ultrasound at 5w 2d, nothing showing up!??
I went for an ultrasound today and nothing showed up so i had a vaginal ultrasound and again nothing showed. Iv had my blood taken and the result is low levels? so got to go back in 2 days for more bloods. I have a slight pain in my groin on the laft hand side and im now worried about eptopic pregnacy.

Sounds like a silly question, but are you definately sure on your dates?

Sometimes nothing can be found because it's still too early for the ultrasound to detect anything.

The low levels could suggest the pregnancy isn't as far as you think or that there could be a problem. The hormone levels should double daily in a healthy pregnancy. (I'm not trying to scare you, Apologises if I do).

Hi & thanks for your reply.

yeah Im defo sure of my dates ... first day of last period 2/8/11, sexual intercourse on 13/8/11 & 14/8/11. missed period, several positive pg tests.

I was under the impretion that even though a 'baby' can't be seem before 6 weeks, that they would at least be able to see the sac? but the sonographer said she saw nothing at all?

Im now thinking this is probably not a viable pregnancy Sad
