Hi! I am going to for an ultrasound
HI I believe that they can pick up the heart beat between 5 and 7 weeks. I think they can see more if you are having a transvaginal US... I had one of those, it wasnt as bad as it sounds. I had one of those for my first US. I think I was more 8 to 9 weeks when I had it done. I am sure they will see your babies heart beat. Unless you are not as far along as you think you are. Every thing is going to be great.
good luck keep us posted on how it goes.
Cardiac cells are actually some of the first to differentiate (become permanently one designation), so you can see them by u/s very early. You should not have any trouble at your current gestational age, though the embryo itself will look kind of like a dark blob at this point. Have fun and be sure to let us know how it goes!
How did it go, Maura? Mine is on Wednesday...
What is your due date?
Hi Torielle, thanks for asking! It went really well. I went in about a week and a half ago to date the pregnancy and they found a really strong heartbeat! I am now on my 8th week and my duedate is August 29th. I mentioned in another post that I met with our OB last week and she said that a strong heartbeat brings your risk of miscarriage down to 5%...I hadn't known this so was so happy when she told me this. Let me know how tomorrow goes!
I had my first one today and saw the heartbeat.
So when is your due date?
Mine is 18th September.
Has anyone at the 8-week stage found that their stomachs stick out so much they look 6 months pregnant instead of 2? I didnt show at all on my first pregnancy until 5 months, and this time my stomach swelled up the moment i took the pregnancy test!!
My due date is September 20th.
This is my first pregnancy.
I'm not really showing.
