GirlNextDoor24:I did not ask to go in sooner since 6.5w when my nurse said they do them. I'm mostly just excited and impatient and of course wondering how many are in there. I'm so sure right now that it's twins I'm almost scared if its not I'll be a little disappointed. If I'm disappointed I'll feel guilty for being ungrateful. Crazy, crazy emotions that go along with IF.
i would be going nuts in your shoes!
I personally think going in earlier to see just a gestational sac(s) isn't really useful. It would cause more worry to not see a heartbeat, which would be unlikely before 6w.
This has been standard at our 2 RE clinics.
ETA: We were really lucky and got to see a HB that day!

My first pregnancy they did one at 5w and one at 7w. The 5w one was pretty useless tho, all you could see is a sac.
This time I skipped the early ultrasounds so the A/S will be my first.
