At what week is normal to see the baby and hear the heart beat? When is too early and have any of you seen the sac and then later saw the baby and heart beat?

I don't know when it is normal to hear the heartbeat but I had an u/s done at week 8 and was able to see the heartbeat (couldn't listen because they didn't have the right equipment)

Now at 8 weeks the baby was really six weeks correct.

yes exactly. I was suprised actually that there was a heartbeat already. To be precise I was 6 weeks 2 days

there should be a heartbeat there at about 6-7 weeks that will show up on a ultrasound, i first heard my baby's heartbeat at 16 weeks it was magical, hope this helps.

I first saw the heartbeat at 6w2d and HEARD it at 10w2d. Good luck to you!

Now you guys are all talking about the age of the baby or from your LMP?

The reason I ask is beacause I went to the doctoe on Monday after some light spotting without cramping over the weekend. He did an u/s just to put me at ease but it didn't. he found the sac but said it measured 51/2 weeks which was correct becasue form my LMP I am 7 weeks and a few days. But he said it may be to early to see anything I go back again next Wed. for my reg. scheduled apt. Does this sound normal?

When I saw the heartbeat at 8 weeks that was from LMP (so the baby was really 6 weeks). Try not to worry.. if you haven't had cramping and you're not spotting more than you are probably ok. When you go back next time you should probably see a heartbeat.

Thank you, you have eased my mind now I will just wait until next wed.

I'm sort of in the same situation. Did an u/s yesterday....I'm supposed to be 8 weeks from lmp, but baby showed up as looking like 6 weeks. Any thoughts on this? Couldn't see a heartbeat yet, and have another appointment next week. All of this uncertainty is making me crazy! Please help!!

Tell me about it I am in the exact same boat but add a little spotting to it, nothing major just a little pinkish brown when I wipe, my apt is next week to, I guess all we can do is try not to stress and wait until next week. I know easier said than done. Prayers are with you all.

Also Kristen, that is right the sac should be 6 weeks big since you are 8 weeks pregnant. Some say that is to early to see anything so I guess we should be glad we saw the sac. I am 7 weeks along.

You also could have ovulated at an odd point in your cycle. If you ovulated late in your cycle, then your baby could be smaller than the calendar predicts.

I saw the baby and heartbeat at 6wks. I am now 11 weeks and heard the heartbeat through a dopplar last week.

Hey, Kristina and Kirsten, you may want to check with your doctor because when I had my u/s done and they dated everything at 6w5d, that was with the 2 weeks they add on for grins. Because that would then make me 13 weeks instead of 11. Actually I think I just confused myself. Basically my point is to check with your doctor on their dating methods. Good luck ladies.
