Did anyone on here have an u/s around the 5wk, 5day mark. I will be going in tomorrow and want to know if I should be able to see the heartbeat or not. I know that I did see it at 6.4 weeks during my first pregnancy, but is this going to be too early? I'm nervous! Thanks!
The appointment went well. I actually measured a little early than what I originally thought - so it turns out I'm right at 6 weeks today and saw that precious little heartbeat!!! 132 was the rate. He said it had probably started beating in the last 24-48 hours! It also means that I've now got a little pumpkin on my hands instead of a little turkey (hehe - my EDD changed from Nov 1 to Oct 30). I haven't heard back from the labs yet, but it was a good u/s!
You might be able to see it, but it's probably a couple of days too early. Generally the h/b isn't formed/functioning until 6w. However, if you're measuring ahead at all, you *could* see it earlier. Good luck! Hope everything goes well today.

I had a u/s with my pregnancy that I lost at 5 weeks and 3 days and there was no heartbeat yet.
I also pushed mine to 7 weeks so I knew I could see a hb then. Good luck though I hope all is well!

I had an u/s at 5w4d with my first pg that I lost and there was no hb at that time. My doctors told me that they didn't expect to see hb at that time it was a few days too early. Things change very quickly in the early stages.
I think there is a possibility that you may see a hb, but I would not worry yourself if you don't because it could very well just be a touch too soon.
