First U/S today and it showed nothing...so is that the end?

Hi ladies...
So I had my first U/S today, and I'm a little over 7 weeks, and the doctor couldn't see anything in my uterus. The took a blood test today as well to check my levels and they're going to call with my results later, but does this mean I miscarried and its over already? We're both besides ourselves, and I think I'm in denial. I just don't want to believe it. Is it possible to still be pregnant if you can't see anything at 7 weeks? Please let me know if anything like this has happened to any of you. Thanks for listening....

  • First off, I'm really sorry - anything but a definitive u/s is hard.

    Second - I'm also sorry to say at 7w to not see anything isn't a very good sign :(. However, I've known people that have had something 'show up' after the kind of u/s you had, but it's not super common. For example, in my case, I had a heartbeat at 6w1d with both pregnancies. I hope you get good news, but I would say it could be that you had a blighted ovum (no baby in the first place), or a miscarriage.

    Wait and see how your levels look and I'd ask for another u/s in a week if they are good.

    Hugs. This is no fun and totally sucks :(.

  • I am so sorry to hear this. You should by 7 weeks see something on ultrasound. You beta levels help tell the doctor what they should see (ie yolk sac vs gestastional sac vs live IUP). They likely drew a beta after your ultrasound didn't show anything. Depending on your beta level they may need to do more testing to ensure it isn't a tubal pregnancy. I would like to say maybe your dates are off but on this board that doesn't usually apply since most of us know our exact date of insemination or transfer. Again I am so sorry. :(

  • Well I just heard back and my levels are at 7000 which the doctor said isn't good because she's pretty sure it's an ectopic pregnancy. I just keep wanting to think that the baby is hiding or something. I know that's silly. At any rate I'm having another u/s done tomorrow morning to be sure then they have to give me the medication to take care of it. Argh... Why me :(

  • I'm sorry to hear this. Many women have had your experience and then go on to have healthy pregnancies afterward. Hang in there. TTC is a roller coaster of emotions.

  • I'm so sorry! My beta was a 400 and I had my first u/s at 6 weeks and it showed no sac. We had to wait for the call letting us know if my beta went up. Unfortunately it went down to a 76, so it was a chemical. Big hugs :(

  • I'm so sorry to hear this.  It always hurts to hear that a pregnancy isn't (or might not be) viable.

    I had a blighted ovum in my first pregnancy; you can usually see at least a gestational sac on the u/s.  So it does sound likely that it would be tubal/ectopic since it isn't showing anything at all.  I wish you and your SO the best as you work through this.

  • Well I had another u/s this morning and it was the same as yesterday, empty uterus. They proscribed Methotrexate and and I just had the injections done now...I can't believe this happened. I wish I could stop the emotional pain. I should have realized that getting a BFP on the first IUI was too good to be true. That being said I still want to try again in a few months, but I think I need to step away for a little bit, it's just too painful. Thank you all for your kind words, we really appreciate it.
