Just wondering if any of the early December babies have been for an US yet?

 

Did the person doing to US tell you if they saw the sack/heartbeat/nothing? Or do they give the results to your GP?

 

I'm going for an US next Friday, I'll be 6.5 weeks, it seems a lot of people don't have an US till 11/12weeks, might be too early to see anything, but GP wants me to go to make sure everything's ok as hcg levels have been low.

 

Good luck to any with dating scans coming up :D

I'm going tomorrow, when I will be 7 weeks 1 day (according to FF). I am only having this scan because I am highly paranoid, there is no real medical reason. I will update you on what I see tomorrow (hopefully).

I don't belong here but I had a dating scan at 6wks and 6 days and they couldn't see much - they can pretty much only see your uterus abdominally.

 

Ask them to do transvaginal if you're comfortable with that, (the other bonus is you don't have to have a full bladder for that!) and they see much more.

 

We could see our bub, not great detail but it was there, they also picked up a HB and the sac. They don't like to make the HB audible but you just see it going across the screen - something to do with the amplification of the HB noise scaring young babies?

 

They could also tell me which ovary I ovulated from and which side the baby was attached - which has some interesting gender predictions :)

 

All the best with your scan and congrats on your pregnancy!

I have a dating scan in 5 days. I've had 2 miscarriages in a row so im pretty nervous, and hoping it's all ok.

The sonographer will point out the heartbeat to you, and tell you how fast it's beating. Then they will measure the baby and tell you how far along you are. You still need a follow up with your GP though. Good luck! :)

I'm just shy of 6 weeks and will likely have one early next week. I am having one because my last cycle was a bit weird (normally a 30 day cycle but we know for sure we didn't conceive until CD24 at the earliest) so I'm a bit unsure exactly when I'm due. With our first, I had one at just on 6 weeks and they coudn't see much externally so did an internal one. Could quite obviously see the heartbeat on the screen. We were really surprised because we didn't think we'd see it that early! Don't panic if you don't see anything, it doesn't necesarily mean something is wrong. Good luck!

I had mine this morning (x-posted in the DIG discussion thread). She tried an abdominal scan, but I have a lot of abdomen and my bladder was too full (I couldn't walk properly or do up my jeans, it was so full!) so she just went for the internal scan.

 

WE SAW A HEART BEAT! 111bpm. CRL is 4.9mm. Everything is perfect for 6w1d. Based on LMP I am 7w1d but I have a 33 day cycle and not 100% sure when I actually ovulated last month, so I'm not stressing about it. I think the problem is more about my counting than the baby's growth - he looks perfect if you ignore the calendar!

 

Good luck with your scan, I hope we all have sticky, healthy pregnancies.

Yay 2cats!! That's so exciting!!! Congrats, I'm sure everything will keep going well for you :)

 

Charlie - that's amazing they can see it at 5 weeks, sounds like a strong little beat!

 

Heartmyboys and eks81 good luck with your scans, let us know now you go!!

 

And thanks mrsshine for the luck :)

 

It will be such a relief to get the ok, as the doctor has been wary with my low hcg levels! So would just like to get on and enjoy my pregnancy

Hi,

I had a dating scan last week. I wasn't necessarily going to have one but my doctor requested it because I have a long irregular cycle and so she wanted to get better idea of dates.

I had abdominal scan and the scan lady was excellent and told me straight away everything I needed to know to put my mind at ease. I have heard other stories of the scanner not telling anything.

She found the bub and heart beat straight away, we saw it easily, very cool. Told me it was inside my uterus and that there was only one. it was measuring .79cm, equating to 6wk 5 days, and that heart beat was 141. Showed me and talked me through everything we were seeing and she was measuring.

She took a few measurements of the embryo, all the same, the yolk sac, my cervix, and ovaries.

Took probably 10 mins all up. Waited half hour for the pics and then took all the pictures home with us too!very happy overall with how it went.

I wait and see my OB/gyn now at 12ish weeks. She didn't really want to see me before that. So patiently waiting until then!

Good luck everyone going soon :)

Just enjoy it now! There will always be something to worry about, even when the 'baby' is a full grown adult! So I think just choose to enjoy it all. There are no guarantees in life, so we can live in fear, or just live! I haven't had any blood testing, wouldn't know the first thing about hcg levels! They are not going to change anything, so why stress unnecessarily?

Chances are everything will be fine :heart::)

I was meant to have one closer to 9 weeks for dating purposes but due to bleeding the Dr wanted me checked sooner. They found a sac, yolk sac and HB at 6+1 but could only see it internally :)

Got my blood test results yesterday. Hcg was lower than I expected, so obviously my cycle was a lot more out of whack than I originally thought last month as it appears as though we conceived on what should have been day 4 of my period! I can't help but worry about the level, even though I know it's perfectly normal for 4 - 5 weeks. I guess I just can't believe I truly conceived that late and expected to be further along! I'm having another blood test tomorrow to confirm the levels are increasing but I can't help but worry! If the blood test is right and I am only 5 weeks, I due 3 days before christmas....eek!

Oh and MandeePandee, I've never had to pay for a scan, I just get referred by my GP and it's bulk billed.

Jade I've actually taken your advice on board, I've stopped googling everyone's hcg levels, it's out of my control.

 

So I am taking your advice and enjoying my pregnancy now, your right, there is always going to be something to worry about.

Good to hear! There are so many unknowns, the anxiety is understandable. I'm doing my best not to worry too much as well.

Hi ladies

when i had DS (almost 3) i paid for all my scans and dr's apt until 12 weeks. There are places that bulk bill and apparently if you have health care card you get discount but normally around 150-200 and you get 50 back from medicare.

 

I am due (according to due date calenders on this website) between 18th and 25th december (4-5 weeks currently)i asked doc for dating scan and he told me they arent done until between 8-12 weeks my last on was done when DS was 5.5 weeks, how can you have accurate due date if you dont get the scan done?

Cai's mummy I would do what your dr said, wait until about 7-8 weeks for a dating scan. You won't see anything at this early stage and if you don't see a heartbeat you're likely to freak out. A dating scan done between 7-11 weeks will give you a reasonably accurate due date.

Cai's mummy, I had a google and found a place at Redcliffe who bulk bills ! Absolutely stoked $200 is a lot for a scan that you don't see much . I am booked in on Friday when I should be 6wk3d , I know you won't see a lot but hopefully a heartbeat and a better idea of dates - as I have no idea when we conceived as my periods haven't been that regular .

That's weird... Mine measured at 7.9mm which estimated me at 6.5 wks.

Did they readjust your date or was 6.4 what it come out at from the scan?

Unfortunately, I've had 4 u/s already and only 7 weeks. But that's because I had a bleed, then they couldn't find heart beat. Then a week later found HB but its an angular pregnancy(I'd never heard of it before). But it means its in the angle just outside of the Fallopian tube so they need to monitor closely in case it ruptures my R) Fallopian tube. I do agree there is so much to worry about and it's hard not to as the pregnancy tends to take up most of your waking thoughts.

I had a scan at 6w5d after some spotting, saw the heartbeat (165bpm) and baby measured 7mm and was told all looks normal. I am now 9 weeks and think I might go for another scan next week to make sure bubs is still ok.

Good luck to everyone having their first scan xx
