yes, you can see the heartbeat on an ultrasound.

what if ultrasound doesn't detect a fetus at 5 to 6 weeks?

Unfortunately not likely - it should detect the heartbeat by then

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!

Obstetrical ultrasound examinations may alter the anticipated due date or detect abnormalities or defects in the fetus.

Around week 5. Week 6 is when you can hear it in a ultrasound.

The fetus usually develops a heartbeat at week 5 but it is not always strong enough to be detected through an ultrasound at this time yet.

Using transvaginal ultrasound, a fetus is detectable by ultrasound at around 5 weeks. Even a heartbeat can be detected.

In early pregnancy (about five to seven weeks), ultrasound may determine the size of the fetus to confirm the suspected due date, detect multiple fetuses, or confirm that the fetus is alive (viable).

This is at the lower limit of seeing a heartbeat so it is possible, but if a heartbeat is not seen it is not necessarily bad news.

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.

This procedure, however, cannot detect biochemical or chromosomal alterations in the fetus.

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.

yess my babies heartbeat was 176 at my first ultrasound. It slows down the farther along you get until its ready to beat on its own without your help after you have the baby.

Normally a fetus heartbeat is not heard until 10-12 weeks with a doplar ultrasound device. With a stethoscope somewhere around the 17-18 weeks. 6 weeks is very early to be detecting a heartbeat! Good Luck!

Ultrasound can calculate the age of the fetus almost accurately.

can a 5 week fetus show on an ultrasound

The size of the fetus, to detect multiple or ectopic pregnancy, to confirm the fetus is alive, to confirm the due date, reveal defects in fetus, to check the placenta, position of the fetus, growth of the fetus.

You could see a heartbeat if they do a transvaginal ultrasound.

You must go for a second opinion. When the fetal heartbeat is present there must be a fetus. Sometimes a woman can have an ectopic pregnancy and the fetal heartbeat can be heard, but the fetus is not in utero. It is in the fallopian tube. This is a serious condition so you should definitely get a second ultra sound. ASAP!!!

You can see the heartbeat, and even hear the heartbeat at your monthly ultrasound by your 17th week of pregnancy.. sometimes they can find it earlier.

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.

No. The fetus is so small at that point sometimes it is hard to detect the heartbeat to hear it.

It is quite common, particularly if it is before about 10 weeks, but it can also show that the baby has died

Yes. All fetuses have a heartbeat, they're all happy. Hi Franky, Gustavo, and Alexis ! I told you a fetus has a heartbeat, it's in the answer. ;D
