You would think with this being my 3rd, and having had early u/s with each kid, that I would know this but how quickly you forget LOL.

I go in Tuesday for my first u/s, by my calculations I will be about 5w6d, maybe 6w. Going by my hcg from last week, if it has doubled accordingly, it will be over 10,000.

Anyone else been in at this point and been lucky enough to see the heartbeat with a transvaginal u/s? It'd be nice to see before Christmas instead of just the sac!

I went in on Thursday where I was 6w2d... though baby only measured up to 5w5d, we saw a heart beat (though not a good rate, it was still there). Good luck!

You and I are on the same track, so thanks for asking this question! I have my ultrasound Tuesday as well and should be 6 weeks, I think. Give or take a day.

Praying to see a heartbeat! I will really feel better about this pregnancy if I see it!

I saw a heartbeat at 6.3 weeks with #4. I was told many times by my OB and the tech that they might NOT see the heartbeat, but we saw it.

That's probably better. I think early ultrasounds cause a lot of unnecessary worry

I have had them early with all three...I'm not sure if it is because I am high risk or not, this is actually the latest I have had a first scan! Others were at 4-5 weeks to check on sac. I know everyone is different but for me the early scans alleviate a lot of worry nd stress, even if I go at 4 or 5 weeks and see just a sac or whatever, it reassures me that at least I am on track for that week? I do see how it could be stressful for some but for me, I'm glad my dr does those early scans!

We didn't hear a heartbeat at just over 5 weeks at my confirmation appointment. My doc did another US at my checkup last week at 6 weeks 2 days and we got a heartbeat. She did tell me that sometimes you don't that early.
