A 42-year-old member asked:

is it possible to see a fetal pole in the womb, but for heartbeat tests to be negative?

No fetal heart beat: Yes. The fetal pole is seen before fetal heart tones. At about 6 weeks the fetal heart tones are seen. Ultrasounds before this time may not see fetal heat tones.
