Worried that I might have a blighted Ovum

I've posted this question in a couple groups but I like to get as many opinions as possible. I had an ultrasounds last week at 5 Weeks and 3 Days. All they saw was the gestational sac, no yolk sac or fetal pole. The doctor seemed concerned and I have another ultrasound this week, I will be 6 weeks and 2 days. My HCG level last week was at 5000+. Not sure what it is now but I feel very pregnant, nausea, sore breasts, frequent urination, the works. I have had no cramping or bleeding and I'm 6 weeks today. I have been reading about blighted ovums and I'm worried that maybe that is what I have?

  • For me at five weeks three days all they saw was a yolk sak. When I went back a week later, there was a baby and a heart beat. I was 6 weeks 3 days. I think every thing will be fine. GL!!!

  • I went in for my ultrasound this morning, nervous and scared as I could be since we saw nothing but the gestational sac last week and my doctor was so negative, but there it was, the yolk sac, my little bean and a flicker that was the heartbeat!! So beautiful to see. I'm so relieved and so happy. I was afraid there would be nothing there again.
