Hi Angela,

5 or 6 weeks is the very, very earliest that an ultrasound can pick up a fetal heartbeat.

It's very hard to date a pregnancy precisely, since every woman's cycle is different. When your doctor gives you a due date and tells you "you're six weeks along", really that's just an estimate.

If they didn't see a heartbeat, one very likely explanation is simply that you're not quite as far along as you thought. Being even a few days off in your dates can mean the difference between seeing a heartbeat or not. That's why your doctor is going to check again in a week.
