I'm approx 5 weeks pregnant, my hCG -18500 and progesteron -103. But in ultrosonography doctor can't see fetus. Is it normal? How it should develope?

I'm approx 5 weeks pregnant, my hCG -18500 and progesteron -103. But in ultrosonography doctor can't see fetus. Is it normal? How it should develope?

Simply because you have sono pix from your doctor at some point doesn't mean you're still pregnant, but need more information. ...Read more
