My doctor today asked me to come in for an ultrasound tomorrow instead of two weeks from now? I will be 6 weeks tomorrow. They got my blood hcg levels back today, and they said it looks good- and high enough to go ahead and do an ultrasound (maybe *slightly* high for 5 weeks?) and she said since I've had cramping that they want to go ahead and do an ultrasound to make sure I don't have any blood clots.
Anyone else ever do any ultrasound at 6 weeks? What are reasons for that?
I had a scan at 6 weeks 1 day because I had an ectopic with my last pregnancy. I was able to see my baby, the sac, and the yoke. Also a heartbeat, but I have to go back for another can cause its heart beat was low. Some women don't see that much though. Congrats and good luck!!!
I had a scan at 5wks and saw the gest sac and yolk. Then I had a 7 week scan and saw the baby looking like a jelly bean with the umbilical cord and a heartbeat. So maybe something in between. Hope all goes well.
awesome! I will let you know how it goes, I'm just slightly uncertain of why they would push it up? Just because the levels are high enough? or could they think I'm further along? They didn't seem to think anything was wrong, but they were pushing for me to do an ultrasound tomorrow instead of waiting two weeks- so it makes me wonder....
I'm sure its just a better safe than sorry type of thing if you've been having cramping. I'm getting my first scan Friday and I'll be right around 6 weeks. They are doing it for me early because I will be flying the following week and they want to make sure the baby is in the right place.
