Hi, I had a sono this past wed.I was 6 weeks and 4 days. There was a sack and the embryo. I thought you could get a heart beat by then? The doc said it was too early. Can some ladies let me know which week(s) thy were able to see or hear a heartbeat? Just a liitle worried. I had a miscarriage in Jan. just a month before I concieved....

Rebecca, I saw my daughter's hb at around 6.5 weeks after lots of looking around and zooming in, but there is a chance you miscalculated the dates by a week, so don't worry too much. It also depends on the position of the embryo. Are you scheduled for another sono soon? By 8 weeks, you should definitely be able to see one.

We saw the heartbeat at 6 weeks 1 day. My son is 4 weeks old now.

Are you still having blood levels taken? That would at least show you whether or not the HcG level is going the right way.

we saw the hb at 7 weeks through ultrasound and again at 10 weeks through the doppler.

Thanks for the postings! I go back in two weeks(around 8 weeks). She said not to worry and of curse I am. It was equpment in their office and it didn;t look like she could zoom in on it. I am waiting to get my blood results back. Thanks again! Rebecca

I saw mine at 6w0d. BPM 117. I would ask if your hcg levels are doubling. you can go every couple of days and get blood taken

7w3d here, didn't try before then.

I saw mine at 6w4d, but couldn't hear it yet. I didn't see it the whole time so maybe it is just hard to find it when they are that little.

6.5 weeks here. but they didn't seem to have a problem finding it. but each baby is different. dh and i were both almost 10 pounders, so the u/s tech has cursed us with a big baby. it's absolutely normal for them to not be able to see the heartbeat yet, but i'll bet they will at the 8 week march, which from reading the dates finally, has pa__sed lol. oh yes and i couldn't hear it until 8w (actually it was only a week later, but the baby had grown 2 weeks worth of growth)

I was actually able to see a yolk sac, little bean, and a heartbeat at 6w4d. However, my doctor's nurse (who I absolutely love and completely trust) wasn't as concerned with how far along I was. She was more concerned with where my hcg levels were. She explained that the hcg levels were directly related to what could be seen in an u/s. So, don't stress based on the actual dates. Maybe you're hcg levels double a little closer to 72 hours vs. 48 hours, so they might be a little lower at 6w4d than my were. It sucks that we all have to stress so much, I know! I know this is a little late in terms of a response to your original posting, but maybe it will help someone else!

My ob doesn't see you until you're 8 weeks, and I went last week for our first appointment. It was hard to wait until the 8 week mark, but we were able to see the little heartbeat and it was 154 bpm... I wouldn't worry too much though, b/c your dates could be off by a day or two, and that could make the difference between seeing a heartbeat or not. Don't worry yourself, I'm sure at your next appointment everything will be fine and you will see the heart beat clear as day! Good Luck!

I saw my children's heartbeats at 8 weeks, 8 weeks, 5w6d, and will be going in on the 21st for a 6week check, where I'm hoping to see another heartbeat!

 

ajm1028 - May 19

I saw the heartbeat and heard it through a v____al u/s at 5 weeks and 5 days

 

AMB - May 19

do not worry about see or hearing the heart beat at 6w4d. I am a sonographer and it will depend on what type of ultrasound you had (transv____al or transabdominal), I will also depend on the type of ultrasound machine is used, and your body habitus. So please just relax and try no to stress.
