What to expect from 1st scan (7 weeks)


Hi girls, posted earlier to say I'm having an early scan on wednesday morning (due to brown spotting) and it's all I can think about at the moment I'm so worried.
From my LMP date (8th dec) I'll be about 7 weeks pregnant when they do the scan, what should I expect? Will they do an internal scan?
They have told me to have a full bladder but don't know anything else.....

Hi hun, I had a scan at the beginning of last week (6 weeks) and I had to have an internal done to see if they could see a heartbeat, as the external tummy one showed only a sac (Which you should see at yours). Remember everyone is different and we all show different things at different stages, so at seven weeks, you should be able to see the heart beat with a small little monster inside, but they could say it's too early too tell and you might have to come back in a week if your dates are not quite spot on. Good luck with it all! x x x x x x x

I had a scan at 7 weeks and she told me before she started that we might not be able to see anything, so not to worry. It was an abdominal scan and there was a little blob and a tiny flickering heartbeat. I was measuring 7 weeks 3 days, I thought I was 7 weeks 1 day, so was ahead by 2 days. I've also had brown spotting for some time now. I'm actually going in tomorrow for a 9 week scan for the same brown spotting, nervous, but encouraged and hopeful!

I had mine at what I thought was 7 weeks, Dr's thought 10 weeks (according to my LMP) and turned out to be 6 + 3 (CRL measurements). It was a vaginal ultrasound. They didn't even attempt an external. We couldn't hear a heartbeat but we could see it flickering away on the screen. SO COOL! So, we're going back again at 12 weeks to see Peanut again and hear the heartbeat for the first time! As for what you'll see, probably just a little bean shape and the heart beating... no movement just yet! Good luck and enjoy!

Hey, i had a scan at 6+3 which was external and we saw a blob with a heartbeat, and then a scan at 7 weeks which we saw a blob with a head and a heartbeat, this one at 7 weeks was internal becuase i was in hospital with abdo pain and i had just had a big wee not knowing they were going to do a scan. xxx

Hey. I had a 7 week scan. Went with a full bladder as they wanted to try to do external one but they could'nt see what they needed to. I had to go and empty my bladder & have internal. It was great saw little bean in the sack and heart beat flickering away. It was amazing. Enjoy! xxxxx

I had a scan on tuesday when I was approximately 6 weeks and I only had an abdominal scan, and all that was seen was a sac. I am back on tuesday for a scan when I should be 7 weeks (1 day ahead of you) so I will let you know what is seen. As others have said you generally see a fetal pole and heartbeat at around 7 weeks, but it depends on your dates and whether they give you an internal or adbominal scan.
