I am 6 weeks pregnant. Ultrasound today, yolk sac normal, faint heartbeat. Doctor said gestational sac is small a week behind. Will I miscarry?

Early ultrasound: My guess is that you are going to have a follow up scan as there is no mention of a fetal pole or measurement for dating purposes.? Seeing a heart flicker is a positive sign that should be reassuring. I would simply ask for a follow up exam. ...Read more

Sonogram (Definition)

I had an early ultrasound today- I am 6 weeks pregnant. My re said everything looked fine, but no heartbeat yet. Is this okay?

I had an early ultrasound today- I am 6 weeks pregnant. My re said everything looked fine, but no heartbeat yet. Is this okay?

No worries yet: It is very early in the pregnancy and not visualizing a heartbeat, especially if your dates are off by even a couple of days, is not unusual and should not be concerning. Most accurate ultrasound dating occurs at 8 to 13 weeks, at which point a heartbeat should be readily identifiable. ...Read more

6 weeks pregnant no feal heartbeat on ultrasound?

6 weeks pregnant no feal heartbeat on ultrasound?

Depends: Did they actually see an embryo? If they saw an embryo over 5 mm long and there was no heart beat, then that is consistent with failed pregnancy. Otherwise, it just might be too early. Should get a followup. ...Read more

Would u be able to see a heartbeat on a ultrasound done at 6 weeks pregnant?

Would u be able to see a heartbeat on a ultrasound done at 6 weeks pregnant?

Often yes: The earliest you can see a fetus with a heartbeat is about 5 1/2 weeks. This early though needs to be a very modern high tech machine and with a transvaginal probe. 6.5 weeks is more common on average sono machines. ...Read more

Went for an ultrasound at 6 weeks pregnant due to spotting and the dr told me he only sees an empty sac is this normal ?

Went for an ultrasound at 6 weeks pregnant due to spotting and the dr told me he only sees an empty sac is this normal ?

Maybe: At 6 weeks, you might see a fetal heart beat, but you might not. It is more concerning, though, that the yolk sac is absent. This is present by about 5 weeks. Ask for a repeat scan in one week. ...Read more
