Ultrasound At 6 Weeks

I'm going for my first ultrasound (I think they will do both an external and an internal, va___al) I will be exactly 6 weeks to the day. What can I expect to see? Will I see the heartbeat?

I saw/heard the heartbeat at 6 weeks and 4 days. You could see the yolk sac also. And they measured the fetus.

Is 6 weeks exactly too early then to find the heartbeat? I'm just not sure what to expect to see I guess.

I think that the heart starts beating in the 5th week, if I'm not mistaken... I bet you'll be able to see it. But I've also heard that sometimes it is hard to detect that early, so it's not a bad thing if it isn't detected yet. Good luck! I just went on Monday and this is my first pregnancy, so it was/is very exciting!

Oh - and I only had an external u/s, no internal. Did they ask you to come with a full bladder? That could be a clue that they will do one externally.

Yup full bladder, I'm pretty sure they will do an internal. So I'm hoping to see the heartbeat. Thanks Nora! Good luck to you :)

I had my us this morning, I was actually only 5 weeks 5 days. They couldn't see much, the start of a fetal pole and that's it. Is that normal?

I really didn't see much until 8 weeks. All I saw at 6 weeks was an flickering artery and a cluster of what looked like cells. good luck!
