hi, i am 6week preg. and today i went to the hopital for the ultrasound their the doc. told me the baby is very small and they could not find the heartbeat and she also told me that we don't have result yet it will take couple of days. I don't know that everything is fine or not. Plz if somebody experience like this reply me and i also wanna know that when everything is fine the doc. don't tell u the result right away is that true....

Monica - Sometimes the heartbeat cannot be seen at 6 weeks, it may just be too early. 8 weeks is said to be critical for a heartbeat. I think you normally get the results straight away good or bad.

thanks!! justine i think u are right that it is too early to see the heart beat but the doc who did the u/s in hospital today she said let me show this to the radiologist and we were waiting outside then she came and said well, u will get your result in couple of days period. Now i have to wait right..........sometime i think why we all are not doc.

I wouldn't worry yet. The heart isn't fully developed until 8 weeks. When I went in at 9 wks. my dr. told me to not worry if we didn't hear the heart beat b/c it is sometimes 11 wks before you can hear the heart beat. So I would just relax - easier said than done.

I think it may also depend on the u/s equipment. But usually a hospital has good u/s equipment. I went to the ER at 6wks due to some spotting and the tech was able to hear the heart beat but it was slow 95bpm and had to try several times to find it. My doctor said it was still early and not to worry about the slow heart beat. I went back a week later and was able to hear a strong heart beat 153 bpm. I wouldn't give up hope yet. But I think you should have a follow up ultasound done. That is really the only was you and the doctor will be able to tell if things are progressing. I hope this helps.
