  • If your Hgc is still elevated you may be having a molar pregnancy. Have you been spotting?

  • I had an ultrasound at 5 weeks 4 days and saw nothing but a sac. I have a followup u/s on Tuesday to make sure there is a baby in there and I will be 7 weeks 4 days.

  • It is very possible to see nothing at 5 weeks...especially if you aren't as far along as you think. But even at 5 weeks it can be tough and depends very much on the skill of the tech.
