Looking for some info/advice on best time for an early scan.
Currently 5wks pregnant based on date of last period. I usually receive an early scan to check for viable pregnancy before prescribing clexane, due to a history of DVT.
Suffered a MMC back in February, discovered at 11wks. During that brief pregnancy was scanned at 6wks, where sac was empty, then at 8wks when a heartbeat was found.
Keen to have an early scan, but don’t want to go and not detect anything as too early, as that would just have me on tenterhooks. Is 6wks too early if you generally ovulate at day 14 in cycle (i.e. 4wks since ovulation)? Should I wait till 7-8wks?
I would say wait until 7 weeks if you can. We had an early scan at 6 weeks and could only see gestational sac and yolk sac. We had to come back at 8 weeks for a follow up where we saw the heartbeat. Good luck
Agree, I would wait until 7-8 weeks. Ideally 8 weeks if possible. I've had scans at 7, 8 and 9 weeks. The 7 week one was reassuring (heartbeat found, all growing just fine and as he should have been), but it wasn't very satisfying. The 8 and 9 week ones were much more emotionally satisfying because I could see more and I walked away feeling much more confident and comfortable.
