I havent had my period since january and im positive im pregnant but how does the ultra sound not see the baby?

I haven't had my period since the end of january, and i took 2 pregnancy test and they said negative, well this passed friday i was having some abdominal pains so i went to the doctor, Well come to find out i was pregant well they sent me to the hospital bc no obgyn could see me at such a late notice, well they took blood and did an ultra sound, they couldnt see the baby but did tell me i have a UTI and 2 cysts. Well i go to a obgyn on monday and they still have no answers, all they wanna do is keep drawing blood, whats wrong with me?

  • Did the blood work say you were preggo or not? If the ultrasound cant find it, it could be an etopic pregnancy. Dont get stressed or worry till you've seen the OBGYN. Your about 8 weeks or less pregnant so maybe you cant see it this early on an ultrasound??

  • thats what i thought but wouldnt they be able to see if it was a tubal on the ultra sound and my HCG levels from the blood are low but the obgyn said it says im pregnant.

  • Make sure they do a probe ultrasound. It's more than likely too small right now. W antibiotics for the uti may not help ur pregnancy complications but that's the only thing u can do. Take care of urself & take it easy to lessen ur complications.

  • A probe ultrasound is a vaginal ultrasound, it is easier to see earlier term baby's with the probe.

  • This happened to my friend. They told her that the baby is to small to see in the ultrasound.
