ultrasound

When is the first time an ultrasound(transvaginal) can pick up the embryo? I had a transvaginal and at three weeks they couldnt really see anything...is that normal?

  • Ok so a few weeks ago I had a + test. Well I went to the dr right away because ive had an ectopic before. She wanted to do an ultrasound. They only seen a thickening endometrium. No baby. It turns out I had conceived a week and a half before the ultrasound. So I went back and I'm 6 weeks. The baby showed up really good on the ultrasound. But id say after 5 and a half weeks they might see a sac. I was so scared when they didnt see anything the frist time. But I had no idea I wasnt that far along.

  • At three weeks there's not much to see, Do you have a repeat visit in the near future?
