I think (I don't know for sure though!) that you could have an ultrasound about 5.5 weeks and you should be able to see the sac somewhere. I had an ultrasound at 5w6d for suspected ectopic and you could see the sac, baby and a very tiny heartbeat. I would assume even a couple of days earlier they would be able to see that the sac is correctly positioned.
Good luck with it!

After my ectopic I was feeling very much the same way. I had my BHCG bloods done every couple of days (3 collections) and saw the levels rising. I also had a scan done at 6 weeks to confirm that baby was in the uterus and was also away from the old ceaser scar.
As you can see all has gone well and we are waiting for our precious baby to join us soon.
Hoping all goes well for you.

I was super scared and nervous too during my 1st trimester, and was getting my blood done every week till about week 8.
I would suggest doing HCG blood tests and an early scan as well.
Hope this pregnancy goes well for you,

Thanks ladies.... So nervous this pregnancy is not going to end well. Staying positive! Will call ob today to see when he wants to see me.:-) too scared to join a due in group....

No ectopic, but 3 miscarriages before this pregnancy, so I understand the fear very well.
I really hope all goes well for you this time

So far still all good...I thought for sure i was going to get AF yesterday morning even though i got my BFP. I am worried the tests arnt getting darker they are staying the same.I am hoping that the fact i tested 2 days before AF is due at night time and it came up pos is a good thing???? I would normally do FMU but for some reason i just though i would test.
I am due for AF today! Only 4 weeks.....Its going to be a longgggggg pregnancy lol.I will be happy for 5-6 weeks so i can see bub is ok then i will be able to enjoy my LAST pregnancy.
thanks again for the replies....

fingers crossed for you!
I would suggest going to your DR and get the blood test done and then see if you can do it every week or so, to see if HCG is going up.
