Hi. We did IUI one month ago on 8/13. She missed her period and the a blood test said she is pregnant. The hcg was 200 or something and last week rose to about 1000. Today my wife had an ultrasound. The doctor says that we are at 6 weeks because we count from the day the last period ended or something like that (about 2 weeks before 8/13). Anyway, the vaginal ultrasound today shows that there is no gestational sac, although the uterus lining was thick. We did another blood test today and the hcg is also high. I will update with more info as I get it. Has anyone seen this? Is this likely to be an ectopic pregnancy?

Update: The hcg today, which I said was high, is 7000. Doctor is recommending we do methotrexate ASAP. The only symptom is a slight back pain. No bleeding, abdominal pain, dizziness, etc.

I'm having the same problem. By right, I'm supposed to be about 5 weeks pregnant today, did a vaginal ultrasound and doctor said he couldn't find any sac.
My heart sank when I heard that. He ordered me to do another bHCG blood test today. I'm so scared. Is 5 weeks too early to see anything?
