I thought I was 7 1/2 weeks, but they changed my due date so I was 6w 3d. We could see the heartbeat. The baby was still a long blob though. And the yolk sac was there. My next "for fun" ultrasound will be when I'm just under 11 weeks.

My first was at 7w2d. We could see the sac, the embryo with a heartbeat and the yolk sac.

First one was at 4 weeks - saw nothing, not even a gestatation sac
5 weeks - gestational sac and yolk sac
6 weeks - fetal pole with heartbeat
7 weeks - a little bub forming - starting to look more like a baby
8 weeks - little arms and legs forming still kind of blob like though.

Hope this helps. It has more to do with HCG levels then weeks though. Doctor told me you won't see anything until 1000HCG.

My first (and hopefully only) u/s will be the 20 week anatomy scan. I've never had an early u/s and don't see the need for one.

I'll go to have an U/S around 13 weeks, and won't hear a heartbeat at the office until about 12 weeks.

No idea, but probably not until the anatomy scan around 20 weeks unless there is a medical reason to have one before then. My midwives don't do an early u/s for dating unless you have issues with bleeding or can't find a heartbeat with the doppler after 12 weeks. My insurance doesn't cover the NT scan and I won't pay out of pocket for it. My uterus is really tilted back, which makes it nearly impossible for a doppler to pick up a heartbeat until after 15 weeks, so maybe I'll get an u/s close to 12-14 weeks.

I will be 10wk 1day when I have my first. It should be resembling a little baby at this point on the screen

With DD, I found out about twins on an u/s at 11 weeks and you could see the little babies like moving ALL OVER the place.. even though I was weeks away from feeling it. So cool..

With my DS, I had one at 6wks 5 days and we could see the heart beating, sac and just a blob looking thing.

I will be 6weeks 6days when I go to my u/s on Monday Not sure what to expect as I've never had an early U/S before! lol This one was originally booked for my 19week u/s with my last baby I lost, but was then changed to a pelvic u/s after I had a m/c. Then they changed the date to the 29th, so I'm going in for a pelvic u/s with a baby that they don't know about yet! :S Little nervous!

I will be exactly 7 weeks when I go for mine.

My last ultrasounds were upsetting as I never got to see that heartbeat, so just praying that this one goes well and we finally get to see our beautiful baby and a heartbeat!

I was 6w3d when I got mine this time. heartbeat, baby, sac etc. Nothing too interesting to look at but the heartbeat is always nice to find.

With my m/c I had one at:
4w2d:found gestational sac
5w1d: yolk sac
6w5d: heartbeat, fetal pole, yolk sac

and with DD i had one at 7w2d, 12weeks, 20 weeks and 36 weeks(gallstones)
