Ultrasound at 5w and 2d showed only gestational sac. No yolk sac or baby. Dr said might be too early to see. But hCG level came back next day at 15,209. Which do you go by? Hcg level or weeks?

Can be both: I agree with your doctor in that it may definitely be too early to see the baby, but encouraged there is at least a gestational sac being seen. Your HCG level is a little more elevated than expected but there can be a range of "normal" among women in early pregnancy. We generally take both the HCG level and the ultrasound to base judgements and decisions on.Hopefully by 8 weeks you will hear heart ...Read more

Hcg Level (Definition)

Beta-HCG is a pregnancy hormone. It is expected to double every 2 days in a normal pregnancy. If the level rises too slowly, it may indicate an ectopic pregnancy. If it drops, it usually means ...Read more

6wks pregnant, no gestational sac in tubes or uterus based off 2 u/s. 5 weeks hCG level at 1100, at 6wks 1900. Possible i ovulated later & see sac soon?

6wks pregnant, no gestational sac in tubes or uterus based off 2 u/s. 5 weeks hCG level at 1100, at 6wks 1900. Possible i ovulated later & see sac soon?

It's possible. . .: Usually we see a gestational sac in the uterus by the time your HCG level is 1200, but it's harder to see in the tubes. The HCG level also usually doubles every 2-3 days, and yours only went up a little over the course of a week. So those are both concerning signs. Even if your timing is off, the numbers are odd. Did anyone check a Progesterone level? That can help us with a diagnosis sometimes. ...Read more

Needs follow up.: BHCG levels should increase by 66% every 48 hours. Yours only rose a little over 8 days. See your Obgyn. Confirm that a gestational sac was seen located inside the uterus. Verify that that the doctor does not see an ectopic pregnancy (a pregnancy outside the uterus). Then you will have to continue to follow up with serial sonograms and BHCG to determine if you have a viable pregnancy ...Read more

U/s showed gestational sac measuring 5 wk 1 day. Hcg level went from 4200 to 4700 in 48 hours. Is this normal or miscarriage likely?

Not certain: You are early and the US is consistent. The rule of thumb is for the quantitative HCG to double by 72 hours. Are you bleeding, any cramps. Make sure you check with your OB. ...Read more

I am pregnant I'm not sure how far along however, my HCG level is 10,300. I had a ultra sound today and only thing that was seen was a gestational sac?

Bets guess.: The hCG and the ultrasound finding sound pretty consistent: this suggests you are probably close to 5 weeks. If you know the date of your last normal period that helps a huge amount. Good wishes. ...Read more

Depends: Well HCG of 920 is too low to see anything with an ultrasound. You may have ovulated later and this is just early pregnancy. Re check the levels in 2 days. Good luck! ...Read more

Different possibilities: You may have ovulated a little bit later than day 14 of your cycle. If that's the case and the beta HCG is correct a gestational sack may not be seen for another 2 to 4 days. The important thing to remember is to determine that the pregnancy truly is in the uterus and not in the fallopian tube. ...Read more

Hello, my beta hcg levels show 75000 but only a gestational and yolk sac is seen on sonogram. My gestational sac is measuring about 7 weeks...

Blighted ovum: At 7 weeks an ultrasound should show a fetus. The finding of only a gestational sac and yolk sac is unusual at the least and may suggest a blighted ovum. To be sure, most would recommend a follow up in a few days before discussing terminating the pregnancy. Hope this helps and all goes well. ...Read more

Ultrasound put me at 5 weeks 3 days but we only sac a Gestational Sac with no yolk or fetal pole is that normal? My HCG levels the day after U/S 9152

Early Pregnancy & US: The important thing is to know when you ovulated. You really can't know at this point. You may actually be further along and this absence of the fetal pole indicates an abnormal pregnancy or simply you are too early. Without knowing the day of ovulation, you must simply repeat the US in about a week. By then, fetal pole and heart beat should be evident. ...Read more
