    How early on can you see that the baby is OK with a scan?

    My periods were messed before I got a BFP so at most I will be 12 weeks on the day of the scan but if I was only 3 weeks (1 week past conception) when I got the BFP I would only be 8 weeks.

    Is 8 weeks too soon to see a viable heartbeat? The MW said she would rather overestimate dates than underestimate as I can always go back later when needed.

    Any ideas? Thanks.

    I went in at 8.5 weeks and could clearly see baby with heart beating quickly away. :) So, I think you should be able to see the heartbeat clearly at 8 weeks but maybe it depends on the technique used and how up to date the scan equipment is, I'm no expert though!
