    I had a scan at 8 weeks, and you couldn't see much, just a blob with a heartbeat!!

    They say you should defo see a heartbeat at 6 weeks, some people see it a few days before that.
    I think the only way you wouldn't see one is if your dates were out.

    Hi all

    I'm pretty new to this - I am currently 5 1/2 weeks pregnant. I have had 2 previous misscarriages before and so have booked in for an early scan at 6+6. My hcg levels were odd...38 at 13dpo and then jumping to 1199 at 19dpo??? I'm scared incase I don't see enough at an early scan and it leaves me even more stressed!

    Has anyone been reassured by an early scan?

    Hey DD!
    Good to see you in here!
    When i had an early scan they told me they could *usually* see the heartbeat between 6 and 7 weeks, but not always - everyone is different. I decided to wait until 8 weeks for my first scan as i didn't want to be worried if they didn't see it (i booked one privately). So if you are 6+6 and they don't see it then it doesn't mean game over at all.
    I think if you have an internal scan then it's easier to see?

    I had my first scan at 5 weeks, and then another at 8 weeks where I saw the hb. I had a m/c in October, so I was terrified that something would happen, but as soon as I saw the heart beating, I felt immediately better. The technician also reassured me by telling me that it looked good and strong. I hope you find reassurance from your scan!

    good luck! :flower:

    I didn't really see anything at 5 weeks! I think it was just a little tiny speck at that point, but they didn't say anything was abnormal...I think it's cuz it's only the size of a sesame seed!

    Here is a link to a cool 3D week by week calendar...it's on 5 weeks for you. I've been obsessed with it! It might be able to make you feel reassured also. I don't really care for the rest of the site, but the 3D calendar is awesome!

    With each pregnancy its different, its hard around 6 weeks to see or hear anything, i remember with my oldest i went for a scan at 6 weeks and they could barely see anything and they didn't hear no heart beat then i went back at 8 weeks and i could see it and hear it... almost made me cry

    Just want to say good luck hun, they will probably do an internal, please don't stress/worry if they don't find a hb at 6w6d, they will ask you back. i saw a hb at that stage but i know quite a few people haven't xxx
