6 weeks pregnant and had an ultrasound yesterday as I have a history of miscarriage and ectopic pregnancy. The doctor has now referred me to a more advanced ultrasound as his could not see anything. What worries me is that he didn't say whether this was normal and now I am having panic attacks that I am going to lose yet another pregnancy. Is it normal to see nothing using a normal ultrasound machine this early in pregnancy? All I saw was a black empty space and just need some kind of reassurance from someone to get me through the weekend until I get my scan next week.
