Eeeeekkk!! Good luck chicky mumma! I have my fingers crossed for a lovely strong heartbeat from your little bean original.gif

My first scan is booked for next friday the 21st. I should be 6w 1d by then so I'm hoping for a nice strong heartbeat too. We've been waiting on the scan to tell close family so fingers crossed!!

Just out of interest, does anyone know when you are most likely to see a good heartbeat? some sites say 5 weeks, some say 6 and others say 7 and onwards!

17th for me ill be 7 weeks.

I was under the impression that you can't see a HB to at least 6 weeks even then that can be too early. So those that are having early scans keep that in mind.

17th for me too!! I'm going to be 7 weeks as well - Dr thinks almost 8 but I think her dates are a bit out... So excited - depending on results we might start telling family... Its so hard keeping such huge news a secret!!...

Sorry, don't belong here but please do not be too hopeful that there will be  HB at 5 weeks and 3 days.
It is very early to be able to see one and I would hate for you to come away feeling worried.
Good luck

Have fun seeing your baby for the first time tomorrow! My first scan will be this Friday at 6 weeks 2 days. Hubby has taken the day off and we're going to make a date of it. Can't wait!

Good luck everyone my scan is next Weds I can't wait! I'll be six weeks four days

I had a date scan this week and found out we were 5 weeks 4 days - no heartbeat yet but a promising looking pregnancy sac and yolk.  

This is my first pg so I don't really know what to expect but we've been assured that this is completely normal and that all is looking good.

Our next scan won't be until early January, when we should be close to 10 weeks.

You won't see a HB before 6 weeks, that's one of the reason's why IVF do scans at 6 weeks (4 weeks post ET).

Wow ladies so many have early scans. My is not till 4 Jan, it is so hard to wait that long. Good luck to scans coming up....

I'm now in the same boat as you! Nothing much to show from the early scan and now 4 weeks to wait until the next scan on 8th Jan.  I agree - just as well it's such a busy time of year, I'm hoping the time will fly!!

Great advice STBG, that is why I am waiting until next Tuesday when I will be approx 8 w 1 day.

My dr doesn't usually send women before 7 weeks, and recommends 8 weeks if you wan to see something. I went at 7+5 with last baby and saw a jellybean with tiny arms and legs waving about. Was glad I waited original.gif

We have TWINS, identical twins. Measure small for my dates by a 4 days but that is no big deal really. Can't see heartbeats yet but have another scan in 3 weeks. I was insanely shocked and now just trying to wrap my head around how my body and life is going to change with this pregnancy and life after they are born. I will from a mum of 2 to 4 lol. My doctor has told be not to get excited yet about twins with my history with having a miscarriage in October at 7-8 weeks so I am not past that milestone yet. Also an interesting fact she told me is that a high percentage (I can't remember what she said now) start of as twins and the stronger one continues to grown and the other doesn't resulting in a single child pregnancy. As a lot of people dont actually have scans this early it is not detected so people just dont know they started off with 2 people growing in there.

Explains why at 5 weeks 5 days I am showing, I litterally have a bump, I only look bloated really but already noticing a lot of change in my body. My breasts have grown, lower back pain and my feet keep swelling ( I am guessing due to the heat and amount of time I spend on my feet).

Telling DH, I got my 2.5 and 1.5 year old sons to carry a photoframe out to the car when he got home from work with the scan photo in it. He looked at me and looked back at the photo and siad "does this mean your pregnant again" lol. they grabbed 4 beers out the carton and put them in the fridge. Handy tip for women that have hubbies that drink, do not have them in the fridge, it is way too handy and they get carried away very easily, DH puts 1 or 2 in the fridge each night when he gets home from work and thats were he stops.

Then I said "count them" lol you should have seen his face, total shock. He counted two in one sac and was in total shock.

It took about an hour and 3 beers before he clicked back into the real world and started remodelling the house. "We are putting the boys in this room, theirs is bigger for the twins" lol crazy man, I knew he would get over excited. I dont want to let him down this time, it was a very hard fall onto concrete when we lost the last one, he was shattered.

So now on his xmas break he intends on painting the "boys" room and painting the babies room. I tell you he is more excited than I am.

I made two baby purchases and 2 mummy purchases yesterday. A maternity top and leggings that I though were really cute and must haves as I lived in leggings with our sons pregnancies. $16.00 for both on sale. And a strider bassinette for $20 secondhand but in perfect condition and a bounce and play centre thingy for $20. thats it for week 5 lol, I am not allowed to spend anymore till week 8-9, our next scan.

Hope you are all going well and not feeling this heat wave.

Can anyone help me??  sad.gif

I'm 5 w 4 d according to my calculations but I feel I could be out by 4 days either way.  This is my first pregnancy.  I saw my GP today who has referred me to another doctor but she didn't say anything about scans sad.gif I'm so worried because aside from needing to pee what feels like every 10 Mins I don't really have any symptoms. What do I do to have a scan because I won't see my new doctor untll 8weeks and I really want to have a scan booked around then.
