Early Pregnancy: I am not quite sure what blood tests were done on you but i would presume that you have a very early pregnancy for them not to see the baby on ultrasound. If this is so, one is not able to feel the baby's kick until around 18-20 weeks gestation for a first pregnancy. A blood test, beta hcg, correlated with a transvaginal ultrasound will give you more information regarding the age of the pregnancy.

Unlikely scenario: Fetal movements are not usually detectable to the mother until at least 16 weeks. By this time, no amount of fibroids should obscure the fetus. In general, even an early gestational sac should be visible by ultrasound in the setting of most fibroids. The blood test used for pregnancy is very sensitive and accurate. False negative tests are extremely rare. Discuss with your ob.
