Pregnancy Pregnancy

What can I expect from my first ultrasound? *EDIT*

I found out last night I was pregnant again. I've had two miscarriages in the last year. Including this time last year when I found out I was pregnant for the first time. So today when I called my OB they scheduled me an appointment for August 17th and then sometime in September and shortly before I got off the phone with the nurse she said that the doctor wanted to see me tomorrow and that he was going to do a bedside ultrasound. What can I expect to see at almost 6 weeks pregnant? I am 5w5d tomorrow.

EDIT-

So went to my ultrasound. I am a week behind what I thought I was. So I am 4W5D pregnant. I just saw a sac. They did a transvaginal and he ordered me to do HCG blood every couple days until my next appt. Two weeks until my next appt. I am over the moon happy that everything looks okay so far. <3

You could see a sack or you could see nothing, honestly.

I had a transvaginal US done at 5w5ds and we could see a little time speck that was baby. It's amazing how much different one at say 8 weeks can be. 8)

I'm surprised your doc would even do one that early. They usually don't do them until 8 weeks. I doubt you'll see anything. You may however see a little teeny tiny sack, maybe.

This is my third pregnancy, but first child. So I think that's why he wants to do the U/S. Maybe to make sure everything looks good?

I had an ultrasound at 5 1/2 weeks due to spotting. We saw a fat little dot that was my son and his heartbeat. :)

I know it's early still and that mostly ill see a sac at most, but I would be thrilled if I saw a heart beat.

They told me that it could be too early, but we saw it just fine. I hope you do, too, but don't panic if you don't yet. Good luck! :)

Not a whole lot
You might see a black spot (the sac) and possibly a little white blob? and thats if you're as far as you think you are

Every time I've been pregnant when I go in for the U/S they tell me I'm not as far along as I thought

it just depends, its so early you really could see nothing. I went in this early with my twins and we saw two sacs one heart beat. had to wait a week later to check on them again and surprise there was a third sac (which turned out to not be viable) and two strong heart beats. So be prepared to possibly see nothing but don't be discouraged by it if you do, it might mean nothing just that they will have to check on you again in another week or so
