Hi Ruth

Im going for my 1st scan this Thursday - I will be 6weeks pregnant.

Could you please explain what they look for and what needs to be there - I dont understand about sac, yolk and heatbeat and what stages these things occur.

My clinic hasnt done a beta/hcg- what is the value in having this test done? Is it worth checking one's levels each week for the 1st tri?

Many thanks Debs

You don't have to check hcg levels and in all honesty they can sometimes just give you something else to worry about!!!
The order of development is to see a sac first, then a yolk sac inside, then foetus then heartbeat. At 6 weeks you may see all of these stages!! or you may only see the first 2 as you see all anything between 5and a half and 7 weeks of pregnancy due to the varible time of implantation and how quickly or slowly pregnancies develop.
Good Luck!!!

Ruth

In my 5 week scan I saw a lil blob in a sack.

In my 7 week scan, there was a head, body, two arms, a little tail and a heartbeat. Thats how fast bubs grows.

Can't wait for my next scan on Friday :)

Good luck hun!

Dawn
