I would like to know when you have a pelvic ultrasound at 5 weeks pregnant.... can they see the fetus already? I was told in the er, I only have a sac! and that the fetus might not develope! Im totally scared! and don't know what to think.... any ideas??j The dr. told me to check my blood level on Thurs.; and if they are hired I should be able to continue my pregnancy! Currently they are 799.3/ what ever that means! please help! Is this normal to be 5weeks and they only see the sac!???? Thanks!

  • Yes, it is completely normal. Typically, you will be able to see the embryo somewhere around 6 weeks, sometimes a little later. Wait the 2 days for the blood tests, thats the only way to know for sure.

    can you call and talk to a nurse over the phone
    sometimes you get a good one that does not talk in medical terms

  • I had a sonogram at 6 weeks and you could only see the sac. Relax. Give it time.

  • I had a pelvic u/s at 7 weeks cause I was high risk and could see the heart beating but barely. Its about 7-9 weeks that they do thos sometime I had an u/s every week and at 8 you could see it you are really early relax and GOOD LUCK.
