    Exclamation No fetus, empty sac at 7 weeks- help!

    So I found out on April 14th that I was pregnant, I had been reallly tired and had sore breasts- so I took a test that morning. I had an ultrasound the next day because I had no idea how far along I could me. They said that the sac measured 5 weeks 1 day. They could not get a fetal pole. 2 weeks later (April 29th) I did another ultrasound and they said the sac measured 7 weeks, but there was still not a fetal pole or heart rate and saw a "questionable small yolk sac". They also said it could possibly be a "blighted ovum" where the fetus does not develop. I had my HCG levels checked on May 1st and they were 39,000- which I'm not sure what that tells. Now I have to wait until May 9th to get another ultrasound. While I wait I still feel super pregnant (nauseous, tired, sore breasts) but am SO scared that the baby didn't develope and I'll have a miscarriage.
    Has anyone had something similar happen? Maybe I'm not as far along as the sac measures? Is there any hope??

    Update: On May 9th I had my 3rd ultrasound. The baby is fine! I have a healthy 9 week old baby with a strong heartbeat. I have a tilted uterus, so maybe that made it hard to see before! If anyone has a similar situation, don't give up hope!!

    I am sorry that I cannot give you any advise about what is happening but I have heard that it is possible that the fetus could still develop. I hope that your next scan on the 9th brings you super good news.

    I am going through a very similar story. I am 7 weeks pregnant and had my first u/s today. The tech could not see the fetus, but he saw the sac. He also mentioned that my uterus is tilted. How did your pregnancy end up?? I am just waiting for my blood results and praying for good and positive news.

    Dont do the D and C until you confirm it with an ultrasound!

    I would agree. See an ultrasound before you do the D&C

    I just want to give an update. I actually started to miscarry on my own. I canceled the D&C for tomorrow and will wait to see if everything passes naturally. Thanks for the help

    Re: No fetus, empty sac at 7 weeks- help!

    Momtobe2: I was 7 1/2 weeks along with my daughter when they told me that there was no "Fetal Pole" in the ultrasound. He asked if I was absolutely positive of my last menstrual period date. I was 100% positive of my cycles and lengths and I said so. The tech insisted the best thing would be a D/C because of the empty sac - the ULTRASOUND TECH. Not a Dr. My first pregnancy flew by with no real morning sickness, yet that pregnancy I had the most god awful sore breasts and nausea from the first day I missed my period. I KNEW my pregnancy was viable.

    I pretty much told this tech to stick things where they don't shine. I left that hospital's practice when the Dr also said I should just have an D/C as well. At 10 1/2 weeks gestation, I had another ultrasound- A beautiful baby in there, heart beating, perfect size.

    I hope my story helps- I also have a severely tipped uterus, which the midwife attributed to my "hiding" baby girl.
