No fetus found in ultrasound

After Endovaginal ultrasound on 9th May, doctor said there was no fetal found only sac is available with 19.1 mm size. so,on same day checked B-HCG and again repeated after 48 hour interval. Result was 35000(firsttime) & 53000 (second time). Now today after seeing B.Hcg count doctor asked me to do ultrasound after 2 days.

For your information.
My LMP 19March2018.
Ovulation between 12th March and April 1 as per Ovulation kit. So We had sexual intercourse only between these dates.
I don't have any abdominal pain, but I passed a blood clot 2 days before scanning. Also my stomach is filling very fast with gas.

Please give your reply , I am totally depressed.

Please wait it out with your doctor. I went through two miscarriages back to back in march and then april. Hormone levels can be a nightmare but they have to constantly be tracked to figure out the next step. Bleeding doesn’t necessarily mean you are having a miscarriage so they are checking the hcg levels to confirm.
Thank you for your reply!!!

These are the criteria radiologists use to determine if findings on obstetrical ultrasound are diagnostic of miscarriage vs. suspicious for but not diagnostic of miscarriage: https://www.acog.org/-/media/Practice-Bulletins/Images/pb200a.ashx. Your scenario of gestational sac diameter of 16-24 mm and no embryo is in the column on the right, which is suspicious for but not diagnostic of miscarriage. This is why your doctor requested a repeat ultrasound in a few days.
