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

What should I expect at next weeks us i was bleeding heavily but hCG levels were rising but still very low..I know its a miscarriage but why is my hCG rising even after my periods and now im spotting.
By LMP I am 7 weeks pregnant. Ultrasound at 6 weeks 3 days showed irregular sac, no heartbeat or yolk etc. No flow around sac. Hcg rising. Miscarriage?
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
