6 weeks preg, no heartbeat yet, is it OK
I had evacuation at 10 weeks earlier this yr, due to no heartbeat &  slight bleeding that started. I am pregnant again, 6 weeks (in real terms only 4 weeks) &  went early (too?) to gynae &  no heartbeat yet, but gunae is satisfied for this stage. She also reported slight bleeding, but this is apparently normal. She also prescribed hormone pills to stop miscarriage &  something like disprin for blood thinning. I am suppose to vist in 2 weeks time again, but considering to only go at 12 weeks as I want to make sure by then I will hear heartbeat. Should I be worried, is everything OK?

If the sca size is normal and the HCG levels are increasing, it should be fine. I would suggest that you go back in 2 weeks though. By 8 weeks the heartbeat should be visible.
