  • That doctor was lying. They should be able to detect it, but sometimes the baby is in a position where they can't get it. So maybe that's all it is.

  • i was just over 6 weeks when i had first scan
    there was heartbeat but very faint
    they made appt for another scan in a week
    i was worried too
    in one more week, there it was going strong

    try not to worry- did they set up tume for next scan?

    and back ache (a long with many other things can come with pregnancy)
    keep dr office informed of anything that seems odd or worries you

  • I was 5 weeks when I had an internal ultrasound & the heart beat was clearly visible & audible.

  • It's funny to how you all freak out about stuff that us grandmas, didn't even have to worry about back when we were having kids.
    I didn't have a ultrasound tell I think around 6 months. No, baby sex. I didn't even really know if I was pregnant. We didn't have pregnancy tests back then.

  • it can be quite normal not to detect a heart beat that early on, everyone is different, and I just love people saying the Dr is a liar ugh.........
