Reno! Do I see little teeny tiny LEGS? That is SO cute!
I see you, baby! ~ Ultrasound Thread! ~ - Page 3
I got an unexpected ultrasound at my 10 week appointment today. I have a tilted uterus so the midwife couldn't find the heartbeat via doppler (after pushing hard on my uterus forever lol). So she wheeled in the u/s machine. :-) Baby was sleeping and heart was beating strongly in the 170s. Seems more real now!
Thanks, guys! KateyW, I only expected a 20 week ultrasound too so it was a very pleasant surprise to get a glimpse of the babe. The luck of a tilted uterus. :-) Amazing how developed they already are at 10 weeks! We could clearly see the legs/feet and arms/hands. Makes it feel so much more real now.
it's so amazing to see everyone's pictures! the babies look like wee elves. we just had our first ultrasound this afternoon--the doctor wanted to check for gestation, since i had irregular periods this summer due to stress (finished my phd, got married, moved to another state, etc). ours is due may 5, which is what i thought. so excited!
yeah... i don't know what is normal? it is the machine they had--i have some of the fuzzy-looking ones, too; they printed out like 8 pictures. it was so great to see! my husband got there in the last 5 minutes (he had to come straight from class, i couldn't get them to reschedule on a better day for him), so he got to see the wee baby & see/hear it's heart beating, too! :)
I'm another who isn't getting one until about 20 weeks, so will be living vicariously through you. I'm not due until about the 26th of May, which is hilarious, because it was my older dd's due date. Anyway, it means lots of your babies are bigger than mine, but it's nice to see what will be in a few weeks. :)
Is it standard for docs to do dating ultrasounds nowadays? With dd1 I don't think that was standard, but now it seems like everyone is getting them. She's only 7, so it wasn't like the dark ages or anything, lol. For dd1, they did one at 14 weeks and that was the only one they did in office, although in retrospect that's odd timing, since the anatomy scan can't tell you what you really need to know until 17-20 weeks and 14 weeks is a bit late for accurate dating. I never really thought about that stuff before now. Hmm.
