  • I am having an ultrasound on Tuesday the 8th. The doctor says he wants to look at my endometrial lining. Has anyone had an ultrasound this early? The nurse says they may see a gestational sac? Is that possible this early? (I'll be 19 DPO, 4.5 weeks pregnant). I'm sooo nervous!

  • You'll likely see very little. The baby is just so teeny tiny that you don't see much of anything before your beta is over 1,500 and no heartbeat until your beta is 6,000-10,000. We had an ultrasound with Charlotte at about 5.5 weeks and all we saw was a yolk sac and a teeny fetal pole, but no heartbeat yet.

    Still, you'll get a peek in there so that's good. Mine u/s is Wednesday but I'll be 6w5d so we're hoping to see a heartbeat.

  • Well good luck! They said we probably wouldn't see much but they want to measure my endometrial lining.
