    My doctor didn't do any ultrasounds until I was close to 8 weeks along. I don't know what my betas were. I think the reason doctors do that is because there isn't much to see early on. The heart doesn't start beating until after 6 weeks.

    50,000 usually is about 7 or 8 weeks which is normal Congrats ! The waiting is THE HARDEST

    My dr wants to wait until 7-9 wks so I would say this is normal. I think most are that way. before then there is not much to see. I was suppose to be 11 wks pregnant going by my LMP but was only 6 wks. baby was just a blob lol. did get to see a heart beat though. this time around I was 9 wks and the difference was amazing. baby was kicking and moving around. sucking on its hand. i was glad i got to wait

    Idk what my beta was I never had it tested but from what it sounds like its around 7-8 weeks which is normal. There isn't much to see in the beginning. Waiting until 8 weeks you are sure to see and hear much more!

    When I was pg with DS I had one u/s at 8weeks and another at 20weeks, I think that is the norm. I know a lot of women who work with an RE get earlier and more frequent ultrasounds so it can feel like forever to get your first!
