sometimes, heartbeats are not detected. you will be advised to come in again for sonography. Dr.Shilpitha Shanthappa

actually my last usg done on 16th april which showed 5 weeks. and next  usg was done on 19th may (approx after 1 month), it shows fetal of 9 weeks but no cardiac activity seen. this is why I am asking. My dr suggested for beta hcg blood test which is required to be repeated after 48 hrs.

asha chaudhry  My Dr suggested for Beta HCG. I have given the blood sample.  It will be repeated after 48 hrs

Dr. Payal M

ur gestational age by lmp is 11 weeks n tht by ultrasound is 9. also the fetal length is way past the time when a heartbeat should appear. a repeat scan or hcg evaluation maybe done to confirm tht this is not a viable pregnancy. heartbeat is usually seen by 7 to 8 weeks.

Dr. Shilpitha Shanthappa

i would suggest you to wait for b-hcg reports... then only somethings can be suspected..
