6 weeks need advice

Ooohkay i need advice.... to my calculations im 6w 1d to my drs calc im 6w 4d i had an ultrasound today and they saw a gestational sac but no baby no heartbeat. They retested my hcg today and it was 6000. I started off with only a 35 hcg 48 hrs after 86 then 212 and now 6000.....
to me its rising great...
today after my ultrasound my nurse seemed very certain there was no baby.... could i be too early? Shes being extremely negative. Im reaching out bc i feel like i could still be okay but i understand i may be too close to the situation to just realize its a no go.

Any help or advice is appreciated.

Probably just early.

You're probably just early. My doc won't even do an ultrasound before week 8 if I'm not bleeding. Try not to worry and call if you start to bleed or get horrible cramps.

Well there's certainly no harm in waiting a few weeks to see what happens.  Waiting is hard - but I think in the long run you'll be happy you took a wait and see approach.  

Best wishes.

When I had my first appointment I thought I was 7w 1d. By my Dr's calculation I was 6w 2d. He said if I had come any earlit wr probably wouldn't have been able to see anything. So I would guess you are just too early.

Is your date based on last period or scan measurement?

Its based off my last period

OK well you may be less than 6 weeks in that case.  The hcg is rising well so i'd try not to worry and go back for another scan in a couple of weeks.
