1st ultrasound went well!

post #1 of 9
Thread Starter 

I had an early ultrasound today. I previously had a molar pregnancy, which puts me at increased risk for another, so this was to rule that out.

 

Baby measured 6w1d (by my calculations it should be 6w2 or 3d, but I'm not going to worry). Heartbeat was pretty clear--124 bpm! EDD is Jan. 22.

 

I know we're not out of the woods yet, but this was reassuring.

 

I don't know if it's because I have a 2 year old and am distracted/exhausted or what, but I am so much calmer with this pregnancy. It's slowly starting to feel more real!

Hooray!  I'm happy to hear it.

We have the same due date :) So glad everything is a-okay!

Congrats!!! 

 

Did they do it vaginal or abdominal? I'll be 6w3d when they do mine next Tues and it will be abdominal.

Thanks, everyone! Serenyd, it was vaginal. I didn't know they did abdominal ones this early--lucky you!

Thanks, I am just nervous they won't be able to see anything.

Yeah, I guess I would be, too, but maybe they have really good equipment or something? I would hope they wouldn't do abdominal unless they were confident it would be sufficient. Good luck! Keep us posted!

Blanca78, I'm so glad you were able to get that reassurance! I'm looking forward to it for myself, but mine won't be until between 8 and 9 weeks, so I've still got a little while to wait.

Serenyd, in my experience with a past pg, when the abdominal u/s wasn't sufficient to see what they needed to, they just got out the vaginal wand and tried with that. It was definitely a little nerve wracking (and they had me empty my bladder in between), but not too horrible.

That is great news :)
