HI and thanks for using the forum.

Congratulations on your pregnancy!

It is not uncommon this early in pregnancy to not see a heartbeat on ultrasound.  Generally, they will tell you to come back in a week and see what they can see then.  IF you have any bleeding/cramping, be sure to let your ob/gyn know.  Good luck and try not to worry too much.
