Estrella, Estrella - 01/10/2014

i would go to the dr and have them check you for an ectopic pgnerancy. that's what happened to me. i had 2 ultrasounds, but neither of them showed anything in the uterus, however the second one showed a black spot in one of my tubes (it was an emergency dr visit because i had horrible lower back pain and started to bleed real bad and i thought i was having a miscarriage) that was infact ectopic. if this is the case, at 5 weeks, you are going to have surgury, id suggest going in tomorrow and having them check you for that, because if it is what i had, mine burst, and it was VERY painful. hcg levels immediately drop if it's a miscarriage btw, but not w an ectopic. good luck edit-if it is ectopic, and nothing has ruptured yet, you cant feel it, just an fyi from experience
