Had ultrasound today after a frozen embryo transfer 3 weeks agoand showed nothing. My beta doubled in 48 hours. Should I be hopeful?
Yes: Ultrasound like all tests has a certain resolution so it pick up structures of a certain size but if the probe wasn't aimed at exactly the right place it would not detect the very small embryo.
