Welcome to ehealthforum,
Early ultrasound scans can sometimes fail to detect gestational sac (can also be due to wrong dates). It becomes clearer after 6-8 weeks when fetal heart beat can be seen. If pregnancy has been confirmed by positive urine pregnancy test, then you should consider going ahead with getting serial HCG levels done. If the levels show doubling up of the hormone levels in 48-72 hours will show that pregnancy is going on smoothly. If levels are not adequate, then external hormonal supplements would be considered to be started to help you in preventing miscarriage. A repeat ultrasound scan done after 1-2 weeks will help to know the gestational age and viability. Visit your doctor/gynecologist for further evaluation and assistance. Be in regular monitoring and follow-up with your treating doctor/gynecologist and report any new/abnormal symptoms immediately. Take adequate rest. Drink plenty of water. Maintain healthy diet. Look out for danger signs like increase in intensity of abdominal cramps, increasing back pain, fresh bleeding etc. Avoid lifting any heavy weights and avoid heavy work. Avoid standing for long durations and avoid climbing stairs. Avoid use of caffeinated and carbonated beverages.
Take care.
