Awesome!!!  Congrats!

 

I had my u/s 2 weeks ago, and am positively itching to get a peek/hear or SOMETHING of this little person to know all's still well in there (even though I have no reason to doubt it).

Crazy to think that's what they look like, so tiny and hidden away in there!  Thanks for sharing - if we do one I'll definitely share:-)  I found a website with 3-D photos of babies at each week, which is fun to show the kids with each new week - crazy what technology can do these days!

Here's our pumpkin!  This was taken 2 weeks ago, at 8 weeks 4 days.  :)  :)  :)  So happy to see a little head, and arms and legs!  And, of course, that precious little heart swishing away.  Dd thinks it looks like a gummy bear.

I'm calling my little one "The Gummy Bear" but only based on Internet photos of a 7 weeker. I think your looks way cuter than a gummy bear. Congratulations!

  • Our little peanut!  A week ago measured at 8weeks 3days.  Maybe one of you can answer me this, does that mean the fetus is 8weeks 3days and my pregnancy is more like 10 weeks, or is that the estimated length of my pregnancy?  This is my first time, i'm still learning!

Tarabelle, it means that they are estimating the pregnancy to be 8 weeks 3 days (so conception would have been approximately 6.5 weeks before the ultrasound).

Just had my first US yesterday. Everything looks great, heartbeat was around 160bpm..... does anyone have any exp with how fast/slow for a potential girl/boy? We're not finding out the sex of the baby but any hints I may get would be fun.

The pics looked so much nicer on the screen at the ultrasound, they were so blurry when they printed!

 

It was all so exciting, I hadn't even heard the heartbeat at my first MW appt a few weeks ago so I was happy to see everything growing and thriving as it should joy.gif

We had our second ultrasound yesterday! The baby measured perfectly at 9 weeks with a heartbeat of 171. We were really excited to see the baby wave it's little arm at us.

First of all, it is so cool to see these photos.  I am admiring my little one vicariously through your pics!  As for heart rate, 160s is normal for either gender this early in pregnancy.  I think the old wives' tale says faster heartbeat = girl, but I'm not certain and I've never heard anyone confirm a hunch based on that alone.  I do remember that my DS2 stayed consistently at 145 throughout preg...

These pictures are so cute...my early one I didn't get a photo, I wish I had thought to ask.

16

So if slower heartbeat is a boy and faster is a girl, I must be having a hermaphrodite LOL One day it's 150, another it's 170+

the pictures are neat. Makes it easier to imagine my little one. I also found the site with the 3-D pictures. I will post mine when I get them, but it won't be until 20 weeks.

The wives tale is fast=girl slow=boy, but it doesn't really mean anything. From what I remember during my first, the heart rate can fluctuate depending on if the baby is being active or not. So a higher heart rate may just mean that the baby is moving around slot and vice versa.

It really is an old wives tale. They told my dad I was going to be a boy based on heartrate. Considering I'm gestating my second, I think they were just a little bit wrong.

Hey ladies!

 

Anyone familiar with the genital tubercle theory? Anyone have any "nub" pics to share? I'm 12 weeks and still trying to figure out if my baby's nub is male or female in its direction!
