6 th week, normal HCG level but no Heartbeat


ladies,
Has anyone experienced what I mentioned in the title? I went for an u/s on friday, 6 w from LMP.But the doc said only the Yolk sac is there and no baby and heartbeat.So she adviced me to do a beta HCG on friday and then again on Today (SUN).So I went today to gave the blood for the second time.Then I asked the counter for the HCG levels that I took on friday and it was 36840.So the level is quite enough for the 6 th week.But I am really worried why I couldn't get the heart beat. I will get the result of today's HCG tomarrow only.Then I should call the doctor to get her opinion.
Do any of you experienced anything like this. I mean , normal level of HCG and no heartbeat.?

No Im sorry. Im on 6w5d but I havent gon to my early scan yet but im very scared that something is wrong.. mabe because this is my first pg.

Just want to wish yougood luck, and hope that your just come shorter then you think and thats the reason you didnt see the heartbet.

But I heard of a girl that went to the doc. He didnt see any heartbeat. Told her he wanted to clean it (dont know what its called in english). She said no waited a week ore something like that, went to another doc and then the heartbeat was there.

Good luck

Aww, hunny if you have a good search you'll see there's tons of people on here who have been to a 6 week scan and they've had trouble finding a heartbeat, yet only a week or so later everything has been fine!

Its a frightening thing to go through i'm sure but please remember that the heartbeat isn't guaranteed to be seen at 6 weeks, thats just the first possible time it could become visible.

Try and relax and look after yourself, there's every chance you'll go back for another scan and be waving at your LO in just a few days.

Thinking of you

Thank you all for the encouraging responses...
Today I got the result of second Beta HCG it is increased..now the level is 410000.two days before it was 340000. But my doc says it must have incresed more.So she ask me to wait one more week and do a scan again.
I don't know how could I wait one more week to get a clear picture...

I had the same thing happen.
I was 5 weeks plus 4 and they couldn't see baby,just yolk sac .
I went back at 6+4 and baby was there with HB.
You could be a few days off thats all.
Lots of luck xxx
