When did everyone first see the yolk sac and hear their baby's heartbeat? I'm only 5 weeks but had my first scan today due to severe abdominal pain and they couldn't see anything in the gestational sac or hear heart beat which sonographer said was normal at this time. I then had my third blood test and my HCG levels were at 3500 (has been doubling normally) but Nurse called to say they should have seen something in scan with HCG levels that high so my pregnancy might not be viable. Next blood test on Monday but now am panicking!
I didn't see anything more than sac/yolk sac when I was 5w. No follow up scan either...I had further bleeding but preferred to wait & see than go for another dildo scan. Beans only literally a dot at that stage.
Try not to worry too much. My invisible heart beat less bean is nearly 36w & kicking me to death!
I haven't heard the hb on mine yet and I'm 15+6. My hospital doesn't seem to do that. I have however had 4 scans (due to illness) one each at 6, 8, 11 and 13wks and SAW the hb on the screen on all. Was clearly visible at both 6 and 8wks. But I think it also depends on both the sonographer and the equipment their using as the first three scans I had were done at the EPU and all three were really clear pictures and hb was really visible within a few mibs, but my 12wk scan at the mw centre was another story - took her almost an hour with me drinking more/letting some out/jiggling around to get a good image on the screen and check everything, and actually the scan I had at 11wks is a lot clearer than the 13wk one! So fx for you I hope all is ok and you just had an inexperienced sonographer or crappy system used that day
I had heavy bleeding at 5 and 6 weeks. Could see the gestational sac and yolk sac at 5 weeks. Didn't see the heartbeat until 7 weeks. At 10 weeks could see legs, arms and hands. At 5 weeks everything is so tiny - at 7/8 weeks they have a much better idea of what is going on. Really hope it works out for you. xx
