I am an ultrasound tech and it's totally normal not to see a heartbeat until up to 6wks 5 days. She seemed a *little* worried, but asked me to come back in two weeks.
The doctor could only see a yolk sac and said I was under five weeks.
a couple more days and they will be able to see the heartbeating. I have an encouraging story: had my first ultrasound two weeks ago, thinking I was about 5 weeks and 4 days along (I had been charting faithfully, and was pretty sure about ovulation).
Well, I just got back from the doctor, and they found a fetus and saw a fluttering heart!
And, apparently it was completely normal for them to see only a yolk sac when I was almost five weeks along. It has really gotten me down, but after reading so many posts re: the same thing, it looks common.
The thing that worried me most was that she said I was under 5 weeks, but I had gotten a positive pregnancy test 13 days earlier. I thought I was 6 weeks, but they are stating 4 weeks 6 days. They just took blood yesterday and will again in 2 days to compare the HCG levels and do another u/s next week. I thought I was 6 weeks, but my MD only found a gestational sac with a tiny yolk sac inside..fetal pole.
Turns out my first positive (it was SOOOOO faint) was at FIVE dpo. I'm going back in 2 weeks when he said the heartbeat should be visible. It is looking pretty common so try not to worry ---- I am doing the same. I too had an ultrasound where my uterus measured 6 weeks (I could be a day or two short) and there was a yok sac but no fetal pole yet. I don't think this is bad news - at least not yet, so be positive! She thinks that our math is wrong and I'm more like 5 weeks.
We tried doing an ultrasound, and they were unable to find anything.Joseph was handsome, adventurous, engaging, and intelligent. As the relationship became more and more serious, Kim was faced with the most difficult decision of her life.Should she ignore the Holy Spirit’s nudging to break off her relationship with Joseph?First trimester scanning is useful to identify abnormalities in the early development of a pregnancy, including miscarriage and ectopic pregnancy, and provides the most accurate dating of a pregnancy.First trimester scanning can be performed using either an abdominal approach or a vaginal approach.
