I had my first U/S today and we saw one little gestational sac that measured 3mm. I am between 5 and 6 weeks and will be 6 weeks on Friday.

I think that the "pole" is the fetal heartbeat or what eventually becomes the heartbeat.

Yay Melissa!!! Congratulations and I wouldn't worry about the cramping. It is a very normal part of pregnancy and shouldn't be a problem unless it is persistent and accompanied by blood. There lots of stretching a such going on in there:-)

Susan V. The fetal pole is a thickening on the margin of the yolk sac of a fetus during pregnancy. It is usually identified at 6.5 weeks with abdominal ultrasound imaging, and 6 weeks with vaginal ultrasound imaging. However it is quite normal for the fetal pole to not be visible until about 8 weeks. The fetal pole may be seen at 2-4 mm crown-rump length (CRL), and heart motion is often detected when it is seen. In the embryo, the heartbeat is seen as a regular flutter, which should be first evident at 5 mm CRL. If the embryo is less than 5 mm CRL, it is possible for it to be healthy without showing a heartbeat, though a follow up study in 5-7 days will almost always demonstrate the heartbeat.
