6 weeks 1 day, gestation, yolk, no heart beat, two sacs(update)

My friend is pregnant. She got pregnant while on BC, so she doesn't know exactly how far along she is, but does know the last time she had a "period or bleeding episode." She was measuring by the sac 5 weeks, and some odd days. This week, it's 6 weeks 1 day. There are two yolk sacs, but no fetal poles in either one. Is it just too early? Everything I've seen says that it could just be too early for a fetal pole or heartbeat. I got a fetal pole and heart beat at 6 weeks and 4 days. How about you?


Update: HCG levels today over 33,000! What do you think? Is she in there clear?!

  • There is a chance that it is too early. I have not had that experience but a dear friend that did.

  • Oh and I should have said that everything was fine it just wound up being to early to find a hearbeat.

  • OK. I looked up a lot of info for her today, and I think I helped her relax a little. I just REALLY hope everything works out. She's my bestie! I love her! Anyway, and if she has twins!! EEEKK! :)

  • I did fertility stuff, had IUI on Aug 17, tested positive with a blood test on Aug 31 and heard a heart beat and saw a baby on an internal ultrasound on Sept 14 just 4 weeks after concieving. So it should be there. being that she got pregnant on BC i would worry. i hope everything is ok though!

  • I was just over 6 weeks with all of my babies but maybe since there are two they and twins are often smaller then they will not be able to see them for another week or so...not sure but I hope everything is okay.
