Did you get the results from your HCG levels? A gestational sac wouldn't be present in your uterus during a normal pregnant until they are above 1500. Keep in mind that they start at a 1 and double every 3 days without fail in a viable pregnancy until you are about 8 weeks pregnant. After that your placenta takes over hormone production. What your doctor will probably do is do another blood draw in 3 days to make sure your levels are doubling. Also, another ultrasound in a week would tell a lot. If you are infact 5 weeks you should be able to see a gestational sac, fetal pole, and heartbeat between 6 and 6.5 weeks.
Checking your levels could tell a lot. If you do have an ectopic pregnancy levels could rise, but not double. If a miscarriage is happening or going to happen the levels would be slowly dropping. It's too early to assume anything until you know more. Try not to stress too much and just make sure they tell you the levels, are doing follow up blood draws (at least 2 more) and you have a follow up ultrasound.
Good luck let me know if you have any other questions I have been there and sorry for your previous loss =(
Sorry for you previous loss.....Just because your last pregnancy ended in miscarriage doesnt mean your next one will. Unless you have an under lying problem, 1 in 5pregnancies end in miscarriage. I had a miscarriage. I got pregnant the same week i lost my other baby.. I will be 7 months Sunday
Its possible its too early. Are they doing a repeat ultrasound?
Thankyou for your comments and again sorry for any previous loss too!! They only took my HCG levels this afternoon so the nurse told me she would call at some point tomorrow to tell me if they were a "normal" rate. The only reason i am concerned today is that there was nothing within my uterus. I was told before the internal scan took place that this could be to early to see anything and to tell anything just yet. I feel alot more positive about this pregnancy and hope all goes well even if i am only early days!! Fingers crossed for me though girls!! :-) Also congratulations "Cassandrajane" << sorry i don't know your name ;o) lol. Anyway i will keep you updated for what the nurse says tomorrow!
My name is actually Cassandra Jane hahah :) or Cassie for short LOL..
Just Have Hope :) And dont panic and stress :)...
Haha :) Thanks alot Cassie and Hearher too! fingers crossed.x
Are they giving you a repeat ultra sound?? Or taking your HCG again to see if its rising?
