I am sorry to hear what you have gone through. It is often normal not to see anything on ultrasound at 5 weeks. Normally a gestational sac with a yolk sac appears at about 5 weeks (calculated from your last missed period date) of pregnancy and can be well visualized by 6 weeks on a transvaginal (through a vagina) ultrasound (so it can be missed at 5 weeks). Fetal heart beat usually appears by 8-9 weeks. This is why it is best to repeat the scan a week or two later. Meanwhile monitor the HCG levels at 48 hours intervals. If they rise and almost double in 48 hours, then chances of pregnancy carrying forward are high. Please discuss with your gynecologist. Take care!
