    Try not too worry too much hun, it could just be that your dates are slightly out or that it implanted slightly later, they don't run to the same timescale :hugs:

    My friend had her first scan at 6+3 (meausured by sonographer), and there was no heartbeat detected. She went back at 7+5 and there was a healthy hearbeat going away in there!! :)

    Good luck! xx

    I requested an early ultrasound because I was stressing.. So My first ultrasound was at 5weeks 6 days and there was a heartbeat of 105- Then I got another one a week later to make sure that the heart beat went up and at 6weeks 6 days it was at 135 :happydance:- I wouldnt stress yet it could be a lot of reasons why they cant find it- God Bless

    I feel sick with worry now. My dates made me 6.6 but I know I ov late so I think dates are 5.5 or 6 which is when the earliest scan can apparently pick up heartbeat and 12 weeks before sound. I ve been told not to stress:( which is all very easy when u haven't lost a baby and it's estimated due date is in a few days. I feel like I want to know to help me get through that day:( my hospital are pants:( last time I felt let down this time their early booking scan for me is at 14 weeks!!! WTF. Only reason I got this one was because I could hardely walk cos of kidney infection.

    We first saw a hb at 6+3. It was just a tiny white flicker on a 4mm fetal pole.

    Seeing the hb at 6 weeks is very dependent on how good the sonography equipment is, plus if you think you may be less than 6 weeks then there would have been a very small chance of seeing a heartbeat anyway. Im sure everything will be fine. Good luck xx

    I understand how u feel. Seeing a heartbeat gave me a glimmer of hope after 2 m/s's last year. I have also passed my due dates and could cry to think i could have had 2babies in my arms if the worst hadn.t happened.

    Like other girls have said, it may be too early. Why dont u contact epas in a few days time and see if they can offer u a reassurance scan and explain you are worried about what stress is doing to your pregnancy.

    I know its hard not too stress, esp after losing a baby, but try and relax. Fingers crossed your local epas can squeeze u in for a reassurance scan if you're persistent x

    Just want to add...that I asked my doctor today for an early scan (have been spotting on and off, cramps one night), because my scan won't be until 9 1/2 weeks. He said that he'd rather wait until then, because sometimes they won't find the heartbeat early. He said if I got an early scan and they didn't find it, then I would worry, even though he would tell me not to worry! So, I'm going to wait, but I thought that might give you some reassurance.

    :hugs:

    I saw a heartbeat at 6w3d, but the doctor spent a long time reassuring me beforehand that I probably won't see a heartbeat until 7 weeks or later.

    I saw a heart beat at what they told me was 5 weeks 5 days - however, had my dating scan yesterday and it seems I am two days further so I would have actually been 6 weeks 1 day. The waiting is very hard but if you saw a fetal pole then thats a great start!
    Try not to worry!! Easier said than done but you need to stay positive hun!!
