Question High HCG level but no baby on Ultrasound!! ????

Hey y'all.
I went to the doctor on Friday (6-1-12) and there was no baby on the ultra sound, I was giving a regular one and a vaginal one. Still nothing. My doctor said I will probably miscarry but the weird thing is, my blood work came back perfect and my HCG levels were at 54,000!! I am really scared and nervous because if I miscarry, this will be my SECOND in less than FIVE months I have add very little bleeding once for less than 24 hours and no cramping. I "feel" pregnant. The last one didnt feel right, but this one does. I go back on Monday (tomorrow) for more blood work. I am terrified I will get bad news.

Is this possible??? Please help!

Re: High HCG level but no baby on Ultrasound!! ????

Hi JustJLinn,
I actually had the exact same thing happen to me! I had a missed period and my HCG level was elevated. My MD did a pregnancy test and told me I was indeed pregnant, had given me a due date and the very last thing in the appt. was to do an ultrasound. First we did a abdominal US that didn't show a fetus. Then we did a transvaginal ultrasound which revealed a ectopic pregnancy. (tubal preg.) I was 7.5 weeks and had experienced no pain, discomfort or bleeding. I was given 1 injection of Methotrexate that made me expell the embryo in approx. 2-3 days. Also there is a condition called Hydatiform Mole (molar pregnancy). In the early stages of this condition, this can't be distinguished from normal pregnancy. Please keep your appt. because there has got to be a reason why your HCG level is elevated. Hope all goes well.

Thank you. I am sorry about your loss. My Dr checked me for ectopic and everything was normal. So, I don't have that. I go back tomorrow morning for more blood work and hopefully something will be there.
