  • Wouldn't you think this would be a good question for your Dr? Just saying...

  • I personally don't see any point in doing an ultrasound so early. It doesn't give any useful information and it can cause a lot of stress (as in your case). I think the only reason they're done so early (without reasonable cause, that is) is to get more money from the patient and their insurance. Then again, I'm a cynic.

  • This is definitely a question for your Dr.

  • Ask your doctor. We are not OB/GYNs. That seems really early though. A lot women don't know they are pregnant at that point.

  • Your doc should've discussed the findings with you. What did they say? Why was an ultrasound done so early anyway?

  • Because there's nothing to see at four weeks. The egg had just barely implanted into the uterine wall. If anything you **might** see an indentation where the egg implanted. gestational sac is still to small even with the transvaginal ultrasound.
