I was hoping someone could answer my question...
When is the earliest a heartbeat can be detected? Did any of you have an early scan which showed one?
Hoping you're all well,

I think its 5 weeks generally but may be earlier according to some sites. I heard with early scan and little one at 6 weeks.

It's between 6 and 7 weeks - tho it can be earlier, they don't like to check for one earlier because it might worry you! I had my early scan at 6+5 and they saw a heartbeat (with abdominal scan) so maybe an internal would have been earlier. If you go for an early scan, ask for a picture because it's amazing to look back at that little bean and think wow that's my baby! xxxxx

I saw mine at 5.5 weeks but they said this was quite early, think its usually at about 6-7 weeks xx

I had an internal last week at 5 and 3 days and they couldn't see one then i had an abdominal one yesterday at 6 weeks and 3 days and the clinical report said that heart pulsations were seen.

Thanks for your replies ladies. Did a bit of research too and it does seem to be around the 6 week mark.
I ask because I got a bfp this week (hooray after 2 consec mcs and a lot of upset) and because I have recently been diagnosed with a blood clotting thing, I need to begin injections as soon as a heartbeat is detected.
Had a scan on thurs which showed I was roughly 4 weeks and am booked in for next thurs when I'll be about 5 weeks. Your replies have reassured me that should no heartbeat be seen next week, it's too early to panic (although I'm sure I will be a bit gutted at waiting another week to find out!).
Really appreciate all your replies and hope that you're all doing great,
Love Em xxxxxxxxxxxxxx

TTC for a year!
hello ladies, me and my other half have been trying for a year now, and nothing. 😥 im going to ring the doctors and get into speak to them.. has anyone been in my position.. and gone to the doctors, but can explain what they say/do.. maybe being referred to a clinic to get scanned etc. Really worried tbh, I have one child already and he as 2 in a previous relationship. But I am forever worrying something is wrong and so is he. Any advice would be great thank you x
