Hello everyone, I am 6 weeks pregnant today, yay!! I'm so excited. As some who have read my other (many) questions, you may know that we lost our first pregnancy at 10 weeks in Aug of 06, well we are excited this time, but do not want to jump the gun on going for our 1st ultrasound to early. When have some of ya'll gone for your first and when should I go?? thanks everyone. God Bless you all.

I Think its between 16 and 20 weeks. I had mine a t 20 weeks so but I was moving at the time so I had to find a new Dr. thats why mine was late.

I had my first ultrasound at 8 weeks so that the doctor could make sure that the pregnancy was going to make it. Good Luck.

thanks, i'll talk to the doc. this week about setting one up. I think i def. want to wait till at least 8 weeks, Melissa30, did you see the baby and heartbeat?? or was it to early?? I don't know, cause when I lost my first at 10 weeks we couldn't see the baby or heartbeat in the 2 u/s's we did.

usually by 6 weeks they should be able to see a heartbeat. Normally you get a u/s at 20 weeks. But with your history of miscarriage, im sure if you asked about it your doc wouldn't have a problem with making you feel a bit better about it. Good Luck!

Hi jam. You're much more patient than I am if you can wait until 8 weeks! I recently had a mc too, and I'm planning to camp on doc's doorstep for one at the earliest possible moment they can detect a heartbeat..... then I want another at 11 weeks to see the back of the neck... of course what I want and what I get might not be the same thing...

HI! with my first pregnancy i had a few complications and had my first unlrasound at 3weeks (i didnt know then i was only 3 weeks coz i didnt have periods before then) They couldn't see a heatbeat until the next week and it was sssoooo tiny. I had an ultrasound every week after til 14 weeks and was amaxing being able to watch my baby grow. I am currenty ttc using clomid and had ultrasound everymonth to count the follicles and see when i will ovulate, if i do fall pregnant then my first ultrasound will be at 7 weeks. but i am in Wales and things may operate diferently here.
