What does a 4 weeks ultrasound look like!? I see pictures that show nothing but the uterus and then others actually show a fetus. What is a 4 week ultrasound really supposed to look like, is there supposed to be a fetus or just a placenta if that's what the big empty space is called before the fetus develops lol !?

  • The tech will tell you what the baby is measuring. Which is usually how big the baby is + 2 weeks.

  • nothing is there at 4 weeks. maybe a yolk sac that looks like a small empty circle.

  • a 4 week ultrasound is not going to look like much because it hasn't developed into a baby yet. I had one done at 4 weeks and I was like, awwwww... what is it? lol

  • just a sac because its not formed into anything yet. Even at 8 weeks it just looks like a jellybean. if someone is showing you a ultrasound of a 4 week old baby that looks like a fetus its not real...

  • Most people don't get ultrasounds that early because it won't appear as much more than an empty space. :) 20 weeks is typically when they first start getting serious about having them done though sometimes a situation calls for one earlier.

  • So if the doctor says that your 6 weeks according to the ultrasound measurement does that mean your really 4 weeks and they added 2 weeks to it? or does that mean 6 weeks ago you got pregnant?!
