First OB Appt Tomorrow
6
Wed, 01-28-2009 - 3:22pm

Hi ladies, my name is Lynda, for those of you who might now know me. I'm new here. I got my bfp around Jan 15th or so. I just turned 44 in the beginning of jan. So this pregnancy was conceived when I was 43 - LOL

I have my first OB appointment tomorrow. I am very nervous. I was pregnant last august and the baby died at 6 weeks. I lost the baby at 8 weeks. I know my Dr. is going to do a transvaginal u/s tomorrow to try to find a h/b. I"m only 6 weeks today. When can you see a h/b on a transvaginal u/s? how early? i don't want to relive the dr. saying "oh no, I can't seem to find a h/b"

thanks for your help.

Lynda

Good luck tomorrow Lynda! It is possible to not see a heart beat at 6 weeks 1 day and still have everything be healthy and normal. Don't distress too much if you don't see one tomorrow. Good luck!

Good Luck tomorrow!! And as PP stated 6 wees might be early for a solid HB so dont worry to much until 7-8weeks when you should have a strong detectable HB. Fingers crossed for a good news OB visit!!

thanks for responding ladies.

i went to my appt. and my ob said she thought it might be too early to see the h/b at 6 weeks. she didn't want me to freak out for the next two weeks if i didn't see a h/b, so she ordered another u/s in 2 weeks. i'm so glad i didn't have to freak out if she didn't find one. yay!!! thanks again for your responses!!
