If you are truely 7 weeks pregnant, and there is no gestational sac visible in the uterus on a well done ultrasound evaluation, you probably have a tubal pregnancy.
Good luck.

If you have an ectopic (tubal) pregnancy. It is a LIFE THREATENING condition, and will require immediate treatment. You MUST see your physician for evaluation, monitoring, and appropriate treatment.
Good luck.

Your own physician will have to be the one evaluating you and managing your care. Since I do not have the capability of doing what your physician can do, I am only able to alert you as to a potential danger and advise you to continue with your physician.
Good luck.

hi tiggerpounce i went to the doctor today and my hcg levels are crashing so im miscarring i go thur for a d and c and a hope im spelling this right laperscopey and hystercpy forgive my spelling my doctor is worried cuz im spotting but have no cramping but im not gonna give up he said i should wait 6 weeks and i can try again but me and hubby are gonna wait till sept and get through with summer and let me heal im so sad and angry but after 12 years of trying i was blessed 7 weeks and 2 days thanks so much for replying back to me and may u be blessed take care and talk 2 u soon :'(

I am SO sorry to hear your bad news. I was wondering what happened to you & how you were. I can't imagine how terrible you must feel. It sounds like a good idea to wait until Sept to try again. Take the summer to take care of yourself & a break from all the craziness (timed intercourse, meds, tests, etc) of ttc. And try to heal your broken heart. I wish you much sucess in Sept! Come here anytime to vent & know you are not alone, I believe several women on this board m/c this month also. :'(

In a normal pregnancy, the beta hCG level should at least double every 48 hours for the first 8 weeks of pregnancy. A pregnancy which will miscarry, or an ecyopic will not be able to sustain the appropriate rise. Also, especially in pregnancies resulting from the treatments I do, more than 1 embryo may implant. If 1 drops out, we will see a poor rise initially, and an adequate rise in a subsequent 48 hour interval.
Good luck.
