Hi Everyone,

My LMP was on Dec.23,2010.My dh and I BD from the 26th of dec to jan.6th,2011. I had brown spotting on and off since the 18th of Jan but its only when i wipe.

When to the ER(01-23-11) because of the little back pain and spotting and the confirmed that i was pregnant. they did my HCG level test and it was 725 but couldn't see nothing on the ultrasound. they said maybe it was too early to see anything.

01-23-11=725 hcg level

01-24-11=1183 hcg level and progesterone was 47.7

01-27-11=3000 hcg level and progesterone was 37.7

did an ultrasound on 01-28-11 (5w1d) and they were not able to see anything on the ultrasound. I am schedule for another ultrasound on 02-04-11.....

Can I get some explanation please? I am getting a little worry because this is my first pregnancy and i am new to all this. I am been a little stress for the past few days and i don't have appetite but i am trying my best to eat something somehow.

Is my result normal?

Just jumping in here - I hope it helps. I had an u/s at what should have been 5w6d and they did not see anything on the ultrasound. I would not be too worried at this point. I am now 22w pregnant and you can definitely see him on the u/s. Have a happy and healthy pg and try not to stress too much.

As long as your levels are increasing at a good rate usually doubling about every 48 hours, then I would say you are fine. Also a lot of times 5w1d is way to early to see anything on u/s some of the girls on my board (June) didn't see anything till almost 7 weeks, while it is possible to see a bean that early it is highly unlikely. So try not to worry your #s look great. I had a lot of spotting in the beginning of this pregnancy but my dr said as long as it was not bright red I am fine and I can assure you my little man is kicking me as I write this:smileyvery-happy:
