Any hope for this pregnancy?

I'm trying to determine if this pregnancy has a chance. I saw my OB yesterday after spotting and experiencing cramps for 6 days. The pregnancy test was positive but the transvaginal ultrasound found nothing in my uterus or fallopian tubes. The corpus luteum was seen. My waking temp. is still high (98.0) and the bleeding has stopped. My OB said this is likely a miscarriage or ectopic preg. The high temp, corpus luteum and positive test make me wonder if there is any hope.

A little more info... I've had two successful pregnancies and one very early miscarriage before them. The second conception was 3 years after the first because IMO breestfeeding kept me infertile. I now continue to breastfeed both kids (4 years and 18 months old). I began periods again 3 months ago but assumed I was still infertile because of short luteal phase due to breastfeeding. I did chart one cycle from 2/2 to 3/4 but it was very irregular. Any help is greatly appreciated.

There's always hope.

As long as they can eventually find a yolk sac and it is under 12mm, there's always a chance.

Just hang in there and see what happens. If they can't find anything on u/s, maybe it's just too early.

I had an u/s at 5 1/2 weeks and they didn't see anything.

Take care mama

I had an ultrasound at 6 weeks that showed a sac but no fetus, and then 2 excruciatingly long weeks later had another one that showed a big old fetus with a strong heartbeat. They asked me to wait because they figured I was way earlier than we originally thought I was. Turns out my due date only changed by 3 days, so I'm not sure how I went from nothing to a big fetus, but it happened. Not sure how far along you are supposed to be, but maybe this will help. Hugs and prayers for you.
A friend of mine had similar problems and went on to deliver a 9 lb baby boy at 41 weeks. There's always hope

any time u have a u/s before 6weeks there is always a chance that there will be nothing there to see because of the extremely small size of the fetus and because all u/s machines are not created equal. if you u/s was done with a machine that is more than 5yo then the odds are it is not gonna be as reliable as a u/s machine made within the last 2 years.

not only the machine but the person runing the machine can make all the difference in the world.
