Nervous about Ultrasound

Back tomorrow to have another ultrasound. 10 days ago although urine and blood tests were positive, they couldn't find anything on the ultrasound. Had more bloodwork and levels tripled. Said they were "cautiously optimistic" that we would see something tomorrow. Hoping I was just not as far along as we thought. This is my first pregnancy (I am 22) and my husband and I are so hoping and praying that things are going to be okay! Anyone ever gone through this? Don't worry about being gentle - just want to know some scenarios. Thanks.

So excited! Heard and saw heartbeat! Because of my irregular periods, I was off in my estimations. They dated me today at 5 weeks 6 days! I guess that's why they couldn't see anything 10 days ago! Over the moon and so thankful!

Thank you for the encouraging words. I will update when I know. I have a peace this morning which I know comes from prayer - Heading out soon

if they took it around 6 weeks, it is pretty common not to be able to find anything on an ultrasound. the bloodwork sounds like it's looking good which is awesome! around 6 weeks your baby is only about the size of a pea, that is pretty hard to find even with the technology nowadays. I had a friend who they found the baby on ultrasound but her bloodwork wasn't even doubling- long story short, tripling levels is awesome! i'm keeping fingers crossed for you that you'll see your little bambino tomorrow! :D
