Just remain calm and see that this gets prompt follow-up with a doctor's opinion. The office should have immediately set a new appointment with another sonogram and a doctor should always be there it diagnose pregnancy. Don't be too alarmed at 8 weeks the baby is only a little bigger than a grain of rice so you should be able to see something the next time they perform an ultrasound! Good Luck and God Bless! You are not having an ectopic as this is when the baby develops in a tube which then has to be removed. Answer: You must know by now what is happening. However, if not, your hormone levels needed to be checked to make sure the hCG and estrogen, progesterone are at the appropriate levels. If they are, there may still be a pregnancy. If not, the sac may be empty - the sac developed, however, the fetus did not.

Can you get an ultrasound at three weeks?

At 3 weeks pregnant, it would be nearly impossible to see anything at all. It is possible that you may see a very small gestation sac, but nothing beyond that. Most doctors will not do an ultrasound this early.

How do you know if you had a chemical pregnancy?

Only a doctor can diagnose this with an ultrasound. The body will think you are pregnant but the ultrasound will show up an empty sac or nothing.

How bad is it to get pregnant early after an eptopic treated with methotrexate?

Well it is not beneficial to get pregnant right away. A body needs time to heal from the ectopic pregnancy, particularly if anything punctured, tore or ruptured. If you are pregnant again there is nothing you can do about that. Some women will have twins where one baby is ectopic and the other is not. So she delivers a healthy single baby after the ectopic pregnancy is resolved. If you are only concerned about the chemical having been in your body do not fear. It goes through the body within days.

Hcg levels are 2300 but nothing showing in ultrasound The radiologist doesn't see an ectopic prenancy What can this mean?

It is most likely an ectopic pregnancy and the embryo is still too small to be seen by an ultrasound. At that HCG level, your uterus lining should have thickened by now and made changes to prepare for the baby. If it has not done this, it is usually ectopic. I just went through this myself a couple weeks ago. In fact, your situation sounds identical to mine. Do not wait to get treatment for this. You don't want your tube to rupture. It can be life threatening to you.

If you are 4 weeks' pregnant and the doctor assumed ectopic because of pain but an exploratory lap found nothing and and your hcg is at 300 are you okay and will the surgery affect the baby?

It depends how far along into your pregnancy you are. Before you have the LAP I would get a abdominal ultrasound to make sure the baby is ok and also talk your concerns over with your doctor about the OP.

Can doctor see anything in first month of pregnancy with ultrasound?

Yes they can it's very small and looks nothing like a baby and usually an internal ultrasound is perormed. This is a small pole that they insert into your vagina as it's easier to see from there as the pregnancy is actually very tiny wht's shown will appear on the screen but I doubt you'd be able to make anything out unless you knew what you were looking for. Due to the small size of the pregnancy it's unlikley a doctor would want to do an ultrasound at this stage unless it was to determine absoloutely that you were pregnant in the first place, which is unlikley as there are other ways of telling.

If you are 11 weeks pregnant and had a ultrasound and saw nothing on the ultrasound does it mean you are going to miss carry?

The first trimester of a pregnancy lasts up until week 12. If you are 11 weeks pregnant and you have a competent sonographer, there is NO WAY you could miss seeing an intrauterine pregnancy (a normal pregnancy inside the uterus). If you had an ultrasound and the sonographer didn't see anything (even as early as 5 or 6 weeks you should see a gestational sac) then you have probably miscarried already. Take another pregnancy test with your doctor's guidance. Another scenario that might come up (if your pregnancy test is still positive) is that you might have an ectopic pregnancy (where the egg implanted OUTSIDE of the uterus). This is fairly common but can be a serious disorder. The egg can implant anywhere in the pelvis or abdomen, but if you're 11 weeks along and you're not in a lot of pain, then that's probably unlikely. Go back and talk to your doctor.

If during the scan you see the sac in the womb is it an ectopic pregnancy?

What can you see on an ultrasound scan 7 days after insemination?


Can you b pregnant if your ultrasound showed nothing and your test were neg?

forgotto mention ive been having pg symptoms...and it took forever for mi son to show up b4 i found out.

I miscarried 9 weeks ago and the doctor said everything was out. Now I'm having pregnancy symptoms. The tests show positive but ultrasound shows nothing. Could I be pregnant?

You may be very early and there is nothing to see yet on the ultrasound. If you had any retained products from a miscarrieage they would show on the u/s and you would be very sick from infection after 9 weeks. Good Luck.

If your OB does not find anything on the ultrasound could that be because you had a miscarriage?

If your OB didn't find anything then that means that you either had a miscarriage or there wasn't anything there from the start. if nothing at all was there then probably no miscarriage unless you had a chemical pregnancy. I had a miscarriage and the ultrasound showed small empty sack, but no baby. It is interesting to note that two or three weeks later i had another ultrasound because of unexplained bleeding and i very much pregnant, everything that should be there was there. A lot of times when ultrasound shows just a sac a number of things can be the cause.It could be you're not as far gone as you thot or you're overweight with fat deposits around your mid or you have a tilted uterus. This is why a lot of OBs these days ask you to come back after a couple of days just to be sure. Check the website Misdiagnosed Miscarriage on the left; stories abound.
