Once you hit the 8th week of pregnancy, six weeks from ovulation, the ultrasound photos that you get have a bit more detail to them. In addition to the baby's heartbeat, you may also see arm and leg buds. It is important to note that not everyone will have an early ultrasound, mainly because their pregnancy is going well and there are no symptoms that would indicate otherwise. Some of these ultrasound photos also show the yolk sac very clearly. Here are some of those ultrasound photos.

You can see the yolk sac at the baby's feet in this 8 week ultrasound photo. It's right above the baby's head like a circle.

I love the heart icon here and the quick description of what you're looking at in the ultrasound. It's easy to forget that not everyone can tell the head from toes at this point.

Notice how the baby's head is still much bigger of a proportion than the rest of the body at 8 weeks pregnant?

This 3D ultrasound of triplets is pretty amazing even at this early point in pregnancy. There is a lot going on at 8 weeks.

8 Week Arm Buds

At 8 weeks you can make out the arm buds at the top and bottom of the baby in the center of the circle.

8 Weeks Gestation Tail Visible

This baby has a tail! It's to the left of the screen, and is just at the curve of the body at 8 weeks. Don't worry, that won't stay.

Yolk Sac at 8 Weeks

You can see the yolk sac clearly and the baby seems to have so much space at 8 weeks gestation.

Sometimes your ultrasound equipment isn't great or your baby isn't cooperating and the photos aren't as clear.
