I would be probably about 6-6.5 weeks. I have an ultrasound scheduled for Thursday. My HCG levels last wednesday were 15,000. What are the chances of seeing a heartbeat Thursday? I am very stressed as this is my second pregnancy after having a MC in March. Any advice would be greatly appreciated.

in my opinion - very likely you'll see a heartbeat! I saw mine at 6wks 3dys.


Cathy - September 20

I saw a heartbeat at 5w6d.

I saw the heartbeat at 6 weeks. You'll probaby see it and if you don't as long as the HCG is still going up it is most likely okay. Some say they didn't see the heartbeat until 8 weeks. Good luck!

Just to let you all know I just came back from my us and they saw a heartbeat. yiippeee, I totally freaked. I just hope that everything will progress normally now. Does anyone know what the chances of having a mc after seeing the heartbeat is?


bean - September 22

Everything I've read says that the chances of a m/c after seeing a h/b continue to go down throughout the first trimester, until week 13 when they are close to nil. I think I read that if you see the hb in week 7 or 8, you have a 80-something % chance of making it to the 2nd trimester. Although that doesn't sound too comforting... I try to keep telling myself that if I knew I had an 80% chance to win the lottery, would I make the bet? :)

Once you see a heart beat your % of m/c goes to only 10% I just learned that today = ) I also had a m/c in March and I am almost 6 weeks pregnant I have a us on Monday I am so scared I hope we see a heartbeat

To Cyndi, I know exactally how you feel. The only thing I would say to you is 6 weeks may be a little early to see the hb and if you don't see it don't stress. I had my first us this time at 5 weeks and they saw a sac and that was about it. Going 2 weeks later they saw the hb. Please let me know how everything goes as it sounds like we are in about the same situation almost. Take care, and good luck!

I went and had my 1st US done and they said I was 7W4D, should have been 8W3D, but they saw a stronge HB of 160. I go back again on Wednesday to find out if it is progressing. THey said the 6 days off is no big deal. I hope so. I too had a m/c in March and didn't find out until I was 10 weeks and baby only measured 7.5. I'm hopeing it all works out and best of luck to you all.


Hi Jess, - September 25

I had the same problem as you too. I went in at 8 weeks 6 days LMP. But the doc said that the baby measured only 8 weeks. but it had a good heartbeat.The doc said thats no big deal. I go in for the next ultrasound only at 13 weeks LMP. I am now 10 weeks and 5 days LMP. I had a m/c in may. So I am relly worried. Please keep us posted on how your next ultrasound goes. -kriti.
