I didn't hear the heartbeat at 6 weeks but I saw it. The next week we heard the heartbeat loud and clear twice. I was amazed that something the size of a seed could have a heartbeat. at 7 weeks the hb was 162 and it was amazing to hear but it can't compare to my last scan where the baby was rolling around and very active.
Hi ladies, hope everyone here in the states had a good thanksgiving!
Welcome Annie, congrats on the bfp!
Sunshine, I hope your scan is awesome on Tuesday. Those super early scans are so nerve wracking because of the wide range of what is possible for you to see. I hope your baby ( or babies!) make it easy on you and show a nice strong hb. Don't worry about the lack of ms, mine didn't show up until a little after 8 weeks.
Harvest, hope you are hanging in there. That is funny about the mashed potatoes. The only foods that taste 100% good to me are carbs and starches, so I eat them several times a week. Dh says the twins are going to become potatoes given how much I eat them.
AFM, I am officially in the 2nd tri today!! Now I just need to reach that magical point I keep hearing about where I have energy and want to eat.
Yes don't worry about m/s. everyone is different and you might be one of the lucky ones (like me) who didn't get it. I know its one of those comforting symptoms that lets you know everything is good. Mine was the heightened sense of smell and food aversions.
Sunshine don't worry about the no ms, mine didn't start until 7 weeks so it is still early. As for the HB we saw 1 of ours at 5+5 which was super early but maybe you will get lucky!
My next scan is on Tuesday too, I will be 10+2. Can't believe the 1st tri is almost over already! Can't wait to start telling people, I am sure they already know though, all my clothes are getting tight! I went to try on maternity clothes last night and they showed off my tummy when all i want to do is hide it, guess I need to keep looking, ugh!
Congrats on being in the 2nd tri michelle
Have a good weekend ladies!
Thanks to you ladies for the reassurance...dont know what I would do without you all! I can't help but drive myself crazy sometimes.
Annie that is awesome that we have the same due date (at least for now).
Congrats on being in the second tri Michelle and wantanerd! Harvest and mumtoone yall are next! Harvest...good luck at your scan this week. If you can, post pictures! As far as maternity clothes, soon you won't have to worry about hiding that bump, you can show it off!!
Wantanerd, that test sounds awful! Sorry you had to deal with that. But on the bright side, welcome to the 2nd tri!
Harvest, maternity clothes totally show off your bump rather than help hide it! I got some maternity clothes last weekend and I am going to wear them to work this week since my regular clothes no longer fit comfortably. It is making me a little nervous because the cat will really be out of the bag now! Good luck at your scan tomorrow, keep us updated.
Sunshine, good luck with your scan tomorrow as well! Hope everything looks perfect, keep us updated.
