my 2nd appt was today. Last week my my last period I should have been 6weeks..he said heres a picture but too early for the heart beat, come back next thursday. Today i go back in at what is supposed to be 7 weeks and he says..i think you are earlier than we thought because there is still no heartbeat but the baby now looks like a 6 week fetus. Ive already had 2 miscarrages so im kinda freaking out...but all my symptoms are still here and no spotting....thoughts? Attached both u/s scans...

I don't have any experience or knowledge on this, but sending healthy baby vibes your way. Hopefully you will get all the reassurance you need very soon. :)

Did you maybe O later than you thought? When do you get to go back? Try not to worry, I know that is easier said than done though.

If you look at the second picture it says the baby is measuring at 6 wk 5 days, which is almost 7 wks where you should be. I was recently in school for US (didn't finish casue of med issues) and I believe 5 weeks is the earliest you can see anything vaginally so at 6 or 7 wks things are really tiny. It is possible that he just couldn't see the flicker of the heart. Even for techs that work every day it can be hard to see and get a heart rate especially vaginally. I'll still send lots of sticky vibes your way!

I do have experience with this because my dr moved my EDD back 10 days with my 2nd pregnancy because the baby wasn't measuring right. I knew my LMP was 2/28 but he still thought I didn't conceive until later on in my cycle. I delivered my fiesty little boy at 37 weeks :) Good luck and keep us posted. Thinking of you!
