If you haven't been bleeding or cramping alot, I would say everything is going to be just fine. Don't worry. You might be able to hear the heart at 9 weeks, I did. GOod luck.

your doctor could do a v____al ultrasound as early as 6 weeks and you can see the heartbeat. after that your chances of miscarrying drop to something like 6-10%... it's really when you hit the 12-week mark and can hear the heartbeat pretty easily that the rate really drops, which is why a lot of people wait until then to tell everyone....
