Pregnancy Question

She is around 6-7 weeks pregnant. After scanning No Heart beat is developed yet. Not able to determine the correct gestation period, due to irregular periods which she had. Did Beta HCG blood test twice. 1st test the count was 17 and 2nd test after 2 days is 12. Doctor says that the count should be increasing, since it is decreased don't keep much hope. She asked to get a scanning done after 1 week. Is that the right thing to do. Please advise. Also, is it safe to travel by Air. We have our flights booked for 29th, just wanted to make sure it's ok to travel.

Hi greetings I understand your concern. Since the hcg is not increasing continuation is doubtful. IT IS SAFE TO GET A SCAN BEFORE YOU TRAVEL TO CONFIRM IT IS INTRAUTERINE  PREGNANCY. Hope you are convinced. Regards
