I hope someone can help me!

This is my story:

LAST PERIOD DATE: July 5th, 2010

I took an OPK on Sunday, July 18th, came up positive.   We had sex from Tuesday July 20th until Saturday, July 24th.   TOOK a pregnancy test on Friday, July 31st came up negative.  Repeat test on Monday, August 2nd , positive. 

On Monday, August 16th HCG levels were checked - 2,600

Re-checked on Wed., August 18th HCG 4,000

U/S on Thursday, August 19th (suppose to be just over 6 weeks)- sac only seen, measured at 5 weeks.

U/S on Monday, Aug. 30th (suppose to be 8 weeks) still only a sac, measured 5 wks 5 days.  HCG re-checked, now at 16,000.


My question is- is there a chance at a healthy baby at this point, or should I expect a miscarriage?  I have had no spotting/bleeding/cramping.  I have had little m. sickness. 


THANK YOU FOR HELPING ME!

That early you cant rely on the size quite yet. They were off with my baby for all 3 of my first u/s's before 13 weeks.

I had a regular U/S at 9 weeks and we could see the baby

I would think that your OB would have called you if he/she was worried that something was wrong. You can always call and ask if you can't wait for your next appointment. I wish you the best.

 It's hard to tell with an u/s that early.  It seems to me like you HCG levels are going up as they should.

I wish I could be of more help.

I had a u/s at 5wks all they seen was a sac. At 7wks we seen a growing fetus with a hb but we couldn't hear it yet.

your levels are going up so it looks good. All my pregnancies the girls have measured small. Do you have a family history of small babies

I had an ultrasound at 10 weeks and the baby was just a spec on the screen but they could hear the heartbeat. Good luck!

Seems like your levels are going up like they are supposed to... they just may be off on the date or it could just be too early... I didnt see anything until 8-9 weeks with mine... thats why most doctors wont check until then... Plus Im sure the doctor would have told you if something is wrong.  I would try to stay positive and not expect a miscarriage... I hope all goes well and talk to your doctor next time and let them know your concerns! Good Luck!

Yeah, every time I get an ultrasound they end up changing my due date, don't worry hun, it'll work itself out.
