Dr. appt tomorrow and nervous

I have a 2nd u/s scheduled for tomorrow at 12:40pm (EST). We are hoping to see a heartbeat. Please send good thoughts my way... I am so worried that something will go wrong. DH can't make it because of a meeting and I just do not want to deal with bad news on my own. I will only be 6w tomorrow, so do you think that is too early to see a HB? On the plus side, I have been dealing with light m/s all day long (no puking yet) so I hope that's a good sign.

They say six weeks is when you can see a heartbeat! But don't be discouraged if you don't. It's still early!! Good luck! Smile

I think 6 weeks is pretty borderline on whether or not you will be able to see a heartbeat or not. But good luck!!! I am sure that everything will go great.

Wishing you all the best at your appt tomorrow!!! I am right there with you. I had an US at 5w3d and we say the yolk sac and all that so I have an US tomorrow as well, hoping to see the heartbeat. My DH also has a meeting and can't make it Sad Here is to hoping we both have great appts tomorrow!!!!!!

I just googled what I should expect to see at 6w. Carissa, thought you might be interested so the link is below. They detail what can be seen by u/s week by week (in early development).

Good Luck at the appt...
I had my first sono at baby measured 6w 1d - DH said he saw a small flicker, but Dr. wanted me to come back in 3 weeks to get a better look and hear / see the heartbeat stronger - so as previous poster said it is borderline...

BUT if you are having mornincg sickness - I think its a good sign...
