  • It's too early. I had this as well they made me follow up 2wks later and sure enough baby was there this time visible. He is now a happy 9 month old

  • it is too early to tell! most of the time the baby is visible by 8 weeks.

  • I had an ultra sound at 7 weeks and there was no issue finding my baby bean. If the doctors aren;t concerned though you shouldn't be either. :0)

  • I wish they would quit doing U/s before 8 weeks. It is rarely voisable and all it does is scare the crap out of women. Sometimes causing so much stress to put the pregnancy in real danger. As a nurse this frustrates the heck out of me. What they saw is very normal. Try to relax and take a deep breath. Worrying won't change anything for the good.

  • dont worry just yet when i went to the doc my 6week the baby didnt have a heartbeat and then i went back at 8weeks and they couldnt find her, the doc looked for almost 10mins and nothing and when he went to show me that i lost the baby we find her in a weird spot and now im 30weeks so dont worry just yet

  • Yea I've had 4 mcs and I have never once gotten an us before 9 weeks even w my history they said there was no reason to look too soon at 7 wks they said they might not see it and ddnt want to freak me out when do you go back in ?and did you get quant levels checked

  • Like I said on your other post, you are not far along enough to see anything but that. LMP and due dates are approximate not exact. Relax, take a bath or so something that mellows you out.

  • what are quant levels? my hcg was at 10, 700

  • Your levels are approx 5 weeks. You are just fine! Miscarriage is a lot lower than that.

    Answer by Musicmom80 at 8:25 PM on Oct. 3, 2010

  • most of the time at 6 weeks it's very difficult to find the sac and yolk etc.

    Wait until 8-10 weeks and get another ultrasound.
