You cannot see a sac until you are about 5 1/2 weeks pregnant. When I had IUI I was monitored closely because of higher risk of ectopic and previous mc's. The RE didn't do a scan until the 5 1/2 week mark and that is when we saw the sac and it's location.

Yep, I think it's just a wee bit too soon yet, keep positive, sure it will all be fine!

At 4 weeks, it's probably too early to see anything. 1100 I believe is good. Are they planning on checking your blood hcg levels to see if they are doubling??

Hi, thanks for all your support, I am going back to hospital tomorrow morning when they are going to do another blood test to check the hgc levels. I read that 1100 was a good level but the doctor seems to think she should be able to see a sac, fingers crossed she is wrong and all is well. Again,thanks to u all I feel mire reassured now x

Yep, too soon.  My doc doesn't do a u/s until at least 6 weeks.  I have known MANY people that have not seen anything at that stage.  I just don't think you would really.  I wouldn't worry.  I'm sure everything is fine.  At 4wk 3days, you have only just missed your period so again, it's just too early.

It was an internal scan that I had, do you still feel that it is unlikely for anything to be detected? Thanks again
