Abdominal ultrasound at 7w3d showed empty sac. Hcg rising normally, is there any chance that the embryo was "hiding"?
Sounds odd: Usually by 7 weeks you should see something but is it a 7 weeks sized sac or is that based on your lmp. If its a smaller sac, maybe your dates are off a bit and then there's a chance. Next would want to make sure that the sac definitely satisfies criteria for an intrauterine pregnancy or else an ectopic pregnancy needs to be at least thought about. ...Read more

Early pregnancy: It's too soon to be sure what is going on. Often a woman will ovulate later and the lmp will not be accurate. The best option is to repeat the beta-hcg every 48 hours until 3 results are performed and a repeat ultrasound 1 week after the previous was done. That will usually solve the question. ...Read more
Im 7 weeks pregnant from ivf, hCG rising, now at 20700. 7 week scan had gest sac @ 13mm and yolk sac, no fetal pole or heartbeat. Is pregnancy doomed?
I am afraid so.: Your transvaginal sonogram should have shown a fetal pole and heart tones after a beta HCG level of 6, 000. Your rei specialist can fill you in on the issues of early pregnancy failure after ivf, which include molar pregnancy, blighted ovum, heterotopic and ectopic pregnancies. At your age, you should achieve a successful pregnancy within 2-6 ivf cycles. Best of luck! ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
