Hi, I have my first scan on Wednesday, when i will be exactly 6 weeks.  What can I expect to see?  Should I worry if they can't detect a heartbeat?

Thanks, M

Hiya Megan

I'm not a nurse or anything, but I do understand that they can't always see a heartbeat at 6 weeks and that you shouldn't worry if this is the case.

I have my dating scan today, I think I can only be 4 - 5 weeks... But I'm ever so nervous!!  I'll let you know how I get on!!

Take care
Dawn

Hi Megan

Firstly wanted to say congratulations ! I had a private scan at 6 weeks and saw the heartbeat (heard it too !!), you can't actually see very much just what looks like a circle with a blob attached to it ! (not very maternal I know)

I know that not everyone can see a nerat beat though, depends on your cycle, when you concieved etc. I also think it depends on the machine

Good luck, keep updated
