I had an u/s at 6w0d and saw a heartbeat, but don’t stress if you don’t see one- it could very well be to early. Here’s a picture so you have an idea what a 6 week u/s looks like. Congrats!!!!6 week ultrasound

 my first ultrasound was at 8 weeks to confirm pregnancy. You really dont see much but a little round spot, which is the egg. 

i had hardly any ultrasounds past the first trimester, which i always thought was a little weird.

We had a scan at 5 weeks to see if it had attached correctly and then again at 7 weeks to see heartbeat. I was very nervous because I have endometriosis, so we had a lot of scans.

take2bride :  It’s definitely hit or miss on what you’ll see that early on the scan. You will probably see the yolk sac (the round thing feeding baby until the placenta is established), gestational sac, fetal pole, and possibly a little heartbeat. It’s so teeny at that point though that sometimes it’s hard to see a number of these things/get an accurate measurement. Let us know how it goes!

I had one with both pregnancies. 

– First pregnancy i had no idea of conception date as I had no period (juts come off BC) so it was to get a dating estimate. They did 2 scans a week apart to get a sense of development but turned out the pregnancy wasn’t viable

– second pregnancy I had one at 6 weeks as I was nervous after the MC. I didn’t see a heartbeat. Then had a second one at 8 weeks and all looked good and saw a lot more.

I had a 6w+6d ultrasound! Doc wanted to early scan with me because i had two early miscarriages with no live births. We have never made it to the point of an ultrasound so i am soooo happy. Little bean was in there and we saw the fluttering heartbeat in there beating strong at 125 🙂 


I was worried about ectopic too, but by 6 weeks you should have some pretty serious symptoms so i would say dont stress about that 🙂
