6 week OB appt/first ultrasound

Jun 24, 2010 - 17 comments

Yesterday, Tues we saw the heartbeat for the first time and got to see our little sweet pea. It was so amazing that something SO tiny can have a heartbeat. It was a great surprise to see the heartbeat too. Our little one is 3.6mm crown to rump and heart rate is 120 beats per minute. We saw the yolk sac as well. I just can't get over how something SO tiny can have a heartbeat. So cool!  

I'll have an ultrasound every single week for the first trimester. The OB said he wanted every week or every other week and I said I would prefer every week and he said that was fine. It will be good peace of mind for me. And very neat to watch our little sweet pea grow every week and etch our sweet pea turn into a baby! :)

after seeing our baby's heartbeat I am so beyond in love with our child. I think it also has been a wonderful bonding experience for my husband and I. It's like we have an even stronger connection that before. And after being best friends and together for nearly ten years now, I never thought the connection could possibly get stronger. I thank G-d every single day for this amazing miracle that we have been given.

Wow that heartbeat sounds great!! It's going to go up before your next appt too. My first one was Baby A HB 122 and Baby B HB 98, the next week it was A HB 145 and B HB 125. It's so amazing! I also am so facinated that something so small can have a heartbeat. The tech said our baby right now is just a bunch of cells but im in love already! Cant wait till we get out of this first trimester so we can relax a bit. I hope your feeling a little better now (since your appt) and are feeling more positive about it. You have no reason not to! Good luck hun and I cant wait to hear about next weeks appt.

Yes it definitely gives me a peace of mind and helps ease the stress. I think once this dang first trimester is over I will be feeling great about it. I have a feeling our first trimester will fly by though because im shocked im already 7 weeks along!! And according to the doc the biggest baby measured 7w4d on Tuesday. So does that mean im already 8 weeks along today?

I would think that by now if a pregnancy test is negative than you aren't pregnant. I'm sorry. You would be nearly two months pregnant by now and a pregnancy test would show that you are pregnant. I would talk to your dr ask for bloodwork to confirm this and then take progesterone for a week then atop and you shoul get your period. I would also ask your dr to try and get to the bottom of why you have irregular periods as it could be a reason of fertility problems and possibly treatable. Good luck

Alicia wow that's amazing!  I don't think you are eight weeks since they count from LMP but I'm not positive. My baby was measuring 1-2 days further than I was too lol. That's so amazing that this first trimester is flying by!  I am so excite that we get to fo through this together. Though you will probably go into labor in Dec or Jan bc w twins they usually come several weeks early. But even so we get to share this experience together. It is so amazing and I'm so thankful!  I can't believe I'm 6.5weeks already!  Time really is flying by isn't it?  Hopefully it continues to fly by and we hit the second trimester SOON :D

Congratulations on hearing your baby's heartbeat!  It must make it so much more real.  You are so lucky your clinic does early (and lots of) ultrasounds.  I'm 5w5d but my clinic makes you wait till you're 7 weeks and if all is well at that one, the next scan isn't until 12 weeks (that's the first one with the doctor).

How are your symptoms so far?

Usually my OB doesn't do ultrasound till seven weeks and then not again till 12 weeks but I'm considered high risk. I had a previous m/c, PCOS and a fracture in my lower spine and pelvis. So they want to keep a close eye on me. I wish it was more positive reasons to see the OB that often but I do feel lucky to get to see my baby very week.

My symptoms include food adversions, morning sickness, fatigue, tender heavy breasts. Oh and constantly thirsty for water/peeing lol. And increased sex drive and occassionally I get dizzy. I've learned to manage the symptoms well especially by eating small meals throughout the day and rest as needed.

How are you doing?

How wonderful to see the heartbeat! My first u/s is Monday and I am praying for the same. I think it will actually put my mind at ease and make me just a little more sane. Maybe...
