I had an early pregnancy scan at 5 1/2 weeks and i couldn't really see anything, just the yolk sack with a tiny dot which was the baby. I had a further scan at 7 weeks, again the baby was tiny, like a grain of rice, but amazingly i could see the heart beating really clearly.

One can tell how far along they are in pregnancy by having an ultrasound. An ultrasound measures the fetus and then compare that measurement to what an average fetus is. If it matches to a 3 week fetus it means that one is 3 weeks into pregnancy.
