I am hoping that someone can help me...
I am 23 and about 4 weeks ago I took the at home test and it was positive. The way I calculated it from the first day of my last cycle (oct 28) I am suppose to be about 6weeks and 1 day pregnant. My first visit to my gyno was yesterday. He gave me a vaginal exam, took my blood and urine sample as well as an u/s. The u/s showed the sac itself (a perfectly round sac) but no fetal pole. My dr. then told me that he finds it a bit strange that the fetal pole is not yet visible (considering I am 6 weeks in). He told me that looking at my u/s it looks like I am only 4 weeks pregnant. To me that doesn't add up... He warned me not to get scared if I start bleeding heavily ( in a way preparing me for a miscarriage). We made another u/s appointment 2 weeks from now. Today I received my HCG levels at 13,104. I don't know what to think? Is it possible to have a high hcg and continue a pregnancy with no fetal pole? Does it maybe mean that it might be too early to tell? Should I prepare myself for the worst?View Thread
