Have my first scan tomorrow, a dating scan and very nervous. Last time I had an US I was alone and getting confirmation of a mc.

Fingers crossed this time is different. Hubs will be there and at 7 weeks we are expecting to see a little HB.

When is your next scan or test? Keep us posted on the results :)

MrsJ I have a referral for my 8 week scan. I'm debating if I should book in for 7w2d or 7w6d. I'd like to go with the first date as I don't feel pregnant or have any symptoms except for boobies so I was hoping to see bub and they everything is going on sooner rather than later. I also plan on telling work at 7w3d so it'll be nice to know.

Is your scan the 8week one? I hope it all goes well :) and that you will see that little heart beat!

WFB its a dating scan and Dr wanted me to wait until week 7 so be more certain of seeing something. Rather than go too early and stress me out. I am fairly certain of dates though so I think if I can drink all the water we should be ok. I think you should be ok at 7+2 or 7+6 many people I know see a hb at 6 weeks. I'll let you know how I go, it may help you decide.

Trace - good luck with your bloods, hope all goes to plan.

I'm waiting to get the results of my blood test and then if they're good, I'll get the referral for my dating scan :)

MrsJ - excited to hear about your results for tomorrow! It will definitely be helpful having DH there for support.

I'm booked in for a dating scan on July 28, when I expect to be 8 weeks. The first scan is always a bit nerve wracking for me, in 2011 it was at my dating scan at 9 weeks when it was discovered that I had had a mmc. I then went on to have a D&C a week later.

I have my scan booked in on the 28th of july too 123Babies4Me. I too should hopefully be 8weeks :)

Dating scan on Saturday for me. I'm expecting to be 6+3 but I have shortish cycles so possibly further along by a few days.

Dating scan for me 21 July followed by afternoon GP appointment where I think I'll get the 10-12 week referrals for bloods and u/s.

Third bloods for me tomorrow and fourth bloods on Monday followed by an appt with the dr Tuesday.

I did have my dating scan booked in for Thursday, but seeing as my Drs think something isn't quite right, I will be canceling that appointment.

Good luck to everyone else with scans and tests coming up.

So after desperately trying to keep down all the water I spewed it up 15 mins before scan. Crying, spewing and saying to hubs, "I'm not going to be able to see our baby!" I'm sure I was totally attractive at that moment!! Lol.

Anyhow, got great pic of bub, measuring 7+2 so I was only one day off. Strong heartbeat too. Due March 1st (picked the right DIG lol). Hoping bubs comes early or late, I am maid of honour March 5th.

That's fantastic news! Also a little messy hehe. I'm sure they have had it happen before.
Here is hope that bubs plays nicely and will give you a great 7months and comes in feb!

Glad it went well @MrsJ :)

I have mine on Tuesday next week after having the the same situation in January. Mmc @ 6w 4d, no heartbeat.

MrsJ, thats great news! Congrats!!

Is the wedding close to home? If you have to travel much distance, I would be seriously considering whether being maid of honour was still possible...

Blended - here's hoping everything goes well for you. I think aside from morning sickness my upset tummy was nerves too. Plus we spent all morning moving boxes in the snow which probably didn't help.

123 - the lovely bride knows my dates and understands, I warned her when she asked me that I may not make it. She's decided to keep me around anyway, very kind of her. Ceremony is up the road from tiny hospital but they don't do births. Birthing hospital is 45 mins from ceremony but 1 1/2 hrs from reception venue. I think I can decide closer to the time depending on how I feel.

Hope everyone's feeling alright and bubs is giving you a break from any sickness. I cannot seem to kick mine.

#16 123Babies4Me

MrsJ - sounds like a good plan :-) You're right, you will probably know closer to the date whether it will work or not. It sounds like your birthing hospital is a doable distance away in all events :-) I've been asked to MC at a good friends wedding when I think I'll be about 37 weeks, about 6 hours from home. However it is a major city so if worse comes to worst, I know I'll be able to go to hospital there. But the earliest any of my kids has come has been 39 weeks (another at 41, another at 40) so I think labour at 37 weeks is unlikely.

I have an appt with my Obs who will also do a scan on the 28th @ 2pm :)

Very excited - will be 7+3 so hoping there will be a HB and little bean by then :)

The 28th is a popular day by the looks of it!

#19 heart-beat

Got my booking-in confirmation letter from the hospital antenatal clinic, seems so far away on 18/9. Dating scan tomorrow, for some reason I'm feeling nervous. Plan on telling parents that afternoon as well. Thinking about skipping the NT scan due to the high rate if false positives.

Heart beat for what it's worth, I got a higher than expected risk factor or for DS with my  first. We elected to have an amniocentesis at 15 weeks purely so we knew what we we're up against and results came back all clear - even if they hadn't id still a fan of the path we took, but I guess I'm the type who doesn't cope well with the unknown. Either way I wanted to know though and in our case knowing that everything was fine was such a relief.

#21 OrganisedChaos

Posted 17 July 2015 - 09:54 AM

Yay, MrsJ, glad to hear your u/s went well, minus the water 'evacuation' :)

Runner5, I'm like you, I'd like to know and will be doing whatever tests we have to.

#22 Runner5

Posted 17 July 2015 - 09:57 AM

Dating scan done :) I was within one date of my estimated due date! 7+1 today :)

#23 OrganisedChaos

Posted 17 July 2015 - 10:03 AM

Another yay, dating scans all round here!  How was the heartbeat, Runner5?
