    Hi Missy,

    We went in this morning and saw a heartbeat for the first time! I'm 7 weeks, 6 days. We also had a scan a couple of weeks ago and just saw the sac. Hard to tell how much earlier we could have had the scan we had this morning before seeing something.

    Missy- With my DD I had an ultrasound a few days past 6 weeks and we could see her heartbeat. *IF* im remembering right, they said it can show up betweem 6-8 weeks (dont hold me on that though)

    Missy, I had my first scan at 5 weeks as well and only saw the sac. My next scan was at 8 weeks and I saw and heard the heartbeat for the first time then at 8 weeks.

    Too true Lindsay...and at the 12 week scan you see so much more. At 8 weeks it's just a blob, but at 12 weeks it looks like a baby and moves like a baby..hehe

    Hi Missy,

    I had my scan at 8 weeks and 1 day, and saw the heartbeat so I'm guessing you'd see it between 6-8 weeks?

    Good luck with it all!
