question@ heartbeat detection

My sister just had her 1st U/S and is 7 weeks, sadly no heartbeat was detected. They have scheduled another U/S for next week, but it does not look good. Anyone have a similar situation where heartbeat took longer to appear?

Kim - it is not uncommon not to see HB right away. Sometimes it takes a while.

Tell her to hang in there.

Hugs, Kris
