What should you see at 6wk sono?

Hi friends,

I had a sono today and by LMP I should be 6w1d. The doctor dated me at 5w3d by the size of the gestational sac (which is all we could see). I only had a sono this early, because I miscarried my first in January. I go back in exactly one week. What did any of you guys see at 5.5wks and what should I be able to see at 6.5wks? I'm terrified I'm miscarrying again since the dating is off again...

Oh and I should add... My cycle has not been exceptionally regular since the last miscarriage, but it has never been late (past 28 days) since. So I really don't get how the dating could be off by almost a week...

  • I saw a blob that was supposed to be my baby, a very faint heartbeat, and the sac. There wasn't much at all. Good luck!

  • When I was pregnant last, they saw nothing. I was in the er for bleeding. I thought I had miscarried, but no! I went BACK to the er several days later for more bleeding and saw the baby and a strong heartbeat. It all depends. Also, sometimes dates can be off.
