So after a small scare that involved some pink/brown bleeding for a day, I took two blood tests to see how my hCG levels are rising. I also had a transvaginal ultrasound today. I didn't expect to hear a heartbeat or even see a baby as I figured I was only about 5.5 weeks along, accouding to LMP which was Oct 3rd. Well I saw the baby and I was able to hear the heartbeat. 101 per minute. The nurse says she thinks I'm at 4.5 weeks but it's too early to tell. I'm not an expert but isn't that way too early to see the baby/hear a beat? I'm not familiar with the vaginal ultrasound but from what I've read you can't hear the heart beat until 6-7 weeks, but maybe they just mean a regular ultrasound? Also my cycle has always been irregular ranging for 26 -35 days but recently it's been about 28-29...should I be a little concerned she thinks I'm a week behind? Or is it safe to say the heartbeat has put me in the clear for at least a bit?
