At 5W you can't see anything on the U/S all you can probably see is the sac. I don't know why doctors do them so early because half the time it just makes the mother question whether it's normal or if something is wrong.

Therebis likely nothing to see at 5 weeks.

I agree. It use to be that the first ultrasound would be done at 12wks based off lmp. That way you could clearly see baby. But with the early home pregnancy tests more women are finding out earlier and rushing to Dr. At 5 weeks there's nothing to see and a lot of times a women's dates are off and Dr diagnosis as a miscarriage but in reality it is just too early to pick anything up. Best time to have an u/s is after 8wks

As above not much to see at 5 weeks but you should be able to see baby and a heartbeat in 2 weeks.

I am 5 weeks and went in yesterday and all that could be seen on u/s was a sad. 100% normal. Don't worry more will be seen on the next one.

I didn't even go to the doctor until 12 weeks :)  did my ultrasound around 14 weeks....I just don't see the point in early ultrasounds. When I had my first 11 years ago I only had 1 ultrasound mid pregnancy.
