I hate to always bring bad news but I'm so new to all of this! Okay, so on Wednesday I went to have my HCG levels checked again becuase when I went in the week before Christmas they were at 310 and the dr just wanted to check again. She said when they got to 1500 we could do an u/s. So, the nurse called me on Wednesday and said my numbers looked good and that we could schedule an u/s on Thursday. So I went in Thursday and they didn't find anything....the nurse said it was too early to see any fetal pole (pull??)

I think they can't really see anything but the sac and a dot before 6 weeks or so... if your EDD is closer to Aug 27th then you'd be 5 weeks and some days. I missed the u/s window with my second, but thinking back to my first I'm pretty sure they told me they like to do the confirmation u/s between 8-12 weeks when there is more of a baby shaped thing with a heartbeat. You're probably fine!

I'm due 8-27 and had my first appointment today. My doc won't even look for a heartbeat for 3 more weeks because he doesn't want me to be concerned. So sending you positive vibes and hopefully some comfort that it's still really early!

Is there a reason why they want to do an u/s so early?

Yeah, I really don't know....I guess they are just doing it to get a better idea of the due date, but I am trying to find peace in the fact that it is still just early and it probably shouldn't have even been done because all it did was get me worried.
