First Ultrasound

Nov 20, 2008 - 8 comments

So, I went yesterday and saw my little peanut, and when I say peanut, that is how big he/she really am officially 7 weeks and 5 days as of today..the baby's heartbeat is 150 beats per min. And with all the reading I am doing, that means a girl...I have a girl and really wanted a boy, But as long as he/she is healthy, I don't care what it is....

I couldn't hear the heartbeat as its too faint to hear, but I did see it beating and its so cool...

Hope all are well..

Isnt that exciting!!!!  I remember going to my daughters appointments and hearing the babies heartbeat was always the greatest sound anyone could hear.  His heartbeat was usually 152!!!!   I am so happy for you!!     sara

actually that sounds more like a boys HB =)   my boys HB's were always btwn 120 and 150 every u/s i went to, and all my pregnant girlfriends that had baby girls said their babies HBws were in the 170s!  so dont throw in the towel just yet on the idea of a boy LOL. Anyhow I know you will be happy with either and just want healthy! take care and keep us posted on your pregnancy! Im so happy for you!

My girls heartbeats were always higher too.  They usually ran in the 160 plus range.  Either way if it is another me the boys will come later!!!!!!

Just wanted to let you know that when I was pregnant with my son his H/B was always 155 or less so you may still get your little boy. My daughters H/B was always in the 170's...I remember that so vividly because everytime I heard it I would ask the Dr if everything was I was afraid it was beating to fast. Keep all of us posted. I hope your morning sickness is better.

Congrats on hearing the heartbeat.  The old saying is anything over 140 means Girl and under 140 means boy.  But, I think it's not until 13-14 weeks, maybe a little later, until the heartbeat regulates.  Mine was 167bpm the first time I heard it at 10w4d and now at 13 weeks it's around 153bpm.

Thanks sooo much for responding. I can honestly say that I do want a healthy baby, boy or girl, and will be thrilled. But, I have a great little girl, whom is my best friend in the world, she is all I have and I have always wanted a boy. I don't know if I will ever have kids again, so I would love for this one to be a boy. But, healthy is all I can pray for. I acutally forget what my daughter was. I think she was around 160-170 range. It was 9 years ago, so I forget easily.

I keep hearing that high means girl and 150 is high. So we'll see. Who knows. I still have a long wait to find out, but I am going to find out. I did with my daughter. I knew I was having a girl then, and while this time does feel like a boy, I think with all the boy talk, I am destined for a life with Daughters

Only god will know what to bless me with, that is what I believe...

Ok, thanks for all the guys are great..
