    So last Tuesday I had an ultrasound done and there was no evidence of my baby. The readings said my uterine lining was thickened to 12 mm. I believe I was 4ish weeks when it was performed. My hcg at the time was 1,071. Any ideas what is going on. My hcg as of today was in the 7,000s.

    what was the doctor's/technician's response to this? I assume it was a vaginal ultrasound. I am confused why your hcg levels would be rising if you weren't in fact pregnant. I would ask for another ultrasound.

    Was a tubal pregnancy ruled out?

    It may have been too early. According to this http://www.webmd.com/baby/fetal-ultrasound , ultrasound "can be done as early as the 5th week of pregnancy."
