No heartbeat at ultrasound

I had an ultrasound today. Going by the date of my last period I should be 6 weeks and 3 days pregnant. There was no heartbeat but there was a fetal stem and yolk sac. With both of my other pregnancies we were able to see a heartbeat at 6 weeks. My dr. wants me to come back in 2 weeks for another ultrasound... has anyone else had a heartbeat detected later than 6 weeks?

My old ob and my new midwife both refuse to check for a heartbeat before 9 weeks so that if they don't find it, there's no worrying. Don't stress it mama!

You could be a week or so off which is why there is no heartbeat don't worry about it just yet

Didnt see this baby's til 8 weeks and didnt hear DD's until 9 weeks. Every pregnancy is different. Good Luck Momma!!! Keep us updated!

Sorry! I had a heartbeat at 4 weeks and at six weeks, and my six weeks pushed me back by 10 days in my due date.
I know it was hard for them to find and I had the transvaginal and was very uncomfy. Felt like they were trying to oush that want into my uterus...

I have went through this, kind of.. i had no heartbeat in the ER (cramping for weeks) at six weeks. they said that's normal... :S went to dr, and i was supposed to be 10 weeks, measuring six. no hb. i miscarried and ended up having a d&c.

I hope that's not your case. I really hope things go well. 

good luck Sending support!!! baby dust

 yes... with this pregnancy (#3) they "maybe" saw a twinkle... but they wouldn't say it was... and at my 2 follow up u/s things were just fine...

i've heard a bunch of times where they don't hear the heartbeat at 6 weeks. seems like it's almost always the case that when they recheck at 9 to 11 weeks it's there. wishing you good luck! :)
