When I went in at 6+1 my babys heartbeat was only 102, doctor said it was low, and heart just started beating. The ultrasound tech warned me that there was a chance I wouldnt see a heartbeat cause it was early. I wouldnt worry to much yet, it happens to alot of ladies with early scans, thats why I hate them

Ohiomum, I'm in exact situation as you. My last menses 21june and is on 30-33 days cycle. Hence I should be a six weeks now..A scan on Friday shows nothing except a sac. Will be going for another scan next week. Before that, I would really avoid reading forums and webbies about ob/mc to avoid getting over paranoid (though I been studying them past few weeks!) I hope u stay away from them too & stay positive for your Bb. Update me next week!

This isn't my area of expertise or anything, but since I didn't know what a fetal pole was... I looked it up on Wikipedia. It says it usually shows up by 6.5 weeks, but it's still okay if it's later. It says it may not appear until week 9.

Best of luck to you. Keep busy and think positive!

Thanks Ladies!!

I have my next u/s on Thursday. I am actually slightly crampy, nauseated and had tendor nipples (TMI, I know) over the weekend. I don't know if it's in my head or what. I am trying to stay as positive as I can. I know I have longer than usual cycles, so I am holding out hope. I was just telling some friends before the initial u/s that I had a feeling this baby was going to be onry as my daughter is so good. Maybe this is a sign that the baby is in fact a little squirt!

I'll keep you all updated! Thanks again!

Tiggerz - how did your doctor react when didn't have a fetal pole at 6w5d? Mine seemed so pessimistic.

He just said it's just a little early to see and explained how tiny everything is at that stage - he also said things looked good and the sac was nice and round indicating healthy! If things are going wrong apparently they kinda go flat like letting a balloon slowly deflate.

I'm sure you'll be ok hunny - I think you were scanned too early and IMO from my experience they shouldn't scan until 7 wks+ as it causes so much upset and stress when a baby isn't seen, but had the scan been done a few days later that stress wouldn't have been necessary xx

Goodluck! Please message me after your next scan - I don't want to miss your update xxxx

I had an ultrasound at 6 weeks 1 day due to some bleeding. The gestational sac and yolk sac were present but no fetal pole. The doctor that I saw said it wasn't uncommon to not see the fetal pole present at that time. I went for a follow-up ultrasound at 7 weeks 3 days and there was the fetal pole with a heartbeat Good luck and keep us posted!

my first scan was @ 5 weeks 6 days and all they could see was a sac, they scheduled another for a week later and bam, there was my baby and a beautiful heartbeat, so please do not worry, they cant always see this early on, even with trans-vaginal scans, please keep us posted and relax hunny

oh and i had the same symptoms as u, just tired all the time n boobs hurt, didnt feel preggo @ all besides that.
