I had my first U/S last Thur (5 wks 6 days). They saw the yolk sac but said at 5.5 wks too soon to see a heartbeat. Anybody else have the same experience?
I have been ill ill ill with morning sickness every day and I'll go back for another U/S this Thur where I am expecting to see the heartbeat.
Thanks for any input!
I had a similar experience. They gave me an u/s becuase they had no idea how far along I was. All they could see was a yolk sac, so they figured I was about 5 weeks. I went back two weeks later, and they could measure the length, determine the due date and I got to see the heartbeat.
So you're totally normal....it takes time for that little heart to get going :)
Where are you from? I have been having on every week since 6.4 weks and will continue until 12wks. I am considered high risk b/c of hx with m/c's, IVF, preterm labor. However, my DR just said if you want to feel comforable we can do one every week..I said YES Thanks and see you next week.!! It is just done so i can feel confident with seeing a heart rate. I lost one at 14 weeks.
I am in Canada. If I get pregnant again I will be considered a high risk so the doctors will be doing an ultrasound when I am 10 weeks along as well as many other tests. I almost died after I gave birth to my son in July. My son died a day later. I am waiting to see what happened to my son. The doctors think it was something in the blood-maybe viral. I will wait and see what the autopsy says. My son was only 10 days early.
Oh, so sorry for your difficult pregnancy and loss of your child. Your post brought tears to my eyes..I'm thinking of you. I would hope DR will follow you very closely with any and all your pregnancy's. Keep me posted.
i went to the ER because i was having some pain on my left lower pelvic , and i was told that i was pregnant , u/s 5 weeks pregnant , so it was to early to see anything else , so am having another u/s on monday to see if everything seem ok
