    Checked at 6 weeks today

    Just check in sanatorium , with the varginal scan, but can see the baby, as a very small blob. The process was fine for me, it didnt hurt. But can not deterimine it's got a heart heart or not. I was asked to go back in two weeks time. Although my cycle is 35, is it strange not to get a heart beat at 6.5 weeks, scared that it may not be growing.. But the doctor Winnie LAU seems to explain in details when I asked her questions.

    The 'What to Expect When You're Expecting' book is pretty comprehensive and widely read. I've seen it in HK:

    http://www.amazon.com/What-Expect-Yo.../dp/0761148574

    There are also a number of good web sites that have valuable and trustworthy information:

    http://www.webmd.com/baby/default.htm

    http://www.mayoclinic.com/health/pre...y-week/MY00331

    http://www.babycenter.com/

    http://www.whattoexpect.com/what-to-...ding-page.aspx

    There are also many others. Also, write down any questions you have between doctor visits for your OB and bring the list with you to each appointment so you remember to ask.

    I didn't see a heartbeat until 7 weeks I think and that was with an abdominal scan. I also used the mayoclinic book on pregnancy and found it useful in addition to what to expect when you're expecting. Try also Dymocks for English books.

    It also depends on the u/s machine. My twins were "discovered" at 6w4d and both had a heart beat at that point which was picked up by the machine (117 and 131 bpm).

    sorry when i was referring to "hearing" the heartbeat, i was thinking of the doppler machine, not an ultrasound
