Pregnant Six Weeks and No Heartbeat detected on Ultrasound
Patient : Dear Doc,
I am 31 years old. On Wednesday I had an ultrasound and the embryo measured at 6 weeks and 1 day but no heartbeat. Today, Friday of the same week, I went in again and they said it was measuring at 6 weeks and 4 days and no heartbeat.
I want to know if 6 weeks is too soon to see a heartbeat and if I should just wait till i'm at least 8 weeks.
