Im approximately 9 weeks pregnant with my 3rd child. I started having very slight bleeding only when i wipe and very little cramping so i went in for an ultrasound. They did one on the belly and a vaginal one and they couldn't find anything. No baby or sac. I'm scared that I a may be having a miscarriage, but they just sent me home with no further testing. Has anybody else gone through this. I had to miscarriages before having my other children and it doesn't feel like that. I'm scared and some feedback would be greatly appreciated.

I was also wondering if a hcg level 10,000 was too low for a 6 week pregnancy?

I won't swear on the HCG levels, as I don't know.

But I think it's odd that they aren't going to do further testing. With my last pregnancy, they had me follow-up for another U/S a week later, which confirmed the miscarriage.

Hi mbzd69 -

I wanted to check in to see how you are doing. Have you been back to the doctor?
