  • Um exactly how many ultrasounds have you had??? If they don't see a baby more than likely you aren't pregnant, I mean when I was pregnant they waited until I was so far along.....I have never met a doctor who will give you more than one ultrasound within a certain time frame.

  • The earliest a doctor can get a baby's heartbeat on a doppler inside the womb is 9 weeks... any earlier and it might not be able to be heard! Hope this helps... on the flip side you should take into account your size. If you are smaller it might happen sooner and if you are larger than it may happen a little later

  • Try not to have them do too many ultrasounds. It can make the child slow to learn speech. My neighbor had weekly ultrasounds through her preganancies. Both kids talked late and one still had trouble speaking clearly at age 10.

  • If they arent seeing a baby, or sac, you probably aren't. We saw ours at 5 weeks through internal.

  • Let me put your mind at ease. Diagnostic Ultrasound has NEVER been shown to cause any harmful affects to a fetus. To my knowledge, there are NO ultrasounds machines that are capable of using frequencies in any known harmful range.

    Most ultrasound machines have their obstetrical settings at the lowest ranges possible and we try to minimize using what is called doppler. Doppler shows blood flow and is usually not used a lot during an exam.

    In America, it is quite common for women to have multiple ultrasounds during a pregnancy. I have done as many as 10 ultrasounds on a mother, when there is a problem we are following. For example: a woman with twins, towards the end of the 3rd trimester, may come in every week to have an ultrasound.I checked with our Physical Therapist here and asked her about therapeutic ultrasound (for healing only) frequencies. She said that she has never heard of any harmful affects of ultrasound in h
