Ultrasound

So, I had my first ultrasound today and things are looking good! They couldn't give me exact numbers, but said the baby was measuring very close to what I think my dates are (about 8 weeks) and the heart rate is about 150! Apparently I'll find out the exact numbers in about a week.

Not sure when I'll have another u/s...the baby looked very blob-like (not baby like), so it would be nice to have another one at about 12 weeks to get a better picture of them :) I have an appointment with my doctor on Thursday, so I will ask about it then.

Glad to hear everything looks good with your little bean:).


If you decide to have the Integrated Prental Screening - which seems to be pretty standard in Ontario, unless you choose to decline it - then your next ultrasound will

Congratulations Alyssa!! That is wonderful news!! When I had my first U/S at 9 weeks, the tech described the view of the baby as the "gummy bear view", LOL!


BTW, I find it fascinating how different you look in each of your siggies! Do you change your hair often? I can't put my finger on it but somehow you look different to me every time. :-P


Sending you lots and lots of SBVs!!!

Thanks ladies! It was definitely re-assuring, and DH is really excited now. Way more than me, but that's probably because he's not feeling ill! LOL! Though he did say that the u/s made him feel really connected to the baby for the first time, so that was really sweet to hear.

Christine - hmm...I guess my hair is different in my pictures. For my wedding, I had grown it out and it was my natural color. After the wedding I cut my hair much shorter and have dyed it much darker. Now I'm letting the color grow out, but am keeping it shorter. So you're probably seeing all the stages in between :)

Alyssa, I'm so glad to hear this, what wonderful news!! Are you going to opt for the NT scan? If so, then you'll get another u/s between 12 and 14 weeks... I did it just to get the extra u/s!! :)

Yeah! How wonderful...It's amazing how that little blob/bean turns into a baby over the next 20+ weeks! I am so glad it went well and that you are measuring right on.

I am so pleased for you, Alyssa! Sounds like everything is going great!
Plus, I second what Ella said, if you opt for the NT screening you will get another ultrasound at about 12 weeks. It is amazing to see how your little blob will have turned into a proper baby by then!
