 get a second opinion and make sure to get a second or even third u/s before making any decisions.

hCG levels in weeks from LMP (gestational age)* :

  • 3 weeks LMP: 5 – 50 mIU/ml
  • 4 weeks LMP: 5 – 426 mIU/ml
  • 5 weeks LMP: 18 – 7,340 mIU/ml
  • 6 weeks LMP: 1,080 – 56,500 mIU/ml
  • 7 – 8 weeks LMP: 7, 650 – 229,000 mIU/ml
  • 9 – 12 weeks LMP: 25,700 – 288,000 mIU/ml
  • 13 – 16 weeks LMP: 13,300 – 254,000 mIU/ml
  • 17 – 24 weeks LMP: 4,060 – 165,400 mIU/ml
  • 25 – 40 weeks LMP: 3,640 – 117,000 mIU/ml
  • Non-pregnant females: <5.0 mIU/ml
  • Postmenopausal females: <9.5 mIU/ml

* These numbers are just a GUIDELINE– every woman’s level of hCG can rise differently. It is not necessarily the level that matters but rather the change in the level.

I wouldnt worry yet, you are only 5 weeks they couldnt see the fetus until 8 with mine. I thought for almost a month I miscarried.

Same here. I had an u/s at 5w4d and all they could see was a sac. At the 7wk u/s we could see more. 

Quoting mistressflora:

I had my dates wrong and went in thinking I was 8 weeks...I was 5w1d. They saw a sack and a spec in it, but that was it. I had to go back 3 weeks later...longest 3 weeks of my life!

My DD is now a healthy, happy, goofy 5 year old :)

I think you're fine, just give it another couple of weeks and I bet you'll see a wiggly little gummy bear in there! :)
