Generally you can see the sac when your hcg reaches 1,000 - 1,500, which happens at around 5 weeks. Depending on how your bean is growing, though, it might be sooner or later, and that's okay. I had an u/s at 5w1d and saw nothing. At 6w we did see the sac and fetal pole...Pokey took his/her time.

I have had quite a few early ultrasounds. I have always been told you need your hCG levels to be 1000 to really see anything.

I have seen a sac and a fetal pole as early as around 4 weeks 6 days but I think 5ish weeks is more the norm. I think some of this depends on the equipment at your doctor's office. I wouldn't count on seeing anything until you were somewhere between 5 and 6 weeks.

thats ok with me, 5-6 weeks sounds early enough to see a bean if there is one
