Can an ultrasound miss a fetal heart beat when it's Measuring 7wks 1 day. I'm returning in 4 days, chances of seeing a heart beat?

In brief: Vaginal? Abdominal?

In almost all cases you should get a heart-beat with vaginal ultrasound early in the 6th week.
Abdominal ultrasound won't get a heartbeat until at least 8 weeks in thin women, and can be much later. Good wishes.
