Positive pregnancy test after IVF, first ultrasound today but can only see a sac, I should be about 4-5 weeks..

I had an embryo transfer on Oct 28th, 2010 and on Nov 7th got a positive pregnancy test...have had 5 blood test so far levels are rising.  Last level was at 2729 on Sunday Nov 13th, however today I went in for yet more blood work and 1st ultrasound and the doctor could only see a small sac.  No yolk sac.  He said it might be too early.  He wants me to come back in next Wed the 24th.  Waiting to see where my levels are today but I'm really worried at this point.  I feel very pregnant but I also know that this doesn't mean anything at this point...I also had a lot of spotting and cramping the week after the embryo transfer which has now really gone away but still very worried....

I wish I could say something to make you not worry, but I know that's impossible.  

As your doctor said, you need another ultrasound to be sure there is development occuring.  Until then, there is not much to do BUT worry, I guess.

Good luck, and keep us informed.
