Yes my sons 6 week was just sac and yolk sac no feral pole or heartbeat but by 8 weeks he was wriggling like a jellybean.

Iíll no doubt have another at around 8/9 weeks but want hubby to be part of it too

I've never heard of seeing anything well external at 6 weeks.also at true 6 weeks the most you might see is a fetal pole with low heartrate. You likely will only see the sac. Don't get too worried at this point.

I had one at what I thought was 6weeks 3days but was told I was only 5 weeks which I still find hard to believe as there was a heartbeat so you never know x

I think a lot depends on the equipment they have and the skill of the sonographer. The equipment most doctors have isn't good enough to see much on an external scan at that stage but if their equipment is good enough it can be quite clear at 6 weeks.

That early they should do transvaginal not abdominal because they won't see much. With DS2 at 5+6 we saw his hb but this was transvaginal. With DD I can't remember when but we had an early scan where we saw her hb, this time we had a scan at 6+5 and saw a hb too, these were all transvaginal. I think they're more likely to see more abdominally a couple of weeks later, but even then it won't be ideal.
You should be able to see whether they're in the right place, but that's about it

Itís a private scanning place they donít have the transvaginal equipment. I canít only have a transvaginal scan at the early pregnancy unit if I have bleeding

I see. How odd they don't have the equipment! Have you had any losses before? If so, would your unit scan you for reassurance given your history? Just wondering because here they will do. Some do some don't

Yes I had a ectopic scare (was a missed miscarriage in the end) and an early miscarriage before my son. When I found out I was pregnanct with my son I rang them up and told them and they booked me in for a 6 week and 8 week scan, but I feel too nervous to ask
