Prior to that you just can't be sure so you'd have to come back again if you didn't find it anyway. I skipped most scans 2nd time round and ended up much more relaxed.
I've just looked at the calendar and it looks like I'd be somewhere in the region of 6-8 weeks when Hubby comes home from work. Right - I've taken matters into my own hands Just rang the scanning place (gosh, I'm good with words, aren't I?! So - it's been rebooked for hubby's first week home in January. There is one frightened pregnant lady sat here typing this!!! Definitely waiting is better - at 5 weeks the odds are you'd see nothing, which would be so upsetting (and perhaps unnecessarily so).I'm tempted to wait until then so I can see a heartbeat... It's weird - I'm scared of the wait ahead, but also relieved that the worry of tomorrow has been lifted. I was told to go for more bloods at the same time as my scan - I'm guessing I should just wait and do both together in January now? My clinic (I only conceived with IVF) does the early scan at 8 weeks to be sure that they'll see a heartbeat if it's viable.I don't particularly want to go and have them see nothing I know at the minute this is very likely.My doctor is now on annual leave so I can't speak to him again until the New Year about it. The minute I said how far along-ish I am she immediately agreed that it would be a bit silly going earlier than 7-8 weeks ish as I'd just be called back and might be disappointed by how little can be seen right now.My doctor is now on annual leave so I can't speak to him again until the New Year about it.
I've just looked at the calendar and it looks like I'd be somewhere in the region of 6-8 weeks when Hubby comes home from work. If you're someone that will worry if you don't see the heartbeat (even though you know it's too early) then waiting would probably be better. Good luck with your pregnancy, hope you have a H&H 9 months Thanks ladies Mad B - I'm pretty early along. My husband is FIFO and is away from mid next week until the New Year.
