Hi. I was dated as w +1 and saw a large yolk sack and heart beat. The embryo measured 2mm. Let us know how you get on

w = week i suppose

week 6 i guess, a heartbeat at 5 weeks would be quite impressive, but not impossible (i think)

I've had a million early ultrasounds, and at 5 weeks, all you are likely to see is a tiny gestational sac. If they do an internal, they may see the yolk sac and a fetal pole, but that is a big maybe. The heart doesn't even usually start beating until 6.5 weeks.

Bascially, at 5 weeks, they should be able to tell how think your uterine lining is and if there is a sing of pregnancy in there, and that is about it. If they see anything more, than it would be because you are farther along than they thought.

I had an internal scan at 5+1 and only saw the gestational sac and yolk sac which I was told was normal at that stage.
