She said she thought she saw something but wasn't sure. She think maybe I am not as far along as we thought. First of all, a tech will always do a better job than the OBGYN...yes, they are doctors, but this is not their area of expertise. You need a transvaginal ultrasound performed by a competent tech. I went in yesterday at exactly 7 weeks and there was our little jelly bean! You little dude is in there, it just takes a little while for them to makes their appearance sometimes :) i really wouldnt worry about it my first ultra sound was when i was around 6 weeks and they didnt see my baby either. I thank GOD each and everyday that I wake up that everything is fine.
I am a little worried, but since she saw the sac I guess that is a good sign. And I only had two glasses of water all day and when I went in they made me pee in a cup. Second, the fact that your bladder wasn't full didn't help matters any. Yolk sac shrinking, heart beating, just hanging out! i went back and they had to do an ultra sound from the inside...very strange. (no bleeding, that is) I agree with Lacy Also, when I first saw my ob gyn I expressed to her my concerns.
This test is not quite as accurate as the combined test.
You will not be offered the combined screening test if your dating scan happens after 14 weeks.
Instead, you will be offered another blood test between 14 and 20 weeks of pregnancy to screen for the risk of Down's syndrome.
So two hours later when it came to do my ultrasound my bladder was not full. it turned out that the baby was just too small to see. I've had two kids, and by my understanding, they usually don't see the baby or heartbeat until around 8-12 weeks. Actually, if they see it sooner, that's NOT the norm. She used what is called a dopler I believe it is, when I was seven weeks pregnant, It looks like a wand and it was inserted vaginally.
I recently found out I was pregnant and due to the fact thatmy previous pregnancy ended in a miscarriage, my OB wanted to see my right away.
You may need to have a full bladder for this scan, as this makes the ultrasound image clearer.
