yes, you can see the heartbeat on an ultrasound.
Unfortunately not likely - it should detect the heartbeat by then
Typically after five weeks an ultrasound can detect pregnancy. Although you may not be able to see the heartbeat, you may see a thickening of the uterine lining that indicates pregnancy.
A baby's heartbeat may not be heard until the 10th week of pregnancy. A baby's heartbeat can usually be found by using an ultrasound.
A vaginal ultrasound could possibly detect an audible heartbeat at 4 weeks, which would be six weeks since your LMP.
i would say no
It depends on the way it was tested. If using a hand-held machine sometimes the heartbeat cannot be found at 8 weeks. If the doctor was using an ultrasound machine a heartbeat should be visible at 8 weeks. The doppler, which most doctors use to detect a fetal heartbeat, can usually not detedt the heart until around 10 weeks, especially if the woman is overweight. As stated above, the ultrasound can detect it sooner.
It is quite common, particularly if it is before about 10 weeks, but it can also show that the baby has died
It's not likely. The ultrasound might not even be able to detect a heartbeat yet. If you do see anything at all, it will be more like a little tiny dot!
can listen for the fetal heartbeat with a stethoscope, use Doppler ultrasound to detect the heartbeat, or give the mother an electronic fetal nonstress test. In this test, the mother lies on her back with electronic monitors attached to her abdomen.
what if ultrasound doesn't detect a fetus at 5 to 6 weeks?
Yes, it is possible at least sometimes to see the defect during an ultrasound.
Obstetrical ultrasound examinations may alter the anticipated due date or detect abnormalities or defects in the fetus.
You shouldn't be big at all. At five weeks pregnant you have just developed an embryo. An ultrasound typically will not even be able to detect a heartbeat yet.
Yes, ultrasound can detect cancer. Ultrasound uses sound waves to create an image of parts of the body which may contain tumours. Ultrasound is useful to detect tumours in soft parts of the body, such as the liver. It is cheaper and more portable than other ways of cancer detection.
Not necessarily. Every baby develops differently. Usually your doctor will schedule you to come back for another ultrasound in a few weeks to check again. If they can not detect one by 10 weeks, there may be a problem.
No No Not true. I am living proof, got an ultrasound thinking that I was 8 weeks pregnant to detect a heartbeat, only surprise I was in fact only 6 weeks pregnant with three amniotic sacs with three embryo's meaning triplets. However, I have to wait yet again to detect any heartbeat activity.
Yes very good most do not detect heartbeat til 8-10 weeks :D
Yes, at times it can, but there are times when a baby is born with it after an ultrasound that did not detect it.
