Pregnant after a Loss

Viability Scan just short of 8 weeks anyone?

Doctors office called today asking if I would like an early viability scan/ultrasound to ease my mind coming off a loss last month. Anyone else had one of these? I know it's just an early ultrasound to see all is well. But is that too early to even get a heartbeat? I will just about be 8 weeks.

 

Thank you in advance!

    By 8 weeks you should be able to see a heartbeat. Heart usually starts beating around early in the 6th week. I like having an ultrasound in the 7th or 8th week to know what's happening in there!

    I had my viability u/s on Monday at 6w4d and we got to see baby with a heartbeat. It made me feel a lot better about this pregnancy!

  • Thank you all so much. This is reassuring. It will certainly give me peace of mind and if something weren't right I'd rather know sooner. Is it just a small little ball at that point? I can't imagine its very big!

  • I had mine at 6w2d and there was a heartbeat. You should absolutely do it!
  • I had a viability/dating ultrasound done at 6w2d last pregnancy, which ended in MC. I have an appt for 6w3d this time around for a viability/dating ultrasound.  Really hoping to see the little heartbeat by then!

  • I will be having an early u/s somewhere around the 7 week mark +/- . I don't know if that's standard at my office or because of my history. I am glad to do this though since last time we didn't find our until my nt scan the babies had passed in the eighth week already.

  • With DS I heard/saw his hb at exactly 8 weeks (he measured 7w3d which was exactly right according to O) and he looked like a little gummy bear. You can see where the head is and there are little nubs for arms and legs. Pretty darn cute. Hope it goes well!

  • Go for it!  I had them at starting at 5 weeks & had one every week until 9 weeks.  Now I go every 2 weeks for check ups.  I love when they pull out the US machine.  :-)

    ALL ARE WELCOME
  • You should definitely be able to see a heartbeat at 8 weeks. They can also make sure that the embryo is implanted in the uterus.
  • I had my viability scan at 5w6d and there was a heartbeat.
  • We saw a heartbeat at 6w3d. It was wonderful to get that peace of mind so early.
