I had a ultrasound last friday,7 to 8 weeks pregnant,and there was a very strong heart beat,which is an excellent sign if your worried about a miscarraige, which I was ,having already had one!

i was wondering about the weeks... is that number of weeks you are or how old the baby is? cause this one website says i'm 6weeks pregnant but the baby is only like 3-4 weeks old... so is it by my weeks or the baby's??? cause my docs appt is wheni will be about 71/2 weeks and i hope i hear the babys heartbeat and see it on the u/s....

I had my u/s at 6w2d and there was a heartbeat.

You can usually hear the baby's heartbeating by the 6th-7th week...do remember that sometimes they have your weeks determined wrong which may make it seem like you should already be hearing one...and it goes by how many weeks you are into the pregnancy...the baby's growth will always be 2 weeks behind...if you are 8 weeks the fetus is 6 weeks...good luck

I had an ultrasound with no heartbeat. My cycles are about 32 days, Last period was 6 weeks & 3 days ago. I believe (have been charting bbt) I ovulated 3 wks 4 days ago. Dr. said it is most likely too early to detect a heartbeat. I'm worried, any thoughts?

I heard a weak heartbeat at 6 weeks(98). Does anyone have any advice, is this reason to worry, or could it be weak b/c it was too early?

I finally did see/hear a heartbeat at 7.5 weeks. It was slow (95 bpm). 3 days later, I began cramping and spotting. I was so worried so I went to the Dr. and found out that the heart had stopped. I thought if a heartbeat was detected before 8 weeks everything would be fine. The fetal deveopment was slow and the heartrate was slow. I think those are red flags. it's not just seeing a heartbeat - but a strong and normal heartbeat is important. Also, my pregnancy symptoms seemed to become milder (except the sore b___sts). I was so devastated to lose my first pregnancy. I am 32 years old and desperately want to be able to have a child with my husband. I demanded tests to see if there was something wrong with me. Turns out I have a genetic blood clotting problem - MTHFR mutation, heterozygous. A high dose of folic acid and asprin should help, but I'm scared to try again. Anyone else with a similar situation? My mom miscarried 3 times before me and once more before my brother. I think I got the mutation from her. So scared to go through this again...
