It would be too early to detect a fetal heart at this stage. I'm sure that your gynaecologist suggested a repeat scan in about two weeks.

It is too early. They could not detect mine at 6 weeks but the urine was positive so I did not take medication that might cause a miscarriage. At 9 weeks, I threatened to miscarry and the Gynae could see clearly then that I am pregnant.

Hi Scared

My first pregnancy was not planned so when I found out my doc sent me for a scan as I had been taking medication and had alot of pain in my side. On the scan there was only a little sac of fluid at that stage and the gynae told me he wasn't sure if I was truly pregnant or not. At that stage according to my calculations I was about 5 weeks along. By 8 weeks we could see the baby and hear the heartbeat. The first scan was just done to early. Give it some time and then go for another scan.

Good luck
