How far along do you think you might be? It is really hard to see anything early on!

At 7 weeks you should really be able to see at least something. I was always able to see fetal pole and heartbeat before then. However, it's possible that you ovulated late and aren't that far along.

They are trained to look at them and I am sure they would have said something to you if they thought there was something wrong.

Were they not able to see a gestational sac, or just not a fetal pole? I'm confused because there's nothing else they can check that would determine gestation.

Well it's possible you ovulated late or your uterus is tilted or something. There was a sac right?

By 8 weeks you can usually see something. I saw my last baby really early. Try not to worry but I can't blame you for being concerned.

Good luck.

Hmm idk. Seems odd. What is the next step for you because like the rest said its more likely to see something at that age. When they didn't see anything for me they did a hormone test to determine if baby was still alive. Are they doing the same for you?
