6 weeks 5 days no fetal pole UPDATE: HEARTBEAT SEEN!

Postby gigi » Sat Jan 23, 2010 6:18 pm

i had a vaginal ultrasound on january 16, the gestational sac measured 19.7mm coresponding to a gestational age of 6 wees 5 days. a yolk sac was seen measuring 2.5mm. but there was no fetal pole or heart beat detected. :(
on january 18 my hcg levels where at 52,296 and 3 days later it increased to 65,201. ( didn't double)

i have been spooting brown for about a week or more

is it normal to not see a fetal pole at 6w 5d?
is my hcg normal?
Has anyone experienced this before and had a positive outcome?

( i do not have a tilted uterus) :( :*( :O :H

:)O please help im really worried :*(

No, your numbers are not supposed to be doubling now. They are supposed to be slowing. Generally, a week after the yolk sac is seen, the baby will be seen. You are still early and, yes, women have gone on to find their babies. I don't know the outcome here but I do hope you get the best of news.

I missed this! I am so happy for you. I am moving this to the misdiagnosed area because this is so common. So many women have levels in the tens of thousands that do not double and empty-looking sacs and all ends up being fine.

Yay!

Your story gives me hope. I am about 7w pregnant. I have been bleeding on and off. The last u/s showed a fetal pole of 4mm but no heartbeat. I hope to see a strong hb in my next u/s.
Please keep us in your prayer.
Thank you Father that every good and perfect gift comes from you.

i have seen in the internet that somtimes when the fetal pole is smaller than 4mm a heart beat may not be detected, good luck in the next scan
