Scan showed nothing 😢

(19 Posts)

I'm current 6.5 weeks
I had a early scan 9days ago which showed nothing. But positive test

Today I had scan and internal scan can't find anything and another positive test

I'm really confused as surely something should be seen my dates are accurate

I'm fearing ecoptic but surely this would be visible

I have been getting bad shooting pains in lower stomach and in my right hip
Got to go local epu first thing sad

Not sure what to expect now

You do need to be seen again. They should be doing blood tests every 2-3 days to see which way your HCG levels are going.

Once HCG reaches a certain level (1500-1800) they ought to be able to see a pregnancy in your uterus on an internal scan. If they can't then it is likely that your pregnancy is ectopic. Unfortunately many ectopic pregnancies are never seen on scan- this is partly because they are not always in the Fallopian tube.

Good luck, I hope everything is ok and that they take good care of you.

Thank you I'm prepared for the worst but just need closure hopefully will know more today and get some bloods done

littlehelp Tue 16-May-17 18:00:11

So bloods came back at 1344 so surely something should be seen? Got a retest on Thursday

Polly99 Tue 16-May-17 19:58:26

You're not quite in that zone where they expect to see something.

I'm sorry you are going through this, I do know how horrible it is waiting for some sort of resolution.

Polly99 Fri 19-May-17 10:04:36

How did you go yesterday Littlehelp?

littlehelp Sun 21-May-17 15:19:07

So bloods doubled but just had test done today and it's not changed going for injection tomorrow as they now class as eptopic 😭

I assume this will now result in miscarriage

littlehelp Sun 21-May-17 15:19:40

Thank you for asking x

I'm sorry you haven't had better news.

I had the injection for my first ectopic. The injection works by depleting your body of folate so the pregnancy cant develop further and is reabsorbed (i.e. I didn't pass an embryo as with a normal miscarriage).

It is usually effective but does have a failure rate so iirc they monitor afterwards to check
your HCG levels are falling. I felt very tired a few days after the jab, possibly this was something to do with the lack of folate, and I took some time off work to recover.

You then have to wait 3 months before ttc again. I was pregnant the month after which was another ectopic in the same tube so I had surgery and then was pregnant with my daughter 3 months after that. It was something of a rollercoaster but worked out in the end.

I hope it goes smoothly for you.

littlehelp Mon 22-May-17 12:45:25

Just literally had the injection knocked me sick
I really hope it works and there is no repeat 😢

Really appreciate you telling me your story it's really comforting xx

Sorry for this awful day you're having. I've also been through similar and it really is a grim old time. Look after yourself xxx
