Heartbeat was 132 bpm and it looks like the due date is Feb 7th. Woo hoo!!! I think I'm having a baby!!!
Congratulations! That is so awesome! I can't wait for ours...I still have a few weeks to wait!

I was SO relieved, I had bloodwork taken today and I have another appt in 3 weeks.
That's terrific, Michelle! I'm really happy for you! You must be so relieved! I'll be 7wks1d when I go for mine too, though it's not until July 9th :-)

Based on the u/s it would be 2/6 but since I'm pyscho about charting I know it's 2/8....my midwife says she goes more by Ovulation than u/s if the mother is charting. So we're keeping feb 8th (which will probably be feb 18th with my luck).

I had an abdominal ultrasound at 6w5d and was able to see the heartbeat, so it doesn't always have to be vaginal (thank goodness!). I am due in late January, but spotted this thread and peeked in because I have already had two ultrasounds during this pregnancy (one at 10w yesterday), after being pretty anti-ultrasound for quite a few years!

Congrats on the great ultrasound Michelle, out due dates are still very close together!

I had my second ultrasound yesterday. Saw the heartbeat and everything. And it turns out that I'm further along than I thought. She put me at 8w1d yesterday, moving my due date up by 4 days.
We also found out why I've been having cramps. My left ovary is HUGE! It's almost bigger than the amniotic sac! Guess we know which ovary was responsible for this pregnancy. Other than that it was a very good appointment.

I cannot wait! I think I live appointment to appointment during pregnancy. It's like all my brain can think about

great u/s pic michelle

i also had an abdominal u/s early on, thought i was 7 weeks but ended up measuring in the 6th week with my dd in 2007, saw baby and heartbeat just fine.

So much exciting news on this board...yay!

I had my u/s on Monday...two actually. The first my MD said was for "fun" where we saw the little flicker of a HB (131!) and the second to determine EDD since I have a wacky cycle and I do not remember the first day of last AF.

I am earlier than I thought by a week! I have no idea how that is even possible but considering the fact that i wasn't sure that I would be able to get pregnant again without significant assistance I suppose anything goes.

I have been really anxious about this pregnancy and although I was stoked to see the HB I am surprisingly un-relieved. I have no idea why I am so paranoid. I guess since it was a surprise it will take longer for me to come around to the idea that I could be pregnant and have a healthy pregnancy at that. I go back in in 4 weeks so I will hold off on telling everyone until then, I think.

Keep the good news coming all.

burg - What was the bpm? Did you get a revised due date?
They did not let me know the bpm or mention the due date/revised due date, I do have another appointment on the 7th and I hope I get more info!

finnegansmom, understars, & portlandmama- yay for strong healthy heartbeats!

I go on the 11th. I wonder what we will find out, I am still nursing DS2 and have only had 2 cycles with no regular pattern. I will be counting the days.

early ultrasound

I had my first ultrasound last Wednesday 6/23. I was 7 weeks 6 days calendar-wise, but the little "bean" measured 8 weeks 3 days. The strong heartbeat was 170. My due date for now is February 3, 2011, but I wondering if that is off because I have longer cycles (avg. 33 days). Anyhow, we are super excited! We had a loss in 1996, a healthy boy in 2003, and two more miscarriages in 2008 and 2009. My midwife put me on progesterone suppositories. I have been very nauseous and very tired, but in a happy way...

My OB doesn't do u/s until 18 weeks! I'm so jealous that you all get to see your little hbs so early!

My first appt is July 1, but all I'll do is POAS and find out how much I way. Pretty much could do that at home. So I'll have to wait until my 11 wk appt to hear the hb with the doppler. We'll probably wait to tell everyone until after that.

In the meantime, I'm living vicariously - keep posting!

Hmmm maybe you could tell your OB that you're really unsure of your dates...so he/she will do a dating u/s ??

Totally thought of that. But I'm "padding" my edd to give myself a few extra days from the dreaded induction talk that gave me so much stress last time. If I do a dating u/s, it could totally backfire and actually cost me days. I figure by 18 weeks growth fluctuates enough that she'll stick with "my" due date.

Does that make any sense? I swear I overthink things sometimes.

Most women here don't have an U/S until week 18, it's the routine U/S at the hospital then.

Just if there are complications/risks/IVF or other etc. that you get an earlier one. (Unless you go private and pay for it yourself of course, but not many do.)

I just talked to my doc in the hospital, and he wants me in on thursday, for another U/S! Due to a med I'm starting in a few weeks. He wanted to check me out before the holiday.

Hey ladies, I have a question.
My first OB visit & trans-vag ultrasound will be Wednesday. I'll be 6w1d according to LMP. No clue when I O'd or cycle length because I've had a Mirena IUD in place up until last week (long story).

My question is, Do you think it'll be too early to see a HB? I'm trying to go in with low expectations for the ultrasound, so I don't freak out if there isn't much to see.
