question? please read

Hello, my name is Nicole, i am a sham of 4 kiddos 9, 8, 6,4 i have had 5kids my first son died of SIDS and have had one miscarriage for a total of 6 pregnancys. ok my question is i got my tubes tied almost 4 years ago and the past three weeks my belly has been cramping like when you are on your period, but i have yet to start my period. the first day of my last period was june 1st. so i went to the hospital today and they told me i am pregnant. they told me they thought it was a tubal pregnancy. so i had a tummy and vaginal ultrasound and they cannot find the baby. so i need to go back in two days to see if my hormone levels have doubled .if they have they are going to do more ultrasounds to try to see where the baby is to see if i need surgery. im sorry im long winded here its been a rough day. anyways my question is based off of my last period i am thinking im about 6 weeks and based off what my discharge papers say its possible to not be able to see the baby before 5 weeks .well they cant find the baby so has anyone ever herd of not seeing the baby as far as 6 weeks is concerned? i mean as far as if it is in the uterus, i know if it is in the tubes it probly would be hard to find, but i guess im just hoping it is in the uterus. yes me and my husband were done with having babys,thats why i got my tubes tied, however if there is a baby inside me i would want it to be safe and carry it to term. i have misscarried and buryed two of my children. i really dont want to go through this agian if anyone has any feedback that would be very helpfull. thankyou

Just from reading on different boards I have heard of women getting poitive pregnancy tests and then when the u/s is done they can't find the baby. Sometimes it is just too soon and soemtimes it is from a m/c. I am sorry that I can't be more help to you. I hope it was just too soon to see the baby. KUP.

Wow, what a surprise. I think the rule of thumb is the Hcg level and not the "exact" week you are on. The Hcg has to hit a certain number before the heart starts to beat, somewhere around 7 weeks.
Sometimes tubes can grow back together. Please keep us posted and I'll be praying for you.

I am so sorry for your losses. I can understand your concern and your desire to know what is happening.

PREG MENT

I am pregnant now and in the beginning i had somebleeding so i went to the hospital. They scanned me and couldnt see anything, but i would have been about 6 weeks. It turned out that the reason was that i have longer cycles than what is the 28 day 'normal', so i didnt ovulate until cycle day 21ish, making me a whole week off what they thought i should have been going from my LMP.

They booked me in for two blood draws 48 hours apart to see if my levels were rising appropriately and i had a scan the following week which showed a sac, pole and heartbeat.

It could just be too early for them to see anything yet.

You are in my thoughts though honey. Hopefully this is just the case.

Thankyou

Im sorry it took me awhile to reply, so here is what is happening.....
That day i went to the hospital i was off on my piriod. i would have been only 4 weeks prego wich would explain why they could not find anything.that day my hcg level was 20 two days later 66 then i had an ultrsound wich the doc found a sac with fluid in it in my uterus. he told me not to get to excited because it could be a sudo sac. my hcg level went from 66 to 500 in 4 days. the two days after that it went down to the lower 400s the very next day it was at 528 and the very next day after that it was at 706. i have been on an emotional roller coaster ride this last two weeks. the doc thinks the babe is ok. i have an ultrasound scedualed for monday 10 days after the last ultrasound wich will make me at the end of my 6th week. has anyone ever went through this? God is my sorce, and just knowing he is in control is what is keeping me sane with all of this bak and forth stuff, any comments are welcome
