  • How far along are you? That helps more than HCG levels

  • Your hormone levels are just an estimate. when I was three weeks pregnate with my second child my hormone levels were 226 were they should have been between 5 and 11 on more than 75 so they were for sure that i was having twin well come to find out there was only one and my hormone levels were just increasing faster. Usually by 10 weeks you should be able to heart the heart beat unless you are a heavy set lady then it can take a little long( no affence if you are) If you do an ultra sound give it a couple of weeks and retest because things are hard to pick up when the baby is so small. There is still hope just pray.

  • I heard my baby's heartbeat at 6 weeks with a vaginal ultrasound. They like to do those when you're very early on that way they can see it too.
