    If you are having an ultrasound, it will be an internal and you probably will be able to see a heartbeat if you are at six weeks.

    As for the needles you will have to get used to it. I have already been jabbed three or four times

    I hope your appointment goes well

    Hi heather

    It is possable to hear/see the heartbeat at 6 weeks but it is often very difficult to find at this age. You should see something shaped a little like a jellybean or a peanut. But depending on the position of your baby you may just see a little dot.
    And now for the needles, sorry but yes you do have a few to come

    Heather,

    My GP always gave me a thorough check up at my first app. he checked my breasts (so as to notice changes throughout the PG), blood pressure, weight. I didn't have to have any needles until 9 wks (blood tests for blood typing, HIV etc). hope this helps.

    cheers, sherieb
