At What Hcg Level Should You See A Heartbeat w/ Vaginal US?

I believe this has been answered before, but couldn't find it in the archives.  At around what Hcg level should you be able to see a heartbeat w/ a vaginal US?  I have an appt this Friday when I should be 6w1d but know that O'ing a few days early or late isn't uncommon and could change what I am able to see dramatically at this point.  On 7/3 my Hcg were 947, on 7/5 they were 2,600.  Thanks for your replies!!

Well that's what I have. So, according to the table your levels should be over 1000 to see the heart beat, but as you see they vary quite much, so it's hard to determine.

weeks---------------------------------- hCG in mIU/ml
3 -------------------------------------     5 - 50
4 -------------------------------------     4 - 426
5 -------------------------------------    19 - 7,340
6 ------------------------------------- 1,080 - 56,500
7 - 8 --------------------------------- 7,650 - 229,000
9 - 12 ------------------------------- 25,700 - 288,000
13 - 16 ------------------------------ 13,300 - 254,000
17 - 24 ------------------------------- 4,060 - 165,400
25 - 40 ------------------------------- 3,640 - 117,000

Well, we are very similar. At 4 wks 6 days I was at 977 and 2 days later I was 2700.
The closest on my calendar to compare to you would be at 5 weeks 6 days my hcg was at 16,667.  
That day was my 3rd ultrasound and they finally found the sac that day :)

I just found out that my levels are at 1399 and the doctor told me not to go anytime before they hit 2000 or even shortly after.  Cause they wont be able to see anything.  She told me to wait until after I was 6 weeks to go.  Hope this helps!

I went to the ER with this pregnancy when I was 4 weeks 3days because I was spotting, and my HCG was 885, they said that they should be able to see something with the hcg at 2000. When I went back at 7 weeks we sawe a heartbeat but I have no idea what my count was, I'm sure WAY above 2000. But that's what my Doctor told me, hope this helps!!

The heart begins to beat on the twenty-eight day of conception.  I can't tell you what your levels should be at, but I do know for a fact the heart begins to beat around the 28 day.  

It sounds like you are scared and I will pray for you.  Everything will be just fine!

Hey.  I'm in the same boat and will let you know.  My level on 07/12 was 6,000 and I'm supposed to be 5 weeks, give or take a day.  On 07/10, so sac, but on 07/12, he thinks he saw what could be a sac.  I go back on 07/15 and my levels should be way over 10,000.  I don't expect a heartbeat until over 6 weeks though, another week.  Good luck!

My doctors nurse told me to see a heartbeat the level is generally around 25000. I went to the doctor was supposed to be 7 weeks and saw nothing, went back later and saw a 7wk fetus with a heartbeat. my level 3 days prior was at 24,778.
