ultrasound help...they couldn't see the baby?!

So I had an ultrasound done last week at 4 weeks, and they couldn't see the baby/embryo. My other 2 pregnancies they could see the fetus by 4 weeks. And then they were telling me they saw a cyst or possible ectopic on my right ovary, or that they could've just missed the embryo in the uterus...Is it all that common to miss the embryo at 4/5 weeks? I'm confused...

you could still be too early :-(  my last pregnancy they couldnt see anything at like 8 weeks.....and then all of a sudden 2 weeks later there she is!

so i would wait a few more weeks and then go back to the doctor and see.... :-)

Well i know at my 4 week scan they couldn't see anything. I would try and not worry to much. When will they bring you back for a re-scan

I was under the impression that they couldn't see the baby until 6 weeks!

this was my son at 6 weeks pregnant my levels were over 5,000...he was super tiny here and this was zoomed way in. 4 weeks is probably still way to early. i know at my doctor they won't check ultrasound until you're levels are over 5,000...good luck and keep us posted!

You CANNOT see anything at 4 weeks, sorry. That is IMPOSSIBLE! They could barely see my baby at 6 weeks.

Agreed. My dr warned me that even with a transvaginal ultrasound that we may not be able to see the baby at my 6w3d appt. We could barely see a little dot and the heartbeat was too small to measure.. it was just a flicker!
