Heartbeat at 6w0 ??

Postby justxher » Fri Oct 23, 2015 8:33 am

Hi everyone I need some advice! I have an early ultrasound booked and found out it will be at exactly 6w0 days. I believe I O'ed on CD15 instead of 14 so I'm worried I'm a day behind and won't see a heartbeat at only 5w6d. Have any of you seen a heartbeat this early?? I don't know if they will agree to reschedule but I am worried as I know it will stress me out a lot not seeing it. In my last 2 pregancies I was able to see it at 6w5 and 6w6 so I have no idea if it would have been there this early.

You may not be able to see a heartbeat. It begins around 6 weeks, but it can be hard to pick up via ultrasound at that point - and at 5w6d it might be just a little bit too soon, especially if there's a possibility that you had a delayed implantation.

I hope this will make you feel better if you can't see it! If you still think it would be really stressful, I'd definitely ask if you could reschedule for 7 or 8 weeks, and explain that given your history it is really important to you that the heartbeat be easily found.

Good luck, and congrats on your recent BFP! I've got my fingers crossed for a happy & healthy 9 months for you :)

With my DS she was barely able to see the hb at 5w5d, but not until the very end of the appointment and not even well enough to take a count. She was shocked when she found it and said in 15 years she had never seen one that early, that's it's usually in the 6th week you can see it. BUT, before she found it, they told me since they weren't finding it I could come back for an additional scan in a week or two. Maybe you can call and tell them you are scared they won't find the hb, and if they can't what is the protocol? If you an get two covered at 6 and 8 that would be super fun!

thanks frostedfuji and amanda. I tried to reschedule but nothing is available that works for us both so looks like 6w0 days it is. I did implant early, I'm hoping it works in my favour. Otherwise I'll have to wait till 9 weeks to listen on my doppler!

Hi justxher, I was wondering if you ended up seeing a heartbeat? I have an appointment on December 28 and I will be 5weeks 6days.

Yes I did! It was 115 bpm :) I am pretty sure of my dates too so I know I wasn't farther ahead than that. But the fetal pole was so small it was really just a tiny bright white spec next to the yolk sac lol.

Good luck on your apt! 5w6 is quite early but if the u/s equipment is really good then you might see it.
