    Pregnancy sac not visible at 5.2 weeks

    I am so nervous right now. I had a vaginal ultra sound and they couldn't not see pregnancy sac. They said it still is quite early to see it. There was some black thing which she said could be the sac but it was not clear on the ultra sound.
    My Beta on 12dpoiui was 69 and after 2 day it was 214. My progesterone was 75 on 12dpoiui

    I have had 2 previous miscarriages. I have another ultra sound on 23 February.
    Is it normal not to see sac this early.
    Please reply.

    Shai I dont know what to tell you other than I will keep you in my thoughts and prayers. It was probably to early to see something. Please let us know how the ultrasound comes out next week. It looks like your numbers are doubling like they should that is good. Please keep your chin up.

    Thanks stpeachey79. I got myself a pregnancy test and it came dark positive right away. I don't know what's going on. I can't take another miscarriage.
    Hope everything is OK.

    Hi Shai, I dont know if this is any good to you, but I had my first u/s at 8 weeks and 5 days and the sac was the size of an egg, the baby was the size of a raisin, so if you're before this time frame, its not surprizing the sac isn't showing yet. Also, keep in mind they estimate how far along you are by the first day of your last period. That not when the baby started to develop. If you ovulate late in the month, you may not be as far along as you think. Dont worry yourself over this, you'll drive yourself nuts.

    I had the vaginal ultrasounds at 5, 6 and 12 weeks. The one at week 5 was on a small black area kinda oddly round. So maybe the black area they saw was it! I will be praying for you! Keep us posted.

    From what I've read, it's not picked up until 7 weeks during ultrasound so don't worry too much. good luck.

    Re: Pregnancy sac not visible at 5.2 weeks

    Hi Everbody, I just came back from my ultrasound appoinment and i got to see the yolk sac . They still could not see the fetal pole. She said my uterus is tilted and the sac is too far away to get a closer look so they couldn't see the heart beat. I have another appoinment next week.

    Thanks everybody.

    Unhappy Re: Pregnancy sac not visible at 5.2 weeks

    Well this is not all i have to worry about. They took my blood for HCG levels and they were 5500. They expected more at 6 weeks. I have to go in for another ultrasound on friday.

    I just don't know what to do anymore!!

    Has anybody had 5500 HCG levels at 6 weeks and had a successful pregnancy?
