As i've said before, i'm new to the pregnancy business, and im only about 6 or 7 weeks. So, how many weeks/months are you before you can see the baby on a sonogram?? I have a doctor appt. a week from monday, and i was wondering if i'd be able to see the baby.

I saw my little one this time around when I found I was expecting at almost 9 weeks and could see baby and the heart beating already. With my first two at 5-6 weeks I saw my little beans on the ultrasound.

as early as 5-6 weeks they can see at least a sac, sometimes a fetal pole and around 6-7 they can see a heartbeat by the time you go in if they do an ultrasound they should be able to see something, if you know for sure your dates are correct.

you can see the baby clearly at 5-6 weeks. before that, though, you can see the yolk sack. at 7 weeks, you will defintely be able to see the baby. it will look like a peanut :) the head is almost the same size as the body right now. you can go to, click on the pregnancy link, then go to the week-by-week guide to fetal development. it is very accurate and really cool to read about what is happening with your baby each week :) congrats mama!
