Tilted Cervix and Ultrasound and no baby. 8 weeks
Would a tilted cervix make it hard to see the baby on an ultrasound? I am 8 weeks pregnant and they could not see a heartbeat.

i assume the uterus is tilted? were they able to see anything at all? if they could see the embryo, then they would find the heartbeat. if they found nothing at all, either they couldn't get a good angle or nothing ever developed. possibilities are:
1) tilted uterus prevented a good look. this actually happened to my friend. they saw nothing with a transvaginal ultrasound but were able to finally see something with an abdominal ultrasound.
2) your dates can be off. if this is the case, it may have been too soon to see a heartbeat. although, if it were a healthy pregnancy they should have seen something- at least a fetal pole and yolk sac.
3) you may be having a chemical pregnancy. your hormone levels indicate a pregnancy, but the fetus failed to develop.

good luck. i hope you will be having a follow up ultrasound in a week or 2 to find out what's going on.
