Can being constipated affect my pregnancy

Im supposed to be 12 weeks pregnant and my hcg levels keep rising but they see no sac no fetus no nothing but my levels keep going up.

Hi there.  No, I don't think being constipated would affect your pregnancy.  Here is a tough question, but I'm just going to ask it, they are sure it's not a tubal pregnancy?  Sometimes risking hcg and spotting can be a tubal pregnancy.  Ugh, I sure hope not.  When do you go back to the doctor?

They said my tubes are clear and they dont why my hcg levels are still going up.. My doctor thinks its because im serverly constipated so much that all they see on the US..i go back to the doctor Monday..
I'm just not sure how being constipated would affect HCG levels as that wouldn't produce the hormone the tests are picking up.  Oh, are you saying that they are having trouble viewing anything on the ultrasound due to being constipated?  As in, your bowel is full and that is blocking their view.  That makes sense and could be the case.  Please let us know what happens at the appointment today.  I'll be thinking of you!
Yes everytime i go in for a u/s they ask me if im constipated then the doctor comes in tells me they dont see anything and they take my blood and ask me to come back.. Its starting to get annoying because i feel pregnant
