Depends: By transvaginal us, the embryo can often be seen quite early but should be seen by 2000 miu/ml. By transabdominal us, it should be seen by 6000 miu/ml.

Defer to OB: I am always sympathetic to the anxiety these situations cause. What does the doctor who is taking care of you, ordering these tests and the ultrasound telling you? It surely sounds like the pregnancy is not viable.

A member asked:

My 4 week ultrasound saw a sack and baby. My Hcg levels moved upwards as they should. At 8 5/7, they saw a sack but no baby. Is it possible to miss it?

Yes: It is difficult to see a "baby" by ultrasound at 4 weeks gestation as just a gestational sac would be present. At 8 weeks the fetus should be visible within the uterus.
