u/s 5w3d..empty sac...anyone else?
Fri, 04-27-2012 - 4:00pm
I had an abd and transvag U/s on what I thought was 6w. U/s showed me at 5w3d with a gestational sac in the uterus but nothing else. No fetal pole, no yolk sac, nothing.

3 days after that ultrasound my beta was 23819 (this was my only beta done at that time)

Anyone else have am u/s around 5w3d? What did you see? Anyone have a similar experience? I would love any opinions. This is my forth child with no previous losses.

Thanks in advance,

I had one early loss a few years ago. I had abdom us at around 8 weeks where there was a sac but nothing else. But at 5 weeks, I'm not sure you would see much. When I had my us this time around, the baby measured a week younger than I thought, so I was around 6 weeks. With the abdom all we saw was a sac. With the transvag we saw a fetal pole, yolk sac, etc.
Hang in there. It could just be too early for the us to pick it up. Prayers for you!

I agree with pp, your dates could be off an you could be earlier than thought. You could also have a retroverted uterus which can make it more difficult to see the baby early on. Are you getting a repeat US? P&PT for a great outcome.
