Last night freaked me out so much. I woke up at around 1:30am to a sharp cramping feeling. Thankfully there was no blood or anything but it scared me SO MUCH. I think it was a combination of having to pee, my 50lb pitbull laying directly on top of me (how he got there, I have no clue! lol), and hunger or growing pains but I had such a hard time sleeping afterwards. I swear, can Oct 5th come any faster??? I just want to see that I have a happy healthy bean growing in there!
Welcome Maze ! I was such a mess in the very early stages after I got my BFP. PAL is so hard!
Oh Ninja! I'm sorry you were freaking out last night. I remember having lots and lots of stomach pains and stomach pressure at that stage. It's never easy with any aches and pains and pressure. I think I ate something that didn't agree with me on Monday night, and I was up for a few hours with sharp pains in my stomach. It definitely scared me! October 5th will be here before you know it!
So AFM, I'm over 10 weeks!! On Tuesday, I was able to use my doppler and find the heartbeat!! I was shocked because I couldn't find my daughter's until around 12-13 weeks. But there it was, the beautiful fast galloping horse sound. I was able to find it Wednesday as well, since my daughter wanted to use the doppler, even though she still doesnt know about the baby. But knowing I can find it, makes me definitely feel a bit better!
Thanks... on the plus side (funny that it's a plus) I am still sick as a dog. Last night I craved chili. Today, as I was dishing leftover chili for my lunch I wanted to hurl. Sense of smell def feels heightened, that's for sure! lol. At least the symptoms are comforting as much as they suck to deal with.
Ninja - my u/s is on Oct 4, so a day before yours and it does seem like it is taking forever to get here!!! Once we are through the weekend, it will just be a couple more days hope it flies by for you.
tweak - that is so exciting you can hear the heartbeat on your doppler!!! what a wonderful sound
I had my 8 week scan today, and they found another one!! That being said, one baby has a nice heartbeat of 170, but measured 7w4d even though they say I should be 8+1, and I thought I was 8+2. I'm trying not to stress, as the hb was strong, and I've read all over the place that measurements can be off by up to a week. The other baby only measured 6w2d and was too small to get a heartbeat reading, although there was something there. The tech is pretty sure I'll lose that one, but at least there's one strong little bub.
Anyone have any thoughts on the measuring smaller, or much smaller twin?
I have no experience with twins but with dd we went in at 6+4 and she measured 5+6. I was positive of my dates and even felt implantation happen. By 10 weeks she was 2 days behind and by 12 she was a day a head. When they are that small so many things play in to it like quality/age of equipment, skill of tech, size/growth of individual baby (like adults are not all the same size neither are babies).
As for twins they grow slightly differently as well I hope the smaller baby will catch up and next scan you get great news. GL
That's fantastic ninja - glad your u/s went well! I had mine on Oct 4th and baby was measuring two days ahead of expected at 7w6days with an EDD of May 17th heartbeat was around 170. Was a beautiful thing to see! Now I am counting down to my next appointment on Oct 31 for my 11 week u/s - i will feel much better after that one if all goes well. fingers crossed!
Oh Amanda. I'm sorry to hear they found another baby that was much smaller But it sounds like you have one strong baby there, with a nice heartbeat. I have heard of people measuring up to a week smaller, even my u/s tech said it's like a 1-2 week range of how the baby could be measuring. I hope the smaller baby will grow and catch up, and you get good news at your next scan.
Congrats on a good scans Ninja and Starlight!! That's awesome! Strong heartbeats!!
I had my 11 week appt yesterday. I was SO nervous, bc my symptoms have really subsided these past couple days, and I really don't feel pregnant. She put the doppler wand on my belly and immediately found the heartbeat! Nice and strong and fast, and 170s like it was at my last ultrasound. Such a relief. I think she was surprised how fast she found it, and how loud it was. Still waiting on my call to set up my NT scan. It needs to be done between 11 and 13 weeks, so they better call me soon. I just can't wait to see this little baby again!
