    7 weeks is recommended for early scans as there is a better chance of seeing a heartbeat. Having a scan earlier and not seeing a heartbeat can cause unnecessary worry when it's just too early rather than anything being wrong x

    I had an ep scan last week & the heartbeat was as clear as anything. They said I was 7+2 but my dates could change when I go for my dating scan ?? Does this look as early as that!

    No idea, just need to wait until your dating scan to get your due date.
    Does 7+2 not match with your last period date?

    I saw and heard a really clear heartbeat at my early scan. I dated myself 6 +1 but the nurse dated 5 +4 but said it was difficult at that size to get a clear measurement xx

    I saw HB at approx 6 weeks- as others have said it's really hard for them to measure accurately at that size x
