This is one of the most common questions on here. Someone saying there 5 weeks n the doctor not seeing anything. I promise. Hcg kicks in differently in everyone. Ur probably fine.  Best of luck.

You are probably earlier than that. Just keep checking it. My 3rd was caught by chance at 3 weeks in a doctor's office hcg test but didn't see on u/s for over a month!

My hcg level at 5 weeks was 320! And nothing was seen at 5w 5d on u/s just a sac. I also had some spotting between 5&7 weeks as well, but my baby was fine, he's 9 months old now! Hope all turns out well for you, please keep us posted on your results :)

I went to my Ob today to have my 2nd transvaginal. i really prayed a lot.. and my prayer works! (thanks God) they already saw my sac. but there's still anything there, my Ob says it's to early to see the little peanut...my Hcg level also doubled w/ 5154.. i can't stop my tears!!! i need to go back after 1 wk for another scan and for the heartbeat...hoping for a better results... thanks again.. i'll keep u posted!!!

That's a great hcg level!! And I bet the next time you go for your ultrasound there will be a heartbeat! Like I said, my 5w u/s showed nothing but a sac, never saw a heartbeat until late in the 6th week.
