Unclear: Are you saying you got pregnant after your d;c and the doctor says you are 8 weeks pregnant but no pregnancy is seen? Something in this equation isn't adding up. Either you have an early pregnancy, like 4-5 weeks, and the doc isn't seeing a fetal pole because pregnancy is too early, or you had a miscarriage. I'm not sure why doctor wouldn't tell you that?
Please see your doc for clarification.
