    So i have a private early scan on saturday morning, cannot wait (bit nervous) just wondering how much i might actually see. I ovulated 10th may so by that i would be 5 weeks 1 day on saturday, but of course doctors date from LMP puts me at 7 weeks. So unsure wether i'll actually be able to see a heartbeat or not, its all very confusing.
    Anyone had one and can tell me please?

    I had one on Monday when i was 7+5 and saw a little jelly bean type thing and a nice strong heartbeat. Think heart beat starts around week 6 so hopefully you'll hear that, but don't panic if you don't as it might still be too early. They should be able to tell you how many there are, and if it is in the right place xxx

    Just find a local private scan place (i used google and found one just up the road from me) and either call them up to book or mine i booked online. They vary in price but you are looking at around £80-£100.
