Is anyone having a dating ultrasound - from 8-12 weeks? I had my first apt with the midwife yesterday and we couldn't hear the heartbeat. I should be 8 1/2 weeks, but my uterus is retroverted, so she said it would be unlikely we would hear the heartbeat this soon. Still, it made me a little nervous.
With my DD I only had 1 ultrasound done around 20 weeks and am planning to do the same, but she wrote me a prescription for an early ultrasound if I want to go to get my dates checked. My DD was induced at 42 weeks and 1 day (water broke that morning too) so I want to buy myself some more time if I need it, considering they will induce me again by 42 weeks if it comes to that. My hospital experience was bad and I am planning a home birth this time, so I don't want to have to walk that path again!
I remember after my last birth I thought that if I was pregnant again I would just lie a little about the first day of my last period so my due date was a little later. Oops I forgot about that!
