Scanning so early...: One's Ob-Gyn doctor can help with such concerns because normally women don't need to get scanned so early. Perhaps this is a special situation, which is why one's doctor can help with this. In general, many early pregnancies miscarry as a normal part of human life. The early embryos that progress successfully on their own... those are the ones that become babies.
