First Heartbeat

May 14, 2011 - 21 comments


Ok So after many many negotiations with my MH friends and all my battles with the - - thuts I had..I decided — while on my way to visit my mother — to stop at the hospital and book this sono get it over with..
So I arrived at the desk and asked the receptionist if she could gimme a print of the Dr's referral but then she replied asking if I wanted to c her since she's free..this way I wont have to go thru insurance hassle..I said ya y not?
went in Dr's clinic was empty..she greeted me and asked me to lie down for a "quick look" on her u/s before I go to the radiology department for the bigger u/s....well she immediately found the sac and turns out I measured 6 weeks exactly today..that means I'm 3 days behind..
heard that and felt really disappointed.. so reluctantly I asked  "is there a Fetal Pole?" she replied "yes and its pulsating too" I'm like "RU serious!?" she said "wait u'll hear it in a second" I teared up and laughed at the same time..
I bet this Dr isn't gonna let me c her after what she's seen from me today haha..or maybe send me to the psychiatry ward instead hehe..
anyways she turned the mic on and there it is..!!! I cudn't believe my ears !!!
sadly DH wasn't there to hear it since he's still away..but he was SO thrilled and happy to hear about it..
EDD is 7th of Jan instead of the day after DH's birthday and SIL's birthday ..

As for the measurements CRL is 3.3 mm but I can't find the HB on the picture...and can't recall the rate the Dr mentioned lol since I was in La La land
all I have now is a blurry foto cuz I'm using my fone's camera..will post a clearer one soon..

Thank u ALL for ur support and kinds words...nothing is impossible and from NOW ON I'm a strong believer of that..

Good luck to all of u TTCer and mother's 2b..

Just did hpt and got the slightest 2nd line. Could be evap or even leftover trigger, although I don't think it's trigger cos I got a negative two days ago, hehe. I tested last night before bed and got a slight line too! It just doesn't look stronger this morning, so I'm a little bummed. Tomorrow will test again, but I'm getting some cramping :( already so I might be out. Only a few more days and I'll know for sure!

Back to you.... I am OVERJOYED that you saw the BABY'S heartbeat!! How amazing!! I think you need to tell your mum.... You really need the support of your mommy right now... Consider it pls! And get some sleep!! My God, you are gonna make yourself weak and sick! I know I lost sleep last night over your ordeal, lol!

Cher, I really understand ur fears but u saw my journal I was exactly the same and even more! do u feel unusually bloated? I felt FAT starting 2DPO hehe
I'm praying for u and honestly don't wanna get ur hopes up but I'm overly excited for ..I have a feeling this is it! Hope I'm not wrong and try skipping tomorrow without testing..IF possible ...hard for a POAS

I'm really happy but for some reason still don't feel ready to tell any1 yet ..y? no idea lol my mum obviously suspects it but I think I shud wait until the first Tri is over then tell them..

Angelbabies, I hope u get to experience this again and that u never have to go thru any losses anymore..
will b pulling for u and keeping my fingers crossed that this is ur month..!

Liz, Thanks! I hope u get ur CLEAR BFP soon! :)

Congratulations.. that is amazing

I remember being in your boat... My last pregnancy turned out to be a blighted ovum and ididnt have a scan until 12 weeks and I had no idea....  This pregnancy again wasnt getting a scan until at least 12 weeks...

and I was freaking out.. my symptoms where here and then gone then back then gone.. I was so scared... I went to the emegency with back pain one day and because I was pregnant they did an ultrasound with a crappy machine.. I was 12 weeks at the time, and when she went to do it, I started crying because I was soooooooooooooo afraid it would be an empty sac again...  But sure enough, there was a baby..and a flicker!  it was amazing.. I was so happy...

then i got to have my official ultrasound 2 weeks later on the good machine.. only measuring 1 day behind my LMP but exactly on what i thought based on ovulation since i ovulate late...  the baby was doing flips and rolls.. it was so amazing.. I am still nervous because I have a long way to go.. but I remember that first moment of relief when you see the baby

I'm SO happy Ladies Thank u So much for ur great support :)

Shawna, I didn't C this coming! I never expected to hear the heartbeat until I'm like 14 or 16 weeks! it was AMAZING! my heart goes crazy every time I remember the sound of it!
DH is SO excited but he was sad he didn't hear it and wasn't there at that time..but I'm going back in 10 days anyways! :)

Petite Wonder,
12 WEEKS!!! I'd spend them crying or weeping or maybe I'd die b4 getting to my appointment haha..
glad u survived all that time and that things turned out fine at the end..I can't imagine waiting for 12 weeks then getting a "no HB" answer!
The feeling is SO amazing I didn't know how great such a thing could b until I heard it my self! aaaahhhh
can't wait till I C my baby doing flips and rolls like urs! :D
Don't b nervous I think ur critical time is over! its time to enjoy it..just enjoy it! :)

by echoecho9er, May 14, 2011
I'm just so glad you've relaxed into it now and can enjoy it. Next time bring something to record the sound, like your phone or something and you can play it when you're ready to tell your mom, that would be awesome for her to hear it too when you tell her!!!!

I'm so happy for you, and so so so glad you can now give that little one the joy he/she deserves!!  If only that meant all the nausea would go away hey : )   All the very very best girl.


by xx_Louise_xx, May 15, 2011

Thanks ladies, hope u all experience the same thing even better...soon!
I just arrived from the hospital been sick all morning Dr had to put me on IV fluids..I'm feeling much better now but still really tired..
TOO much for the trying to "relax and enjoy the pregnancy"'s all good
hope ur all doing well now!


by wakejl, May 16, 2011
I am so, so happy for you!!! Not the IV fluids part, of course. But the heartbeat, how wonderful is that?!!!
I had to be on IV fluids when I was pregnant with my DD, and I took Zofran for the entire pregnancy. But she turned out healthy and perfect, so I'm sure your little one will be the same.
I'm so excited, this is great news!!

by mjmom69, May 16, 2011
