A 26-year-old female asked:

An ultrasound showed a small gas sac but my hcg levels were only 348. is it possible to see a sac already at 4+5?

Early pregnancy: It is possible to see a gestational sac at 4 weeks and 5 days. That HCG level does not match the ultrasound findings, and your doctor should be following both closely. Good luck.
