  • you normally cant see the heartbeat until after 9wks..thats why they make you wait so long usually to do the first u/ guess would be the pains are probably from the bladder infection bc they can be painful at times depending on how bad it is...congrats and try not to worry so much it will give you stress you dont need

  • the pain is most likely from the bladder infection. Drink a ton of water. If you were miscarrying the doctor would be able to tell you. And six weeks is too soon to hear it most of the time. Stress will make everything worse dear. Try to just stay calm. =]

  • Try not to stress. Relax and take it easy. If you are in the process of m/c there isn't much you can do to stop it. I hope everything works out for you! *hugs*

  • Stop worrying! It most likely was too early to hear the HB!

  • The heat starts beating at 18 days, but isn't always detectable. It's easier to detect it via vaginal ultrasound, which only started being used between my 3rd and 4th. With the older one I had to wait months before I got to hear it with the old dopplers.

  • Most doctors dont check for heartbeat until 8-10 weeks pregnant because you usually cant hear it before then.
