Anyone else had an u/s at 6 weeks with no h/r found but hcg level still high?
Lmp 5/3, Took home test 6/6 positive. Had hcg test 6/7 came back at 34211. Had u/s 6/20 measured crown to rump at 6 weeks 1 day but no heart rate. Was told I lost the baby. Went for another hcg test on 6/20  88582. It did not double but has increased. No spotting, just normal pregnancy symptoms? She want to schedule a d&c!!! I told her I'd think about it and get back to her. Any advice?

I would not do the d&c yet. I would wait maybe another week and try the ultrasound again. Especially if your HCG levels are rising. I am an ultrasound tech and I had a patient last week that was 6 weeks and now heart rate was seen, she came back a week later at 7 weeks and heart was beating like crazy. I would only start to worry if your HCG levels start to decline.

Hope this helps.

Somehow hit post. So anyway at 7 weeks they finally saw a baby! So give it time. Drs are not always right. U want the baby..listen to ur body, you've lived in it all your life ;-)

No D&C!!! Mine didn't show either. It was there 3 days later. That early lots of things can factor in. Good luck to you!
