Hello, I would be happy to help you with your question.

From what you are saying:
1. You are 29 years old and went through IUI for male factor reasons
2. You should be 8 weeks along, but ultrasound shows nothing in the uterus
3. Your doctor is recommending a followup scan in one week

Questions for you:
1. Did they do a pregnancy test that showed you to be pregnant?
2. When was the last test and what was the result?
3. Did they even see a sac in the uterus?

Please let me know!
