If your OB didn't find anything then that means that you either had a miscarriage or there wasn't anything there from the start.

if nothing at all was there then probably no miscarriage unless you had a chemical pregnancy. I had a miscarriage and the ultrasound showed small empty sack, but no baby. It is interesting to note that two or three weeks later i had another ultrasound because of unexplained bleeding and i very much pregnant, everything that should be there was there.

A lot of times when ultrasound shows just a sac a number of things can be the cause.It could be you're not as far gone as you thot or you're overweight with fat deposits around your mid or you have a tilted uterus. This is why a lot of OBs these days ask you to come back after a couple of days just to be sure. Check the website Misdiagnosed Miscarriage on the left; stories abound.

If you have had a miscarriage and are being sent for an ultrasound what are they expecting to see and will it tell you that you were pregnant or show any signs of previously being preg?

They could be checking for any tissue that was not expelled during the miscarriage. They may be able to tell that you were pregnant depending on how long ago the miscarriage happened, and if anything was left behind.

An ultrasound at 6 weeks should show a fetal heartbeat, if there was a fetal heartbeat you're not miscarrying.. It's probable you estimated your due date wrong.

Can an ultrasound at 7 weeks pregnant cause you to cramp and bleed?

It could be a miscarriage, although bleeding shouldn't be of concern if the fetus is properly developing. I suggest you go see your ob-gyn for another ultrasound in order to find out if the bleeding is serious. Ultrasounds don't cause blood or cramps. Take care, T. Hawk
