Measuring 6 weeks and 2 days, no fetal pole - scared
 
I am unsure if this is the forum to post this in, but here it goes..


This will be a bit long but could really use some input...

LMP: August 31

Period came 4 days late but I also stopped taking birth control pills that month so it was not surprising. Period was normal. Cycle lengths vary between 28 - 33 days. I did not keep track of ovulation.


BFP: September 22
Based on LMP it put me at 3 weeks and 1 day pregnant.

I tested 9/19 and got a BFN


I had brown spotting from 9/24 - 9/30 (I also had spotting issues pre-pregnancy).


HCG levels:

9/22: 60
9/24: 136
9/26: 442
9/28: 447
10/02: 5010
10/04: 8294
10/07: 17,000's (ER didn't give me an exact number)


I had an ultrasound done on 9/26 (estimated at 3 weeks 5 days based on LMP). Findings were a collection of fluid which appeared to be in the uterus which was the possible start of a gestational sac forming.

I had another ultrasound on 10/02 (estimated at 4 weeks 4 days based on LMP). Findings were a sac which appeared to be in the uterus but also possibly a pseudogestational sac due to ectopic. Thought they saw beginnings of yolk sac (when it was zoomed in you could kinda see it). Sac measured 5 weeks and 6 days (9 days ahead of estimated weeks pregnant)

10/07: I had an ultrasound done. Pregnancy confirmed as in the uterus. However, gestational sac measuring 6 weeks 2 days (based on LMP I am only 5 weeks 2 days). Sac obviously grew, yolk sac grew but ER doctor concerned at my HCG level and weeks gestation (based on sac size) that nothing other than a yolk sac is being seen.


I did the clearblue pregnancy test with weeks estimator (I know it isn't always accurate).

9/22: Said 1-2 weeks which made sense at 3 weeks 1 day
9/29: Said 2-3 weeks which made sense at 4 weeks 1 day
10/03: Said 3 + weeks which made sense at a day shy of 5 weeks.


Progesterone level checked last Friday: 40

I saw my OB 10/08 and he is concerned that my gestational sac size is dating the pregnancy 6 weeks 2 days (0n 10/7) and my HCG levels are over 17,000 but all that is being seen on the ultrasound is a yolk sac. I'm quite certain I had to have been at least 6 weeks as you could see the gestational sac and yolk sac transabdominally and I dont think you usually can until at least 6 weeks into your pregnancy. I did have it done transvaginally as well. So my question is..

Has anyone had an ultrasound done around 6 weeks 2 days, not seen a fetal pole and had a normal pregnancy?

Any other words of advice on this situation is greatly appreciated. I have a ultrasound scheduled next Thursday and if no fetal pole is seen doctor wants to re-draw my hcg levels and mosy likely discuss a d and c for the following week. I am so scared right now.

I had three sacs, no poles, nothing. It was 6w 4d. I did fertility treatments, so my dates couldn't be argued with. The doctor didn't hold out much hope. He was an ******* too.

One week later, at 7w 4d, there were three babies. My doctor said he'd never seen anything like it.

Hang in there, I hope you get back in to be seen soon. Hugs.

I know this is an older post but I'm going to comment just in case someone else in a similar situation sees. I had an u/s at 6w1d/6w2d...I was measuring 2 weeks behind with just the gest. sac showing. No yolk sac, no fetal pole. I prepared myself for the worst but 12 days later I was measuring on track again. I'm 11 weeks right now and was able to find the heartbeat today on my doppler :) I don't trust early u/s anymore...I think they can be very off because everything is still so small. I have heard this happening to several other women as well. Hope everything works out for you!

Hope you're doing okay. Sometimes we tend to get excited and getting ahead of the things. Just pray that everything will be okay.
