5 week scan - what to expect?

Hi I have my first scan on Friday which I work out to be 5 weeks pregnant. Just wondering what I can expect from it? Will I be able to see anything other than a black dot? Will I be able to hear a heartbeat? Will they give me a due date? Any advice on what to expect would be appreciated as would like to go with my expectations set and not be disappointed if there's no heartbeat yet etc!

They usually say about 6 weeks to see the heartbeat but they might be able to check if there’s a sac and fetal pole x


In my case, i only saw small black dot and for heartbeat we can see flipping image 🙂

For due date, we can know after second scan xx


My 5 weeks scan l seen the sac but not much else. I’m going next week for a 7 week scan so hope to see more then.
