Pregnancy Slow Development

Kofki - May 10

Hi, hopefully you can clarify a really worrying situation. On April 3rd, I tested positive with a home pregnancy test (4 days eqarlier it had been negative). My last period was 2/28/2005. However when I had an ultrasound on 04/12/2005 there was no sign of development - no gestational/yolk sac present. My blood tests proved that yes, I am pregnant and hcg levels were rising (tho' not quite doubling at that stage). Today, 1 month later I had another ultrasound which should have shown the embryo at 6-7 weeks after a positive test, (10 weeks after last period). Only the yolk sac was present - no other signs were visible. Can you please tell me what is going on? Is this an unhealthy pregnancy? BTW, I've had no pain, just sore br___ts. Also - run a lot 40-60 miles per week and have ran 3 marathons since Dec. Is this a factor? All advice would be greatly appreciated.

Hi, hope this helps anyway, it could be that your just to early for then to see a baaby yet. I am about 5 weeks and last week I had an ultrasound and all we saw was a yolk sac I go for another ultrasound tomorrow to see. My hcg levels went up but did not double.

Kofki - You should be able to see a baby with heartbeat clearly at 10 weeks. It could be a blighted ovum unless you have your dates very wrong - I'd talk to you doctor asap about it. I don't think running can cause a blighted ovum but I would ask your doctor - I know you're allowed to do moderate activity but marathons may be too much.

I had an ultrasound at 5 1/2 weeks all they could see was the sack.I went back at 8 weeks and we saw the baby and the heart beat.It was just too soon

Hi, i was having a lot of bleeding and my doctor told me i miscarried. He sent me for an ultrasound which showed only a yolk sac and was about a week and a half off from my last menstrual period where i should havebeen showing at seven weeks it was only showing five and a hlaf weeks. The doctor wanted to do blood tests to make sure i did not need a D and C but instead of my HCG levels going down they were going up. Another ulrasound ten days later should a embryo with a heart beat, continues to be a week and a half off from my last menstrual period. I hope everything goes OK for you it could just be to early
