viable pregnancy?????????????

Hi guys, i really need help.

I found out i was pregnant after taking a one month break from ivf. first beta was 2183, this was at my RE's office. they scheduled me for an ultrasound the next day. Which showed a 8mm gestational sac. He searched around for awhile and found a yolk sac. He said due to my infertility history it looks normal but its not guaranteed...
The next evening I went to the bathroom to have my long awaited bmi(sorry for the tmi), so brown blood on the tissue, and a string like clot. Made my dh take me to the emergency room. they took another hcg which was abt 5301 within 48 hrs. by the time the did a vaginal exam the blood was dried up and gone. The ER doctor says she sees a gestational sac and yolk sac. The sent me to a ultra sound technician. who said she found the gestational sac but did not see the yolk sac. I am measuring at 5 weeks and 1 day. Please help me. is it possible for me to be this far along without a yolk sac???? Plus i just have really dull cramps once in while, its barely noticeable.

Ultrasounds soo early on cause so much confusion and stress. I know that I had an experience with my last preg that at 6 weeks they could see one sac and not the other-  i dont remember which one though. Your levels have gone up and that seems like a good thing to me.....I think at this point it is important to try not to stress about it and go day by day. If you have consistent red bleeding - I would be concerned. I would also demand and ultrasound in a few weeks to verift viability. My doc sent me to get a viability US at 10 weeks and the baby was all there clearly - no questions. Hugs to you.

don't worry. I saw only a gestational sac and yolk sac, but no fetal pole or heartbeat at my 6w 4d u/s. Still waiting on u/s next week to hopefully see a heartbeat! While many women have had luck seeing both sacs and a heartbeat at 5-6 weeks, many others have to wait longer to see anything.  My doc tells me that u/s in combination with HCG levels are used to assess viability.  Your numbers are going up which is a great sign!  Also, both your RE and ER doc saw a yolk sac.  For whatever reason, the u/s tech may have not been able to find it...doesn't it wasn't there though!!!  Good luck...keep us posted!  Praying for you!

Hi guys, went in for a check up,saw the baby and the heart
Beat. The only problem is that the baby has a low heart rate of 76 bpm. Really worried

Unfortunately really low heart rates such as 76 BPM does not sound good at all - and I would be quite worried too. You need to stay positive right now for you and baby. I am so sorry this is happening to you. I wish you all the best.  I will keep you in my thoughts and prayers. (Hugs)

If you are that early on it's normal to have a slow heartbeat.  Most docs don't even give the heartbeat at the first ultrasound.  Instead they just tell you there is a heartbeat.  No need to worry yet, and best of luck to you.
