I have early u/s because I have only one tube and anytime before 6wk I have never seen the hb, usually go back in the 6th week and have always seen the hb, but my doc has new machines!

We saw the hb on a transvaginal u/s. But lack of one shouldn't be a cause for concern.

Re: Couldn't find the heartbeat?

I agree that she needn't worry yet. It's likely that her dates are off and U/S still have their flaws. I would be nervous too just because it's hard to not know, but it is common to not see the HB right away.

Re: Couldn't find the heartbeat?

I knew exactly when I concieved this one and thought I was having an eptopic and they did a transvaginal u/s. I was about 6 weeks. The dr. just barely got a blip of a heart beat. He was very very patient and just when we was about to give up there it was. Two weeks later at 8 weeks there was a very strong heart beat.

((HUGS)) to your family and hope the week goes by quickly.
