First U/S & Got AMAZING pics!!!

I had my first u/s last week and had a great look at the baby. Tried an abdominal scan first and after confirming a singleton pregnancy, they moved on to a vaginal scan.

I wish they would have started with that because we got such good pictures. We got to see the baby wiggle once. It brought tears to our eyes. We barely heard the heartbeat though. It was for like 5 seconds. I could have listened to it for hours. The hb was at 172 which they said was average.

I don't know when I'll have another ultrasound, it'll probably be at 16-20 weeks and hopefully we can see the gender then. I want to see the baby every week though to see how it's growing. Oh well I have a wonderful picture to look at.

I'm uploading it to share. You can even see the eyes and nose! I love seeing the tiny hands and legs. Aww love.

That IS a great shot! My doc will only do a vaginal u/s during my 1st appointment. Like you, we have to wait until 18-20 weeks for the next one. Last time, I paid $60 to go see gender at 15 weeks because the 3 week wait was KILLING me. Not sure yet if I will this time. I may have better patience or I may not. ;)

I hope we don't have to wait too long before we know the gender! I'm dying now to know. Next appt I'll be 13wks, so then 4 wks after that Idk if they will do the scan or wait until the next appt at 21 weeks. Our anniversary I'll be 20w5d, so I'm hoping that we know before that or even better find out that day!!
