I had an baginal ultrasound at about 6weeks and the doc said the baby was either too small or I had a late ovulation. Can anyone tell me how big their baby measured at around 6weeks. We saw a heartbeat but were unable to hear it. Is that normal? Any ideas would be great. This is our second child and we live overseas.
I had a vaginal ultrasound at 6 weeks and I could see the heartbeat..You wont be able to "hear" the heartbeat til you are around 12 weeks. You probably did ovulate late if they cannot see aynthing yet.
Yep like MrsGordon said, if your doctor or U/S Tech has the right equipment for it, you can hear it! When I was having my U/S I didn't even know you could do that. So I saw the heartbeat and she asked if I wanted to hear it..I was like YES!! It was great :)
I would say that if they saw a heartbeat you are in the clear. Since they figured you ovulated late your baby is bound to be a little smaller but seeing a heartbeat is absolutely HUGE. I know it is hard to relax but at least it was a positive view from all aspects. I can't remember off the top of my head how big my twins were at six weeks but then again I ovulated earlier and they were closer to seven weeks at that point. Hang in there and congratulations!!!!
