  • Symptoms come and go. There is a very wide range of "normal" in pregnacy. Every pregnancy is different. There was no heartbeat on the ultrasound?

  • At 5 weeks it can be really hard to see the heartbeat. Pregnancy symptoms do seem to come and go, or we even get used to them so they seem to just go away. Don't panic, there isn't anything to worry about!

  • I thought there wasn't a heartbeat visible on ultrasound until 7 weeks, but I could be wrong.

  • I've never had an ultrasound that early. Earliest I've had one was 10 weeks.

  • According to this website it is about 6 1/2 weeks when you can see a heartbeat. I have had many ultrasounds when I was pregnant with my now 2 year old. I was having bleeding every week for the first 3 or 4 months. Wasn't ever much but it had me worried enough to go the the hospital. I'm thinking it was one of these trips where I was told they couldn't see a heartbeat until around 7 weeks.

  • It's probably all in your head. Worrying yourself that something is wrong. I did a lot of worrying with my second one, and they couldn't find anything to cause the bleeding at all.

  • I agree with the other mamas, I think 5 weeks is too early to see a heartbeat, and definitely too early to hear it. With DD #1 I was in a car accident (nothing HUGE, I was rear-ended and it did put my car out of commission a few days) at 11 weeks and my doc said if I was concerned to go into L&D and have them check me. The nurses in L&D seemed frustrated because baby was SO tiny and SO far down in my pelvis there was nothing they could really check for. They didn't do an ultrasound but they DID try (is it a sonogram?) to put the microphone thing on my belly to just HEAR the heartbeat. I couldn't hear anything but they said they faintly caught a heartbeat here & there, but I think they just said that to get me outta there. :\

    I think you'll be OK. Symptoms DO come & go and you might be a lucky mama who has an easy pregnancy with no sickness or too much discomfort. Good luck at your appointment!! I'll be thinking of you...

  • I had an ultrasound done at 5 weeks that they could determine the heart was beating, but I sure couldn't see it. All I saw was a little sac with a white dot on it. Every baby develops at a different pace though, and I personally thought I was further along than they claimed.

    Symptoms do come and go, but if you're really concerned, call your ob/gyn and talk to them. They'll either tell you there's nothing to worry about, or they'll ask you to come in for some tests to make sure everything is ok. Good luck Mumma!
